Country fans enjoy watching their favorite stars sing, so they’ll like watching them talk, too. That seems to be the premise of Country Music Video Magazine, a heavily produced compilation of talking heads, music videos, live performances, and puffy reviews of compact discs and videotapes that amount to little more than product plugs, released every 8 to 10 weeks in an ongoing series. The trouble is, these ”magazines” are wildly erratic, meandering from engaging interviews with such hit-makers as Kathy Mattea and Dwight Yoakam to mindless fashion shows of rhinestone suits and tedious ”amateur night” performances at North Hollywood’ famed Palomino club. A deluge of fancy graphics set the pace, with the apparent guiding principle of squeezing as many snippets as possible into a 30-second spot. But even in the longer pieces, no one ever gets too real, too impassioned, or too informative (although Emmylou Harris and Delbert McClinton give it their best in Vol. 2). This is country, city-style, with much more hype than heart. C
