Product Description

Product Description

A special edition of the BBC show 'Later with Jools Holland' featuring the Mancunian popsters M People. Backed by Jools, a mini orchestra and a Gospel choir, they perform a string of their best known songs in front of a specially invited audience. Tracks include 'One Night in Heaven', 'Movin' On Up' and 'Angel Street'.

From Amazon.co.uk

One Night in Heaven, or--to be precise--one night in the studio on "Later with Jools Holland". Quite frankly, ever since this board-sweeping performance by Manchester's gift to Britfunk there's been little to compete with it in terms of sheer "must-see-againness", and now here it is, the kind of stuff the crisp'n'clean DVD format was surely invented for. All the hits are here, including the title track, "Angel Street" and "Movin' On Up", while the stonking percussion break in "Sight for Sore Eyes" is reason enough in itself to buy this item. The overall standards here are high enough to allow us to forgive the inclusion of the ghastly-but-inevitable "Search for the Hero", buried as it is in the no-person's land between the middle of the concert and the finale. There's also a choir and a suitably zippy string section (dimly referred to as a "mini-orchestra" on the cover blurb), and Holland gets to join in a couple of times, perfectly at ease as ever. --Roger Thomas --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
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.

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.

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.
