Wow is not enough
on 24 February 2008
Only Rufus could have done it. Such a talented singer and songwriter in his own right with nothing to prove.
Deciding to pay homage to one of entertainments greatest and most loved stars should have been risky and full of pitfalls. I am sure it was, but you will never notice as it turned into a complete and utter success.
A show to please even the most hardened lover of the past and most die hard critic of tribute albums.
It has been a project of love and because of that it has worked so well. You can feel the tribute to Judy and you can sense the overwhelming respect that Rufus has for her memory, and, even with all of that, the performance portrays his own unique personality.
Never to be done again but thankfully those in the know after the Carnegie concert made sure the next project was filmed for posterity and for that we should all be truly grateful. The DVD of the show performed at the London Paladium is fantastic and brings to life the songs and the experience for those who were not able to be there.
Don't miss the chance to put into your music and film collection perhaps the most unique show ever.
