Wonderful Electric indeed
on 10 April 2012
This 2004 2 DVD set features 2 concerts; at Somerset House in 2003 and Shepherds Bush Empire in 2001 as well as some documentaries. Songs are drawn from the Felt Mountain and Black Cherry CDs.
Having had Felt Mountain since it came out but eschewing Black Cherry as a bit too pop with a few too many 'borrowed' riffs, this set provides illuminating live versions of both - they are both particularly good concerts; her voice is amazing - including the bits I'd thought were synthesizers - and musicians excellent, the combination of strings and electronics being most effective.
In 5.1 surround - the main reason to travel back to this music - the whole experience is splendid, and for the £7.99 I paid, I think good value - less than the CD at the time.
If you've come to Goldfrapp through her later music this will be a worthwhile trip to where it began.
