The Pasadena Roof Orchestra Ė Dance The Night Away


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



Nothing like a revival band surviving for a few decades because they have recaptured something vital from musicís past.The Pasadena Roof Orchestra Ė Dance The Night Away is a 40 minutes long concert from back in 1982 that even simulates the idea of a club atmosphere, as if the band was opening up an old club in the 1920s.The PRO have the energy, enthusiasm and talent, but best of all, they do not deviate from the style like someone would today in a stretch of pseudo-artistic marking.The tracks here are:


1)     Talking Pictures

2)     Little Orphan Annie

3)     Iíve Found A New Baby

4)     Singing In The Rain

5)     Me & Jane In A Plane

6)     Am Sontage Will Mein Susser Mit Mir Segein Gehn

7)     Charleston

8)     Creole Love Call

9)     Running Wild

10) Yes Sir, Thatís My Baby



The 1.33 X 1 videotaped image looks like it was shot in the analog PAL format, and though it is a bit soft; it is also stylized to be so.It will remind some of old Music Videos from Englandís New Romantic movement.The Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo has no surrounds, but is fine for its age.Extras include biography and recent discography information about a band still alive and well.There is also a link to the Quantum Leap Video (not to be confused with the TV series) website and four long promo sections for their other DVD products.
