Inside Thin Lizzy
Classic Rock Productions
This DVD is subtitled an independent critical review and for once this isn’t a load of hoey. This is excellent critical analysis of the band that was Thin Lizzy. It contains several well known rock critics, including Malcolm Dome, casting a critical eye of Thin Lizzy’s body of work. As its so analytical this might not be a DVD for everyone, but those are interested in the band will find it most satisfying. The quality is good enough that this DVD (and the series from whence it came) can be use by students studyng music and culture. Musicians will eat this up as well, as there is some rather interesting examination of evolution of the Thin Lizzy sound and the arrangement of their music. The DVD’s is just long enough not to get dull. This was a good band to start with and it has made me interested in some of the other bands examined including Led Zepellin, Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath and Rainbow. This runs the thin line between the acedemic and documentary, and successfully. A highly recomended look at a rather good, if not always great, hard rock band.
NB: This DVD is available in both NTS and PAL format.
