Overview

In 1966, The Spencer Davis Group were solidly established as one of the top groups on the British Beat scene when they headed to Germany for an appearance on the teen-oriented television series Beat -- Beat -- Beat. The group's four-song set -- performed live before an audience of dancing teenagers -- is presented on this DVD release from ABC Entertainment. Beat Beat Beat: The Spencer Davis Group has been transferred to disc in its original full-frame aspect ratio of 1.33:1, and the image quality is excellent, especially for a television appearance more than four decades old; the picture is sharp and clear and well-detailed enough that you can study Steve Winwood's acne if you're so inclined. The audio is mastered in Dolby Digital Stereo, retaining the original monophonic sound mix; the band's performance is lively enough to push the audio in the red zone at times, but the overall quality is good and the balance is pleasingly natural. The songs are performed in English, with no subtitles or multiple language options included. No bonus material is included on this DVD, and since Beat Beat Beat: The Spencer Davis Group includes less than eleven minutes of music, it doesn't seem like very good value for money, even at a reduced list price, but the quality is impressive, and fans of beat-era rock will certainly enjoy seeing Davis and company in action.
