Radiohead: Best Of DVD - June 3rd, 2008

from pitchforkmedia:

Radiohead Best Of DVD Details Emerge

In an effort to combat the dearth in Radiohead-related wares in an otherwise underserved marketplace, here comes Radiohead: The Best Of DVD, a 21-track collection of some of the finest audiovisual excursions from Radiohead's storied career in the stuff. Sporting work from such noted video directors as Michel Gondry, Sophie Muller, Jonathan Glazer, and many others, the set also features a live take on Hail to the Thief opener "2+2=5" from 2003's Eurockéennes de Belfort Festival. And, heck, it has Jamie Thraves' clip for "Just", which, alone, is worth the price of admission.

Conveniently enough, the DVD emerges from Parlophone/EMI June 2 in the UK, the very day that the band's former label issues that audio Best Of they're not too keen on. The Best Of DVD hits U.S. shores June 3 via Capitol/EMI. And there's always this thing to tide you over until all that happens. Me, I could watch ol' drum-face for days.

Best Of:

01 Creep
02 Anyone Can Play Guitar
03 Pop Is Dead
04 Stop Whispering
05 My Iron Lung
06 High and Dry (UK version)
07 High and Dry (US version)
08 Fake Plastic Trees
09 Just
10 Street Spirit (Fade Out)
11 Paranoid Android
12 Karma Police
13 No Surprises
14 Pyramid Song
15 Knives Out
16 I Might Be Wrong
17 Push Pulk / Spinning Plates
18 There There
19 Go to Sleep
20 Sit Down Stand Up
21 2+2=5 (Live at Belfort Festival)

----------------

As much as I want to respect the band's feelings in their disagreements with Parlophone/EMI, this looks like a must have purchase. I love the video for Knives Out and can't wait to finally have a copy.

Crap, got all giddy with excitement and didn't notice that we already have a thread dealing with the Best Of CD that nobody really needs. Feel free to merge these if you think it's appropriate.

This is great news! I've been hoping to have all of their videos on disc for quite a while now, and this will be a quick purchase for me.

That's why it took so long for the DVD to come out - it took ages to get the sound engineers off the floor...
