Editorial Reviews

Isaac Hayes is one of the most influential and respected figures in Black American music. In a career that dates back to the start of the sixties he has had top selling singles, released ground breaking albums, composed the Grammy and Oscar winning film score for "Shaft", supplied the voice of Chef in "South Park" and written innumerable hit songs for other artists. Isaac Hayes has made several appearances at Montreux but this one, his most recent appearance from 2005, undoubtedly captures him at his very best with trademark performances of all his best-known tracks.

The encore from the 2005 show where Isaac Hayes is joined by the legendary Booker T & The MGs, the Stax Records house band, for renditions of some of the hit songs he wrote for other Stax artists including "Soul Man" and "I Stand Accused" (all to be confirmed).

Continuing with their collection of excellent concert films from the Montreux Jazz Festival, Eagle Vision gives us a 2005 performance from the legendary Alice Cooper.

I have to say I was interested in seeing what kind of stage show Alice puts on, but what surprised me was how very good the songs were.

Let's face it. Alice Cooper has been about as far off the musical map as you can get since about 1976 or so.

But for me, "The Coop", as many of his fans called him back then, was a defining influence on my life.

I first discovered Alice as a teenager in the seventies. If it is your high school years that define who you will become in your adult life, the fact that Alice Cooper was my adolescent hero probably explains a lot.

You see, I discovered Alice completely by accident. I was 15 years old and had bought tickets to see The James Gang (Joe Walsh's first band) at the Paramount when word came down that they had cancelled the show. My options at the time we're either get my money back or exchange the tickets for another show. It just so happened that Alice Cooper was playing Seattle a few weeks later as part of the "Killer" tour.

To a lot of my rocker pals at the time, the fact that the guy's name was Alice was enough to convince them to stay far away.

Not me.

The only thing I really knew about Alice back then was that "I'm Eighteen" was a pretty damn decent rock tune, and that according to Circus Magazine he was known to rip up live chickens onstage.

Freak Show? Hell, yeah, at fifteen I was most definitely in.

For the next two years after seeing Alice Cooper that night--basically my entire time in high school--I listened to Alice Cooper every single day.

Although everybody from Kiss back then to Marilyn Manson now would basically devote entire careers to stealing his act, what I witnessed on the Killer tour that night was like nothing I had ever seen before.

In some of my other music DVD reviews, I take the tact of applying a set of standards to a release and establishing how the DVD in question measures up. Let me say in advance that when I take this tact, it usually means that I was disappointed in the release. Such is the case with Alice Cooper Live at Montreux 2005.

A memo should go out to all bands and music DVD producers that says at minimum: "1) Music DVD's should be produced to the highest standards. 2) The musical performances within should represent the talent that made the studio recorded CDs sell. 3) Theatrics are very cool too, as long as you can pull them off without deterioration in the quality of the music."

Let's break it down then for Live at Montreux:

1 - "Music DVD's should be produced to the highest standards." - The picture quality in Live at Montreux is outstanding. It's a high-def recording that is stunning in its clarity. Unfortunately, the director has chosen to indulge in what he feels is "cool production" versus giving the viewer a front row seat to the performance. The visual often jumps around similar to the music video format of "4 seconds then cut to another view". In fact there are segments where I couldn't count 2 seconds off before the camera angle switches. It was like staring at a strobe light. This made for a viewing experience that ruined the illusion of having a front row seat to the show.

However, the Welcome To My Nightmare theatric 4-song medley was an exception to this abomination. The director must have become as captivated as I was, because the shots actually lasted long enough to take them in before changing angles.

The sound is great in Dolby 5.1. You get your choice between Dolby Stereo, Dolby 5.1 or DTS. Dolby 5.

Continuing with their collection of excellent concert films from the Montreux Jazz Festival, Eagle Vision gives us a 2005 performance from the legendary Alice Cooper. For over thirty years Alice Cooper has held the title as the "Godfather of Shock Rock" with bands such as KISS and Motley Crue following in his influential footsteps. For this concert Alice would be performing in support of his to be released "Dirty Diamonds" CD (of which several tracks are presented for the viewer to enjoy). However, like many Artists who place too much focus on a new release Alice and Company make sure to provide an absolutely heavy amount of classics from his extensive back catalog. Most of his hits are now legendary parts of Hard Rock music culture and I think even the most distant of music fans knows that "School's Out" and "Billion Dollar Babies" are Cooper tracks. Fortunately these and many others are present but as you watch this concert there is a couple of things that stand out very quickly about the show. You'll find that there is not much of an emphasis of the showman from the Nightmarish carnival that he usually brings around with him. The stage itself is not garish in design and no one is really in any sort of costume change except Cooper who has several during the performance while using a number of small props. He has a female dancer who also goes through a number of costume/character changes during the show and she does really well. It was a great difference to the Cooper experience for while its common knowledge about his level of visual talent and capacity, this showed that while it's an important part of his show, it can be used minimally and still have a maximum impact on the audience.Read more ›
