I just received the Kettle of Fish Video Collection Thursday night and had a chance to go through it once so far. Outside of the video on the US edition of Sunsets, I haven't seen any of the videos (in North America? Hah!). Of course I have the double CD of the audio with Fortunes of War & Just Good Friends videos but I haven't checked those out since my (recently purchased) PC (as yet) has no sound card (until next week?).
Obviously, Fish hasn't ever had the backing of any big label (or a label that cares) unlike (for example) Peter Gabriel who can spend hundreds of thousands on a video with the help of Geffen records. So he has to obviously keep the video in a budget. There are a couple (at least) of videos that looked as if they did have some bucks behind it.
It's a bummer that videos have to be chopped up (or massacred) as Fortunes of War, Brother 52, Credo and a few others were really chopped.
Interesting. Hold Your Head Up (and Shortcut to Somewhere) is on the video collection but not on the CD.
I don't expect to see this collection in North America (except for the import places). So if you don't mind spending about 25 dollars (CDN) on a 46 minute video collection, grab it.

Got to watch this the other night and thoroughly enjoyed it. Just wish I had a decent video to do it justice.
The only Fish vids I'd seen previously were those included on the KoF CD rom (both there and from other sources). The other videos are really well produced and great fun to watch.
I'll take another look before I comment further but I think that JGF is still my favourite. It looks as though it was great fun to make. Even if Fish and Sam were nearly killed by the filming helicopter in the process :-)
