It's great having this DVD as a souvenir of the band playing live, but it doesn't really do them justice. The Troggs have been on the live circuit and releasing records for over 43 years now, so there should to be at least a couple of meaty documentaries and several live DVD's available by now. The Troggs are legends, and a 10 song 45 minute set, a 16 minute interview with Reg Presley and a Biography is only dipping a toe into the massive ocean that is The Troggs. What about interviews with the rest of the band? They too have their story to tell.
This is a small step in an effort to fill the yawning void of absolutely NO Troggs DVD's at all, and Angel Air must be applauded for at least documenting the band in some small way. But The Troggs deserve better, and someone should get on with it while they're still around to be able to do it!
However, this DVD does show the power of The Troggs live, and whilst their ballads may seduce the audience, their rockers, like the 1966 rocket-fuelled 'Wild Thing' B-side, 'From Home' and also a later track, 'Feels Like A Woman,' ably demonstrate how the band thoroughly enjoy being let off the leash. A full stage set would have allowed for more Trogglodite anarchy, and original guitarist, Chris Britton, plainly enjoys himself on these up-tempo tracks moreso than the others.
Yes, this is nice as a testament to the wonderful Troggs, but again, they deserve better, their dues were paid donkey's years ago, and Legends need documenting and I hope someone takes up the challenge.
