Bruford DVD

Continuing the most recent theme, here, there's another soon-to-be-released DVD of an old performance of a short-lived but well-loved musical group. This time it's Bill Bruford's eponymous group Bruford, featuring Allan Holdsworth on guitar, Jeff Berlin on bass, Dave Stewart on keyboards, Annette Peacock on vocals, and Bruford on drums. It was recorded at Oxford Polytechnic, England, on March 7th, 1979 (my birthday) for a TV program called "Rock Goes to College." The group in this basic form released two albums, Feels Good to Me (1977) and (without Peacock) One of a Kind (1978) before Holdsworth left to form his own group.
