DOLLY PARTON, LIVE AND WELL
Dolly’s “Halos & Horns” tour, her first in 10 years, is revisited on this concert DVD filmed at the Dollywood Theater in December 2002. Parton smoothly sweeps from recent bluegrass tunes like “Little Sparrow” and “The Grass Is Blue” to her classics “Jolene” and “I Will Always Love You,” which she triumphantly reclaims from Whitney Houston.
VARIOUS ARTISTS, SOUL TO SOUL
Originally released theatrically in 1971, this film documents the 14-hour concert extravaganza in Ghana that celebrated that country’s freedom from British rule. The all-star lineup includes Wilson Pickett; the original Santana band; and Ike and Tina Turner, who burn up the stage with “River Deep, Mountain High.”
INXS, I’M ONLY LOOKING: THE BEST OF
This comprehensive two-disc retrospective is exactly what INXS fans need. Disc 1 includes such choice clips as “New Sensation,” “Devil Inside” and the MTV Award-winning “Need You Tonight.” A second disc includes live performances, videos for remixes and other rare footage of the Australian band.
KYLIE MINOGUE, BODY LANGUAGE LIVE
This title captures the November 2003 concert at London’s Hammersmith Apollo, where Minogue launched her latest album, Body Language. And the visuals–not Minogue’s electronically enhanced vocals–do the talking here. Extras include a documentary; an interview with Kylie; and music videos for “Slow,” “Red Blooded Woman” and “Chocolate.”
CHER, THE VERY BEST OF CHER: THE VIDEO HITS COLLECTION
If only for the outrageous outfits–gotta still love that butt-baring getup from “If I Could Turn Back Time”–this set shows why Cher is a diva worthy of one-name status. The 15 clips range from 1973’s “Half Breed” to 2002’s “Song for the Lonely.”
