The whole package is top notch. The concert picture is brilliant given 1987 standards. The reason for this entry is to note that the audio remastering is very special on both cd and dvd. I don't know what the original sounded like but this is fantastic giving real depth and scope to the sound, and really bringing the different individual performances and styles to life, absorbing the listener into the music. I can't see from the booklet who mastered this edition, but I wish they'd had a hand in many of the cd's I've bought over recent years.
This piece will appeal to listeners who appreciate great compositions, cleverly arranged, and performed by artists and musicians of the highest calibre who sound and look as if they really mean it.
If you've never heard this album before - get it, listen to it though a couple of times and I guarantee you will be impressed. I'm just so pleased that it's out again - and I really hope it's more of a success this time round. It deserves to be!
I saw the shortlived full length London West End theatre show (not the hour long concert version) which was prematurely closed due to idiot critics who don't know a great thing when they see it. I asked at the box office for the best single seat they had and found myself sat next to the master, Mike Batt himself. I was so in awe, I was unable to strike up an appreciative conversation - something I regret to this day. A great show - and a great album. I have the concert on video already which I recorded off the tv when broadcast by the BBC. If only the full length show were available (Mike Batt has said he wants to record the full length show which has more songs and a tighter plot - one day) but this album/concert bundle is certainly worth having.
HE NEVER SEEMS TO HAVE RECIEVED THE CREDIT HE DESERVES,I LOVED THE STAGING OF THIS ALBUM,AND WAS MYSTIFIED BY THE SLATING OF THE CRITICS.SOME OF WHOM TOLD DOWNRIGHT LIES.."THE AUDIENCE SAT IT STUNNED SILENCE" WRONG!!! THE AUDIENCE WERE ON THEIR FEET...THATS IN THE PAST. THIS PACKAGE IS REAL VALUE FOR MONEY,WITH THE ORIGINAL C.D. PLUS A DVD OF THE ALBERT HALL CONCERT.TRUE THE QUALITY OF THE DVD IS 1980s
BUT IT IS STILL ENJOYABLE.

We saw the concert live , on TV , many years ago and it was just as good seeing it again. It's not dated at all. Plus the bonus CD of just the music was great. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Amazon Customer
