Watched over the weekend. It was a bit meh for me to be honest and a bit cliched. Loved bananaz. Maybe it'll get better for me on second watch.

Yes, just watched and pretty average. Got bored fairly quickly and was just left wondering....why?

No real narrative, some stuff hard to hear and nothing about the tour struck me as particularly interesting.

Some good images and flashes of live stuff but it struck me as a bit directionless.

Got round to watching this. Interesting stuff of course but pretty average and would be impenetrable to the casual viewer. Like a few folk have said - why? Was this to give Denholm Hewett a start, or something good on his CV?

It's a bit better around the NOW now sessions because there's a small indication of the creative process.

Who is he guy who looks a bit like Trevor Nelson who is in a lot of it? Genuinely don't recognise him.

Could it be Karl Vanden Bossche, the percussionist? (Also for Magic Whip Tour or TGTBTQ)
