This dvd consists of two BJH concerts from the eighties.'Glasnost' from Berlin in 1987 and 'Victims of Circumstance' recorded at Wembley in 1984.For the BJH fan these are a must as there is nothing else available of this magical and much under-rated band.
'Glasnost' contains ten tracks, with 'Victims Of Circumstance' coming in with eleven tracks. Some of the old favourites make an appearance on both, most notably 'Poor Mans Moody Blues' and 'Life Is For Living'.The classic 'Hymn' closes both concerts. The 'Victims Of Circumstance' concert contains four tracks off that album. Overall however this concert is partly spoiled by video footage of various horsemen/women in what appears to be arab garb inserted during the performance of the songs. The dvd loses one star for that but overall this is well worth having for the 'Glasnost' concert alone. Recommended!

After a couple of fairly disapointing DVD's I thought I would try one last BJH DVD.Its actually two seperate concerts.
Just fantastic, the sound clear as a bell, Life is for living and Hymn are two high points for me and had the windows shaking in their frames as I pushed the sound system up and up.
Wembley Arena 1984:
Good concert but oh my god they put those totally awfull "story videos" in amongst the concert video, still once again the sound is good and though a few of tracks are repeated from Berlin concert they are sufficientley different to include them, the two female backing singers dresses certainly date this concert!
If you are a BJH fan then buy this today, you will not be disappointed.

Well, as a long time fan of BJH that DVD makes me feel so good, a concert from the Victims Of Circumstance Tour and the live Glasnost tour (at one time on VHS) on the same package, with great sound mix and a poor booklet presentation. A must have for all BJH fans, Buy or die!!!!
