4 stars This is a BBC recording, the sound quality is pretty good and the camera-settings are even better than on GIANT ON THE BOX because you can always see whenever someone of the members is playing a solo. It was a pleasure to see "On Reflection" and many other Free-Hand songs, "Playing The Game" and the outstanding "Funny Ways" live. I was also pretty surprised that "Two Weeks In Spain", "Mountain Time" and "For Nobody" were that rocky. But the song which sweeped me out off my feet was "Memories Of Old Days" where the entire band is playing the guitar (DEREK SHULMAN is playing the bass-guitar here). Just amazing! The order of the songs is sometimes a bit strange: For example "Betcha Thought We Couldn't Do It" seems to be a little bit missplaced because it is played after the calm "Memories Of Old Days" and the also calm "Funny Ways", but it doesn't really fit to the GENTLE GIANT set anyway. Though the vibraphone solo on "Funny Ways" (played by GENTLE GIANT'S keyboarder KERRY MINNEAR) and the entire arrangement of "On Reflection" are really impressing, the freaky solos and parts are somehow a bit missing. However, this is a great DVD!
