4 stars Excellent DVD by one of my fav prog bands ever Manfred Mann's Earth Band. On this DVD everyone can see the history of this band in diffrent periods from early '70's to early 90's. Every musical choice from here is great, leaving the watcher and listner with no doubts that MMEB is among the best in their category. All the footages are good, with their famouses cartoons from the late'70's and early '80's when almost on every concert the cartoons were running in the back of the stage - for ex Fritz The Blank. Now the live cuts are excellent specially the one's from Sweden from 1973 where all the members was in full potential creativity delivering some outstanding moments, like Black & Blue. All the rest are very strong compositions witch I know them from the original albums and enjoying aswell in this versions. I love all the momets this DVD have , even those from the mid 80's where Mann's music capture a new grounds to a more popish side. Every period has something to offer and I'm very glad I have this one in my collection, and one of the best DVD I have and saw. Something bothering me, why there isn't anything from The good earth and Nightingale & bombers periods, I consider that period to be the peak of band's career. Strange not a single tune or a live footage from that period. I wonder if Manfred Mann considered that period not good enough for the band to leave those excellent albums behind and not included here????. Anyway a great document to watch, not to forget the booklet of DVD has 16 pages about every song and his story, the line up is aswell on every track.Si this DVD is for every serious prog listner, , 4 star for sure. Recommnded
