A Must-Have for Michael Crawford Fans!!!
Swati S. Desai | Washington, DC | 03/26/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Michael Crawford is a wonderful singer. Throughout the video, he regales the audience with wonderful (and very funny) stories. Buy it even if you saw the PBS version, because there are songs on this that PBS didn't air. Michael has a great stage performance, and that, combined with his singing ability, make for a wonderful video. If you are at al familiar with Michael Crawford or have heard the London recording of Phantom of the Opera (he was the Phantom) and liked it, I guarentee you will love this video."
An Absolutely Lovely and Thoroughly Entertaining Concert!

"To most North Americans, Michael Crawford is best known for his role as the Phantom in Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical, The Phantom of the Opera. Fans of Lloyd Webber's music, not to mention of Crawford's lovely voice, will not be disappointed with this concert, for Crawford performs a number of songs from Lloyd Webber's musicals--Gethsemane, Love Changes Everything, The Music of the Night, and a duet of The Phantom of the Opera and All I Ask of You with the singer who apparently played Christine in the Los Angeles production. He also performs a couple of other numbers from musicals (Tonight and Before the Parade Passes By) and a medley of two Irish songs--Galway Bay and I'll Take You Home Again, Kathleen--as a beautiful tribute to his Irish grandmother, Kathleen. He closes the concert with three religious songs: Not Too Far from Here, On Eagle's Wings, and as an encore, Spirit of the Living God.The selection of songs are really lovely and Crawford's performance is absolutely splendid. What makes this 60-minute video so special, however, are his many little anecdotes and song introductions. With most concert videos that I've seen, the artists perform one song after another with only a brief word of welcome at the start, a brief introduction if there's a special guest, and a brief thank you at the end. By contrast, Crawford talks almost as much as he sings, thereby proving himself (at least in my opinion) to be not only a consummate vocalist but a very capable entertainer all around. The result is a thoroughly entertaining performance that reaches its conclusion far too quickly.In short, I highly recommend this video to fans of Michael Crawford. For those interested, he also has a very entertaining autobiography entitled Parcel Arrived Safely: Tied With String. Finally, I must just mention that those who are only familiar (as was I) with this suave, confident entertainer for his singing ability may be interested in checking out the video boxed set of Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em (a British series in which he performed all his own daring and often dangerous stunts!). The juxtaposition of the classy, internationally-famous entertainer seen here with the gawky, accident-prone idiot he portrays in that series not only underscores even further his incredible versatility and ability as an entertainer, but it is sure to leave you shaking your head in amazement."
Almost as good as seeing him live | Atlanta, Georgia, USA | 01/03/2000

"Michael Crawford's humor, ability to engage an audience, and superb voice combine to make this video completely entertaining from beginning to end. The viewer is treated to a variety of selections from the quietness of the Irish melodies to the power of Phantom of the Opera and Gethsemane. Watching Michael Crawford become the Phantom without makeup, props, or costumes while performing the songs from Phantom of the Opera, is amazing and will have the viewer spellbound by the end of Music of the Night."
