Former 'Yes' keyboardist Rick Wakeman performs live on his 2000 tour of the UK. Tracks include 'Guinevere', 'Lancelot', 'Dance of a Thousand Lights' and 'Eleanor Rigby'.
Although Rick Wakeman has recorded an enormous number of solo projects, this multi-region DVD-plus-CD set Rick Wakeman 2000--Live in Concert must surely be the best in terms of sheer value, quite apart from the fact that the performance is very good. Even long after the glory days of Yes and his grandiose solo albums of the 1970s Wakeman, the inventor of rock keyboards (before him there were pianists and organists, while after him there were programmers), remains a consummate performer. Taken from one of his one-man shows, in which he mixes musical items from his entire career with some expertly delivered anecdotes, there's something in this bumper parcel to please every fan. The dozen tracks on the DVD include extracts from his solo albums Henry, Arthur, Journey, some Yes music, the brilliant (and hilarious) "Nursery Rhyme Concerto" and much more, while his story about the theatre organ in Seattle is alone worth the price of the set. The extra audio CD features all the music on the show, while the DVD itself has six extra audio-only tracks plus a very funny biography and a photo gallery. --Roger Thomas

One thing the DVD gives you that you don't get at the concert is a good view of Rick's 'fingers in action'. Surely there can't be a faster or more talented keyboard player in the world ? I was able to listen to the DVD with the surround sound on and I found the quality excellent. Although I am a Wakeman fan, I don't automatically like all of his stuff, however,if you've never been to a Rick Wakeman Concert, I recommend that you buy this DVD and see what you've been missing. With a CD of the music thrown in for good measure, this is a bargain purchase !
If you like Rick's music and have enjoyed his warm and funny appearances in various interviews on TV, then this DVD+CD is WELL worth buying.
Five stars plus.

This is one of Rick Wakeman's quieter live outings. I didn't actually see the 2000 gig live but did see a few around that period and they really were marvellous. Read morePublished on 28 May 2009 by C. JONES
