Superlative DVD
Robert Moselle | Monterey, CA | 02/26/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The only "rip-offs" are by the people (reviewers) extracting the audio by using software. No one is "forcing" anyone to repuchase the DVD. It is a bonus for new purchasers, or repurchasers. Since when were CDs made part of DVD packages? This DVD is dramatic and powerful, with an ideal mix of Procol Harum classics and new songs, rich in lyrical quality with unmatchable musicianship, in a venue in keeping with this great British band."
Outstanding Performance and Recording
Joan May | CA USA | 04/16/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is one magnificent concert, wherein drummer Mark Brzezicki and guitarist Geoff Whitehorn, after more than 10 years with the group, (in my opinion) finally learned to do justice to Procol Harum's music. The musicianship throughout is outstanding, especially the interaction between Whitehorn and PH founding member, Hammond organist Matthew Fisher. The sound engineering is a revelation, and when played loud through a good sound system, this disk comes very close to matching the HUGE Dynamic Procol Harum Live sound from its Classic period, something that none of the studio albums or previous concert recordings has ever achieved.

The classic tunes sound fantastic - this is my favorite rendition of "Conquistador" anywhere - and the songs from The Well's On Fire, their 2003 CD, have been incredibly improved, so much more ALIVE!, than on that album. Standouts are "An Old English Dream," "The Question" and especially "The Signature", the exciting Fisher-composed instrumental.

Though the CD is a 60 minute excerpt of the entire concert, and I would have made a couple of substitutions, all the best tunes are there and its sound quality is excellent. I'm glad the CD has been made available because I'm planning on sending one to my local Classic Rock radio station and requesting some well-deserved airplay for "The Signature.""
Never sounded better

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Listen to Gary Brooker mangle the words to several PH classics! Watch as he fumbles with sheet music while the band vamps behind him! Try in vain to read the slogans on the guitarist's shirts! Then rewatch the whole concert, and revel in a great performance - two sets around an encore - featuring a band, incredible as it may seem, in it's prime. This is one of the best editions of the band... Quite Rightly So, A Salty Dog, Whisky Train, As Strong as Samson all soar, and they even reinvent the weakest song on their recent cd, The Question, turning it into a lively r&b jam. And there is nothing in pop music like Brooker's grand piano and Fisher's majestic Hammond organ playing. Too bad they're not speaking anymore."
Great band still going strong
Mark C. Chauvin | 11/24/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is one of the 70's greatest unsung heros of rock. And they are still going strong. With their classic Hammond B3 organ sound and grand piano make an eclectic addition to any classic rock listener's collection.

This video, taped at Union Chapel, is an awesome reminder of how wonderful the band was in its hayday."
