The Minack ( means A Rocky Place), an unusual, eerie setting for a concert but its a fantastic place. The acoustics are great and the backdrop is breathtaking. The eeriness is that one minute it can be sunny and whilst you are watching the show night descends without you being aware and when you look up its just well black, it really is a great setting. I unfortunately procrastinated and missed out in getting a ticket to this show though I have seen a number of other show there.
The DVD is a great tour of Seth's music including tracks from his four albums together with a track I have not heard before, Hearts and Minds" . I really love the vibrancy and energy that these guys put into their playing. I remember both Sean and Seth in their Equation days seeing them in Plymouth way back in `98 and remarked then on the incredible manner in how they played. They are both great craftsmen. With Ben and Simon the sound they create has a great quality to it and it transcends well on this DVD, listening its like being at the concert. The picture quality of the concert is exceptional together with panoramic seascapes of the surrounding area. I loved the sound of the sea crashing through the living room when I first put the DVD on, its an amazing sound and you just want to have the ability to apparate there.
This live DVD is a brilliant concert. Seth has a real buzz in playing to the crowd who pluck up the courage part way through to join him on centre stage and support and encourage him. If you enjoy his music this DVD will be a wise purchase. Its stonkingly good and I love it. Buy it, invite the neighbours in, play through surround sound, breath the music and have a great hoe-it-down - you will love it.
