TURN-ONS AND TURN-OFFS IN CURRENT HOME ENTERTAINMENT RELEASES : Excellent Good Fair Poor : VIDEOCASSETTES

September 15, 1987|CHRIS WILLMAN | Compiled by Terry Atkinson

"Lone Justice Live." Geffen. $19.95. L.A. native Maria McKee is in full hyperactive form in this 35-minute concert film, which captures the new lineup of Lone Justice on stage at New York's Ritz. The video provides newcomers ample chance to sample McKee's uninhibited charms, but longtime fans of the band stand to be disappointed. Among the seven songs, obvious concert favorites have been left out (exception: the country-flavored ballad "Don't Toss Us Away") while weak commercial singles remain represented. And the new players that McKee assembled last year in a volley of personnel changes show zero interaction or chemistry--this Lone Justice looks for all intents and purposes like Maria McKee and a backup band. Then again, who has time to interact when you're whipping yourself into the kind of frenzy that McKee does here? Information: (818) 846-9090.
