3 stars This EP was quite funny for me at time of release because it was part of Hammersmith Odeon's live performance where the band (through EMI) released the VHS version of "Recital of The Script". It was part of EMI's marketing strategy, I thought. I remember vividly that I purchased this EP with the laser disc format in Singapore but with PAL system where my player was NTSC. Of course, I could nit watch the laser disc but I was so PROUD having this laser disc which still with me until now and never been played till I'm writing this. I once thought buying a PAL laser disc player for the sake of watching this laser disc. Lucky that my colleague had the VHS version so finally I could watch this EP. It features only two songs: "Grendel" from the debut LP with an excellent live performance where Fish was using masque and played an act with a boy watched the show; and also "The Web" from debut album "Script". It was kind like feeling relieved that finally I could watch this live video and it completed the whole Hammersmith Odeon set.

But that was THEN, and this is NOW ...

You do not need to worry purchasing this EP in the VHS format as EMI has incorporated these two video into one DVD: "Recital of The Script"; so now you have a full liveset of the real live performance. I have written the review of this DVD in this site. But for this EP, I would not recommend you to buy (if it's still available in the market) even though this is a good video. Decision is yours. Keep on proggin' ..

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW
