During this 30 minutes recording, we can hear emblematic works of progressive rock such as The Musical Box, Supper’s Ready, The Return Of The Giant Hogweed and The Knife, as well as a short interview in the dressing rooms of Le Bataclan, by Lain Dister, where they evoke their musical influences and their live staging.
