    Picked this up for £8.99 at Play - here's quick review ...
    This concert was filmed in 1996 and contains most of MK's CD "Golden Heart" with smatterings of Dire Straits and his older solo works including Cal & Local Hero
    I believe the concert has been available on VHS previously and I suspect is just a transfer of the VHS to DVD - That said although the DVD is Dolby Digital 2.0 only [no 5.1 of any flavour I'm afraid] the sound is pretty good - The picture is 4x3 full screen which is also a bit of a shame [I'd certainly have preferred 16/9] but it's crystal clear as you would expect from DVD
    The concert itself is excellent with MK on great form - His band includes usual stalwarts like Guy Fletcher & Paul Franklin along with a few "special guests" like Jools Holland & a fantastic guitar player called Sonny Landreth - MK uses a string quartet on quite a few tracks and a stellar selection of traditional Irish musicians on the many gaelic orientated tracks - the final "jam" on Gravy Train with Sonny Landreth is the highlight in my opinion ...

    Golden Heat was a cracking album. One more to add to my list to buy, methinks!
