Go Behind-the-Scenes with Six Classic Albums on October 3
New York, NY (September 22, 2006) —Eagle Rock Entertainment—through its wholly owned Eagle Vision subsidiary—is releasing six DVDs from its critically-acclaimed “Classic Albums” series (expect a fall VH1-Classics televised series) on October 3.
The six masterworks are Steely Dan’s Aja, The Who’s Who’s Next, U2’s The Joshua Tree, Phil Collins’ Face Value, Bob Marley & The Wailers’ Catch A Fire and Meat Loaf’s Bat Out Of Hell.
What could be more classic than The Who’s Who’s Next? Every cut on this 1971 #1 chart-topper is classic, and remaining on the charts for five straight months. Surviving Who members Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey and John Entwistle reminisce about the album’s relation to its era, and the circumstances that led to its recording. Also, those who were there and close to the group at the time weigh in with fascinating personal anecdotes, including stories about larger-than-life drummer Keith Moon. There’s hardly-ever-seen concert footage of the early days, and the symmetry behind such songs as “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” “Baba O’Riley” and “Behind Blue Eyes” is dissected and explored.
