This DVD/CD package is great value and excellent throughout.The concert from Union Chapel features a relaxed yet tight band and the set list balances songs from the last album Tooth And Nail,a true return to form,with songs from Billy's long back catalogue. They fit together seemlessly.The chat between songs is not overdone and adds to the experience.
The Life is a Riot solo encore [Disappointingly not on the CD} is a treat,contrasting with the concert proper and showing Billy still has the fire of his youth.
The DVD extras feature some videos, more live tracks and a couple of interviews.This part is most notable for the appearance of Stewart Lee in a music video!
All in all a great purchase, thoughfully put together with great music and a warmth throughout.Recommended for all Billy Bragg and music fans.

A great DVD filled with songs from Bragg's 'Tooth And Nail' album as well as some old favourites. The band is excellent but Bragg also does some solo songs. The Second encore of 'Life's A Riot With Spy Vs Spy' is a great addition - this isn't on the accompanying CD as it was previously released on the 30th anniversary addition of the album. All in all a great set.

It is probably a good representation of what Billy Bragg is about for any newcomers with both old and new material. However, to me seeing Billy Bragg is just reassuring that he is keeping the faith (aptly in a chapel this time). The inclusion of a full rendition of Life's A Riot with Spy versus Spy takes me back to my teenage years and reminds me I'm getting on a bit but I can't really blame Billy for that. At a time when politicians say nothing that I can relate to it is good to still have Billy Bragg with lyrics that make sense to me. Ultimately, I accept it is not going to change the world but I can pretend once in a while.
