Maestro Gordon Giltrap delivers yet another stunning album. Live At The BBC contains the highlights of his succesful period during the seventies where his guitar technique blended perfetly with a great symphonic accompaniment. As a contrast to the fragile guitar sounds you get the very subtle work of Eddie Spence on keyboards. The material on Live At The BBC mainly stems from albums like Visionary, Perilous Journey and Fear Of The Dark, albums which every self-respecting musician has at least heard once (or should have listened to!). It's also a must for Marillion diehards because of the inclusion of drummer Ian Mosley on "Fear Of The Dark." A very nice album with a stunning sound quality.
