Superb concert, great package
Alejandra Vernon | Long Beach, California | 01/11/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In this live performance from the Forum in Los Angeles in 1995, Engelbert has the same amazing vocal range, breath control and smooth sound he had in the late '60s and '70s when he had his own television show, and pop hits like "Release Me" and the many romantic ballads that made him a superstar, in fact he is quoted in the liner notes as saying "time gives you more experience, and I sing with more depth now because I draw on that experience whenever possible".

This is a terrific concert, and a lot of the credit goes to the fabulous arranger/musical director Bebu Silvetti, who has done so much marvelous work with top Latin music stars like Luis Miguel and Rocio Durcal. He weaves his magic here with lush arrangements and superb musicianship, and in the section that takes place in a recording studio ("Smoke Gets in Your Eyes") and the duo with Engelbert and Bebu on piano ("The Shadow of Your Smile"), one can tell that these two men have a rapport and admiration of each others' skills and talent.

Engelbert is also backed by an wonderful trio of singers, and one of them, Michaela, gets to show how well she can sing solo with a stupendous "Malagueña", and she also sings a duet with Engelbert ("When I Fall in Love").
In "Quando, Quando, Quando", he really lets loose, dancing as well as singing. He looks good in the first half in black with a silver waistcoat, and in the second half in a purple flounced shirt. The final two numbers are extraordinary..."Unchained Melody" is fantastic, and his "Ave Maria" encore sublime.
Total running time is 2 hours.

The DVD extras include a long interview that takes place in Engelbert's home in England, a great old house on 25 acres of land, with many gardens designed by his wife; he tells stories of his life, which are quite fascinating, and a combination of hard work, fate, and God's blessings.
There is also a "photo gallery" with a few photos, most of them seen in the interview section.
This package comes with the CD of the concert, making it a super value. The only tracks missing from the CD are the studio recording session of "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes", and the "Malagueña" sung by Michaela.
Beautiful music - Great sound and magnificent colors!

"Englebert still has the magic. DTS sound is fabulous and the colors are vivid. The 54-piece orchestra and the background singers add so much to the concert. Absolutely fantastic music!"
Some of Engelbert's Finest

"Even in the Autumn of his career he offers up such a fine piece of work. This is as much a delight to watch as it is to listen to. What a talent. Unchained Melody shows the range and gift he has delivered to the world through his songs for so long. You can't go wrong with this one."

"This is by far the best of his DVD. In fact, I owned 3 of this DVD. My last purchase was because I wanted the CD, so that I can listen sometimes without watching the DVD. I can listen/watch it without getting tired of it. In fact, the more I play it, the more you appreciate & enjoy what a great singer Engelbert is ! This is a highly recommended DVD for everyone."
