Format: DVD
There are two different versions of this little film - one as broadcast by the BBC on Omnibus and the one that Palmer released as a supporting feature in the cinema. They have different soundtracks in a number of places and by far the more desirable is the TV version.
Unfortunately Amazon is showing the cover picture of the TV version but customers are likely to receive the other one with a completely different, black and white photo, of Bruce in jeans and white shoes leaning against a wall - this is the cinema version.

The original TV version with live performances instead of the ones dubbed on from the album (which anyone interested in this DVD is likely to already own) was something I have always wanted to have. I do have a mono recording I made on reel-to reel at the time it was broadcast in 1969 but I can't play it now and when I ordered this I was really looking foreword to seeing and even more to HEARING it again (hopefully in stereo this time).
Admittedly not all the numbers were performed live - those which are heard over outdoor footage were dubbed on - but at least those in the studio when the musicians are seen playing were actually heard recorded live.

If this DVD had been the original BBC version (in which Bruce is also heard playing Messiaen instead of the dubbed on Widor) I would not have hesitated to give it 5 stars as a must-buy for anyone - and I would have taken the trouble to write this review a couple of years back.

I saw this on PBS back in '72 (?) And thought I'd never see it again. If you like Jack Bruce you've got to check this out. A real insight to the man with some terrific footage of the musicians involved in the Things We Like album. WOW.

Well done incitefull intro to Bruce's post Cream life in his solo album phase. High light is amazing church organ solo improvisation. In his bio, 'Jack Bruce composing himself' by Harry Shapiro, he says that when he was in Tony Williams Lifetime with John McLaughlin, organist Larry Young played the best music he'd ever heard!
