    Moody Blues

    Year: 1990

    Runtime: 55 min

    The Moody Blues were formed in Birmingham in the early sixties and were immediately successful, going to No.1 with their second single Go Now. As the sixties progressed, their music evolved into a more lush, psychedelic sound, and with the arrival of Justin Hayward and John Lodge, the classic line-up came together and produced the masterpiece Days Of Future Passed, which contained their classic hit singles Nights In White Satin and Tuesday Afternoon. The resulting level of success propelled the band forward. This show from July 1991 is the band's only Montreux appearance to date. With a line-up including John Lodge, Justin Hayward, Ray Thomas, and Graeme Edge, the exceptional performance includes classics such as Gemini Dream, Question, Isn't Life Strange, I'm Just A Singer (In A Rock And Roll Band), Your Wildest Dreams and of course, Nights In White Satin.

    Runtime: 58 min

    Yes are one of the most innovative and successful rock bands of all time with a career that now spans five decades. In 2003 the band made their first appearance at the Montreux Festival, despite having a long association with the town itself (they recorded there frequently in the seventies). It was a triumphant night and is regarded by both the band members and fans as probably the finest Yes gig ever to be filmed. It has been much in demand and is now finally cleared for release.

  • Live 30th Anniversary Concert

    Wishbone Ash

    Year: 1999

    Runtime: 1 hr 36 min

    The 30-year history of Wishbone Ash has hardly been smooth, with numerous personnel changes and gradually fading popularity since the band's most acclaimed album, Argus, was released in 1972. What you'll witness here, then, is an inspiring and altogether good-natured example of survival embodied by original Wishbone guitarist Andy Powell. Looking youthful at 50, his formerly long hair now shaved off altogether, Powell remains a virtuoso ax-man, matched by fellow ace Mark Birch (temporarily filling the shoes of the departed Ted Turner) to recreate Wishbone's signature twin-guitar sound. As the sole survivor of Wishbone's original lineup, Powell happily presides over the group's considerable legacy, epitomized here by outstanding performances of the Ash classics "Phoenix" and "Blowin' Free." The concert's a no-frills affair with an occasionally uneven mix, but the music comes through with clarity and gusto, reminding us that Wishbone Ash's unique blend of musicianship remains influential some three decades later.

  • Live and Wild in Preston

    The Troggs

    Year: 2001

    Runtime: 49 min

    The Troggs have a 36 year history and at a concert in Preston in the UK during spring 2002 they played to a sell out audience and in return performed a "Global Jukebox" of the majority of their worldwide hits. Wet Wet Wet covered their "Love Is All Around", taking it to number 1 in the UK charts for 15 weeks. Despite that success the band are wary of committing themselves to recording any new material and are even limiting the number of concert appearances they make in future. Reg said "I don't really enjoy too much touring so we are stopping doing long tours in the future". This film is a succinct collection of songs that provides a neat reminder of the very large part The Troggs played in developing the classic sixties sound.
