Tales from Gypsy Road [Import]
2009 DVD release of this classic video collection from the '80s Poodle rockers. Tales from Gypsy Road was originally released on video in 1990 and contains the bands greatest hits and live sets from the Shoreline Amphitheatre, San Francisco. The original band members make this production into an interesting documentary, visiting, and showing the viewer around many of the clubs the band played in their early days - with anecdotes and memories from all members. They also describe the locations, trials and traumas of early video shoots and tours. Cinderella was founded in Philadelphia, USA, in 1983 by singer/songwriter Tom Keifer and bassist Eric Brittingham, who quickly added lead guitarist Jeff LaBar. Insisting on playing original material, they performed in clubs and bars in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and in 1985 Jon Bon Jovi caught one of their shows. He was sufficiently impressed to alert his record company, Mercury, which signed the band. Their debut album, Night Songs, was released in June 1986 and was a US top-three hit, certified double platinum.
