Paul Weller on top form and on DVD,great stuff!,
This review is from: Paul Weller - Just A Dream [DVD] - Hardback Deluxe (DVD)
First I'm a huge PW fan,from The Jam,through Style Council, and through his solo albums ,his live shows he's one of the most original and talented rock artists of all time.This tremendous set shows why.This is superbly filmed by the Beeb (what else would you expect).Looks good sounds great,and above all PW whether doing material from the new album (then) or reworking other well known songs produces a fresh approach throughout.The band lead by surely one of Britain's finest guitarists Steve Craddock (Ocean Colour Scene) along with the others in Paul's new band really as said bring a new vibe to the songs,and guests like Little Barry and especially the wonderful fiddle playing of Eliza Carthy (just listen to Wild Wood) continues this wonderful recording.Add to that strings and a brass section and you have 90 mins. of Weller magic.But there's more great extras on the DVD plus great photos in the hardcover book style of the presentation box itself.If that's not enough an hour of the set at Brixton in November last year on CD.This is a truly stunning set for any true PW fan,but will be welcomed surely by any music lover that's ever listened to him.Shame you can't give more than 5 stars because this wonderful set is worth it.
