4 stars This DVD features Rick in a one man show; no band and no vocalist either. The fact that he is all alone on stage seems to focus his playing and display his enormous talent more than ever. His playing here is fantastic and the DVD features great sound and picture quality as well as many zoomed in moments on his fingers.

Between songs Rick tells stories and jokes. He is a funny guy too!

The pieces of music he chooses to perform are exceptional too - he performs selections from his most well known albums including Journey to the Centre of the earth, The Six Wives of Henry IIX and King Arthur as well as Birdman Of Alcatraz from Criminal Record. In addition to this he plays songs of Yes, The Beatles and some classical music. The Yes songs are not very interesting as instrumentals but the Beatles song Eleanor Rigby is given a radically different and very interesting arrangement.

This DVD is highly recommended for Wakeman fans.
