Pretenders: Live In London 2010 Deluxe CD/DVD Edition 2010 16:9 DTS 5.1 PBS Special


Pretenders-Live in London captures the band's energy at its purest form. The video was shot without the use of cranes, dollies or steadi-cams to create movement. Instead it is about the band, giving it all and not holding back any as it does any night when they hit the stage. This is a Rock concert and the music is in your face. The filmmakers' objective was to stay out the way and capture it within the frame.

The band played brilliantly that night and what can be heard and seen on this release is an honest reproduction of that moment in time. There are no overdubs made to the music and no fake crowd noises added. The editing is made to savor moments and the music was mixed and mastered for it to breathe. 24 tracks

Deluxe two disc (CD/DVD) edition includes bonus DVD. With millions of albums sold and their place in the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame solidified, The Pretenders are a special band with a special place in history. Pretenders-Live in London captures one of their many electrifying performances from their 2009 world tour. The CD captures 20 of The Pretenders biggest hits, including 'Kid', 'Back On The Chain Gang', 'Middle Of The Road', 'Brass In Pocket' and many more. The DVD features 24 tracks.

Product Reviews

Proving that the Pretenders' unexpected 2008 revival wasn t limited to the studio and the excellent Break Up the Concrete, the 2010 CD/DVD set Live in London finds Chrissie Hynde s band lean and vital, running through classics and new tunes with equal vigor. While this is founded on the former -- Back on the Chain Gang, Brass in Pocket, Middle of the Road, and I ll Stand by You all make appearances -- the newer songs gain strength in this setting, and the Pretenders slip in some nice surprises, chief among them an airing of Cuban Slide toward the end of the set. What s best about this set is that it s not a grand reunion, or an attempt to recapture past glories: it s a testament to the power and pleasure of a working band. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi
