This video came from the European leg of the 1983 WHAMMY! tour, so if you know that album, or saw that tour, you know what to expect. I saw this tour at RED ROCKS in Colorado, and at first, I was pretty upset. They were one of the earliest bands to use the FAIRLIGHT, which was a synth-sampler that could be completely programmed to play drum parts, guitar samples, and synthesizers. During the actual tour, they would come out and open with SONG FOR A FUTURE GENERATION, but with NO MUSICIANS PLAYING. All the music came from the synth program, while the five original B52s did their line dance on stage, and told you their favorite food, and their astrological sign. (I was furious when i saw them live, believing that would be the WHOLE SHOW, but it wasnt of course.) After their "introduction song" they grab their instruments to play PLANET CLAIRE, Ricky Wilson and Keith take to the drums and the oddly strung guitar(and occasional bass) they used, while KATE played the keyboard for both synth bass parts, and those wierd B-52s keyboard harmonies. This show provides two TV cameras worth of close ups on the band, and a backround camera, so you get to watch both the whole stage show, as well as humongeous close ups of Cindy's bongo workouts, Fred on toy piano, and Kate playing her keyboard parts. So, you can pause the DVD, and learn the secret notes to ROCK LOBSTER! ALRIGHT! For the songs from the first two albums, Cindy's bongo sound is superfluous, tho she almost starts a fire when they performed BIG BIRD. That's when Cindy slaps them skins. MESOPOTAMIA is when the two sax players get to flip out during their solos. (tho they get featured here and there, for texture.) Its only after they get thru the heavily orchrestrated (for the times) material from MESOPOTAMIA, and WHAMMY!Read more ›

This DVD blew me away! Brought back lots of fond memories of "The Worlds Greatest Party Band". Great camera work for a piece thats 27 years old. See the B's as they were before the cosmic wagon train. Great to see founding member Ricky Wilson (R.I.P.) and the band sweating to the oldies. Its only 7 songs (would love to find the rest) but its a great ride back in time. Peace!

I agree with the other reviewers, this may be short, but it dang, sure is good!!!! This is some great, rare, early, dvd footage of the B-52's performing live before an audience, in Germany, during 1983. This is the U.S.A., Southern Rock's contribution to the "punk" & "post-punk", music scene, and they are terrific. This includes the late/great B-52's guitarist Rickey Wilson, a brother to band member, Cindy Wilson. The B-52's performed at New York City's "Max's Kansas City", in 1977, and they were well received. They became just as popular as "punk" & "post-punk", bands that performed at CBGB's, like Blondie, The Ramones, & Talking Heads & many others. In fact the B-52's did perform at CBGB's in NYC. If you like the B-52's, you'll love this one for sure. Thanks!!!

Oh hell yes! This DVD is simply amazing - classic B's at the top of their game... and with Ricky to boot! Sound and video quality of the DVD is NOT HD year 2011, but is par for the VHS year 1983 course. I know that the "With the Wild Crowd" DVD is due out next year (in 2012), but I'd much rather see more of these concerts leak out - here's wishing and hoping for more classic B-52s. THE best live band ever, watching Fred gyrate with youthful vigor is the best thing since shoelaces.

This is a very high energy performance that exceeds my wildest expectations. Here's the downside. It is a short concert - 30 minutes and the video quality could be better. Here's the upside - it's the bestest and craziest 30 minutes you'll ever watch. I own many many live concert DVD's - a couple Queens' including Live-Aid, Roger Water's Pink Floyd Live, Stop Making Sense, several James Brown concerts, The Stones, Hendrix, The Who..., every Frank Sinatra that exists and easily 50+ other concert DVD's. This B-52's DVD ranks up there with any one of them. These guys are on fire! Words can't really describe the energy Fred displays on this, not to mention the rest of them. Sure, the video quality could be better, but is well worth the small sacrifice and we quickly forget about it once the show starts. You'd have to be comatose to not want to get up and dance. I'm curious if Fred was "on" something here or maybe he had just drank 3 pots of coffee. Whatever he's on/doing or not doing, it works! And then there is the very sexy/erotic Cindy Wilson with her vocals and bongos. WOW! They're all on top of their game here. It's impossible to not immediatly rewatch this when it's over. I am glad I found this rare gem and it is truly a welcome addition to my collection. I have no doubt you will love it too! If only these guys(and others)would have filmed more concerts...
