This DVD performance by The Caped One is easily the best live recording I have ever seen. At the young age of "almost" 60, this guy can still rock and hold the audience in the palm of his hand. Backed by the English Rock Ensemble (including son, Adam), the English Chamber Choir, Orchestra Europa and narration by Brian Blessed, this was truly epic. Oh, did I forget to mention that this was performed outside of the Hampton Court Palace. Talk about the perfect background! I have "6 Wives" on LP, Stereo CD and Quad CD. This disc puts all the others to shame. Rick expands on all the themes and adds 3 more that only enhance the originals. The DVD is so overwhelming. On a wide-screen TV with surround sound cranked way up, I was blown away. I bought the Blu-ray disc as well but don't have a player...yet. I just wanted to have it on hand when I do make the purchase! I have read some negative things about the DVD, but I haven't found anything wrong. Of course, being a devout fan of Mr. Wakeman's for some 30 years might make me a little biased. But, there are worse things to be besides being a Rick Wakeman fanatic!!! My suggestion...BUY THIS DVD and CD. You won't be disappointed!!!
