OK, Sing Blue Silver isn't exactly loaded with special features - there aren't any - but this documentary of their 1984 North American tour is a scream, and a must-have for any girl who freaked out over the fab five as a tender sweet young thing. It follows the band as hot 20-somethings on tour, to interviews and press conferences in which they talk about playing with their instruments (tee-hee!) and walks down the streets of NYC and goofing around. You get to see John looking all cute and dishevelled first thing in the morning. Girls wait outside concerts and burst into tears. I don't know where the freakin' Reflex is, but you get Is There Something I Should Know?, Planet Earth, Rio, The Wild Boys, Union Of The Snake, Girls On Film, Save A Prayer and more. And it comes with black-and-white postcards of individual band members! God, I'd have killed to have this when I was 12.
Arena (An Absurd Notion) comes with a sticker sheet. It features the entire 1984 new wave silly sci-fi film Arena, directed by Highlander director Russell Mulcahy, with Milo O'Shea, snippets from Barbarella and lots of live footage mostly from a performance in Oakland. A little tired, especially if you just watched Sing Blue Silver, but still fun. Also features The Making Of Arena, the TV ad and trailer, and an interview with Simon LeBon.
