Various Artists - All You Need Is Love Vol 15 Whatever Gets You Through The Night (Glitter Rock)

Over the past forty-plus years British film director Tony Palmer has established himself as one of the country's foremost directors of documentary and factual films. One of Tony Palmer's first successes was the film All My Loving, which was released in 1968. Some seven years later Tony had the idea, encouraged by John Lennon, to document the history of popular music. The result was the groundbreaking and award-winning series of films made for television under the title All You Need Is Love. The full series of films was released in 2008 to great critical and commercial acclaim.

In this episode we turn our attention to the seventies and the phenomena that became known as Glitter Rock.

This episode takes place almost entirely on stage; fans are always seen from the performer's point of view.  Thus, we begin to feel and experience first hand the pressures being put upon various individuals by the music industry.  We are backstage with David Bowie as he makes himself up for a performance.  We watch Alice Cooper ritualistically smashing up a doll, while the fans shriek for more and more.  We are with Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull as he prepares to face a screaming crowd.  We watch Eric Clapton before drugs, during drugs and after drugs.  We are on stage with Keith Emerson as he hurls his electric organ as the audience....

Told through interviews with many of the main players of the time such as Alice Cooper, Marc Bolan, David Bowie and Elton John, this DVD also features performance footage from Jethro Tull, Emerson, Lake and Palmer and Kiss, all of whom were massively involved during the period covered by the DVD.
