Later with Jools Holland Movie Review

Hop to

After running for 12 years and being widely regarded as the flagship of the BBC's music shows, “Later ... With Jools Holland” has always prided itself on bringing the best blend of musicians to a TV audience. Over the years it has managed to attract just about every major band to perform “live” in the studio. In this set we have the latest compilation culled from the archives, this time featuring British bands only, with tracks recorded from 1993 to 2003.

The mix on offer here does, pretty much, read like a who's who of Britpop though, with tracks ranging from the emotionally powerful “The Drugs Don't Work” by the Verve through to an energetic performance of “I Believe In A Thing Called Love” by the Darkness. This being a compilation of “live” recordings some of the performances do surprise you, with an Oasis version of “I Am The Walrus” being surprisingly good and a bizarre performance of “Disco 2000” by Pulp being rather disappointing.

Speaking of disappointment, it came as a large one to notice the almost complete absence of the man himself on this set. Apart from a (very) few appearances in the two mini-interviews (Jools appears in clips only, not as the interviewer) his only appearance is in the DVD menus and opening credits. Given the racks of footage with Jools and guests that must exist (even limiting the scope to Britpop bands), it would have been nice to have had at least a few appearances included. Ahh well.One point worthy of note is an interesting new feature available on this disc. As well as the regular “play all” and the option to jump straight to a favourite track, the facility to build a limited play list has been added. This interesting new twist allows up to five tracks to be selected from the track list and then played back as the viewer desires, neat.
