Farmers Manual - RLA label: Mego | style: experimental
DVD-Video/ROM, MEGO 777, 2003
3 days, 21 hours, 38 minutes and 3 seconds. That is the total playing time
of the new Farmers Manual release on Mego. The release comes as a hybrid
DVD, in a lovely big DVD box. The Box contains every locatable live
recording by Farmers Manual since 1995. You must excuse me for not having
heard each single live recording on this DVD...
So over 3 days of music, all live recordings since 1995, plus more it says
in the promo letter. So curious as I was, I put the disc in my player and
pushed the play button and waited. All I got to see was a short film, about
15 minutes long, showing three guys making an extra door in their studio. No

player, one that I don't have(the DVD players in your computer will play the
But nothing was lost, all the content of the DVD is mirrored on a website,
so the 3 days Farmers Manual live experience was not lost after all. So what
can you expect? A total overload of live recordings, giving you an amazing
amount of Farmers Manual music. But in the sheer quantity of the music lies
the problem of this DVD. It's simply too much. It's virtually impossible to
hear everything and remember what concert was what. But this negative side
isn't all that negative. Use the DVD when ever you feel like hearing some
Farmers Manual, but don't feel like playing that album you've heard so many
times already. Simply select a live recording you, and enjoy. You won't be
This DVD is a must have for Farmers Manual fans, and for everyone that
enjoyed a Farmers Manual concert at any point. A great initiative by Mego,
and an almost endless source of great music (if you like Farmers Manual that
is of course).
