CINDERELLA “Rocked, Wired & Bluesed: The Greatest Video Hits” /DVD/



The second full-length DVD by the legendary American Hard Rock/Bluese Metal band.
This DVD complement to the Cinderella best-of album "Rocked, Wired & Bluesed: The Greatest Hits" presents ten music videos by the band including all eight of its Billboard Hot 100 chart singles, the non-chart single "Shake Me" and the album track "The More Things Change".
The first three videos, "Shake Me", "Nobody's Fool" and "Somebody Save Me", all from Cinderella's debut album, "Night Songs", and all directed by Mark Rezyka, share a concept involving the Cinderella fairy tale, at least to the extent of featuring two "step-sisters" who follow the band around to its live performances, video shoots, and studio work. Things change drastically with director Nick Morris' videos for "Gypsy Road", "Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone)" and "The Last Mile", all from the second album, "Long Cold Winter".
All the videos have been digitally remastered in 5.1 Dolby Surround Sound.
Some videos have other actors or musicians: Jon Bon Jovi & Richie Sambora appear in the "Somebody Save Me", and Pamela Anderson & Little Richard appear in the "Shelter Me" video.
Morris takes the band to Cancun, Mexico, to perform before the Mayan ruins for "Gypsy Road" and up to a mountainous location in Northern California for "Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone)", while "The Last Mile" finds the musicians on-stage and on the road. Marc Reshovsky and Chris Painter's "Coming Home", also from "Long Cold Winter", is a story video featuring actors intercut with a band performance. A straight live shoot accompanies "The More Things Change", from "Heartbreak Station", and the other two videos from the third album, "Shelter Me" and "Heartbreak Station", both directed by Jeff Stein, are the most ambitious. The former is set at a telethon peopled by such celebrities as Little Richard and Dweezil Zappa, while the latter finds the band playing at an old train station and on an old train.
All the videos have been digitally remastered in 5.1 Dolby Surround Sound.
Some videos have other actors or musicians: Jon Bon Jovi & Richie Sambora appear in the "Somebody Save Me", and Pamela Anderson & Little Richard appear in the "Shelter Me" video.
The DVD also contains a commentary track on which bandmembers Tom Keifer and Eric Brittingham struggle to find things to say about the videos. They laugh at some of the settings ("Where are we, on Mars?"), make fun of their own hairdos ("What was I thinking with those bangs?"), and generally marvel at reliving the experience of making the videos ("It's weird watchin' this stuff"). Brittingham in particular seems to focus on the difficulties of shooting, from suffering Montezuma's Revenge to cold temperatures on some of the locations.
The DVD also includes an edited version of the home video "Tales From the Gypsy Road", which includes interviews, performance footage, and trips back to small clubs the band used to play, and a short "making of" documentary about the "Heartbreak Station" video.
