"Liza Minnelli's concerts are always an incredible showcase of her talents. Having seen her many times onstage, I think this concert is one of her all-time best. A highly imaginative and original show with great material and Liza in peak form.Watch the singing actress at work in SORRY I ASKED or QUIET LOVE and with all the women dancers in STEPPING OUT(where's the DVD of that underrated film?) This show makes one wish for DVD releases of her first HBO concert from 1979(once on video) and her second one from London(1985..never on video) not to mention her other TV specials."
LEGENDARY PERFORMANCE~BRAVO LIZA MINNELLI !!!

"Like her legendary mother, nobody around today takes command of the stage like Liza Minnelli and this legendary event at New York's Radio City Music Hall clearly illustrates this...always a five star event in concert, I have been fortunate to experience this thrilling and amazing performer numerous times in concert from 1970 to 2005 and I am here to say that she has still got it and always will!!! In recent years for some silly reason that I don't get, the media has tried to damage Liza's artistic credibility but it doesn't work when Liza takes to the stage and shows sold out audiences with her soulful singing and great performing skills what she is all about and that she is and always will be a true legendary Superstar...numerous standing ovations later it is clear that Liza is going to be around for a long time to come and this tremendous concert is a keeper...BRAVO Liza and keep on rocking!!!"
Millions of Stars for Minnelli the Magnificent

"This concert took place shortly before Liza's health started to rapidly decline. It looks as if she wanted to leave a final testimony of what she could achieve while she was still at the top of her game. This should be a must-see for anyone pursuing a career in the performing arts.
And what a testimony this one is! If you thought Liza with a "Z" was great, you'll love this one. Liza took EVERTHING to the highest level of performance. The singing. The acting. The dancing. I was lucky to see this in person and there was a dance at the beginning of the concert (not included in any version) where Liza was the most beautiful, talented and graceful performer I had seen, or will ever see again, on stage. Her total control of her movements and her technique were flawless. A dubbed version of Losing my Mind is also missing from this DVD.
The only thing missing that I do not miss is the white modest blouse that covered the white outfit in the first act. It did nothing for Liza. Thank God it's gone!!!
I was going to mention the highlights of the show, but each song is a highlight!!! So I'll just mention my favorite song: Here I'll Stay/Our Love is Here to Stay. Minnelli is simply brilliant and totally believable. I get goose bumps every time I hear this song.
The packaging is similar to the Laser Disc, VHS and the CD released at the time. The visual quality is superb and the sound is perfect. They even solved a couple of problems from the Laser Disc/VHS versions. One of them was the synchronization between the image and the sound during the final verses of Seeing Things. The other one is the transition from Liza's recorded voice into her "live" voice at the beginning of Here I'll Stay/Our Love is Here to Stay (The "We've" on "We've got something permanent").
Be advised that there are NO extras in this DVD. Just Liza. But somehow, that's more than enough.
Buy this DVD TODAY, before it disappears for 30 years like Liza with a "Z" did. "

"Even if your not a Liza Minnelli fan,you will be amazed at this Women when you watch this tape from Liza's sold out tour in 1992. From "Teach me tonight" to,"New York,New York."Liza is fantastic. I love Sara Lee," its so funny,but when the second act starts,and Liza's Demon Diva's take over,the fun begins. Every type of Diva is in this number,from the very young,to a lady who must be in her late 70's. There all great,and when Liza sings"Natural Man," from her 1974 album,"Liza,Live at the Winter Garden," Liza brings down the house. I think this concert is the reason Liza had all her hip trouble afterwards.The tap dancing is wonderfull,but it had to put alot of strain on her joints,but that's Liza,always giving us the best she can.The early 90's was a great time for Liza.She had a Gold album,"Results." This concert was breaking all records,and she made a fantastic film,"Stepping out," that should have been one of the top movies of the year."
Liza at her best!

"If we had to choose one show that could resume the escence of Ms. Minelli's unique talent, this Radio City Music Hall show could be the one. She's seen in the top of her wonderful capacity to dazzle audiences, showing us what "star quality" means. The concert features Liza's best known numbers, cabaret songs, a big tap number at the end and a special tribute to her friend Bob Fosse. Liza is supported by an ensemble of multi-talented female performers, who give the show incredible power.Don't miss the opportunity to see one of the world's most talented and charismatic performers. Liza Minelli is the great lady of the musical theatre world. The one who everyone in show bussiness loves, because she teaches us what Broadway is all about. This video is no exception to that."
