This performance was recorded in January 2010 during the 30th Anniversary Japan Tour. On this tour, the Michael Schenker Group consisted of Michael Schenker, Gary Barden, Simon Phillips, Wayne Findlay, and Neil Murray. The band, in impectable form, blasts through a track list highlighting all stages of Schenker's career: from UFO and Scorpions hits, through MSG classic tracks, to his solo compositions.

This is a great addition to the MSG and/or UFO fan. Lots to like here with many songs from the first two MSG releases. The camera work and audio are very good. Sometimes there are some missed opportunities where the camera angle is absent from Michael's fantastic finger work, but they are not too annoying and the video quality is excellent. Highly recommended!

Probably the best quality DVD release from those DVD's that are available of Michael Schenker. I should know - I handed a list of over 300 recordings of Schenker to his official website at their request. It is great to see Michael so ably climb out of his rough patch in 2007. One in the eye to those false prophets who keep saying "he's lost it". These false prophets come and go, but Schenker continues to overcome his demons again and again. Nobody is denying that he's had his demons. But, come on - people have been saying "he's lost it" from the beginning, when nothing could be further from the truth. Again and again and again, he rises from the ashes. He's made dozons of albums, all different to each other, and all brilliant. He rarely fails to turn out less than 4-5 classics per album. His "best of" collection is more than 24 hours in duration. The man is a musical genius. He wrote almost all the hits that made UFO famous, and invented most of the guitar-styles that make classic rock what it is today. Schenker IS classic rock - possibly the only man ever to really understand the genre, with very few exceptions. Whilst many UFO fans are also Schenker fans, a certain breed of UFO fan behave like fans of Stockport County FC who, briefly, had Maradona on their team. When he turned up, they loved him. When he left, they hated him. When he re-joined, they loved him again. When he left again, they hated him again. All this is pure cobblers. It has everything to do with tribalism, and nothing to do with musical assessment.

Anyway, to the DVD. The DVD contains a typical MSG set: mainly classics from the first four albums, but also three of his latest tracks (I Want You, A Night to Remember, and Dance Lady Gipsy).

Absolute MUST BUY for fans of this great guitarist. The show that is presented on this DVD is a flawless set of MSG classics, with the original lineup of Simon Phillips on drums, Neil Murray on bass guitar, Gary Barden on vocals and newcomer Wayne Findlay alternating (seamlessly) between rhythm guitars & keyboards. Worth every penny!!

This is a must have for any Schenker fan. Although his output has been of varying quality over the last decade or so, this DVD features him in fine form, playing well, and Gary Barden does a good job on vocals. Sound and picture quality are excellent, and there are a couple of cool bonus features on the DVD.

Hooosh! At last, at last... At last a Schenker concert is captured adequately in video. The 1981 show in Hamburg is also good, but hti sone here is simply amazing.

All the band is firing on all cylinders (to use an old cliche). The sound of Michael's Dean guitar is fantastic. Gary Barden is singing better than in the eighties, Neil Murray is bass player excellence itself, relatively modest and a little behind Barden and Schenker at the stage. Keyboardist/guitarist Wayne "Payl Raymond" Findlay does the job with enthusiasm. But man, that guy behind the drums... Simon Phillips is just a monster drummer. The guy knows everything. Just hearing/watching him play in this DVD is an experience in itself. The ultimate pro.

The extras are also good, although absolutely nothing "profound" is said. To watch Phillips says that he did not even talk to Michael in the recording process of 2008's IN THE MIDST OF BEAUTY is incredible (digital file transfers).
