Pop Twist Entertainment, with sales and distribution support provided by MVD Entertainment Group, has selected Friday, Oct. 21 for the DVD debut of Don McLean: Starry Starry Night.
Filmed live in 1999 at the Paramount Theatre in Austin Texas, iconic recording artist Don McLean delivers all of his major hits, including a stirring rendition of “Vincent” (1971), his “portrait” of the life of Vincent van Gogh, whose famous 1888 “Starry Night” painting was the inspiration for both the song and this subsequent concert.
From Mclean’s first album, “Tapestry” (1970), comes “And I Love You So,” which has been covered by numerous artists over the years — Perry Como, Elvis, Helen Reddy, etc. — and “Castles in the Air;” From his 1981 album, “Believers” is “Jerusalem” ( … “Jerusalem, Jerusalem all roads lead to you”) and no Don Mclean concert would be complete without his signature song, “American Pie.”
He also delivers covers of Roy Orbison’s “Crying” and Frank Sinatra’s “It was a Very Good Year” and from his 1995 album, “The River of Love,” comes “You’re My Little Darlin’” and “Angry Words.”
Don McLean: Starry Starry Night on DVD is a real treat for fans of Don Mclean, especially with the video “upgrade” and new audio remastering provided by Pop Twist Entertainment.
