Steve Hackett – Once Above a Time – This was the fourth Steve Hackett DVD, which was filmed in Budapest Hungary at the Petofi Csarnok on the 3rd April 2004.
This concert was planned to be filmed so unlike the Live in Toyko DVD it has some meaningful camera angles and compared to the Somewhere in South America DVD the footage is crystal clear.
Ben Fenner was permitted to mix the show in Dolby DTS as well as Dolby Digital which gives the DVD a better sound.
The DVD was released on the 22th November 2004.
