Editorial Reviews

SIMPLY RED, with their soulful pop songs, will go down in history as one of the UK's biggest and most successful pop bands of the late eighties and early nineties. Formed in 1984, Mick Hucknall and co. released their debut album "Picture Book" in 1985, which went platinum, making SIMPLY RED one of that year's major success stories. Their following albums, "Men And Women" and "A New Flame" respectively, continued this success but it was the arrival of SIMPLY RED's fourth album "Stars", released in September 1991 that would change history forever.

"Stars" would top the UK charts for nineteen weeks and become the biggest selling album on 1991 in the UK, making SIMPLY RED a household name. They also achieved phenomenal success around the world with "Stars" spawning two top ten hits, "For Your Babies" and the title track "Stars" as well as three top forty hits, "Something Got Me Started", "Thrill Me" and "Your Mirror". "Stars" would go on and sell in excess of eight-and-a-half million copies by the middle of 1993.

Simply Red - Stars Classic Album sees Mick Hucknall talk candidly about the writing and recording of the album and the goings on inside the SIMPLY RED camp at the time. Also featured are exclusive interviews with the band members Gota Yashiki (drums), Shaun Ward (bass), Fritz McIntyre (keyboards), Heitor T.P. (guitars), Ian Kirkman (saxaphone) as well as interviews from Chris Joyce (original drummer), Elliot Rashman (manager 84-97), Stewart Levine (producer), Lamont Dozier (songwriter/musician) and many more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mick brings it all together May 16, 2005
Verified Purchase
As a new fan of Simply Red, and Mick Hucknall, I found this documentary most interesting. The forming of the band itself, the background and inspiration for the songs, the recording of same, was an eyeopener for me.The talent of the band members, and the creation, by Mick of some of my favorites i.e. For Your Babies, Stars, Your Mirror etc. just increased my appreciation for them. At my age (ancient) I never dreamed I would discover a singer-composer as talented as Mick Hucknall. I hope he would understand when I place him on the same plane as John Lennon. Different, but both extraordinarily talented and conscious of the inequities of their respective times. I would recommend this DVD to all who appreciate real talent. Christine

5.0 out of 5 stars More of his magical music. March 29, 2014
Verified Purchase
I love this as I love everything he sings but I didn't realize it was more documentary than concert so this was a very pleasant surprise when I listened to it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Simply Red, Simply Dissappointed! April 22, 2011
Verified Purchase
Received this DVD and I should have paid closer attention to reveiw feedback as this dvd was not what I expected! I was looking for more a dvd that played Simply Reds songs in their entirety. I love Simply Red's music and this dvd gives background verbiage on the Stars CD and that is it! Not one song is played in it's entirety. If you are looking for music you will not get it on this dvd. Little dissappointed!
