Ooo-er, this here's an Official (official, mind you!) Audio/Video Fan-Pack, containing the home video of The Great Adventure, Steve's first music video, behind the scenes footage, exclusive interview, cassette, numbered Certificate of Authenticity, rare photographs, career highlights, and a personal note from Steven. I'm also assured that I own one of only 50,000 made! Well, what can I say? I know that it feels like being on the end of typical American hype that usually includes the words "especially for you". Still, brushing that window-dressing aside... The cassette was accurately reviewed in CR 12. However, you would need to be a total SCC completist freak to find any meat in the 30-min video. He chatters inanely about the songs, gets a haircut, receives his dastardly Dove award, plays cowboys, kisses his wife, and acts the silly billy to fill up the time. Oh, and you can view some sincere, humble prayers being offered up. I find Chapman's music listenable though vastly overrated, but this video left me with no clue about what the man's really like underneath the hype.
