Not what I expected

"I have always been a paul anka fan. I have all of his greatest hits on albums and cherish them deeply, but when I came across this DVD, I expected a great singing performance, not a comic act. What happened with his original style of singing? Many of the songs had different melodic tones mixed with his comments to the audience. For example, when he sang Puppy Love, he was adding lyrics to his song by making a comment about a pregnant woman in the audience, which I found distastful. Overall, I expected an entertaining concert filled with his talent as showed in the past. If you are looking for a great Paul Anka concert, this is definitely not the one. I deeply regret ever buying this DVD. If anyone out there knows where to get a great concert of Paul Anka on DVD please let me know."

"Paul Anka is one of the oldies legends. This concert DVD brings many great songs performed brilliantly by this amazing singer. The only drawback is the change of melodies and rythms of most of those songs. I think it's to make them different, and add a change to the show.
Where's the famous intro melody of "PAPA"? The song is performed nicely, but the original is certainly better.Instead of this, I enjoy this DVD on both sound (Dolby 5.1) and picture, and unfortunately this is the only live show available for Paul Anka on DVD."
Memorable songs, great performer!

"If you're a fan of Paul Anka with songs like "Papa", "You Are My Destiny", "Lonely Boy" this is a must have. It's an incredible DVD. You won't be disappointed with the contents (songs and biography) and the way Paul performs. There seems to be a recent written song "Freedom for the World" in this DVD that will be, for sure, another memorable song by Paul Anka. Let buy this DVD and you will enjoy it."
One of the greatest entertainers ever
