Bowie, David: Rare and Unseen (DVD)

For the loyal David Bowie fan, Rare and Unseen will be a mandatory DVD to seek out, but for casual onlookers, don't expect an all-inclusive look at the legendary chameleon of rock. This DVD is a 55 minute pseudo-ducumentary that brings together some rare interview footage of Bowie from throughout his career, with a few snippets of live footage thrown in for good measure. Easily the most interesting is the lengthy 'via satellite' chat with Russell Harty of the British hit The Russell Harty Show, where the two talk at length about Bowie's personal life, as well as the then just completed film 'The Man Who Fell to Earth'. It's actually quite humerous to watch Harty asking Bowie all sorts of eyebrow raising questions, and a somewhat annoyed and evasive singer trying to dodge them or giving bizarre answers. This was obviously during Bowie's heavy drug days, so who knows what sort of chemicals he was on at the time. Also included is an interview done during the 1997 recording of his album Earthling, where David talks about how strange his life was back in the 70's. There's also some moments spent with Peter Frampton as well, who played with Bowie during that time period.

Other than some brief live and backstage clips, there's not much else here, making Rare and Unseen seem all too brief for anyone other than die-hard Bowie fanatics.
