The best musical satirist ever comes to DVD in his full glory. If you're easily shocked though, it may not be the best idea to associate with Tom Lehrer's music because he references murder, torture, nuclear warfare, the execution of 'innocent' pidgeons and other darkly humorous stuff. I have to say though, to the folk who find this too much, I think perhaps this is a...

2.0 out of 5 stars DVD regional block
Unfortunately the DVD can not be played in Norway due to regional block. Seems a bit outdated. I'm sure it is mentioned in smal writing somewhere but yet very unsatisfying not being mentioned on order.

This review is from: Tom Lehrer Collection (With Dvd (NTSC)) (Audio CD)
The best musical satirist ever comes to DVD in his full glory. If you're easily shocked though, it may not be the best idea to associate with Tom Lehrer's music because he references murder, torture, nuclear warfare, the execution of 'innocent' pidgeons and other darkly humorous stuff. I have to say though, to the folk who find this too much, I think perhaps this is a sign that you need to grow a thicker skin and learn to laugh! I give this 10/10, simply because the man had the guts to point out the controversial miseries of life in the '50's and '60's and the guy is very, very clever.... so it all makes a very interesting listen/watch. A dark comedy legend!

This review is from: Tom Lehrer Collection (With Dvd (NTSC)) (Audio CD)
The included DVD is locked to region 1. I don't know why Amazon doesn't include this in its product information.

5.0 out of 5 stars TOM LEHRER in good form !, 26 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tom Lehrer Collection (With Dvd (NTSC)) (Audio CD)
I first got to hear Tom when I was about 10 years old, and I laughed then and I'm still laughing now many years later!
His songs are Brilliant ! This selection contains all the classics and a few New ones. A delight!
The DVD is also good, but as he was performing in front of a Norwegian audience, their response leaves a little to be desired!
But the modest price is really for the CD alone.
If you don't know these songs, you've missed several treats!

5.0 out of 5 stars nostalgia, 22 Sep 2011
This review is from: Tom Lehrer Collection (With Dvd (NTSC)) (Audio CD)
First heard most of these in the late 50's. Played again and immediately started "singing" along with it. Also fantastic to hear one of the great innovators of music/satire.

This review is from: Tom Lehrer Collection (With Dvd (NTSC)) (Audio CD)
Great to hear Tom Lehrer again after losing track of him over the past 15 years. Still as fresh and amusing as it was all those years ago.
