3 stars This DVD presents a CURVED AIR studio-concert filmed by the Belgian TV in 1972.Now the director had the idea to superpose the band images with images of a Zoo: state of the art 70's TV! This has quite a comic side effect, especially on 'Propositions' where you see an eagle tearing to pieces a guinnee pig and eating it. (You don't want your kids to see this DVD, otherwise they will think that Prog has something to do with murdering innocent guinnee pigs). The studio concert itself is of good quality,the images are clear and the sound is good. 'Melinda More Or Less' is my favourite track, it is a beautiful song, you see mainly Sonja Kristina playing acoustic guitar and this is the only animal-free song, instead you got some pychedelic bubbles on the edge of the screen (Those were the days...) 'Vivaldi' is the longest track and as on the record a showcase for Daryl Way's violin skills, observed by some ennoyed fishes, that don't seem to appreciate Daryl's playing at his right value. The interview with Daryl Way is interesting but quite short. The DVD is an interesting document about Curved Air and 70's TV, especially if you like Prog and animals.
