Format: DVD
i was lucky enough to attend this concert myself in december 2003
the dvd captures the atmosphere and ambience of that night perfectly, procol played a mixture of older classics and newer material, as for the dvd the sound quality and imagery is perfect, and watching this is almost like being there, the only weakness is the comments from the bar section of the dvd, i would have thought that some rehearsal footage or a interview with each band member would have filled this space better. 5 stars is deserved because the quality of the concert, the performance camera work and sound make bettering this almost impossible. we are now in a period where a concert usually contains, 500 lights a firework display backing singers and backing tapes, its a refreshing change to see a quality band entertaining the audience without any artificial additives

I bought this PAL DVD to send to someone in the UK, and to confirm that this is the package with the bonus CD - 11 audio tracks from the concert, with excellent sound quality and editing out of the audience noise.

This is one magnificent concert, wherein drummer Mark Brzezicki and guitarist Geoff Whitehorn, after more than 10 years with the group, (in my opinion) finally learned to do justice to Procol Harum's music. The musicianship throughout is outstanding, especially the interaction between Whitehorn and PH founding member, Hammond organist Matthew Fisher. The camera work is excellent, as befits the beautiful setting of the Union Chapel. The sound engineering is a revelation, and when played loud through a good sound system, this package (DVD and CD) comes very close to matching the HUGE Dynamic Procol Harum Live sound from its Classic period, something that none of the studio albums or previous concert recordings has ever achieved.

The classic tunes sound fantastic - this is my favorite rendition of "Conquistador" anywhere - and the songs from The Well's On Fire, their 2003 CD, have been incredibly improved, so much more ALIVE!, than on that album. Standouts are "An Old English Dream," "The Question" and especially "The Signature", the exciting Fisher-composed instrumental.

Though the Bonus CD is an excerpt of the entire concert, and I would have made a couple of substitutions, all the best tunes are there. I'm glad the CD has been made available because I'm planning on sending one to my local Classic Rock radio station and requesting some well-deserved airplay for "The Signature."

This band has stood the test of time, the vocals are still as good as the original sound but the musicianship is even better than the original. The mix of old songs and new met to give a very pleasurable experience, the sound quality and production were also first class. Top act can't wait to see them live if they do the rounds again.

As you may expect from Messrs Brooker and Co., a quality offering, well recorded and with beautiful acoustics. Procol trawl through some classics and Gary still gets the notes, while newer songs are surprisingly good. This band never produced anything but music and playing of the highest order and that is what you get here. There are over 20 songs and once again Keith Reid's odd words can send a shiver down the spine, as in Salty Dog.

Excellent new songs from the Well's On Fire showcase the excellent guiatar of Geoff Whitehorn, and Robin Trower himself would be proud of Whiskey Train.

But how good is Gary Brooker? That voice, that style - irreplacable.

Excellent value and an evening well-spent. Highly recommended.

i bought this dvd as soon as it was released. i don't have a 5.1 system and so i played it on the stereo setting. to my surprise, the resulting signal was mono. nobody else seemed to have noticed this but when i pointed it out to the manufacturer, they agreed there was a problem with my disc. however, mine cannot have been unique, as the company reissued the dvd, in a new package including a cd, a few months later. this is a fine concert and well worth having but if a basic stereo sound is important to you, you would be advised to buy the later version with the cd.

Format: DVD
Set in the beautiful, intimate surroundings of the Union Chapel, this is a high quality D.V.D. with excellent musicianship, perfect sound balance and sharp audio-visuals. This is one of our most under-rated and undiscovered bands, who most people only seem to know for 'Whiter Shade of Pale' but who have produced many great songs over the years.
The reason I docked it a star is because I thought Gary Brooker's voice is begining to show its age and I found some of the newer songs rather dull. But it has 'Conquistador'; 'Whaling Stories; 'Grand Hotel'; 'Homburg' and of course, everybodys favourite instrumental. Well worth buying
