A documentary about the making of the first Sting album. Not only is some time spent in the studio (much of was recorded in an interesting mansion), but there is also some interesting information about what was going on in the lives of the members of his band during that time, including Sting's child being born.Written by
The song "Bring on the Night" was originally recorded by Sting's English pop band The Police and was the fourth track on their second album "Reggatta de Blanc" (1979). "Bring on the Night" is also the name of Sting's live concert album first released in 1986 and which had been recorded from several live shows and concerts the previous year in 1985. It is some of the songs and events of this 1985 concert tour which are depicted in this film. See more »
During the last song, "Message in a Bottle", Sting plays a cream Fender Telecaster. For the last verse through the end of the song, he is playing a black Fender Stratocaster. When he says, "Goodnight," and walks off stage, he is seen taking off the cream Telecaster. The song is clearly pieced together from separate performances. See more »
Overall it's very interesting to follow the start of Sting's "new" music career after The Police. I think a lot of fans might have been disappointed, since the music he started playing after leaving The Police was completely different from what he used to do. However, I think this movie really shows what a incredible and talented musician Sting is. "Bring on the night" is a film that all fans of Sting & The Police MUST see. It's interesting to hear Sting talking about some of his experiences considering music. Yes, he seems a little arrogant in person - almost depressed. But his stage prescens is one of a kind. His voice sounds better and more clean than when he was in The Police and it's fun to see him play other instruments than bass guitar, like piano and electric guitar. Not many people know that he also plays the saxophone, oboe, banjo and several other instruments and is in fact very scilled in playing them.
