Just yesterday I finally bought the Video-tape 'KNEBWORTH-The Event Volume 3'.
I waited a long time to buy this stuff, because there is only a little PF
on it. Nevertheless, it was woth the 30DM ($20)! I have never seen any
reference to this video on eclipse/echoes, so I will give a short review:
KNEBWORTH The Event Volume 3
CMP 6008 (VHS)
Robert Plant Total 18:51
Genesis Total 26:24
Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Parts1-5) 10:40
Run Like Hell 6:05
The concert took place on June 30th, 1990 at Knebworth, Hertfordshire.
Notice that, in contrast to the double CD 'KNEBWORTH', the first song
is SOYCD and not 'Comfortably Numb'!
What can I say, I am very happy to own this one. What a pity that they
put only 16 minutes PF on the video ... there is much space free at the
Average sound quality (for an official realease). The songs on
CD are mastered with much more care.
Great! On SOYCD the camera concentrates on the musicians, so
you are able to see our heroes in fantastic details. (What a
pity, David seems to become rounder and rounder.. 8^( )
On RLH, the camera concentrates on the light and lasereffects.
You can see _much_ better what's going on than on the 'Delicate
Sound of Thunder'-video! Some nice views of the whole area
complete the image of how great the show is.
Overall, no effect-hashing cuts, no 'guessing' what you see.
David looks very bored while playing SOYCD...
RLH has all nearly all effects from the 'regular' tour. Lasers,
spots and even the circular screen! My favourite version of RLH.
