“Saturday 21st November 2009 will linger long in the memories of around 60 lucky Magenta fans as Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios near Bath, UK, played host to the band’s first live acoustic recording.
This is a visual record of a 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.”
