'Humpy' does it again with this great concert from the Casino Rama in Canada during a 2005 tour.
Enge was 68/69 years old when this was filmed and you just wouldn't think of him as this age when he shows his versatility with the song set on offer on this DVD package. The oldies, but goodies, are in there along with some great sing-a-longs and footappers. A nice inclusion is the "Last of The Romantics" the title ballad of his 1978 album (which should be released on a CD!!!) which is a very rare performance of the song along with the classic "Love Me With All of Your Heart" in a medley with "Spanish Eyes".
It's great to see EH getting down and dirty with a couple of rock 'n' roll songs including "Honky Tonk World", but he saves the very best until last with his working of Paul Anka's "My Way" - a brilliantly beautiful performance.
The bonus track on the DVD "Columns of Grey" is another out-of-this-world performance which is so passionately touching and has to be seen to be believed. "The King of Romance" is most definitely a seasoned entertainer who is thoroughly enjoyable to watch and listen to, and most certainly deserves his Legendary status in a business that appears to produce less and less artists of his calibre.
This concert happens to be my favourite Engelbert show next to the "Engelbert Live" ('Love Unchained' from 1995) DVD and I can honestly say that five or so years on from his London Palladium filmed concert that Mr. Humperdinck's voice is like a fine wine!
A must-have addition to every fan's collection and a welcome addition to any non-fan's collection...don't miss out!
