Last-second gift idea: Duran Duran on DVD
Why? Because nobody who loves the '80s can live without another Duran Duran disc. (Plus, it will help erase the memory of Red Carpet Massacre, though I'm beginning to finally appreciate a couple tracks from that album.)
Classic Albums: Rio tells the story behind the making the 1982 album, including the details of the writing and recording of the big hits and the genesis of its landmark music videos. Plenty of interviews are offered up, including those with Simon Le Bon, Nick Rhodes, John Taylor and Roger Taylor as well as director Russell Mulcahy, former manager Paul Berrow and Bob Geldof.
Live performances and music videos round out the DVD, which was released in November. Amazon.com is selling it for $13.99 and delivery is possible by Christmas day.
