Being a life long OMD fan, I looked at this with a sense of gimmie, gimmie, gimmie! Anything with the OMD brand will find a place in my collection. What is this unheralded release? It is a live recording (has the look of a concert shot for TV) that was done between the first and second OMD albums. The classic line up is still a bit off, with Martin Cooper not being with the band at this point, but his saxophone is very much heard! The quality of the CD and the DVD is quite good, and it is a very good performance. Now the bad news. It's only 22 minutes long. It really is over before you really get comfortable. And it looks like it wasn't edited down for time or for broadcast. It looks like the entire show, probably just a slot with a bunch of other artists. It is worth it? Wellll, don't spend too much on it.
This is a live performance from OMD's early days, which took place on 28th July 1980 at the newly refurbished Theatre Royal in Nottingham. The CD/DVD accurately portrays the ambience of the occasion, although with only the same 7 tracks on both, it is much shorter than the original performance, which is a great shame. I was fortunate enough to get my copy signed by Andy McCluskey recently, and he remembered the concert and wondered out loud why more songs hadn't been included on the album. The performance showcased songs from OMD's debut album, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, and previewed others from the at the time yet-to-be released second album, Organisation. The performance is raw and authentic, and Andy's voice is noticeably suffering by the end of the set. The DVD footage is well below HD quality, understandably from a recording made for TV from nearly 30 years ago. But if you want to know what it was like back then during the early years of OMD, this is an essential part of your collection.
The quality of this concert on dvd is amazing giving a real feel of being at a early concert with OMD in the early years - for me it was Eurphoric I was near dancing around the room singing along! The quality I think is exceptionally good as this was nearly 40 Years ago; but still sounds amazing! Definatly put it on your wish list if you like their music. Its one of my favourite LIVE dvd's giving a making you really feel like your at the concert!
A los interesados en ésta edición (CD+DVD ASIN B012BMOIY8) que sepáis que ambos discos tienen una duración de algo mas de 22 minutos y el mismo contenido en ambos. Éste concierto duró algo más de una hora, por lo que no está completo. Al margen de ésto como documento histórico de la banda es único.
