For the first time on DVD - collection of video clips and concert performances not only a group of 10 SS, but the duo Godley & Creme, which was founded by two members of 10 CC since the collapse of the collective. Videotape composed of the best music videos and concert performances of legendary group the 70's, as well as the duo Godley & Creme, emerged after the collapse of the collective. "Good Morning Judge", "I'm Mandy Fly Me", "The Wall Street Shuffle - Live", "Dreadlock Holiday", "Feel the Love" - you are given the opportunity to not only hear but also see their favorite songs. DVD also contains a video for the song "Cry", which is recognized classics of the genre and is the most successful hit of Godley & Creme.
10cc's fourth album, HOW DARE YOU, is the last to feature the original lineup of Eric Stewart, Graham Gouldman, Lol Creme and Kevin Godley. Godley and Creme left shortly after the recording of this album to explore the commercial and artistic possibilities of an instrument they invented, the Gizmo. The Gizmo's eerie drone is all over this record, slotting in beautifully with the multilayered vocal arrangements which were the band's other sonic trademark…
This is a great place to dip your toe in and see if Godley & Creme's music appeals to you. This, along with the 10cc Best of Compilation will provide you with the best glimpse into Godley & Creme's world. This compilation of their solo, post-10cc music, is a nice starting point for those unfamiliar with their work. It even includes the 1985 hit "Cry" which some people may recall from the MTV video. If original, tongue in cheek music is your cup of tea, this is a must. It's still a must for any rock collector.
Greatest is a Duran Duran fan's biggest wish come true (next to a live concert, of course)–all their groundbreaking videos together in one place. More than radio, MTV made mega-stars out of the photogenic group, and few took better advantage of the medium, particularly in the 1980s. Just as their music combined the sophisticated pop of Roxy Music with the electro-funk of Chic, each video is as immaculately styled and conceived as the band itself. Like 1998's Greatest CD collection, this two-DVD set features all their big hits, including uncensored versions of "Girls on Film" and "Come Undone." Directors include Godley and Creme, Julien Temple, and Vogue photographer Ellen Von Unwerth and years covered range from 1981's self-titled debut to 1997's Medazzaland. All told: more models, more hair spray, and more mascara than a Paris fashion show–but it's got a better beat (and you can dance to it).
Duran Duran’s debut eponymous album has just been given an overhaul nearly 30 years (yikes!) after it first hit the shelves (vinyl and cassette!!). This was the album that catapulted the boys from New Romantic wannabees in Birmingham clubs to pop stars. The album really stands the testament of time, especially the three singles – 'Planet Earth’, 'Girls on Film’ and 'Careless Memories’. As well as these singles the album has some more great quality tracks including 'Night Boat’ and 'Anyone Out there’ – both could have been singles.
The package is much more than just a re-mastering of the album. CD1 also includes all the b-sides, whilst CD2 has various unreleased and rare tracks including early demo’s which are a great alternate versions – Girls on Film and Planet earth both sounding particularly raw but at the same time retaining much of the electronica accompaniment.
Then to top it all comes the DVD, including the infamous banned 'soft porn’ video for Girls on Film, produced by Godley and Creme. You alos get the 'clean’ version, some TOTP appearances and even a bit of Swap Shop as well.
Deceptive Bends is an album released in 1977 by rock band 10cc.
The departure of Kevin Godley and Lol Creme in 1976 to form Godley & Creme almost ended 10cc. However Eric Stewart and Graham Gouldman kept the group alive as a duo (with the assistance of percussionist Paul Burgess). The cover design was provided by Hipgnosis.
