Product Description

about this title: a&m video presents janet jackson: the rhythm nation compilation, featuring the videos from jackson's 1989 breakthrough album. originally released in 1990, this program features videos for "miss you much," "escapade," "black cat," "alright," "come back to me," and "love will never do (without you)" directed by fashion photographer herb ritts

Amazon.com

The Rhythm Nation Compilation gathers all seven, wildly popular and somewhat influential music videos based on songs from Janet Jackson's hit 1989 album, Rhythm Nation 1814. With a minimum of self-congratulatory distractions, the anthology gets down to business, rolling out such memorable productions as Swordfish director Dominic Sena's "Miss You Much," shot in black and white and underscoring Jackson's image as an accessible, normal young woman with a lot of playful friends. "Rhythm Nation," also helmed by Sena, is still disarming with its vaguely martial look and feel, as well as Jackson's then-trademark, staccato-choppy choreography. Other highlights include the south-of-the-border exotica of "Escapade," the long version of director Julien Temple's glossy "Alright" (featuring Cab Calloway, Cyd Charisse, and the Nicholas Brothers), and the dreamy "Love Will Never Do (Without You)," shot by famed photographer Herb Ritts and introducing the more womanly, sexier Jackson we know today. --Tom Keogh

Format: DVD
This is a very good compilation DVD, containing the seven hits from Janet's "Rhythm Nation" album that became radio and MTV favorites. Hers were some of the top dance songs of that time, and a couple of the videos are absolute classics. There are no surprises here: what you get is the best of big-budget video making from 1989-1990, with lavish sets, lots of dancers, and great cinematography, courtesy of excellent directors. Dominic Sena's direction is the most represented, with three of the videos. Peter Smillie, Julian Temple, Wayne Isham and Herb Ritts contribute one each.
For those of you who are already familiar with these videos, the following may be of interest:
Thumbs-Up #1: "Miss You Much" contains the 35-second choreographed "chair sequence" (I didn't know what to call it) at the end. MTV showed this regularly at first, but phased it out after the video had been in heavy rotation for awhile. I always love watching this part, and often wonder how many takes were needed to get it perfect.
Thumbs-Up #2: "Love Will Never Do (Without You)" features the fully black-and-white version, which I feel is far superior to the alternate (partly colorized) version contained on the "Design of a Decade" DVD. This is Janet at her all-time sexiest, and Mr. Ritts proves that his mastery of b/w images translates well from photo to video. I never tire of watching his work, especially this one.
Thumbs-Up #3: "Alright" is the extended version (including Heavy D's rap).
Not a Thumbs-Up: "Rhythm Nation" is not the "long form" which won awards a couple years after the album came out. I was hoping this was included . . . but no.
As far as extras go, there are some, but not many.

Format: DVD
The Rhythm Nation era contains her best music and best music videos ever of her career and is a solid period for janet in my most humble opinion. The music, the memorable moves, the voice, the songwriting, the melodies and last but not least, the music videos sum up everything that represents the true janet, in addition to the humanitarian side of janet which is well represented on this DVD as well. Even if you already own the Design of a Decade DVD with has all the Rhythm Nation videos, on this compilation, Miss You Much features the chair sequence at the end, heavy d makes an appearance in the Alright video and Love Will Never Do Without You is in black and white in it's entirety.

Format: DVD
Although recent outings have proven highly subpar in recent years, I still never can get enough of the high quality of the 1989 through 1990 videos of the videos from her magnum opus Rhythm Nation 1814. Entitled "The Rhythm Nation Compilation", this is a brilliant and groundshattering collection of seven of the most popular videos of all time on one DVD!

It's about time this came out too. The video version I had had worn out from so much watching but the DVD not only is superior in sound qualit, it's also benifited from a visual clean-up job and the images are much better and sharper too to give it a much more modern feel.

Call me strange by saying this but I found Janet to be worlds sexier in the "Miss You Much" and "Black Cat" videos than in recent ones like "All For You" and even "If". MYM is without a doubt probably my all time favorite video by any woman artist to this very day and includes the legendary chair-routine that has been copied numerous times in the 16 years since it was filmed.

Older fans will dig this DVD and younger fans need to get this to see a much different (and sadly once a much more mature Janet than now) Janet than they are familiar with.

Format: VHS Tape
Movie Description

One of the true divas of pop and rhythm 'n' blues, one of the youngest and cutest members of the Jackson family, Janet, topped charts and took names with her album RHYTHM NATION 1814. This eponymous video is a so-called "Telemusical" which consists of 4 songs off of the album--"Black Cat," "Miss You Much," "The Knowledge," and "Rhythm Nation--as well as plenty of dancing and exclusive behind-the-scenes footage.

Format: DVD
I have been waiting for this Janet title, among others, to be released on DVD. I was ecstatic to finally get it because I had all but worn my tape out. It is even more outstanding on the DVD because of the instant video selection, and of course, the sound. It is excellent. Wow! It sounds even better than the Rhythm Nation CD. I kid you not! If you were a Rhythm Nation fan, or if you are a Janet fan, this is a must have. It is by far Janet's most versatile collection of videos from a singular album. Get it today, and you won't be sorry. Miss You Much, Rhythm Nation, Escapade, Black Cat, Alright, Come Back to Me, and Love Will Never Do (Without You)...need I say more? You NEED this DVD.
The "All For You" Special Edition CD/DVD hits at the end of this November, and the "Design of a Decade" DVD hits in early December. Be on the look-out for all of Janet's best! Enjoy the "Rhythm Nation Compilation" DVD in the meanwhile. It could not be better!
