5 stars I was fortunate enough to pick up a copy of this DVD at the Summer's End Festival this weekend, and treated myself to the Special Edition which includes a double live album as well as the 240min DVD. Recorded on the tour of spring 2006 this DVD is bang up to the moment stuff, the packaging is beautiful, really impressive. The gig is superbly shot, looks amazing,and sounds fantastic! I saw three gigs on this tour and this is a great momento, over two hours of stage performance that is gripping, and truly reflective of the feel of a Pendies gig! I find some "live" DVD's can sound sterile, but this really does sound great, it's like being there! The tracks feature a good mixture of then and now, and includes material from "The Jewel" all the way up to "Believe" and incudes the highly emotional "Edge of the World", which obviously had a huge reception from this Polish crowd! Some of my personal favourites were on the set list (Breaking the Spell, Am I really losing you?, The Wishing Well-pts2,3&4) The guys all look on top form, and shows off new boy on the drum stool Joe Crabtree in a very good way! They sound and look tight, and full of energy & passion for what they are doing! I think that this DVD should be a must for all those who were at the gigs on this tour, for all those who couldn't make it, and also as a great all round intro to the band for those of you who may harbour uncertainties. Also included as an extra is the "Pendragon Progumentary" a home filmed collection of diary shots taken during the recording of "Believe" some hilarious moments, and some sound footage......... this was previously available to stream from the bands website but to have it on DVD is great.........it's informative and really funny in parts! I am mightily pleased with this DVD, it looks amazing, sounds fantstic and will be played and awful lot! Now I just look forward to the next gig! ;-)
