Level 42 wembley
B. Garfield | london England | 04/22/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The dvd looks very good and sounds great with plenty of meaty bass. Nice interview with Mark King also thrown in."
At last this concert is available on DVD!

"This concert was only available on video for many years, and was out of print for about the last 10 years---now finally it's available on DVD, so don't miss it! Truly a major event when it happened, Level 42 represents some of the finest that the 80's English pop scene had to offer. The music is astounding, and the live show will give you chills! The "bass cam" (camera mounted on the end of Mark's bass) adds to the fun."

"I purchased this tape in '87 when it first came out-somehow it got lost in the shuffle... I happily replaced it.Having seen Level 42 live twice in the 80's(PLEASE COME BACK TO N.Y.!!)I knew how great they are live. This tape is a terrific showcase for the incredible talent of Mark King(as well as the other band members).King ranks right up there with any great modern bass player you can name-Stanley Clarke, Louis Johnson..Every viewing gives me the chills-IT'S THAT GOOD!!"

"Mark King is arguably the best bass musician to ever make the majors. It is hard to fathom while listening to and watching this dvd, that Mark had only been playing for about eight years. For Mark, the original instrument of choice had been the drums. It is pure joy to sit back and enjoy this fine time capsule of Level 42 at Wembley, as 1986 wound down. Mark King sings and plays to an enthusiastic full house during the high point of Level 42's musical career. Shortly after this stellar achievement, Boon and Phil Gould left the band. It is great that this dvd captures the original line-up at their best. Mike Lindup is the perfect compliment to Mark's vocals and a master musicain, as is the entire line-up, including Krys Mack on sax, and Annie McCaig on back-up vocals. The level of musicianship this band displayed is phenomenal and all captured on this dvd. All of the big hits are here, making this a must have for the fans who enjoyed the more jazz/pop fusion the band veered toward as the eighties pressed on. This live recording captures the pure joy of making music. This material does not come across as dated eighties tunes. There were no bands playing this type of music so it sounds timeless. The sound quality is excelent as well as the picture. There is also a video of the song "Running in the Family", and "The Sun Goes Down". And if that is not enough there is an interview with Mark King from 2005. This dvd is thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish. The songs are: Fashion Fever, World Machine, Children Say, Love Games, Leaving Me Now, The Chant Has Begun, Lessons in Love, The Sun Goes Down, Something About you, Hot Water, The Chinese Way, (although the last is not mentioned on the cover) Enjoy."
