In any list of the greatest British bands of the last 20 years, the distinctive name of James wouldn't be far from the top. Emerging on Manchester's Factory Records in the mid-eighties, they ploughed their own syncratic furrow - through line-up changes, business problems and medical ailments - to become a rare example of a rock group who combined commercial success with integrity. The recent decision of vocalist Tim Booth to walk away while the band were still at the top is typical of James' dignity and uniqueness. The band made some wonderful records - among them quintessential anthems like Come Home and Sit Down - but were perhaps never happier than in the live environment.
Here, with the most feverish fan base in pop hanging on every incisive word of the jerking. dancing Booth. James' wonderful music took on even greater levels of emotion. Filmed at the Manchester Arena during their last ever tour, this definitive live document captures the exuberance and poignancy of a classic James performance, recording the unique collision between celebration and sorrow that all this has come to an end. Brilliantly shot, the communal relationship between a band, their music and their audience has never been better captured.
