London-based eco-system partner Wicksteed Works recently produced a series of offer pages for Eagle Rock Entertainment, the world’s largest producer and distributor of music programming for DVD, Blu-Ray, TV and Digital Media. Each page features digital download offers powered by Topspin, and is set up to geo-detect visitors’ location and serve one of three mirror pages. Here’s a summary of each project:
The Raconteurs - Live At Montreux 2008 Four years on, this live performance from the Raconteurs at the premier Swiss music festival is as rocking as ever. At the time the band were touring in support of their second album ‘Consolers Of The Lonely’, and their set is packed with hits including ‘Steady As She Goes’, ‘Many Shades Of Black’ and ‘Salute Your Solution’. This is the nearest one can get to a live show since band members have since taken different paths.
Kasabian - Live! - Live At The O2: Special Edition On 15 Dec 2011, Kasabian performed at London’s O2 Arena in support of their number 1 album “Velociraptor!”, as part of a sold out arena tour across the UK and Ireland. The setlist combines tracks from that album with classic album tracks from across their career to date. As Kasabian’s first standalone concert release, this is a must-have for fans old and new.
Pink Floyd - The Story Of Wish You Were Here “Wish You Were Here” is Pink Floyd’s follow-up to “Dark Side Of The Moon”, and upon release in September 1975 it went straight to number one in the UK and number 12 in the US, going on to sell 13 million copies worldwide. This film tells the in-depth story of the album’s origins and production, interviewing many of the key players as well as new interviews with surviving band members.
Duran Duran - A Diamond In The Mind Duran Duran have a reputation for great music, stunning visuals and iconic style, and all these were apparent at their MEN Arena, Manchester concert on 16 December 2011. Following the release of their “All You Need Is Now” album, this concert includes new songs from that release as well as their classic hits. The band will headline the Opening Ceremony for the London Olympics this month.
Muddy Waters & The Rolling Stones - Live At The Checkerboard Lounge Chicago 1981 In the middle of their 1981 American tour, prior to three dates at the Rosemont Horizon, the Rolling Stones paid a visit to Muddy Waters’ club the Checkerboard Lounge in Chicago. Having long been influenced by Chicago blues, it wasn’t long before Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Ian Stewart joined the legendary bluesman onstage. This unique event was captured on camera, restored with sound remixed and remastered by Bob Clearmountain.
