3 stars Filmed at Golders Green Hippod, such an interesting "Sight and Sound Concert" footage - even with a commentary track - is worth checking out at least...the music menu is composed by Kenny Minnear and his support is precious as usual (not for his creativity and talent only...)...The first disc represents a 1978 concert and sounds quite fascinating, instead their look is quite forgettable; anyway never mind - in my opinion - cause the present historical document witnesses an important era for G.G ...even though some songs are taken from the album "The Missing Piece", which for me is a bit uneven. After all the picture/quality sound works quite well, especially by appreciating the rare videos inside, but their approach sometimes is not convincing,above all when Derek Shulman plays the bass guitar in a different contest (in comparison to their normal standard), which seems a bit forced by their exigency to capture the attention of the crowd...it's a minor question, being the emblem of such a great versatility of this strange band.

Add an half star at least!!
