2.0 out of 5 stars Should have been better February 25, 2013
Verified Purchase
The DVD quality is lacking in my opinion. Both the stereo and 5.1 are very muddy, not clear at all for this day and age.
The videography is also of poor quality.
As far as the song selection goes, it is top notch, although Wetton looks bored most of the time.
The guitarist fills in nicely for Holdsworth, he was also on the UKZ ep and played well.
The drummer fills in nicely for Bruford/Bozzio.
I missed a shot to see them last year in NYC, so this is a nice fill in, but they could have mastered the whole thing a heck of a lot better.
This is just my opinion, please no flaming at me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic beyond words! June 22, 2013
Verified Purchase
Please disregard the negative reviews posted. I am a huge fan of the first U.K. album and if you have any doubts about Bruford and Holdsworth being absent here then put those doubts to rest. The two young guns filling in here are stellar throughout! The stage and lighting production is very minimalist but the musicianship is fantastic beyond words! I actually appreciate the minimalist approach production wise as it enhances the intimacy of the musicians. Wetton is not boring as one reviewer previously stated. He is brilliant and certainly inspired as well as Jobson. Loved the overhead shots looking down on the drummer's full kit. Bruford is out there possibly wishing he hadn't passed on this!

4.0 out of 5 stars Well played show April 4, 2013
This is Jobson and Wetton + Alex Machacek & Marco Minnemann (both excellent players on this & their own stuff). No Bruford/Holdsworth (of course) - they lost interest in it back then & more so now. Few if any musicians could fill their shoes but IMO these songs are done about as well as they could possibly be played live - even with all the difficulties of reproducing the same keyboard sounds from the time and pulling off the violin work to boot. EJ & JW didn't really play their ages - EJ played as nimbly as 1978 & JW's voice sounded surprising good (better than I would've expected).

As others have mentioned they did look rather bored - or perhaps just too serious? Technically excellent performances but it didn't appear to be much fun doing it. Also, the video quality is by no means state of the art & the audio quality perhaps could've been better. The mix was good so there was nice separation between the instruments. Even with the audio/video not being perfect it is all & all a good dvd. Anyone who likes U.K. should enjoy it. Given the much lower budgets independent/niche type bands have to cope with these days I for one can certainly cut Jobson some slack.

4.0 out of 5 stars Living legends of prog . The drummer is outwordly. March 2, 2013
The path to the inmortal musical stature of Jobson and Wetton included these bands: Curved Air, Zappa, Roxy Music,Family, King Crimson, Wishbone Ash, Uriah Heep, Asia and more.
For anyone that has followed this giants'carrer, this DVD is great! except for the sound, which is indeed not at the level us fans expect. Sounds like a great bootleg, no more.

I even did not miss Tery Bozzio, even though he is one of my top ten drummers ever. I was really, really pissed off to know that Bozzio was not in, but in a few seconds this Marco Minneman straightened me out. He plays with incredible taste and accuracy. In fact , he is kind of the star here, visually and soundwise. And about the guitarist? holy s***! Jobson hired nothing but the best for this gig.

Now, the most important thing: The music... great as ever. The quality of these songs makes them prog classics. Jobson's keyboard and violin work is outstanding in this DVD. And wetton still has that great voice and masterbuilt bass lines.

4.0 out of 5 stars Musicianship is excellent! November 5, 2013
Verified Purchase
This is another example of the shrinking budget of musicians to present their performances in the best possible way.
Eddie plays incredible but the faux Hammond is so evident. The synth lines are played superbly but the minimoog and CS 80 sound is mediocre. The violin is awesome and Wetton sings like he's still in his 20's! The drummer and guitarist do an amazing job. If you love UK you must own this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent performance June 9, 2014
Verified Purchase
The audio quality is a bit lacking by today's standards, but that is completely negated by the great performance. All musicians are firing on all cylinders the whole time. Eddie Jobson is absolutely a stand-out. Some made comments about Wetton's lack of enthusiasm, but the fact that he nails the vocals and bass duties perfectly make up for that also. For those familiar with the drummer and guitarist then you know they're are top notch. For those that aren't you'll be pleased with their performance. I recommend this to any UK fan.
