"Good to see some DVD's coming out of some more Proggressive bands(For lack of a better word). Nektar DVD is a good performance at Nearfest, The first time the Original line-up has played together in 26 years, You could feel the vibe was great and Nektar rocked w/ some inspired performances. There are some bonus stuff interviews and some old footage of Nektar. Worth its price and it mentions another DVD Vol 2 to follow. No telling how many were pressed so grab one immediately and enjoy Nektar in Concert. Tab in the Ocean,Desolation Valley,Nelly the Elepant(Great Jam),Man on the Moon, Recycled,Its all over,RTF Part 1,Now,Crying in the Dark,King of Twilight,Figity Queen...
P.S. Best DVD's I have seen:
Roger Waters- in the Flesh
Jethro Tull-Living W/ the Past
Blue Oyster Cult-A Long Days Night"

"This a very good way to discover this underrated band. This is what progressive music is all about. Long and complex compositions that have enough emotion in it to keep it interesting. Not a bad song on this show. There is also some interesting visuals on the screen. A must for the prog fans. This DVD show's you how the 70's music is still enjoyable today."

"It may have been 26 years between Nektar performances, but from this showing, you would never believe it. Absolutely scinillating(sp)and magical. The music is marvellous, the interviews are quite entertaining and informative and the camera work is very solid. Having seen the show live, I can say the DVD captured the feeling as well as any recorded show I have seen before. For Nektar fans this is a MUST have; and for those who may wish to sample brilliant progressive rock, then this is still for you.
Jump on the DVD while you still can; you will not be sorry."
They had to cut RTF??? Why? Why?

"Similar in sentiment to another reviewer, my criticism of this is not with the band but with the editing. This is a very good performance. But... Remember the Future was played in full at this show and they cut all of it out except for a 5 min excerpt (Let it Grow). why? Couldn't they have cut "Nelly the Elephant" or "Fidgety Queen" for example, if they really had to cut something?? Which I don't see why they would because the DVD doesn't last much more than an hour.
And for those of you considering shelling out the exorbitant Amazon marketplace prices for this out-of-print item, don't!
