As part of the Two Tone crowd, the English Beat were invariably labeled a "ska" band, a preposterous tag, since their lavish, pop-driven melodies, mid-tempo rhythms, and sweet vocals placed them firmly in rocksteady territory, albeit in their earliest days it was with a tinge of punk's fire.

It was Crossing Swords - Long Tall Texans - Long Tall Texans Story potent mix, and although the group never cracked the States, in Britain they notched up a baker's dozen of hits before folding in This DVD presents that splendid two-hour-plus performance in full.

Inevitably, the punkier numbers don't have quite the punch of they used to; they're replaced by a propulsive drive that is, however, just as compulsive. And if "Two Swords" has lost its urgency, well, that's because neo-Nazis are a thing of the past in Britain. Margaret Thatcher, too, disappeared off the scene years ago, so it's a bit disconcerting to hear the band calling for her to stand down, until they deftly replace her name with George Bush and Tony Blairto the roaring approval of the packed out hall.

Dave Wakeling 's vocals are still as smooth as warm honey, Ranking Roger 's just as exhilarating, and the band's music is, if anything, even better. The twinkling-eyed Saxa never leaves the stage, continuously stealing the show with his magnificent solos, but the rest of the Beat don't mind a bit, encouraging him on to further heights.

As one of the sole remaining ska legends still performing, his saxophone gives even the band's lightest and bubbly pop numbers a true Jamaican soul. Stand Down Margaret - The Beat - In Concert At The Royal Festival Hall (DVD) rest of the English Beat give it their all, and a phenomenal show it was.

The bonus features include extensive interviews with three of the bandmembers that encompass a fascinating look back through their history and the story behind their re-formation.
