An amazing journey through the music of David Eugene Edwards and company represented by these various shows along with video and interview footage.
Their interpretation of Joy Divisions "Heart and Soul" will leave you spell bound as well as version of "Outlaw Song" , "Alone and Forsaken" and many others. The quality on this DVD is much improved over the previous released offering and highly recommended for those folks who enjoy journeying into the abyss of music that transcends language and communicates through universal principals of spellbinding beauty. Labeled by the music world as "Gothic" which misses the point of this band all together. 16 HP simply borrow from the past and show us what music can become when in the hands of masterful craftsmen.
Edwards other incarnation Woven Hand are must own records,Consider the Birds,Mosaic,Woven Hand and should be checked into by anyone who still believes that music has healing and redeeming qualities.
Most certainly 5 stars plus....."
Wow

"I never had the opportunity to see them live. The live show(s) captured on these DVDs almost gave me goose bumps to watch. If you like 16 HP, you should get this."
One of the best live DVD's I own.

"I really love music, and in many ways the live element is what makes the art truly transcend all other art forms, and bands that pull it off well stand high over those that do not. I never had the pleasure of seeing 16HP while they existed, in fact I never even heard of them till long after they disbanded, and then only by stumbling upon Wovenhand. That being said, this makes up for my lack of opportunity. I own 20 or so live DVD's by bands in a variety of genres. This disk is as intense in performance as any metal show I've seen, either in person or disk format. The previous reviewers have already done a fine job saying what is on the disk. The only thing I'll add is my agreement, the DEE's intensity and depth that he transmits through his looks is downright frightening, I quite look forward to seeing Wovenhand at some point for the chance to experience it in person. Also many many people have used a bow while playing a guitar. But his use of it and technique are quite unique, and worthy of mention. Especially noteworthy is the performance of "Horsehead Fiddle" to finish the first concert. It's dark, and spooky and absolutely beautiful, one of the best things I've ever witnessed on stage. Get this DVD its well worth it, and if you're not already a fan of this man's music... it will surely make you one."
Wow....again!

"I only regret not seeing these guys live. This DVD semi makes up for it. I feel justified missing church if I plug this in on Sunday or any given morning. DEE has the most penetrating eyes I have ever seen. A little trivia....the bandoneon he plays is over 100 years old. This is an absolute classic DVD and one the the ages."
