Rare Early Videos – Cold War 1994 Live

Here’s a rare video added to YouTube by Cantopopulist  today, 18 June 2008. {Converted to WordPress on 10.12.08.] It’s “Cold War” (冷戰) from Faye Wong’s (王菲) 1994 Hong Kong concert. As the uploader says, it’s only available on the laser disc (side B, track 8). It’s neither on the DVD nor the VCD.

Watching this video, you can’t help but wonder why Cinepoly doesn’t return to the mixing studio to pull together all the different clips from this concert to create a whole DVD that’s purely for watching — a video minus the karaoke functions. This was a great concert with some of Faye’s best early hits and Faye chatting quite a bit with the audience. It’s not as polished as the 1998-99 and 2003 concerts, but you can clearly see that this was the starting point for the one-off style that made Faye’s live performances legend. This is Faye doing it her way.
