RE: Cheap Trick DVD: - Or VHS: What's great, what's not?
This is selfish of me, but - I want to be certain that I have ALL of the best of Cheap Trick. I haven't been to a CT concert in ages and I am desperate for a Cheap Fix. I'm buying some DVD's damitt! Which are your favorites? Which ones need improvement? All opinions welcome. Which ones are the best of you-know-who??? (Jason, behave.)

I'm sure you'll get plenty of input, but wondering if you already have any of their dvds, or are we starting from scratch?


I just LOVE being a Cheap Trick fan!

I'd like some input, too. Just started experiencing the entire Cheap Trick catalog since I saw them in December (Fort Worth) for the first time, and discovering new songs and videos on a weekly basis...

I only knew about 9 or 10 songs before that, so still catching up. :p DVD's I own so far:

- Every Trick in the Book
- Music for Hangovers
- Live at Budokan (off of iTunes)

Thanks!

The commentary on Music For Hangovers is priceless!!!

The things the guys say on From Tokyo To You are also really funny...Live In Australia is excellent as wellSmile

Have fun collecting!...You really can't go wrong with any CT dvd out there...They're ALL worth gettingSmile

Meg, are you talking about official DVD's or bootleg DVD's?

Both.
I see Every Trick in the Book is for sale on e-bay and Amazon. And even though Sgt. Pepper's isn't my favorite concert of theirs, I'm going to spring for that one as well.
Any more that I should have? Smile

On a related topic, I would LOVE if their Sendai concert (broadcast on BS2 in Japan) was be officially released, and at least part of the money raised go to help Japan.

I love this album and the DVD. Here's what is on the DVD:

1. Say Goodbye (video) this is in black & white and Robin is looking especially fine in this one!

2. Hot Love (live version)

3. Hard To Tell (live version)

4. Woke Up With A Monster (video)

5. He's A Whore (live from 1976) it's rather grainy, being so early on in the career, but great all the same.

Well worth the money you will spend!!!!
