Movie Reviews

A serious disappointment
Roger W. Macdonald-evoy | Cheyenne, WY United States | 07/06/2003
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Sometimes things are not what they appear to be on the cover. And this is one. If you want a DVD that is mostly interviews and interrupted music, this is for you. Cutting in and out of the outstanding perdormance of Pirates was horrible. This DVD is an injustice to a great band."
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I read all of the reviews posted here after I had ordered the DVD, but before it arrived. I was sick to my stomach, because I was sure I made a big mistake as I also thought it was a concert DVD. When it arrived, I considered returning it but instead cranked up the sound and settled in for an hour and a half. What I found was a well put together documentary of the band with some great clips from the past. Whereas "Live at the Royal Albert" is a concert video (of 50+ year old men trying to rock), this one has excerpts from some of the great shows of the past. I do stress excerpts, because the songs are either incomplete or interrupted with voice overs. BUT - it does have "Pirates" from the Montreal concert (with orchestra) and footage of the spinning piano from the California Jam show. I'd much rather see these then watch an hour and a half of the "new" show. So what I ended up with is a mixed bag. The sound quality is average at best, the video can be frustrating (SHOW the orchestra for goodness sakes!!), but what makes this disc essential is it's historical significance for ELP fans. Take a walk down memory lane and give this one a try. If you were a big fan in 1975, then it's "guaranteed to blow your head apart" and you will be happy. If "Black Moon" is your cup of tea, then I say take a pass unless you want to see the roots of the band."
Only for the hard core

(2 out of 5 stars)

"Some great footage from the early days, but the bits are too far apart and too short. Most of the tunes on this disc from the Black moon tour aren't up to usual ELP standards. If you're looking for an ELP concert disc, this ain't the one. Get this one after you've gotten the rest.Also, I have to agree that this disc wasn't put together very well. Very hap hazard and disjointed. The sound's pretty good, though."
Misleading box information
Claudio | 12/19/2001
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Very frustrating! ELP is one of my all-time favorite bands and there are so few movies on them. I guess someone tried to make some bucks out of this situation. The info on the box is misleading. There is not a single complete song available in this disc. Several interviews and footage were old and already presented on the multimedia track of their King Biscuit Flour Hour Live CD. This disc is simply a patch of old material, not exactly a documentary project. The Dolby 5.1 track is awfully mixed, so bad that I preferred to listen to the Dolby 2.0 one.A shame to release a disc with mostly old interviews available elsewhere, and glimpses of live performances. I guess the new ELP Live at the Albert Hall is the one I should have bought. Unfortunately it wasn't available at the store on the day I was easily fooled to buy this one as a real ELP DVD. The Welcome Back DVD should be a freebie/complement to the Albert Hall Live DVD, not sold as a separate stand-alone item."
