This is a thoroughly enjoyable and well produced DVD with, considering the age of the footage, surprisingly good sound quality. Needless to say the musicianship of Rick, the band, vocals, choir and orchestra (except for the atrocious brass section) was brilliant! The renditions of Merlin and Anne Boleyn were a real highlight, and the hymn "The Day the Lord..." - Rick's lead-in and performance of that hymn always affects me personally more than any strictly sacred piece I know. The classical guitar is exquisite. I'd heard about the blow-up dinosaurs, but to see them in "action" made me laugh uncontrollably loudly. The "Lost Journey" documentary was real fun, as was the whole DVD.
