Are you nuts! Vinnie Moore is awesome on this CD (DVD). Some of the best live playing ever! You can't replace Michael Schenker but Vinnie Moore does a great job. Jason Bonham is solid and the band is tight! Video and sound on the DVD is very well done. If your a UFO fan this is a must! Again, you'll never replace a Michael Schenker in UFO, but this is as good as it get's without him!

I saw UFO blow Van Halen & Aerosmith away at a Festival in Los Angeles in the late 70's, have bought and enjoyed their work over the years, then caught them again last year on the "You are Here" Tour. This DVD clearly shows how the bands sound and song catalog has blown away rock fans for three decades. You know this is a very talented group (or you wouldn't be reading this!), but the surprise is how well this DVD captures UFO. I only have about ten Rock DVD's, but this is easily the best planned and produced among the group.

I bought this for the show and Disc 1 delivers a strong effort. Phil has the best voice in rock, Vinnie adds to the UFO sound within his distinct style and the rhythm section is rock solid. With so much to choose from, we all could debate the song list. I'm glad they included five new tunes. I probably would have traded 1-2 classics for perhaps something more obscure from the 80's/90's. Hey, I love Only you can Rock Me as much as you, but I've been listening to it for almost 30 years.

Shooting the show in a club was a good choice since UFO is more about the music than the show, but they could have picked a club that had a least a little more room for the band and a stage with a little visual appeal. It's not far removed from someone building a stage in a warehouse. In all of Europe, there must be a club with better camera sightlines and that comes across better on camera. Not a big deal, but this is a DVD and you can't help notice that the backdrop ain't helpin' the cause much.

Disc 2 is an outstanding effort, with two distinct parts. The six in studio songs are well selected and gives us a chance to watch the guys at work, ESPECIALLY Vinnie. Love to Love and Try Me are supported by strings ...

I've been a UFO fan since the 70s, and this DVD is just a fantastic representation of the band's music.

Disc 1: Live in a medium sized venue, great lighting, video, and audio quality. The 5.1 digital audio is exceptional. I have noticed that some concert videos in 5.1 do not do justice to the concert sound, but this one has a premium mix. Performances by all band members are flawless, with the non-original members, Bonham and Moore, covering the original parts perfectly while adding their own unique touches. Mogg, Way, and Raymond are, as usual, in perfect form.

Disc 2: Live in the studio. Just what you would hope for with this sort of setting. All players in casual studio setting with a super clear video and exceptional audio quality. Small string section sits in on a couple of the cuts, very cool...

If you like UFO, you will love this DVD. Highly Recommended!

I agree with others that this DVD was long overdue. I'm collecting all the UFO concert footage I can find, and there's not much out there. It's great to see UFO still rocking.

Vinnie Moore's performance was amazing and the most surprising part of the set. It's obvious he was having a hell of a good time with the music and it showed.

Mogg's voice has aged, but still sounds great. He early starts on a song or two, and changes some of the lyrics around - but I'll cut him some slack cause it's an impressive performance otherwise.

While the concert on disk one is great, the studio recordings on disk two is the real gem. I'd love to see some more of these studio videos. Again, Vinnie really shines here.

I highly recommend this as the best UFO on DVD, and hope that I can someday watch "Stranger in the Night" footage done in the same quality.

I tend to agree with the previous reviewer, that it would be nice to see/hear some Chapman-era stuff performed instead of the same ole SITN set list. The DVD at 200 minutes is great value. The in-studio set is SUPERB, hearing some ole chestnuts, like Pack It Up and Go and Try Me and of course some additional banter from the boys, although Vinnie seems unprepared. I actually think Vinnie is a good sub for Schenker. The live set is decent but there's too many close-ups and too many cut-away shots, so you feel a bit dizzy by the end (or maybe it was just the cough medicine?), so that's why only 4/5 stars. And no Natural Thing? Unforgivable!

The video quality is not the best, but the songs and performance are great. The special features are great as well. Really get to appreciate how good Vinnie Moore is on guitar. Great song selection for the concert and really liked the newer songs as well.

Very well done show. While Vinnie Moore is no Michael Schenker, he is still very good in his own way - it is his style that makes these same favorite songs fresh again in a new light! Phil Mogg's vocals are flawless as always, and his sense of humor, subtle as it is, shines through, especially in the studio segment of the DVD. Pete Way's bass was solid as always, but could have been a little punchier live as in the studio segment. Paul Raymond's keyboards and rhythm guitar were also subtly flawless as always - VERY solid. And Jason Bonham taking the place of Andy Parker on drums - some big shoes to fill, but one would think he was playing with UFO for much longer than he actually was, a very nice fit! No surprise considering his pedigree. All in all a very good DVD. Worth picking up not just for lifelong fans of the band such as myself, but for fans of rock and roll. Period. Get this DVD, you WON'T be disappointed at all!
