At the end of March 2011, Bill Nelson and the Gentlemen Rocketeers, along with one hundred plus guests, populated Studio A at Metropolis, West London, for a dynamite concert reminiscent of the Marquee club in its heyday. A blistering fourteen song set from the band, which covers much of Bill’s career to date, was the result. We’re delighted to present that set here on both CD and DVD, together with an interview with Bill and a sublime four track solo set as DVD extras.
75 minutes of Deep Purple live; includes 'Smoke on the Water' 'Black Night' & 'Hush'. Recorded at Wacken Festival 2013, Tokyo 2014 & Geavle, Sweden in 2013 (11 tracks). Deep Purple are one of the most influential British rock bands of all time. With 120 million albums sold worldwide, they are also one of the most loved British bands ever.

"Classic Songs Live in Concerts" has all of Deep Purple's biggest hits ("Smoke On The Water", "Space Truckin'", "Highway Star" and many more) recorded live in Tokyo, Wacken and Sweden in 2013 and 2014.
This is the Paris Theater concert from 1973 near the end of the bands existence. They are having a very good time in front of a very appreciative audience with Chappo snarling and howling, grunting bass, slicing guitar, wailing organ/synth and rocking drums. The sound - even though mono - is really solid and soundboard clear. It's a wall of sound type mix but everything is quite clear within it. It beats some of the live bonus cuts on some of the individual album releases by miles! If you have all three of the BBC series already - you will find this a very enjoyable and glad addition as the arrangements and sheer drive are unique among the other BBC series. It is a massive rockin testament to the band.
Looking back through the pages of '80s metal mags at photographs of Scott Ian wearing Bermuda jams with "Not" shaved into his chest hair (Hit Parader or Metal Circus, anyone?), it's easy to forget that, on-stage, Anthrax were a serious force to be reckoned with. Caught in a Mosh: BBC Live in Concert relives the experience of hearing the thrash megaliths perform in their heyday with two shows from 1987, just on the heels of their first gold record, Among the Living…
Secrets of Angels Live in Concert (DVD) was filmed at The O2 Academy Islington London on June 25th 2016. Features the whole of the award-winning Secrets of Angels album including the 20 minute epic title track and previously unreleased track Twist of Fate.
This performance was recorded in Sydney in 1982 during a tour of Australia, when he was at or close to his vocal peak. The present disc was released to coincide with his recent tour of Australia. The concert takes the form of Rebroff singing, chatting to the audience, and also disappearing offstage a couple of times while a violinist and then two guitarists perform solos. Rebroff dresses in traditional Cossack costume complete with fur hat and coat. His over-the-top performance style has been accurately described as "kitsch", which will be off-putting for many viewers
Reissue with DSD remastering. A real lost treasure from trumpeter Terumasa Hino – a warm and wonderful live set, and one that's neither too free, nor too smooth – just perfectly set up right down the middle to open up on these beautiful long performances! The lineup is all Japanese – a great array of players that includes Shigeharu Mukai on trombone, Hideo Miyata on tenor, Sadao Watanabe on alto sax, Motohiko Hino on drums, and Fumio Itabashi on Fender Rhodes – part of a slightly larger ensemble who can be tight at times, but still allow plenty of room for open freedom on the solos. Hino's only part of the picture, as the other soloists get in some great space too – and the set includes the 23 minute groover "Logical Mystery", the long soulful original "In The Darkness", and a sweet mellow take on "Round Midnight".
