Adult film icon Chasey Lain has been making heads spin in the porno film industry for quite some time now. And while she may have been recently immortalized in the song 'The Ballad Of Chasey Lain' by The Bloodhound Gang a few years back, it's safe to say that her fifteen minutes aren't over yet, as Vivid Video presents with Eye Spy Chasey Lain, a greatest hits, or smorgasbord of porn if you will, featuring some of Ms. Ains' finest moments.
Although there is no 'play all' option on the DVD, the scene selection based menu is quite easy to navigate and you'll easily locate within the menus the following scenes from the following fine films:
House Of Chasey Lain starring Chasey Lain and Peter North features the two adult film superstars doing what they do best together in a bedroom. It's a reasonably passionate scene, and the two seem to be having a pretty good time together.
Chasey Loves Rocco starring Chasey Lain and Jeanna Fine features the two lovely ladies getting to know each other in the biblical sense in the bedroom, and going at it very aggressively. Rocco is nowhere to be seen, but with these two on parade, it really doesn't matter.
Chasin' Pink 6 starring Chasey and Inari Vachs features the pair of vixens all dolled up with Inari sporting a mesh cat suit and Chasey in a nice black evening gown. Again, they seem to appreciate each other quite a bit and look to be having quite a bit of fun together despite the serious looks they give each other.
Chasey Lain Saves The World starring Chasey Lain, Missy and Tony Tedeschi is a nice scene in which Chasey uses a vibrator on herself, masturbating frantically while she watches Missy give Tony a blow job outside.
White Weddingstarring Chasey Lain and Marc Wallice has nothing to do with the Billy Idol song of the same name but features the pair fooling around in a mixing studio while another uncredited couple gets it on in the other room.

Nymph starring Chasey Lain and Bobby Vitale, is probably one of Lain's most famous films and this scene has the two of them going at it in the shower together. It's a pretty steamy scene, pun intended, as the pair find themselves in some interesting positions in the tiled shower stall.
Chasin' Pink 5 with Chasey Lain and Tanya Danielle again has Ms. Lain and a friend fancied up in some interesting lingerie and playing together on an elaborate staircase. This scene has an almost dreamy feel, the way it's shot is rather soft and it gives it a nice, fantasy styled feeling.
The next scene is from an unnamed movie with Chasey on a beach, shedding her bikini to make time with some dude. They get all sandy as they roll around together, though they're careful not to get sand in too many odd spots.
From Viewpoint, starring Chasey with Vince Vouyer, we have a scene where the two proceed to have sex in the kitchen after Chasey does a little strip tease for Vince. Kind of an odd setting, this scene has a little more realism to it than the others based on where it was shot.
Chasin' Pink 2 with Shanna Valentine has Chasey and friend making out outdoors at a construction site. It's a shorter scene and not quite as graphic as the other ones in the compilation, but the girls again look to be enjoying each other and having a good time.
The clips are all presented in their original fullframe aspect ratio and video quality really does vary from scene to scene. Some look better than others, but overall, despite some mild compression artifacts and some mild edge enhancement, these are better than the VHS tapes going around and don't look too bad considering the source material.
The audio, likewise, is a mixed bag. Some scenes are noticeably quieter than others and there is some hiss in the background in a few spots. Again, the average works out to be decent enough, and the Dolby Digital 2.0 soundtrack does get the trick done, but it would have been nice if they'd have balanced the levels in a more uniform fashion across the scenes.
Vivid has supplied a few interesting extra features on the disc, but sadly none of them have anything to do with Chasey Lain and they more or less feel like advertisements for their other products more than they feel like actual bonus features.
The Bonus Room contains three additional scenes, none of which feature Chasey Lain. First up is a clip from Color Blind 9 starring Silvia Saint and Mt. Marcus, which is followed by a scene from Hot Orchid starring Nina Ferrari and Marty Romano, and finally, a scene from Phone Sex starring Claudia and David Perry.
Next up are some previews for Set Fever, The Arrangement, and two other untitled movies. They're basically just quick edits of scenes from the aforementioned films made into brief collages of various sex scenes.
Behind The Scenes of Hot Orchid, is a making of featurette (again, Chasey is nowhere to be seen in this clip as she's not in the movie being made) that runs just over 17 minutes and features interviews and candid footage of the stars and starlets of the film.
The last of the extras consist of a mediocre photo gallery (Chasey is featured in this), a clip called Sexy Talk which just allows you to replay the phone sex commercials that Vivid forces you to watch before getting to the menu for the actual movie, and another link called The Web which is an add for the Vivid Video website.
While the inclusion of no new footage is lamentable, this is still a nice compilation and if you're looking to add some Chasy Lain to your home video library, what better way to start than with her greatest hits? But, if like me you're already familier with Chasey's body of work, this isn't really a mandatory purchase.
