I am glad it did,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: This Happened: Live at the Scala [CD+DVD] (Audio CD)
Anyone who likes the music of Claudia Brucken, Onetwo, Act, Heaven 17, and, of course, Propaganda will want this DVD/CD package, which features the best known songs from all of these plus a few cover versions.
Special guests include Glenn Gregory, Andy Bell, Martyn Ware, Andrew Poppy and two of the original members of Propaganda, Susanne Freytag and Ralf Dorper.
The house band is excellent and so is the sound thanks to Paul Humphreys, who was the musical director, producer and did the mixing.
While the integrity of the original studio recordings is maintained (the Propaganda tracks actually include samples licensed from ZTT, we are told), there are some nice "live" touches like the brilliant guitar solo at the end of "Cloud 9".
The CD omits a few of the tracks featured on the DVD though in my opinion the best ones were included. The DVD extras are minimal but that didn't seem to matter - these days the music is what counts.
Everyone on stage seems pretty relaxed and generous. It appears as though both the musicians and the audience were having a great time that night.
