The Shadows Concert Films
The Final Tour
Runtime: 2 hr 17 minAfter almost a year of songwriting, arranging, pre-production, recording, mixing and mastering, Angra's fifth full length studio album is finally ready. Temple Of Shadows is definitely the bands most mature, creative and daring effort to date. It's a refreshing record, even though the group has not given up embracing the melodic metal that has always been its trademark.
Temple Of Shadows is a concept album. Its story was created by guitarist Rafael Bittencourt and tells the saga of The Shadow Hunter, an 11th century crusader soldier who questions the Catholic Church ideals. The series of events since his first questioning to the way it affects his whole life is narrated along 13 tracks that show the band in its prime form. Several heavy metal genres and sub-genres are portrayed in the album, masterly crafted by the talents of Edu Falaschi (vocals), Kiko Loureiro (guitars), Rafael Bittencourt (guitars), Felipe Andreoli (bass) and Aquiles Priester (drums).
The Shadows Top Tracks
Runtime: 1 hr 30 minFrom his hardcore '50s Memphis rockabilly start to his symphonic 1960s pop masterpieces and his stunning 1980s comeback, Roy Orbison's uniformly extraordinary recordings still rank today as some of American music's finest. Gifted with a soaring voice that conjured vulnerability and loss with acute precision, the Texas-born singer-songwriter-guitarist wasted no time-- he had his own radio show at age ten and formed his first rock 'n' roll band, The Teen Kings, in 1955. Recording at Sam Phillips' legendary Sun Studios alongside Jerry Lee Lewis and Johnny Cash, Orbison was still seeking his ideal sound and, after parting ways with Sun, finally found it, with 1960's ""Only The Lonely."" Orbison's creativity gave birth to a unique, highly individualized, orchestral pop-rock style that resulted in a series of masterpieces and made him an international star. By 1988, Orbison was enjoying a dream comeback: topping the charts with songs that once again cemented his reputation as a pop genius; but ultimately, death claimed him too soon. In Dreams (which marks this legend's 70th Anniversary) is a definitive 90-minute documentary that charts the entire grand trajectory of his unrivaled career and includes in-depth interviews with Roy as well as many of his admirers.
Live and Wild in Preston
Runtime: 49 minThe Troggs have a 36 year history and at a concert in Preston in the UK during spring 2002 they played to a sell out audience and in return performed a "Global Jukebox" of the majority of their worldwide hits. Wet Wet Wet covered their "Love Is All Around", taking it to number 1 in the UK charts for 15 weeks. Despite that success the band are wary of committing themselves to recording any new material and are even limiting the number of concert appearances they make in future. Reg said "I don't really enjoy too much touring so we are stopping doing long tours in the future". This film is a succinct collection of songs that provides a neat reminder of the very large part The Troggs played in developing the classic sixties sound.
The Everly Brothers
Runtime: 1 hr 15 minWhen asked recently for the most memorable moment of his career, Phil Everly replied “the Albert Hall reunion”. It was September 1983, and ten years on from one of the most acrimonious splits in popular music history, when the Everly Brothers, Don and Phil, took to the stage at London’s Royal Albert Hall. The Everlys had dominated the charts in the late fifties and early to mid sixties. Their close harmony singing, acoustic guitars and brilliant songwriting had become instantly recognisable and inspired millions of fans worldwide. On an emotional night in London, the reunion was a success and led to the renewal of their partnership and many more years of success, which continue to this day. Bonus Features: “Rock ‘n’ Roll Odyssey” – this documentary, made at the same time as the Albert Hall reunion, tells the complete story of the Everly Brothers up to that point in time. Don and Phil tell their story with additional contributions from Linda Ronstadt, Chet Atkins and many more.
