Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone Bill Wyman formed A.I.M.S. (Ambitions, Ideas, Motivation, Success) as a project to give up and coming bands a chance to record and perform along with some of the the hottest recording artists today. To select the most deserving bands, Mr Wyman held a Europe wide 'Battle Of The Bands' series, the finalists from which were invited to play at the world-renowned Royal Albert Hall at the AIMS Gala. This one hour program is the record of the superstar segment of that significant event, featuring superb performances by some of the most outstanding musicians of our time like Ron Wood, Elvis Costello, Chrissie Hynde, Chris Rea and more.

Format:DVD
In 1988 Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman organized a benefit concert at London's Royal Albert Hall to not only benefit The Great Ormond Street Hospital in London but to give exposure to local bands in 10 towns in England. Five of the top bands played the concert followed by a lot of Wyman's well-known friends who performed in some -often unusual combinations. The concert was filmed by Wyman forgot he had the tapes until 2006 when the concert was released in the UK on DVD from Classic Studio. This DVD is the one released and distributed by MVDvisual in the US in 2011. It's a real gem for music fans - especially those with wide range of pop and rock interest.

There are two parts to the program. The one most will be interested in is the Superstar section which runs about 75 minutes. It starts off with Elvis Costello and the Pretenders' Chrissie Hynde performing duet versions (with just two acoustic guitars) of Lennon-McCartney's "There's A Place", The Kinks' "days" and - a real oddball, that works - the Bachrach/David song (recorded by Dionne Warwick) "Windows of the World". Next up is Chris Rea on both guitars and keyboards for three numbers. Then comes what is billed as The All-Star Band. It certainly is! In addition to Wyman on bass, there is fellow Stone Ronnie Wood, Eddy Grant, Ian Drury and Phil Collins (with a nearly full head of hair - remember this is 1988) as one of the two drummers. The band works it's way through standards like "Johnnie B. Goode", and the Freddy Cannon classic "Tallahassee Lassie" (with Drury on lead vocals) before winding it up with Wood and Terrence Trent D'arby leading everyone in the stones classics "It's All Over Now" and, finally, "Honky Tonk Women". The camera work is great and sound real fine.
