2.0 out of 5 stars Not impressive, September 16, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Live at Shepherds Bush [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I had high hopes in this concert since I basically grew up when this music was on the airwaves. This concert is from the band's twilight years. Paul Carrick's voice is off key and very raspy, he simply can not command any prescense on stage and the band sounds horrible. Basically no ambiance or charisma coming from this band. It's too bad since their music was ok on the recordings.

Be cautioned, that on 2 of the songs("Beggar on a Beach of Gold" & "Word of Mouth"), that Paul Carrack was not the singer on the studio versions. These songs were originally sung by the late Paul Young(of the group "Sad Cafe"), and these songs are in keys that are slightly too high for Paul Carrack. I guess that the group could have de-tuned the songs downward to make them easier for Carrack to sing, but that would have been disappointing to the audience. The issue of the keys are the obvious reason why the group doesn't play "All I Need is a Miracle".

Good input! I didn't know that.

On all of the Mike & The Mechanics albums up through 1999's unreleased in the U.S.A. "Mike & The Mechanics"(A.K.A. "M6"), Young was the vocalist on one-third of the songs. He died of a sudden heart attack in 2000. Today, Mike leads an all-new group of Mechanics(featuring vocalists Tim Howar & Andrew Roachford) and their newest album "The Road" is a UK-only release on Sony.

I thought the dvd was pretty good. Not a lot of bells and whistles but enjoyable and worth the price of $7.86 delivered
