Greatest Video Hits (DVD)
July 2002
Released: 2001, Capital Records
Rating: 4.0/5
Reviewer: Celtic Bob

Longtime Poison fans will be quite pleased with the bands only DVD release to date. It features ALL of their videos including the rarely seen ones from their NATIVE TONGUE disc as well as a couple of never before seen ones. The DVD is essentially their home videos put together on one disc with a bit of extras thrown in.

What can I say about this release that needs to be said? For people that have liked them since ’86 (like myself) it’s great to finally see the videos all in one place. For the music fan that is not too familiar with them but would like to have a decent collection of their more popular stuff then this is the set to buy.

This collection is not loaded with extras but it does feature clips of band members goofing around, rehearsing and giving a bit of insight into the albums and songs. For the most part it is quite entertaining to watch and brings back loads of memories for us older folk.

Quality wise, the picture is great although seems a little grainy at times. The sound quality is my only problem with this purchase. It is in 5.1 and I prefer to listen to my music in basic stereo the way it was originally intended (except for some live concerts). I had to use a “fake” stereo on my amp in order to get a better sound. At least give the customer the choice of how they’d prefer to listen to it!
