Some Good Moments in this Concert, 2 August 2001
Author: GrantCAGE from Liverpool, ENGLAND

I got this on video a few weeks ago. It's the PRINCE'S TRUST ROCK GALA 1988 CONCERT at the Royal Albert Hall from June '88. The concert kicks off with Wet Wet Wet doing 'Sweet Little Mystery' and then 'Twist And Shout' which is so so. Soon after gracing the stage is Midge Ure's All Star Band (which includes Phil Collins and Brian May). The songs included here are DANCING WITH TEARS IN MY EYES, WHAT IS LOVE? (Howard Jones), NEVER GONNA GIVE YOU UP (Rick Astley), WONDERFUL LIFE (Colin Vearncombe), THE LETTER (Joe Cocker), YOU WIN AGAIN (Bee Gees) and SLEDGEHAMMER (Peter Gabriel). Most of these performances are pretty good. Then arriving on the stage is THE ERIC CLAPTON ALL-STARS featuring EC, Mark Knopfler, Nathan East, Elton John etc. Unfortunately, the first song MONEY FOR NOTHING sounds unavoidably FLAT AND TINNY due to Knopfler's guitar playing and tone. This let's the concert down a bit. Then Elton John sing I DON'T WANNA GO ON WITH YOU LIKE THAT with Clapton's solos ringing out nicely. After that, Eric Clapton probably steals the show with LAYLA.....AND IT ROCKS! After that all of the artists get together to sing The Beatle's WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS. Overall, this music concert video has some great moments, but it also has so very patchy moments (Stand up Rick Astley, Joe Cocker and Mark Knopfler! lol). But some of the high points are prominent too with some classic songs being played live and the audience appear to be having a good time. THIS CONCERT IS NOT ALL IT COULD BE, BUT IF YOUR INTO THESE ARTISTS I'D SUGGEST CHECKING THIS OUT. 7/10
