3.8 out of 5 stars

This is a great DVD with Thompson and his band on peak form. Great track selection and good camera work make for a pretty much perfect live DVD.
The DVD extras are also pretty good, including some excellent clips from the "Across a Crowded Room" tour with Clive Gregson and Christine Collister in the band.
All in all this is a great DVD for Thompson afficionados.

The opening song on this, Tear Stained Letter completely blows me away every time....and the rest of the dvd is just as riveting. If you are at all interested in Richard Thompson and his music, owning this dvd is mandatory...Oh yeah the extras are fantastic too.

I don't know if the fault is in the production of the dvd, or if is is the
recording. Anyway the sound varies, it disappear in parts of the
dvd, and in other parts its ok. Hope the fault lies in the production
and not in the quality of the recording.

Fathers Day 2005. Thanx Kids!
The overall sound is very impressive and gives the impression of being there with all the feel of a medium - large hall gig and the mix is excellent.
The band, Rory McFarlane (Bass) quiet and unassuming but "there". Earl Harvin (drums/percussion)is mezmerising-I caught this show in Cardiff and was equally blown away then. Pete Zorn is a more than adequate foil for the man himself and really lets rip during his instrumental break in "Shoot Out The Lights"-Manic but extremely entertaining. RT himself is nothing less than sublime equally adept on both electric and acoustic. For the guitarists out there (me included) you'll find plenty of close up shots of those long, nimble fingers to help you learn (if you can) from the master.
The set list provides an insight into what the man is about-As I said previously, I was fortunate enough to catch the show live (the tour happened just after the release of "Kit Bag") and came away from the gig more than happy with the mix of old and new.
And if that isn't enough we also have the bonus selection! Taken from the archives from the likes of of "Whistle Test" and the "Across a Crowded Room" "rockumentary" that I remember watching late at night on Channel 4 and which probably got me into Richard Thompson.
It's difficult to pick the best bits because it is SOooo good although for me the DVD would be worth the money if it just included "Al Bowlly's in Heaven" and the beautiful "Persuasion" the latter being lifted from the Live in Texas DVD which has just been brought out and as such is a very clever marketing ploy - ie once you see/hear it you'll want to rush out and buy that one too. I did.

l got the early through Beesweb because i couldnt wait, and its absolutely fantastic! Great set list, great performances, plus a great on stage presence! The young guy on drums is a legend, playing his heart out like the rest of the band. OK we dont have danny on bass, but Rory is definately a damn good second!
Favourite bits:
Can't Win
1952 VBL
Outside of the Inside
'Sting' gag.
What also amazes me, if l have 'ducknapped!' which was recorded on the same tour, but the performances are totally different. The amount of variation is superb, buy it!
ps, the extras are pretty sweet too!
