Product Description

Robbie Williams performs a tribute to the classic songs of the fifties and the legendary singers, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jnr and Dean Martin, who made them hits. Duets include 'Somethin' Stupid' with Jane Horrocks, and 'It Was a Very Good Year' with a video footage version of Frank Sinatra, among others.

From Amazon.co.uk

For one night only the Robbie Williams showcase Live At The Albert is a fantastic testament to what was a very special evening. The concert offered tracks from his Rat Pack covers album Swing When You're Winning an album that finally gave him across the board appeal from nostalgic Grannies to hormonally imbalanced teenagers. With the average ticket price well into three figures and the likes of Tara Palmer-Tompkinson, Bob Geldof and Nicole Kidman in the stalls, this was no ordinary Robbie concert. Backed by a full swing band, accompanied by a slew of glamorous dancers, compered by Rupert Everett and featuring duets with John Lovitz, Jane Horrocks, the scene-stealing Jonathan Wilkes and even Old Blue Eyes himself Frank Sinatra (albeit in video form), Robbie takes centre stage and performs like never before. Classic track follows classic track--from "The Lady is a Tramp" (which Robbie dedicates to his last three girlfriends), to "Mr Bojangles" to "My Way", each and every one of them is instantly recognisable, even to most of the younger members of the audience. Directed by Hamish Hamilton (the man behind the spectacular U2 Elevation DVD) this is a great up close and personal view of an intimate gig.

On the DVD: The disc is lovingly put together in glorious 5.1 surround sound. The DVD also features the documentary "Well Swung" which follows Robbie all the way to Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, where he recorded some of the tracks for the album with members of Frank's original band. There is also a gallery of luscious shots of Robbie on location and at the Capitol Studios. At times it does tend towards the schmaltzy, with Robbie fighting back the tears when the video footage of Frank singing booms out across the Albert Hall, but this is scant criticism. All in all this is a fantastic performance from a legend in the making. --Helen Marquis --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Robbie Williams has come so far in such a short space of time. This DVD demonstrates exactly that. How able he is to change roles. The DVD provides a backstage film and scenes of the making of the Swing when you're Winning album. To see him so happy making the album in the recording studio is very emotional, for both him and viewer. The DVD offers excellent entertainment for all Robbie fans and those who perhaps don't follow him quite so avidly! He sings all of the songs to an excellent standard along with his special guests, particularly the duets with Jane Horrocks and Johnathan Wilkes. Superb, go buy it!!!

Format: DVD
The rat pack's cool image made something of a comeback in 2002 with Stephen Soderbergh's remake of Ocean's Eleven, although it seems that for Mr Robbie Williams, in his 2001 concert Live at the Albert, the rat pack sense of style never went out of fashion.
Live At The Albert is primarily a showcase for Robbie's multi million selling Swing When You're Winning, an astonishing album of vintage classics from the '50s swing era, originally sung by Robbie's heroes, namely, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jnr and of course, the legendary Frank Sinatra. Live At The Albert features several live duets including "Well, Did You Evah?" with Jon Lovitz and thanks to the miracle of modern technology, a duet with the late great Frank Sinatra himself. Live At the Albert is a young man fulfilling a childhood dream; wearing a tux, backed by an old style big band and playing to an adoring (sold out) audience at London's famous Royal Albert Hall, with his mom in the front row.
The first time I watched Robbie Williams live concert at London's Royal Albert Hall, on a Saturday evening last November, I was so impressed I went straight online at Amazon to review his debut U.S. release The Ego Has Landed. "The Ego Has Landed" refers to Robbie's often brash public statements about himself, which (if taken at face value) suggest that he is a bit of an ego-maniac. However, despite much of his rhetoric, Robbie Williams has in the past turned to both booze and drugs to conquer his fears and self-doubt. Thankfully he survived both or we would have been deprived of the world's greatest showman.

Robbie Williams needs no introduction and if he does, it should be more than a couple paragraphs from Rupert Everett at the opening of his concert at the Albert. Robbie's performances are almost flawless, although I would rather have Jane Horrocks performed more than just echoing to Robbie. My favourites are: "Have you met Miss Jones", "Ain't That a Kick in The Head," "Mr. Bojangles," and "My way" . Throughout, the concert proves what a great singer/entertainer he is.

This DVD is brilliant. Robbie has a great voice, the songs are classics and the guest stars great. I originally only saw the end of the show on TV but I had to buy this and I wasn't disappointed. It was hard not to get a lump in your throat when Robbie showed the Frank Sinatra footage and when he finished with 'My Way'. Buy the DVD and buy the album, its his best so far.
The boy's done good!

This could have been a great concert with some great numbers from the Rat Pack. RW's voice is good, strong, and in-tune and he carries off these well-known standards with flair and polish. Musically I could not fault him. The band and dancers are really great to work with too. On a big sound system the sound stage is really good and with blu-ray on an LED screen, the effect is almost like being there at the Albert Hall.

All of this could have warranted five stars. But, I personally don't like the regular use of the 'F' word he uses between numbers. Why also the need to light up and smoke a cigerette on stage at one point? Neither adds anything to his performance and just insults the audience. These things, plus a couple of crude remarks about his supporting female dancers bring it down to three stars in my book.

I don't think that one would have seen or heard Messers Sinatra, Martin and Davis doing any of these things.

I loved the show, it is well captured on this DVD! Robbie Williams is in excellent shape. The only thing missing is the videoclip to "Somethin' stupid" with Nicole Kidman. That would have been great to have it included.

Who would ever have thought that the fat bloke who spent most of his time in the back of Take That would turn into one of the country's best all-round entertainers.
This DVD Live at the Albert hall finds Robbie singing covers of some of the greatest songs that have ever been written and have been sung in the past by some of the best singers who have ever walked on this earth.
THe best tracks on this DVD are Me and My Shadow sang along with Jonathan Wilkes, Things with Jane Horrocks and Have you met Miss Jones?
Not to be missed however is Rupert Everett in his role as compere. He is absolutely hilarious!!!
