A double DVD with in an absolutely beautiful hard-cover package. From the starfield and the gold lettering on the cover, to the illustrations beautifully drawn by Heather on the inside; pure class, photo's and the story behind it.
A sell out at the Grand Opera House in York waited to acclaim the returning heroes
on a magical evening whick featured the full majesty of an extended Mostly Autumn
performance augmented by a string quartet, choir and multi-instrumentalist Troy Donockley.
This is a powerful film of a mayor event in the evolution of the band as Mostly Autumn unveiled the full Passengers audio visual stage presentation with a dazling new light show, special effects and film projection.
This band has often hailed as the new Pink Floyd and this powerful film of that special night at the Grand Opera House is an intruging pointer to juest how far this Mostly Autumn could go towards claiming that crow.
And i must admit if you close youre eyes and hear Bryan sing "There's no pain, you're receding, a distant ship...", it sounds very Gilmouresque. One of the few non-Floyd version that does the song justice.
