AllMusic Review by

Some 26 minutes of this 50-minute video, which compiles appearances by Roxy Music and T-Rex, is given over to Bryan Ferry and company, including a couple of different appearances on Beat Club/MusikLaden. It's some of the best 30 minutes of progressive rock that one is ever likely to see, showing the band blazing away with white-hot ferocity. Ferry is the focus of a good portion of the video, but Brian Eno, Paul Thompson, Phil Manzanera, and Andy Mackay all get some serious screen time, too. The camera work is excellent -- the shots are seldom repetitive (though we could've done with one or two fewer tight close-ups of Ferry) -- and the sound, remastered from the original live two-track recording, glitters.
