Creem Presents NRBQ Ė One In A Million (Concert)


Picture: C+†††† Sound: B-†††† Extras: D†††† Concert: C+



In what is a throwback at least half way, the band NRBQ feels more like a 1970s Pop/Rock band than one from the late 1980s, but 1989 is when this concert was videotaped.Fans and some critics swear by them, but I was not as impressed.Maybe One In A Million is not the best example of their work, but with their slight Country leaning and Cheap Trick-like theatrics, they are at least in it for the fun.The songs are:


1)     I Got A Rocket In My Pocket

2)     Girl Scout Cookies

3)     Itís A Wild Weekend

4)     Little Floater

5)     Youíre So Beautiful

6)     12 Bar Blues

7)     Crazy Like a Fox

8)     Here Comes Terry

9)     Shake, Rattle & Roll


Well, they were consistent, if not catchy and some of the on camera antics felt like the earliest of Music Videos in the best way.This may appeal to some, but it is limited.This is also true of the analog NTSC 1.33 X 1 full screen image on the DVD, with some lack of definition and even color bleeding.The sound is here in Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono and 5.1 remix with very little subwoofer action, showing the age and circumstances of the recording.The only extras are a slide show set to one of their songs and letterboxed 1.78 X 1 2001 Music Video for Dummy, but that will make fans pleased if no one else.NRQB - One In A Million is for those who might want to risk seeing something a bit retro, or something like that.
