This is an outstanding video of Paul Weller and his (then) support band ‘The Movement’. Mr Weller, having had a short break from the Style Council comes crashing back into the music scene with a self financed album. To support this he brings a band together and carries out one of the most colourful and moving musical events the 90’s had seen. The opening song, happens to be a Small Faces number ‘Tin Soldier’. Weller had found out minutes before coming on stage that one of his many mentors (Steve Marriott) had died and did an off the cuff tribute. The song sheet is long and fantastic to say the least with songs such as Magic Bus (The Who) and Tin Soldier (Small Faces)and a few old Style Council numbers, Weller shows that he is back and with full force. Overall this is an amazing video that shows the true talent of a man who, then, couldn’t even get a record deal. If you are new to Paul Weller and have never seen the great man live then buy it, You will not regret one minute of this amazing piece of musical history.
