Legacy Box = 2 DVD = (DVD)
This (in many ways) quite magnificent double DVD package is a true representation of how influential the efforts of a band's fan base can ultimately become. Not only has this abiding enthusiasm of the friends of the German progressive rock band Eloy led to remastered editions of 'Ra', 'Destination', 'The Tides Return Forever' and 'Chronicles' being made available recently (and including previously unreleased pictures and new liner notes from Frank Bornemann) but also to a band reunion and the release of a new album - 'Visionary'- (the band's first for eleven years, and one that captures so much of their abiding musical legacy) at the beginning of their 40th anniversary year. My interview with Frank during the autumn of 2010 confirmed that this heritage DVD was also on schedule to appear just before the end of the year: and duly did so, right on cue. The first disc of 'The Legacy Box' comprises a 110 minute documentary ('Mighty Echoes') that journeys through the entire 40-year history of Eloy, and in so doing identifies four main epochs in this history ('The Beginning And First Steps Forward (1969 - 1975)'), encompassing the albums 'Eloy', 'Inside', 'Floating' and 'Power And The Passion'; ('Years Of Success (1976 - 1979)') encompassing the albums 'Dawn', 'Ocean' and 'Silent Cries And Mighty Echoes'; ('New Paths And Old Values (1980 - 1984)') encompassing the albums 'Colours', 'Planets', 'Time To Turn', 'Performance' and 'Metromania'; (and finally 'From Project To Band (1985 to present)') and covering the albums 'Ra', 'Destination', 'The Tides Return Forever'. 'Ocean 2: The Answer' and 'Visionary'. The documentary is also a triumph of substance over paucity. A relative lack of archived imagery is cleverly circumvented by the ways in which what is available has been weaved around the recently recorded interview footage. However, for the seasoned admirer of the band (okay, read "fan") such as myself, this does leads to frustration when considering the second DVD of this set comprising as it does some 19 "clips" from TV shows, live videos and promotional material and with a running time of 105 minutes.
