    Send This One Back to The Encoder

    As other reviewers on the Web have noted, this disc offers up the bulk of the Bangles' music video output, and true fans of the group will likely gobble up whatever crumbs that they're given. But the word crumb isn't used indiscriminately here, for the mastering job done on this collection truly is, in a word, crummy. Some other reviewers have correctly pointed out that the DVD itself is identical in content to the release of the same title on VHS back in the early '90s. Where those individuals were slightly mistaken is in characterizing the DVD as a VHS-to-DVD transfer, when obviously, a large outfit like Sony Music Video, inheritors of the rich CBS Records catalog, would never use a VHS tape as a master -- even though, in the case of this disc, it might look like it. No, clearly, better source materials were used, but whatever party or parties were responsible for the encoding process should be ashamed. It's also hard to understand why this happened, since Sony has remastered other legacy titles from the old CBS canon, including music video collections from Sade, Billy Joel and Cyndi Lauper, that look just fine, even if their sound is more than a bit overmodulated. But it's sight, not sound, that's at the heart of the problem with this Bangles compilation. As the owner of both the original VHS release and now this newer DVD iteration, I can attest unequivocally to the overall superiority of the former over the latter. The image quality of the DVD version is perhaps a mite sharper, but that improvement is more than offset by the significant amount of graininess visible throughout all of the videos contained on the disc version. And with the VHS and DVD having equally fine audio, on balance, the VHS version comes out on top. The bad news here is that it's out of print. The good news is that it's still widely available from a number of vendors, including some online. If you really love Susanna and company and want to own an audiovisual souvenir of this great girl group of the '80s, do yourself a favor and pick up the videocassette while it's still available. It's either that, or wait and hope that Sony realizes the error of its ways and remasters the DVD.

    Must Own For Bangles Fans!

    Terrific collection of the Bangles Classic Videos from the 80's. The only negative is that this great title is not available on DVD yet.
