FANTASTIC Concert by an very underrated band
K. A. Carlson | Etters, PA United States | 01/10/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Where can I even start, I love this band! This concert video was originally recorded by Much Music at The Ontario Place Forum in Toronto Canada on June 19, 1986 as the band was really starting to peak. They had honed their skills playing for two years straight, five nights a week as an opening act for bands like Journey, The Moody Blues and legend Tina Turner. This concert is their triumphant return to their home country playing 4 nights all sold out which was a record at The Forum at that time.
This concert features all five original members, Al Connelly, Alan Frew, Michael Hanson, Wayne Parker, and Sam Reid. The concert covers their entire debut album 'The Thin Red Line', minus the instrumental 'The Secret', plus one new song, 'After The Dance', that you don't see until they put out the 'Air Time' Album which was their Best of CD released in 1994.
1. Ancient Evenings
2. I Will be There
3. Closer To You
4. Thin Red Line
6. Vanishing Tribe
7. After The Dance
9. You're What I Look For
10. Looking At A Picture
11. Don't Forget Me (When I'm Gone)
There is a tiniest amount of behind the scenes footage at three small parts. There is also two Bonus Interviews, both with Alan Frew. Nothing special there, but the concert itself is the true winner.
The real reason to buy this concert video is if you're a fan of the band or their music. There is an equal amount of time given to all members of the band. Also for those of you that followed the band from the early days, you get Michael Hanson back on drums and background vocals. To me it never was quite the same after he left since he was so versatile and talented with his signing, master instrumental ability, and his incredible song writing he did with(or without)Frew. To me he was irreplaceable, but it shows how good they were that they were able to go on without him for at least one more album, before slowing down.
Still love the band to this day. The four remaining guys are still together and do a show from time to time. They all are into some different solo projects now. They are all amazing talented individuals and very very funny. Check them out at www.glasstiger.ca"
