digger60 well what can I say. The rhythm section on this live performance is the best playing since I saw Yes play with Bruford and Squire in the early 70s.
I dont know whether Dave gregory is in the band for this performance but the songs are his legacy if hes not.
Favourite track is Hedgerow mainly due to the wonderful violin solo. 9 out of 10 for me.

snagadm Spectacular. I'm a fan of live albums anyway, but this one is over the top. BBT's best live album.

Peter Jones Big Big Train excel. It's what they do. If they weren't so incredibly perfect at doing these enormously overblown ideas, the shear progginess would be unbearable. But it's made beautiful by the musicianship. There isn't a moment where they drop away.

Rita K Drew How can one answer this question? Why do you love a painting or a book or a movie or a piece of music? Because it touches your soul in some meaningful way. I suppose that would be my answer.
Favorite track: Wassail.
