The Smithereens live DVD – 5 full-length video clips online now

As mentioned in a previous update, The Smithereens (a.k.a. world's greatest band/one of 'em anyway) will release a DVD companion to their 2008 live release on January 15th.

Smithereens frontman Pat Dinizio recently put up a post with 6 full length videos from Live in Concert. You can click through on each video link to watch a higher quality video, which makes a huge difference and will give you greater appreciation for the "film" effect that they used on the footage.

I'm really looking forward to this release - hoping that the between song chatter will be included (and I imagine chances are good that it will be!)

The Smithereens - Behind The Wall of Sleep

The Smithereens - Drown in My Own Tears

The Smithereens - Top of The Pops

The Smithereens - Since You Went Away

The Smithereens - Any Other Way

The Smithereens - A Girl Like You

    Just imagine how much more successful they would have been if they had been cute at all.

    Seems like Mike Mesaros was always a favorite of the ladies…but yeah, I know what you’re saying!

    And dammit, I miss Mike. Coolest bass player ever.

    Must be a Mike thing…Mike Mesaros, Michael Anthony….

    Always dug watching Jim Babjak play too.

    Does anybody know if this DVD from the Court Tavern has been released or if it is coming out at all ? The CD is truly a great live recording and I love how it rocks with a purpose. I just put it on after a poker game recently and my whole gang there playing loved it.

    Pat – I imagine it will be out at some point this year. It looks like their current record company Koch Records, is going through some re-structuring.

    I’ll see if I can get some new details..

    I’ve been on a real Smithereens kick since that live CD came out..
