Product Description

Archive footage of the British prog rock band in session. Renowned for their eclectic and experimental style, Curved Air were successful in the 1970s and are remembered as one of the first rock bands to incorporate the violin into their music. This release draws on three separate recordings of the band playing in the 1970s and includes two versions of the song 'Back Street Luv'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Curved Air 20 Mar 2012
As a long time aficionado of the Progrock band, Curved Air, I am mightily relieved to report that my eye-teeth are all but safe. No longer are they under threat of exchange for a sample of dodgy live concert footage from their peak period between 1970 and 1972 as freshly arrived from a well known on-line retailer is a new DVD; `Curved Air - The Lost Broadcasts'.

As far as I am aware, this is one of only two videos in existence which captures them during their golden period even if it is not real concert footage and it has its own idiosyncrasies. The good news is that the two sessions on this disk, recorded in March and September 1971 for the German TV programme, Beat Club, comprise a total of five songs from `Air Conditioning' and `Second Album' including `Back Street Luv' and the epic `Piece of Mind'. The bad news is that for the second broadcast, session drummer Barry deSouza fills in for regular drummer, Florian Pilkington-Miksa and the obsession with weird TV effects (1971-stylee) with blue screen backdrops and the like, is mildly irritating. However, the only other video from this period, from a 1972 Belgian TV programme, suffers even more from irritating effects and cutaways, so mustn't grumble.

So in the scheme of things, this is gold dust. Looking distressingly young - they were all about 22 at the time - the band demonstrates just what a talented lot they were. The two aspects that drew me to them in the first place are still mesmerisingly magnetic. First, the combination of Darryl Way's electric violin and Francis Monkman's (at the time) groundbreaking use of the early VCS3 synthesiser still has an oddness about it that time has not diminished.

4.0 out of 5 stars Curved air - lost broadcasts 4 Aug 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This culled from a couple of German TV shows.A must for all fans of C.A. but first track should be watched with eyes tightly closed due to German idea of "psychedelic" overlay which ruins the performance visually.Look out for the "Art Rock" box,possibly the only other record of C.A. on video.

Poor quality in both the recording of the DVD and the actual recorded content.
Expected more live footage from concerts.
