4 stars I was at this gig and it was a very special if emotional night, being Heather Findlay's last time with the band. Needless to say I bought the DVD when it was released and it brought back all the memories. I had only discovered Mostly Autumn about a year earlier and had seen them twice before. Having heard those of their studio albums which are still available, I'd never found one that I'd consider excellent all the way through, but this DVD has a tracklist which takes the best songs from every album (except Lord of the Rings) and showcases them in a fantastic way. As such, I would recommend it to anyone who wants to investigate this band's music (as well as to those who are fans already, but I daresay all of those people will already have bought it). Ther sound quality is excellent, though my one criticism is with the lighting. Leamington Assembly isn't the best for stage lighting so on this film you see a lot of the musicians at the front of the stage (Heather, Brian Josh and the two keyboard players), but the drummer, bassist and guitarist are hidden at the back most of the time, and backing singer Livvy Sparnenn (now the band's lead singer) isn't seen at all till she presents Heather with flowers at the end!

Top tracks: Fading Colours, Half the Mountain, Heroes Never Die, Mother Nature, Evergreen
