SIMPLY RED Stars
Eagle Rock EREDV435 (2005)
The ginger one with stars in his eyes...

Simply Red are one of the UK's most successful acts of the late 80s/early 90s and this DVD charts every aspect of their multi platinum 'Stars' album. Released in 1991 it topped the UK album charts for an astonishing 19 weeks and went on to become the biggest selling album of 1991 in the UK (not bad when you consider it was up against GnRs 'Use Your Illusion' and U2s 'Achtung Baby'!!).

As with other DVDs in this series you get to see and hear the stories behind the writing, recording and the songs themselves. Frontman Mick Hucknell talks in depth about not only this but the general state of the band at the time; interviews with the other band members, manager and producers are also an insight to this time in the band's history.

Bonus features include piano and vocal renditions of both 'For Your Babies' and 'Wonderland' and Mick discussing his pre Simply Red musical activities and interviews with the band on joining Simply Red.

Like them or not, this DVD is a fascinating insight into the world of Simply Red.

***** Out of this world | **** Pretty damn fine |
*** OK, approach with caution unless you are a fan |
** Instant bargain bin fodder | * Ugly. Just ugly
