WOW! Shinding! preserves and documents the shift in rock in the mid sixties. This was filmed in black and white and the sound is mono, intended for crummy television speakers, so in these digital days if you are looking for a technically superior delivery you will be extremely disappointed.
What these groups often do is lip synch their hits and entertain without the benefits of props or MTV types of video antics. They rely on the music and the magnitude of their personalities. Obviously it worked because the Mamas & Papas, Byrds , Donovan, Yardbirds and Turtles, still sell records today and are usually acknowledged as heavy influences on later rock & rollers. The faces betray a mixture of innocence and worldliness at a time when the music mattered and that comes through even if the medium of delivery is out of date.
If you're into the founding fathers of R&R, this is priceless! I would have liked more performances cram packed (you only get 30 minutes) but for 9 bucks it's not a bad deal. I hope eventually this gets repackaged in DVD with behind the scenes looks and even cleaner sound + vision.

Although it is old, black and white, and some of the tunes are sang to a backing track, it is worth it to own. Early live versions of 'You Really Got Me', 'All Day & All The Night' and 'See My Friends' tell us how influential the Kinks were to Rock n Roll. This band was just as cool and just as dangerous as the Rolling Stones, The Who, and even The Beatles. They are one of the most (if not the most) under-rated bands in the short history of Rock n Roll. Long live Ray & Dave Davies!!!

Leave it to Rhino to unearth these rare performances of the Kinks on Shindig. The visual quality varies from acceptable to good, but the sound is consistently outstanding, given the source material. Here we get the see the Kinks in their heyday, with many young girls in the audience screaming and clapping along. The songs breeze by in quick succession, with 10 tunes clocking in at a mere 30 minutes. However, given the rarity of sixties footage of the Kinks, this video is well worth owning.

The Kinks are classics! It brings me back 30some years! Their music is as good today as it was then! Watching my 14 year old daughter fall in love with Dave Davies, as I had, was a real thrill!

This video is a classic! Enjoy Tell Her No, We Gotta Get Outta This Place, Can't you Hear My Heart Beat, & Heart Full Of Soul. We watch and show this video to our friends time & again. Includes Herman's Hermits, The Yardbirds, & a not to be missed dancing Freddy & The Dreamers. Get a real feel for the 60s British Invasion by seeing and listening to this video.

the video just shows the performances of each band. it does not show the whole show of shindig that is why it is too short. you will not enjoy this video. it is like a compilation of cut out film clips. it is not worth the tag price for this. i would recommend you buying the "hullabaloo" dvd series of the british invasion which is better.
