Movie Reviews

Heart-felt Music
Irish Admirer | Hiwasse, AR USA | 08/31/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"John McDermott is someone you'd be proud to know, and this DVD shows why. The music, the interviews, the clips all reveal a real person who loves his family, his friends, his countries (!) and unabashedly revels in the music that celebrates the finer things of life. In the concert portion, John presents a number of his standards (The Old Man, Christmas in the Trenches, Danny Boy) with honest emotion. His selections (Here You Are, When I Grow Too Old to Dream, Ottawa stepdancing medley) featuring other performers such as Alison Girvan, Chandra Gibson and Pulse, and John's goddaughter Hannah Kenney are all first-rate presentations of talent. It is very refreshing to see children performing as children (not as vapid copies of socalled "stars") in delightfully straightforward style in Crazy Mary.
The special feature I most enjoyed, however, was the clip of John singing "Legacy" at the award dinner for the Congressional Medal of Honor winners. If it was in my power, I'd send that clip to every tv station in America with strict instructions to play it right alongside the national anthem. The message that "we won't forget those who served" cannot be overemphasized. If you can buy only DVD this year, this is the one you should get."

"I really enjoyed this video, I have seen it five times.already. There are so many songs that I love to hear John sing -- Battle Hymn of the Republic, Crazy Mary, I'll Be Seeing You, Danny Boy and, of course, The Old Man" -- everyone's favorite.I well intend to attend the Richmond concert in Nov. 2003, be the Good Lord Willing.I am and will always be a true John McDermott fan.My husband is a jazz fan, but I'll drag him all the way from Washington,, D.C. to Richmond to hear this super Irish Tenor just one more time."

There are songs to reminds of of the ole times, songs that bring joy and sadness to your heart.The young and old, with John, will give you an evening you'll never forget. I have the cassette,cd,video and dvd of this, so I highly recommend it."
