DVD impression




Additional comments DVD-Video featuring two documentaries. The first one is called "Curves, contours and bodyhorns" and was originally broadcasted in 1993. It's a documentary celebrating 40 years of the Fender Stratocaster. It features various Strat players over the years, including Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Hank B. Marvin, David Gilmour, Keith Richards and many, many more. Mark Knopfler is also featured of course, but only very briefly. Still, it's a very interesting documentary. This was recorded from ITV in the UK onto mono VHS tape. Picture quality is OK, but sound suffers from an annoying buzz. The second documentary "Not fade away", is about Buddy Holly and specifically the making of a tribute album. It's narrated by the late, Waylon Jennings. Mark Knopfler is shown working in the studio with Waylon, recording the song Learning the game and speaking about the project. This was recorded from CMT Europe onto HiFi stereo VHS, most likely late 1996 or 1997. Picture quality is OK, the sound is good.
The tribute CD, released in January 1996
