An energetic, powerful set from 1994, which sees the band deliver storming renditions of tracks from Pablo Honey and The Bends, as well as a couple of obscure classics. You is an explosive opener, Creep is toweringly anthemic, Vegetable is emotional. The band delivers phenomenal versions of previously unheard tracks from The Bends, including Bones, The Bends, Just, My Iron Lung and Street Spirit, after which the audience seems as blown away as we are on hearing those tracks today. Lost single Pop Is Dead rears its head for a raucous run-through, and one of the highlights of the set is an incendiary rendition of the classic B-Side Maquiladora, which makes the admittedly brilliant record version look decidedly old-school. Overall, the band delivers a record beating performance, with Jonny Greenwood's consistently startling guitar work and Thom Yorke's beautiful vocals leaving the viewer in awe. A rare gem, and a must for all fans of great live music.

This performance, surely one of their best of all time, captures the incredible energy which is formed when the five members play as one. Thom Yorke writhes and contorts with such intensity that it sums up all that is Radiohead. Ed thrashes around in his corner, while Jonny, his long brown hair swaying with every movement, leaps and bounds with each chorus. Meanwhile, Colin remains calm in the background, cooly and ably plucking his guitar, providing the steady rhythm for the others to follow. Phil, cleanly shaven as ever, holds the quintet together as they threaten to wildly burst. The playlist includes tracks from their first two albums, 'You, My Iron Lung, Prove Yourself, The Bends, Creep...' The irregular camera angles and the fantastic lighting combine to heighten the experience. This is a video you need in your collection, my only criticism is that it has to end. You`ll be shouting 'More, More!' along with the crowd.

After picking up The Bends and OK Computer, I was keen to get my hands on some live Radiohead footage. I found The Astoria London Live to be a satisfying video, but somewhat outdated - it is by no means a representation of a modern day live show. I caught Radiohead live on the Amnesiac tour - they're a great live band, but their live show has matured greatly since the birth of the band in 1992. The video, filmed in 1994, showcases the band at their most raw and energetic, blasting out famous angst-ridden anthems from Pablo Honey and The Bends such as "Creep", "Stop Whispering", "The Bends" and "Just". While the video features blistering performances of such songs - with Jonny Greenwood's guitar work amazing as ever and Thom Yorke's vocals at their most powerful and accurate - these tracks are largely absent from Radiohead setlists today. As this is the only live material Radiohead have recorded for VHS, it's not a particularly good representation of the modern day live experience for newcomers to the band. Still, a great performance, but perhaps it's time for Radiohead Live - Number 2.

A video of a relatively early concert at the Astoria. They play all the greats, and at such a cheap price it's a bargain. Johnny Greenwood shows off his amazing talent many a time, and the whole band show why they still are the best British band of the moment. If like me you love live music, and love radiohead, this is the perfect video.

There is nothing you can fault with these lads, amazing songwriters, superb riffs and EXCELLENT live. This vid is a must for any radiohead fan, highlights include 'YOU', 'RIPCORD' and a superb live version of 'JUST'. Jonny Greenwood is amazing as ever and at such a low price is well worth it. The only live material radiohead recorded for VHS which is a shame cos there so good at it!
