PROG REVIEWER
2 stars This review is a warning to all eager and longing progheads who wants to buy DVD's from Classic Rock (and alied labels)! A few years ago I discovered that the Classic Rock label has a very doubtful DVD releasing policy. Not only because they don't have permission from the bands to release the DVD's like Inside King Crimson but also they deliberately fool their custumers. For example, they release a live DVD with front cover pictures from bands from The Seventies but when you watch that DVD it turns out to be footage from The Eighties and Nineties!

In this case it's also close to misleading custumers because it's a different title but in fact the same DVD concert as The 25th Anniversary Concert! The information on the back cover of this special DVD mentions that there is "archive footage from the early years", this turns out to be 3 odd video clips with the band in and around a house in the county, absolutely crap! So this review is for all those BJH fans who think that this DVD offers something special, DON'T BUY IT. And "I won't get fooled again" by Classic Rock!

By the way, the concert is a decent performance by BJH with tasteful duo- keyboards, pleasant vocals and some very inspired guitar work, if you want more details, please read Andrea Cortese his excellent review about the 25th Anniversary Concert!
