4 stars This wonderful two DVD set is the definitive historical reference on ELP. it features all members of the band, present day, commenting on various happenings and developments in the history of ELP, from their birth to the less than stellar reunions of the early nineties. It contains several clips of old footage from the 70s, like a candid rehearsal tape, clips of live performances and TV appearances. The documentary section is full of great information and it's great to hear the band's views. Bob Moog is a guest interviewee here too.

The packaging is great, and the quality of the clips is, for the most part pretty great. The film doesn't have the best production though, many things are out of place like the aforementioned Cal Jam clips, and have odd sound mixing or other preventable errors. Overall it's a great retrospective DVD and a great addition to any ELP fan's collection.

OGTL | 4/5 |
