Reviews

Barclay James Harvest formed in the summer of 1967. From the outset the band pioneered and experimented with new forms, going beyond the traditional guitar, bass and drums format to include woodwind, strings and brass, then acquiring a Mellotron to simulate the sound of an orchestra. This release captures them live at the Drury Lane in 1977. Tracks include: 'Child of the Universe', 'Rock and Roll Star', 'Hard Hearted Woman', 'Suicide?', 'Mockingbird', 'Polk Street Rag', 'Hymn', 'Crazy City', 'For No One' and 'The Great 1974 Mining Disaster'.

Format: DVD
This is a documentary DVD about Barclay James Harvest with interviews and songs like Child of the universe, Rock and roll star, Mocking bird etc as well as (part of ?) the Drury Lane Concert. The sound is awful. Even the worst vinyl bootleg recordings sound better than this one. I definitely regret having bought it although I have been a BJH fan for many years.
The complete title is "Barclay James Harvest - Caught Live" and it has a butterfly on the front cover.

I saw BJH in the 70's and they were great, and I had most of their albums on vinyl, so I was really pleased to see "caught live" on DVD in the shops, with the cover stating that their the footage had been "restored and re-mastered with enhanced sound and picture quality".
If that's true, I can only think that the original tapes must have been in really bad condition, or BJH have been standing in front of their speakers for too long because this is not good enough to be sold on DVD. You hardly ever get to hear Jon Lees' guitar, as the keyboards overwhelm everything. It sounds stodgy at best, and a lot of the time the sound seems to cut in and out, between awful and really awful.
If BJH really need money, I'd rather they sent me a mail asking for some, than trying to rip me off (a fan) with this rubbish.

When compared to the normal expectations of sound quality on DVD's, it has to be said that the audio is poor. But you don't buy it for that ! The footage is invaluable for the atmosphere of the 70's - both in the formal concert arena of Drury Lane and also the more typical small venues that the band played then. You see the equipment rolling in, the performances and the dresssing room wind-down. Its marvellous that the footage survived - and any real Barclay James Harvest fan will appreciate it.

BJH are one of the all-time great bands. Why did they allow such rubbish as this? The sound quality is appalling.
Let's hope the 25th Anniversary Concert does them justice.
