A superb collection of 14 M People favourites, recorded live at the BBC in 1998 for 'Later with Jools Holland', this concert is a must have for any fan of the band or just live music in general.
For those familiar the 'Later' series it will go without saying that the whole thing is brilliantly produced and engineered (presented here in Dolby Digital, the sound quality is fantastic) but it is the musicianship that really sets this recording apart. I own several M-People albums and most of the tracks on this DVD far superior to the studio versions, thanks to the live energy and talent of the band and supporting cast.
Paul Birchall and Jools Holland deliver some sparkling piano breaks, Shovell gives it everything he's got from behind his bongoes (he seems to have been allocated his own corner of the studio, a veritable percussion-playground) and Snake Davis, surely the fifth M-person, shines on saxophone and also directs the string section. Heather Small's lead vocals are as rich and powerful as ever and accompanied not just by the usual backing crew but a full-blown gospel choir.
To pick one outstanding track almost seems unfair, but for me the specially extended, gospel-charged version of 'Just For You' has to be a favourite.
This is one DVD I don't think I'll ever tire of.

I only fairly recently heard "One Night In Heaven" on an Italian Radio Station. I'm an American living and working in Italy and have only been in the country for a few weeks. American radio stations rarely play this kind of sound. I love it -- couldn't possibly sit still and listen...

What a performance by Heather Small and M People kick off your shoes, move the coffee table and get ready to dance. Following Jeremy Spake lead!
If you only buy one DVD this year make sure it's this one, and have many nights in heaven.
Heather Browns voice mixed with some awesome percussion, saxophone playing and backing singers is a pure velvet rhythm.
What are you waiting for?

Groups / singers are only good live if you know that they will give a top performance. The miming girl/boy bands out there that kids (parents) pay top dollar to go to see, do not fall into this category.
This DVD does not fail one bit, Heather Small's punchy voice dominates the show. Ideal purchase for spending the night indoors, with the 'surround sound' on and the volume at 11, a glass of red wine and crisps at hand. Time and again watch the performance and you won't be bored.The quality of the DVD is good, the lighting and sound spot on, you will not be disappointed with the purchase.

I went to see M People live in London, Drury Lane, this DvD recreats the wonderful sound of this very sexy lady. Great balance and tone along with the master of keyboards Mr Holland. If you like Heather then you simply must buy this.

Heather Small and the band at their most soulful. They all seem to enjoy the performance even though some of the audience seem somewhat less than impressed. Thoroughly enjoyable watching and listening to their classic hits.
