Perfect document of pop music's incorporation into the establishment
6 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

Whether or not you enjoy the performances on this DVD (I liked some, disliked others), it's a wonderful document of how pop and rock music became part of the UK establishment. Particularly illustrative of this process are, I think: [1] Brian May's hilariously bloated pomp-rock rendition of "God Save The Queen" from the ramparts of Buckingham Palace, complete with massive symphonic-size orchestra and a final cadenza milking both an interrupted cadence on bVI and repeated V-I "classical" cadences; [2] the appearance of what seems like a sheepishly grateful rather than uncomfortably anarchic Ozzie Osbourne; [3] Sir Paul McCartney's embarrassing churning out of "Hey Jude" as an audience-participation singalong, complete with the knight's predictably "spontaneous" "yeah" and "one more time" interjections. At least Ray Davis (Kinks) seems to retain an impish edge in "Lola" and there is something sadly moving about Brian Wilson's almost zombie-like performance: times, moods and attitudes that once were but are no more.
