Ahhhh, this really brings back the memories! Fond recollections of the Tea Party playing several smokin' concerts in very small clubs here in Burlington, Vermont (in fact, their debut album "Splendor Solis" was recorded right here!) I always thought they were an absolutely killer band live, but all along, there was no live album or video concert to remember them by - until now! In front of a packed Aussie audience of rabid fans, the band rips through a selection of songs from just about every phase of their career, and even includes a nice acoustic-based set. But as I've wondered many times before, why these guys never took over the world is beyond me! A combination of Led Zep crunch (along with a similar bent towards Middle-Eastern textures) with a singer who more often than not sounds a lot like Jim Morrison fronting a hard-rock band, these guys have been making great albums, and performing kickass shows for years, yet have remained relatively unknown enough to lead them to their inevitable break-up a few years ago. While several of Jeff Martin's solo outings have been good-to-great, this set really reminded me of how perfect the three of these guys are together - and how they haven't missed a step in-between (besides, few threesomes could ever pull off what they do in concert: just check out Stuart Chatwood's dexterity on bass guitar, keyboards and bass pedals!) Martin announces that they are "back for good", and that is GREAT news. Maybe now, the world will discover that they have simply been a bit ahead of their time! My only (slight) complaint would be: too much of Martin's between-song banter - but that's not enough to detract from anything here. If you miss big, creative, 70's-based riffs and powerful vocals, these guys are the real deal: live (as on this DVD, which by the way, is great in sound and picture), or in the studio.
