Quick Flicks: Mike + the Mechanics + Paul Carrack - Live at Shepherds Bush London

by Kevin Wierzbicki

.
The band's Rewired album was new when this 2004 concert was filmed and the show opens with Carrack out front playing acoustic 12-string guitar and lending his soulful vocals to that album's Falling. Several other cuts from Rewired are scattered throughout a set that also includes favorites Another Cup of Coffee, Over My Shoulder and Beggar on a Beach of Gold.

And while the band's flawless mix of pop, prog and jazz tickled the audience throughout the 14-song performance, clearly fans were waiting to hear the hits. Silent Running, with a sinuous guitar solo from band namesake Mike Rutherford and the melancholy reflection of The Living Years are performed back to back but conspicuously absent is biggie All I Need is a Miracle, in all likelihood out of deference to Paul Young, the late band member who originally sang the song.

The title cut from the Word of Mouth album closes the show. Bonus features include promo video clips for seven songs and an interview segment with Rutherford and Carrack.
