2 stars I bought this DVD with high expectations but I was disappointed in two ways: first the running time of only 30 minutes and second the voice of Chris Farlowe, often hailed but it's not my cup of tea, a bit too theatrical. The sound of Atomic Rooster ranges from blues and hardrock to classical and jazz, very varied and dynamic. I have always been a fan of keyboard player Vincent Crane (author of the hit Fire by The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown) because of his unique, often very hot style featuring a very fast right hand playing soli and a left hand doing the bass runs. He turned out to be a real master of the Hammond organ, on this DVD you can watch some exciting footage It's recorded during a Belgian TV special in 1972, in the same year that also Genesis appeared on the Belgian TV, a big hand for our southern neighbours! Rating: 2,5 stars.
