Lost Broadcasts DVD
Review by G. W. Hill
There are good and bad sides to this DVD. The good side is that it’s cool to get this performances from such an important band. I mean, without The Move, there probably would never have been an Electric Light Orchestra. Some of the music here sounds a lot like ELO. The rest of this sounds more like pretty run of the mill psychedelia – not bad by any means, but not all that Earth shattering. This is pretty short and just consists of a hodge podge of performances (several versions of each song in some cases). It would be nice if they ran together differently. There are a number of bits that seem to fit together, like they are from one show. It would have made more sense to arrange the set that way – especially because some of these are in black and white. Still, this is a cool set and even if you have to skip around to watch it the way it should have been arranged, it’s good to have this.
