Have to disagree with one of the comments on here. Yeah, you probably can go on Youtube and search for a live set by Bonobo but this DVD offers more of a complete package. It's got engaging interviews with Bonobo and his collaborators, full and proper sound and is presented in a beautiful hard back photo book. You'd be missing the point a little just watch stuff on Youtube - it's like sitting at home in your back garden, in a tent with your headphones on and pretending you're at the festival….
It seems like the CD is falling steadily in popularity, inevitable once digital music on portable players sourced with online and computer based outlets. If anything, the vinyl LP is going the opposite direction with a recent resurgence. I think tactility is a factor of that, and that is exactly what you get here, in this package. The DVD / CD set is housed in a book sized high quality card case, I mean, basically it is a book, a book starting with a complete list of all the dates Green and his 15-piece live band performed on the tour, followed by photos from a few venues, fantastic photos, interspersed with the members of the band followed by a few pages of small candid, random (in the best way!) photos in montage. The foreword by Radio 6 Music's Gilles Peterson is a very good introduction, as he's a fan and knows Green well.
It's just a great way to present Bonobo, with the clean, ordered, utterly visual design of Green's previous album covers reflected here, it really is a design job well done, with quality photos, on quality thick stock paper and a solid feel to the whole product. There is also a credits page at the front and back, even listing the original support bands and everyone involved musically and behind the scenes.
The "classy" comment I made in the title encompasses the live performance too, which is lit fantastically with changing colour shades, smoke and just a great atmosphere, with the Pula Amphitheatre in Croatia adding to it. The musical performance is just special, with the talent of the band on full show, and the man himself, Green, on the electronics, with a couple of multi tasking turns on the bass guitar and keyboard too.Read more ›
Nevertheless, it's an excellent performance from Simon Green and Co, and the live renditions work magic on the excellent new material. It's very well shot too, though it does suffer a tad from having the picture cropped into a 2.35 ratio, like it's an epic movie or something. Look, it's not Indiana Jones. Having the crowd and top of the stage chopped off works against the live atmosphere and looks a bit silly. Still looks and sounds great, though.
So while the concert footage may be superb, the rest is disappointing...
The CD is a mess. Bizarrely, they didn't just present the main performance as audio. Instead, they shuffled the track order around, ditched some tracks and added others. That isn't necessarily a problem, were it not for the odd decision to include radio sessions peppered throughout. So the energy and ambience of the live concert is consistently interrupted by clean and crisp studio recordings that are so spotless that they may as well be album cuts. This makes for a patchy listen that feels weirdly cobbled-together.
The BOOK is a real non-event as well. Granted, the cover looks great and it does look nifty on the shelf. Beyond that... meh. The heavy paper certainly feels great and it looks deluxe... but there's little inside worth the tactility. The photos are incredibly dull; double-page spreads featuring band-members silhouetted against stage lights, the kind of standard workaday photos you get in gig articles.Read more ›
