Magenta : Live at Real World (2CD/DVD)
2x CD and full concert DVD.
Saturday 21st November will linger long in the memories of around 60 lucky Magenta fans
as Peter Gabriel's Real World Studios near Bath, England, played host to the band's first live acoustic recording.
This is a record of this remarkable event. With Rob Reed making use of the Wooden Room's superb
acoustic piano, and the band supplemented by a string quartet and oboe player, Magenta present
beautiful new arrangements of many of its best known pieces. As well as extensive excerpts from
both the "Home" and "Metamorphosis" albums, there are rare outings for Greed (from "Seven") and both Cold and
Lemminkainen's Lament (from "The Singles").This is an opportunity to appreciate the charm
and subtleties of a band best known for its high-energy electric performances, and is not to be missed.
Magenta – unplugged but still the Real Deal.
