# DVD Features:
The range of musical excerpts from a programme I fondly remember watching every Tuesday night during it's early years is so broad that a review, per se, is largely redundant. The mix of full-on live, live vox with backing track, and entirely mimed (though mostly very well) can be viewed as either quaint or irritating.
The original purchase I made had a fault: toward the start of most tracks there was a very short (less than a second) pause/jump. While it didn't ruin my enjoyment it was (is) irritating. Amazon, as is their way (for which I applaud them) replaced it instantly. Sadly the replacement has the same fault: so the Beeb are to blame. Beware.
Personal highlights include Kristofferson/Coolidge dueting "Help Me Make It Through The Night....real sexual tension, a young Tom Waits (Tom Traubert's Blues), Talking Heads (Psycho Killer), Robert Wyattt (Shipbuilding), Head Hands & Feet with Albert Lee and a pre-Chas'n'Dave Chas Hodges (Warming Up The Band), Gary Moore & "Friends" (i.e. Thin Lizzy) just to see the wonderful Phil Lydon again, and, maybe best of all, Stevie Marriott a la Humble Pie doing Black Coffee....definitely LIVE.
