Here is the 'King of Romance' live in concert at the L.A. Forum in 1995 singing the songs from his classic "Love Unchained" album plus many, many more.

This is a performance that is both beautiful and rivetting and nobody can do it this way other than Engelbert himself. There have been so many venues around the globe that have been touched by his sheer magic and showmanship through the years and these include The London Palladium, The Greek Theatre and The Riviera. However, it is on this DVD at The Forum that Enge completely makes it his romantic realm.

Accompanied by a fabulous orchestra conducted by the late Bebu Silvetti we are treated to some beautiful renditions of most of the tracks on his "Love Unchained" album including "Love Is A Many Splendoured Thing", "Too Young", "Sittin' On The Dock Of The Bay", and "Unchained Melody". And, of course, a couple of his classics from yesteryear are in there too, namely "Release Me", the haunting "Shadow Of Your Smile" and "After The Lovin'".

There is a special treat in store from the backing singer and 'front woman' the lovely Michaelina who also duets on a couple of numbers with Enge, and their finale is really something else! Another bonus includes Engelbert being filmed in the recording studios singing "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" which isn't featured in the actual concert.

So, a wonderful DVD that hits the right spots and there is also a bonus interview with the man from his home in Leicestershire...you're not going to be disappointed!

This DVD is refreshing and thoroughly enjoyable! Despite being on the go for decades, Enge's voice is as honey-ed and rich as ever, with no problems sweeping through the entire range of notes effortlessly. I admire his energy and enthusiasm, an encouragement to all of his vintage! The commentary/interview with him is also informative and honest. Highly recommended!

Don't know what the other reviewer is talking about. I guess all have different tastes. I found this concert enchanting! Great orchestra, wonderful arrangement and a superb singer! It all has high class. The whole concert has sort of a 1950's theme and it is nice to listen to songs like Too Young and Unchained Melody the way they are done here. I actually am very find of this concert-DVD, I am not kidding! Have a nice evening in fron of the TV!

I've heard of Engelbert Humperdinck songs on vinyl more than 40 years ago and his top "Release Me" was my favorite. Soon after many more hits followed and I had most of them. EH possessed the most powerful vocals of his time. I also have a few of his concert DVDs crooning his heart out to his audience.
