Gil Scott-Heron And His Amnesia Express - Tales Of Gil
Reviewed by: Keith DudhnathRead Keith Dudhnath's film review of Gil Scott-Heron And His Amnesia Express - Tales Of Gil
The picture quality is a little poor, although this is due to the source material rather than the DVD transfer. The sound quality is exquisite, a real treat to listen to.
Extras are thin on the ground. Allowing for a choice of camera angles would have added real value to this DVD, sadly this hasn't been considered. The introduction and commentary by Kevin Le Gendre weave between interesting and annoying. Some people might like a brief yet informed explanation as to what each song is about, but, for most, listening to the music and working it out for themselves will suffice.
A weak DVD, filled with powerful music.Reviewed on: 04 Oct 2002
