4 stars Video review only, I didn't get a CD with mine. Steve Hackett, with few frills. Hackett takes center stage, but his brother John and Roger King are integral to this show. It's a mellow, mostly acoustical affair except for the microphones and keyboards. (aaagh, you've got electronics mixed with my acoustics?!?) MTV Unplugged, eat their dust! Roger's the only one who keeps it from being totally acoustic instrument-wise. But he does beef up the sound with the synths when it's needed.

All mellow with some stuff from the classical musical roots of prog, a few nice bits of Hackett's solo material, a touch of jazz (not really Jazz On A Summer Night is progfolk), and snippets and whole songs from his contributions to Genesis (Horizons and Hairless Heart and Blood On The Rooftops, OH MY!).
