3 stars This is the complete concert without cuts. Good sound, good pictures, good music! + a 90 min documentary about the band. This is how concert DVD's should be!

If you have this DVD there is really no need to buy the studio albums unless you are a big fan or collector. This is the ultimate Colloseum product. The highlight for me is without doubt the complete Vallentyne Suite in what I consider it's ultimate version. Much better than the original studio album version. Indeed, all of the songs sound better here than on their respective original studio versions!

This DVD is also the only place to look if you want to see Dave Greenslade's wonderful keyboard playing on film (that I know of).

The only criticism is the tediously long drum solo. But it is an excellent place to go out for a coffee!

This is the best place to start if you want to discover Colloseum and for me this is the only Colloseum product you ever need. Also I think this DVD is a great place to start if you want to investigate the Jazz-rock/fusion sub-genre (not that I'm an expert on this though).

Good, very good.
