NOW AVAILABLE ON DVD!
Front Row Moonlight is an outstanding video performance from John Stewart. Filmed in September, 2000 at the Turf Inn, Dalry, Scotland, FRM gives you a front row seat at a concert featuring just John and his guitar. John's performance, the filming, editing and sound quality all come together perfectly to make this video a gem. John gives an emotional delivery creating an intense and intimate experience.
For almost 90 minutes you will believe you are front and center at one of John's finest performances. If you seldom see John in concert you'll want "Front Row Moonlight"; if you often see John in concert you'll treasure this tape as a lasting reminder of the pleasure of the shows.
As an added bonus the video includes several priceless candids: John being interviewed by radio BBC, John sightseeing with friends, John stretched out reading and relaxing in a hotel lobby, and, one truly magical instrumental interlude in a York dressing room. And the song list features the previously unreleased "Fire on the Starborne Chariot", one of the newest and most passionate of John's compositions.
This new DVD version looks terrific. The original concert tape was recorded digitally and then
mass-duped to VHS. There was a lot lost during the conversion. The sound and
picture quality of the DVD is more like the original tape. The caveat is
that the DVD has only 15 'chapters' instead of one per song. You can search with no problem but you can't random access a song.
So this DVD will give you the absolute best quality sound and video of John's performance.
