4 stars This is now finally available on DVD. It is from a concert performed by the '90125' line-up (Rabin/Kaye/Anderson/White/Squire) in Edmonton in 1984, though it is not the complete concert. If you like the Rabin line-up then you will probably enjoy this: of the 9 tracks on the original film, all but 2 come from 90125. This is a classic film, especially their rendition of Starship Trooper, which has more energy and excitement than any other version I have heard by any line-up - an exhilerating and orgasmic moment! There are some other excellent performances here too - particularly Hold On and It Can Happen - and Chris Squire plays a very prominent role, though I could do with a little less of the posturing by Rabin.

The DVD comes with extras, the most significant being the 'director's cut' version, which is the concert footage without any of the extra 'visual effects' which most people - especially those not familiar with the original video - will prefer. It is a pity that the bonus track - Roundabout, which was cut from the original film - could not have been inserted into the main film instead of being accessed separately.
