Classic Rock Legends, 2001

Central Music's "Bedrock" series (so-called as it was designed for late-night viewing) was intended as a showcase for the best of classic British rock music. Some of the shows were released on CD and video, ususally by the artists themselves or the labels associated with them. Now Classic Rock Legends have gathered these together for a major series covering a range of key bands.

The Strawbs' concert in this series (previously released on VHS as Greatest Hits Live) and on CD, also as Greatest Hits Live) was a 1990 gig, featuring the line up with Dave Cousins, Tony Hooper, Brian Willoughby, Hud, Rod Demick and Chris Parren (which played for about 7 years from 1986 through to 1992) and the concert is of excellent quality. The DVD menu allows you to play the concert all the way through, to jump to any track and also includes a bonus feature "The Rock Vault", a series of samples from other DVDs in the series.

All the titles in the series feature artwork by Roger Dean, and according to the booklet, it appears that the show is available on DVD and VHS formats, each in PAL and NTSC formats.
