The White Stripes

Rhinoceros DVD

Review by Gary Hill

 I have to say that this series of DVD biographies is a bit of a mixed bag. On the one hand it’s nice that they put these things out to give people a glimpse into the history of these various bands. The thing is, since they are unauthorized they don’t have actual music from the artist. They also present more of an outsider’s view. In some instances, though, there’s another level of problem with the video. This is one of those cases. This DVD is actually one that was released in 2003 called “Candy Colored Blues.” They seem to have simply put a new cover and name on it and re-released it. It would be nice if they’d warn people of it in advance (particularly those who own the original version). This is definitely not the best in the series, but it’s probably not the worst either. For those like me who have heard of this outfit, but never delved deeply into their story, it’s definitely worth viewing.
