The second stand-up performance of Richard Pryor filmed.
The DVD captures the live feel of the concert exceptionally well and Andy displays his virtuosity with the guitar which few people are aware of.His unique voice is as good as ever though obviously in a slightly lower key for the Amen Corner stuff these days. Chris Stainton on keyboards is magnificent as is Dave Bronze on bass both ex Clapton band members. Paul Beavis is the unknown quantity here and I can tell you he is one of the most animated drummers I have ever seen. He just loves what he is doing and shows it.
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…

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
