OK so 'Later's' been going quite a while - it's a broadcasting institution blah blah blah - but the truth is, it's only ever as good as the next artist that's on, the next moment when a band you love or a singer you've never heard of before stops you in your tracks and makes your heart melt. This is the eleventh DVD in our 'library' and the chance to catch up on many of the best of those moments from this side of the new millennium. 'Later with Jools Holland' is all about moments of becoming and moments of discovery; imagine you've switched on to see the band of the moment or some legend you've worshipped all your life and suddenly there's a girl with motorcycle boots, an elfin smile and an effects pedal who's playing a Bo Diddely beat and has got the whole studio swinging and it's KT Tunstall making her now famous TV debut. There's plenty of moments like that on this collection - step forward Ray Lamontagne, Devendra Banhart and James Morrison - plus plenty of bands announcing themselves as bound for the big time - take a bow The Killers, Scissor Sisters and, of course, Arctic Monkeys playing in a British TV studio for the first and only time! But there's plenty of other discoveries to be enjoyed in the Later landscape - the vast sculptural sound of Iceland's Sigur Ros, the sheer playfulness of France's Camille, the killer groove of Mali's Amadou and Mariam and on and on. There's legends too - Arthur Lee, David Gilmour, Toots and Billy Preston. Enjoy these and many other magical moments from the last 5 years or so, take a trip round the show with Jools on the 'Extras' and enjoy a sampling of great tracks from those other ten DVDs, a magical mystery tour of great musical moments.
