From the box:
After 9 years and 4 albums worth of songs, which have been filmed and videoed, we felt it was about time to compile all these clips into one handy video collection. Further research into the archives unearthed 17 videos of 15 different songs spanning all of our albums.
We have endeavoured to bring you the complete range of Def Leppard video experiences, starting with an obscure recording of ‘Hello America’ from our first album through to the TV performances of 1980, 1983 and 1984 which few of you have ever seen. Then there are the 6 videos we did for ‘Hysteria’ and the videos we made with different band members, ending with 2 songs filmed in concert in ‘the round’ at Denver, Colorado in 1988.
So we strung every bit of film together in date order, added a bit of explanation as to the ‘whys’ and ‘wherefores,’ and called it ‘HISTORIA’.
