Now you can see it as it was really meant to be. I've had an old, scrubby, VHS-derived copy for some time, but it looks and sounds tired. This re-release by Jan Lehman is a fantastic, high-quality version of the original film with additional material included. OK, this was filmed in 1992, but for us oldies... just close your eyes briefly and it's the 1962 folk scene again. In fact it will resound for all ages. Bert's music comes across as strong as ever and all the contributors remind us how things really changed once Bert appeared on the scene. Many of the numbers are now restored to full-length and there are several extra pieces not in the original release. Altogether a magnificent eulogy. Don't miss it.
