Oh Dear Oh Dear Oh Dear.
Having just watched the 'Jewel in the Crown' DVD, I'm sorry to report that it's a piece of unadulterated garbage from beginning to end.
I doubt very much if left to my own devices I would have purchased such an obvious & shoddy cash-in on Moz's current popularity. However, my dear other-half, by way of a surprise, bought it for me this morning.
I love him dearly, bless his cotton socks, but i do believe his £12.99 would have been put to better use had he bought some magic beans, a (fake) rabbit's foot & a sprig of lucky heather.
As it's completely unauthorised, no original music can be included, which means that the only 'music' we hear is a short burst of unaccompanied guitar played 'in the style of' Johnny Marr (Yeah, Johnny Marr after having his arms severed in a freak lawn mower accident)between each tedious & uneventful chapter.
Probably for the same reason, there is very little actual footage of Moz, apart from a little bit from The J Ross Show.
The manufacturers of the DVD cleverly get round this by repeatedly using the same clever & innovative technique of slowly panning up a photograph while simultaneously zooming in or out.
For the benefit of any Americans reading this, I was being sarcastic &, possibly, ironic too, when I used the words 'clever' & 'innovative' just then.
The only snippet of information I'd not heard 20 times already, was when Tony (A man trapped in a pig's body) Wilson made the bizzare claim that Johnny Marr's wife Angie, in a Yoko Ono-esque bout of interferance, wanted Johnny to leave The Smiths cos she was fed-up of Morrissey. Or something.
Anyway, I'll shut up about it now cos I don't wanna spoil the end for anyone.
