As I mentioned the major video hits are here including the wonderful signature song "Like the Weather" and the Maniacs' "Unplugged" hit version of "Because the Night," truly Natalie's great swan song as she departed the group shortly after.
About the only thing I am disappointed with is that I know there is a video for "Peace Train" that I used to like to watch on the old TBS video show "Night Tracks." As I vaguely recalled it featured Natalie and the group floating on some raft in the middle of a river. Too bad this will be a lost gem forever it seems.
For that reason I can only give this collection 4 stars.
It's really more like a video biography but gets more and more enjoyable as you get further into the video and the quality improves. Alot of the early stuff is in like super 8 (younger people ask your Mom or Dad about super 8 -maybe even Grandma or Grandpa).
The set is well laid out and put together. My only complaint, honestly, is that there is not more of their later stuff. Not that I do not appreciate the earlier stuff.
I know Natalie Merchant and the band parted ways and that in the 2 years before that happened, the band got slicker, the sound changed. I am guessing that she did not want to share that with the world as much as she wanted to share the early stuff.
So, all in all, I would have liked it to have been more balanced with early stuff and new stuff. But I still completely enjoyed watching it and am thrilled to own it again.
the video transfer was done exceptionally well and the material has never looked better the additions make it a must own, so what the waiting for?
the other reviewers have said pretty much all there is to say: I will add, you should own this if you're a fan of Natalie or the band. It's just that simple. it'll make one a little bit sad since the band is no longer around to make great music, and we are all a bit older too.
I really enjoyed this DVD as it gave a nice glimpse into the Maniacs throughout the majority of their career. The song list is more or less a greatest hits type deal, but there are some songs on here for the more serious fan. The videos and concert footage were really good, however, there could have been more supplemental interviews or commentary from band members to really tie the chronology together. Also, at just over an hour, there was obviously a lot of great material that was omitted. At the end of the DVD I was very satisfied with what I purchased. I'll definitely watch it again several more times in the future, and I certainly recommend it to any 10,000 Maniacs fan considering picking it up.
