hello all i was checking out amazon and saw a 3 dvd set called the kinks - you really got me, with commentary by dave! almost 3 hours of video. naturally i ordered it it ships march 4.has anyone heard anything about this item? i hope it isn't like the other dvd's with critics sitting around discussing the kinks, the various forums are more knowledgable then the critics. it sure sounds like it could be a good one.
here is my review: disc one has interviews with dave mick dalton and gosling. i don't know when they were done so its hard to know how current they are.there is also audio of dave from an interview in 1980. there is performance video bits which are from the in performance dvd which is disc two. disc three is the critical review dvd. the interview disc is the best one of the three. apparently this is a bundling of the 2 previously released dvd's with the new dave interview disc. it is nice to get daves perspective but all in all i would not recommend this. hopefully an authorized dvd will be released there is so much history with the kinks i can't believe it hasn't been done properly with the brothers d's approval and cooperation, i mean tom petty has a 4 hour documentary about his career and no disrepect to any of his fans here but please, he's not in the same boat as the kinks.
