Prog Reviewer
3 stars This is a cheapie DVD and its ratings here are not very favourable. OK, the performances are not real live - one can notice the lip sync - but that's not very dramatic fault in my opinion. The picture or sound clarity are not bad at all, as is often the case with such early concert footage. And the set list includes many great songs such as 'Lovely to See You', 'Never Comes the Day', 'Are You Sitting Comfortably', 'Legend of a Mind', 'Candle of Life', 'Tuesday Afternoon' and 'Question'. Only two songs are not very interesting: the monotonous 'Tortoise and the Hare' and naively light-hearted 'Lazy Day'.

Despite the fake live performance (some vocals ARE actually sung live), one can sense a nice intimacy of the concert as the audience is sitting right under the band's feet, so to speak. There are no many DVD's with the Moody Blues at their halcyon days, so I wouldn't spit on this one. A friend of their classic years has lots to enjoy here. 2 stars, rounded up.

A thank you goes to a huge MB fan I've come to know lately. More DVD reviews will be coming.
