A Hungarian poet once said, “In dreams and in love there are no impossibilities.” With the release of last year’s Spirits of the Western Sky and now Spirits Live, it appears Justin is at long last giving flight to his own whims and fancies. And this new openness comes graced with charms and presented in the inimitable Hayward style. Here is an artist still coming into his own at age 67. The older songs played acoustically with softer edges are pleasing revelations. The new compositions ache with poignancy. On balance, Atlanta’s lovely Buckhead Theatre is the ideal venue for this performance of a classic and romantic set list, replete with raconteurial fillers, that transforms into a delicious parlor tête-à-tête. The intimacy carries over to the behind-the-scenes documentary filmed between Alexandria’s legendary Birchmere Music Hall and backstage snippets from Atlanta. The three bonus tracks score the segment to a tee. On The Road to Love could well have been the subtitle to last year’s album release; Suitcase from 1980’s Night Flight iterates that yen for the road, the journey still beckoning; and, Troubadour from 1996’s View From The Hill confesses to a taste for the gypsy life and free horizons. The Buckhead show is bookended, intro and reprise, by a lilting instrumental version of Captivated By You. Choice selections all around! This is a honey of a production. Laid bare and stripped down, the currency is art, lofty musicality, warmth, humility, with an appealing dash of humor. The busker at heart is pure genius.

Have had the studio CD since release but this Blueray DVD takes the enjoyment to another level with its acoustic delivery. Exceptional film quality and the sound mixing is among the best I have heard. Having watched the performance I have always tended to think any additional material is just filler but not in this case. It covers sound check and band interaction which gives another perspective on the life of a touring band, most enjoyable. A must for any Moodies fan and well worth adding to the collection if you have a passing interest.

we have been Moody Blues fans nearly all our lives it seems. Justin Hayward's voice is just as amazing as ever. The musicians around him are just incredible, Mike Dawes - what a find! Beautiful! We are going to see the Moodies concert next year. Cant wait. It would be fantastic if Justin brought The Spirits...Live concert to Britain soon. DVD well worth the money spent.

a brilliant blu ray disc. justin is on top form,he doesn,t put a foot wrong. there are moody blues classics and songs from justins solo album spirits of the western sky. the concert was recorded at the buckhead theatre in atlanta,a small cosy place which is perfect for the intermate feel of the concert. disc worth every penny.

Having seen the Moody Blues in UK concert 2015, went onto Amazon and saw this DVD and bought it, I have played it from start to finish many evenings, it is brilliant DVD filmed at 2 or 3 different smaller venues it has good mixture of Moodies hits and Justin Haywards solo music there is also a really good hour long extra film which follows the band through from hotel, tour bus, sound checks and band banter, this is really good DVD and must have for Moody Blues fans.
