I've been watching this DVD continuously for the last few days, much of the time with tears streaming down my face, for obvious reasons. It's a DVD all about ships, really - relationship, craftsmanship, musicianship, friendship: the empathy between Forster and McLennan, particularly in the Acoustic Stories section where they chat about, joke about and discuss the history of their partnership, is utterly compelling and terribly moving, their guitar and vocal interplay through a succession of marvellous songs quite simply one of the most enriching musical and lyrical experiences I have ever been privileged to watch. The dynamic of their rapport, which of course also permeates the songs, is that electric contrast between tall, laconic, ironic Forster - bearing a startling resemblance to Peter Cook now - and the slighter, gentler, more romantic McLennan - but it's the fusion of these qualities that really comes across in these performances: play Too Much of One Thing, Dive for Your Memory, Finding You, watch their smiles and glances as they play off and through each other, listen to the delicacy of the guitar work, hear a real dialogue between two great songwriters, two fascinating men; witness a marvellous relationship full of love and respect. Sit back after a song like Forster does, with a huge sigh of "Beautiful!" Truly.
