Youtube now has the great feature of broadcasting whole concerts. This is a great way to watch all those rare concerts that are so hard to get on a dvd nowadays.
This is the concert Portishead will always be remembered by. Amazing arrangements with strings and a band that is playing as small as they can to make these complex layers work.Listen to all the tiny original sounds that this concert is filled with. The great guitarist Adrian Utley is a creative sound designer that makes this recording a listening journey.
Also notice the creative use of the turntablist (dj) as an instrument. No showing off here, just an extra percussive and melodic element. Brilliant!
