Greatest Video Hits (DVD)
Released: 2003, Universal Music
It was inevitable that MTV darlings Motley Crue would eventually release all their videos in some sort of collection. The unimaginatively titled GREATEST VIDEO HITS fits the bill being issued in 2003.
This 21 video set comes with a 12 page full-colour booklet which looks nice. For some reasons the videos are out of order but you can create a personal playlist and put them back in proper sequence. The menus are good and easy to navigate
GREATEST VIDEO HITS is marginally better than many of these generic packages that litter the video landscape as it has some decent bonus features. There is a fairly extensive interview with Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee inter-spliced with archival footage. There is a discography and there are also six bonus videos that are alternate versions or uncensored versions. The ‘X-rated’ version of ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’ wasn’t that much different just a bunch of topless strippers near the end and the uncensored versions of ‘Misunderstood’, ‘Primal Scream’ and ‘Hell On High Heels’ were not dramatically different either. There re a couple of hidden videos as well you need to find the 'Easter Eggs'.
I actually find more value in the later-era videos which were not aired nearly as much in the early 90’s when MTV and Much Music shifted focus. As much as I love the Crue I could probably live without seeing ‘Dr. Feelgood ‘ for the 1000th time. Some of the videos are funny, (Smoking In The Boys Room) some are sexy, some are serious and some are just weird, ‘Afraid’ as they band made it’s play to capture a grunge audience before realizing their mistake.
GREATEST VIDEO HITS is pretty decent collection, good value, lots of material so it worth getting.
