Please post your thoughts and comments on this 2020 Blu-Ray release from British Progressive Rock band Marillion.

This new title includes a full length concert film recorded live at St. David's Hall in Cardiff on Disc 1 and the full "With Friends from the Orchestra" studio album mixed in 5.1 surround on Disc 2.
This new title can be ordered directly from the band's webstore: With Friends At St David's

Thoroughly enjoyed this release; the concert is excellent visually, and the audio well produced but with minimal use of the surrounds, which is a shame as it could have done with a bit more separation of the band and the strings/brass to let the music breathe a little. However this is redeemed by the mix of the studio album, which has much more surround activity.

It’s interesting that Michael Hunter mixed the live songs differently from their studio versions, maybe he went along the lines of a live concert being in front of you, and then a feeling of being more surrounded by the musicians in the studio version. The band co-produced the studio mix so maybe their input explains the different approach. I enjoyed both equally, for different reasons, so for me the combination overall works well . There are visuals accompanying the studio album, a mix of studio footage, stills, and animations as used in the background in the concert, and there is also a behind the scenes documentary.

Highly recommended.

It looks like the ear music label is expanding the release of this title for late July 2021. Here is the link for Amazon US / Blu-ray.
Eliminating the currency conversion & global shipping makes this much more appealing to me at $21.00 plus I have Prime.
Hate to not buy from the band directly but this is a fringe purchase for me anyway.
Cool, thanks!
