Feedback from Harvey's website, 2007
"Definitely the best Harvey evening we've ever had in terms of true entertainment – just the man and his guitar, heard as nature intended, and a wonderful interchange with the audience.All in all, a truly exceptional gig that will be, as confirmed by every attendee we spoke to, remembered and treasured for a very, very long time, especially by the teenage members of the audience."
