A terrific concert DVD paired with an amateurish soundtrack CD counterpart. The songs are top drawer, they're well arranged - if a little hi-tech - and the musicianship's faultless. A sparse, `unplugged' duet of `Stay on These Roads' is wonderful and showcases Moten Harket's beautiful, floating voice perfectly. Disappointingly, the band hardly interacts with each other at all and Morten seldom engages with the crowd spontaneously. It's also fair to say that the extras are slight and interviewer Ian Wright [not the former footballer] is hopelessly miscast. However the picture and audio quality are pristine and I can't recommend this DVD highly enough to a-ha fans. Conversely, the soundtrack CD is an unforgivable bodge. The 100 minutes concert is squeezed onto a 79 minutes medium by fading out the lengthier songs. I might accept such butchery on a supermarket CD of Showaddywaddy live at Scunthorpe Bingo Hall in 1974 but am staggered that a band of a-ha's standing allowed this CD to go to retail. Also, the songs have been re-sequenced for no good reason I can think of - unless the producers wanted to reinforce the impression that they had little respect for the music and buying public. I've edited my own CD sourced from the DVD audio by omitting the tracks before `Manhattan Skyline' - it's not ideal but makes for a much better listening experience. The dearth of a-ha films makes this an essential purchase. Let's hope `Rock In Rio II' and the Norwegian TV special for NRK in 1991 are given legitimate releases on DVD.
