Yes it is warts and all, BUT and it's a big BUT - isn't it great to have the opportunity to watch ATF in concert time and time again? It's a great shame that it's so difficult (impossible?) to get video of 70s/80s ATF (classic ATF that it).
Anyway back to the DVD in question - it was great having just seen them live here in Stafford to see it replicated to a large degree on video (even moreso since I wasn't at Greenbelt). I don't think that any recording can truly recapture the atmosphere of a live gig, but video is as close as it gets - so it was great to share in the Greenbelt experience - you may have had to be there but if you weren't this is the next big thing.
Loved the interview and also the reflection.
Please do keep producing the stuff - would love to have DVD of Stafford especially the new One Rule with the percussionists - also the interviews as I was out of the room for chunks of them!!!
I don't think the DVD will convince anyone who is not familiar with ATF, but for fans it's a must have!
