This is a recording of Michael singing some of his own personal favourite songs in the intimate setting of the Cafe de Paris. As usual, Michael is in great voice, and his rendition of one of my all time favourite songs, The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face is absolutely wonderful. There are songs we haven't heard Michael sing before, new songs, written for, and by him, and old favourites too. Even the musicals section has new songs. Michael's interpretation of No Matter What from Whistle Down The Wind is better than I have ever heard! My only criticism isn't about Michael at all, but about the actual filming. If I buy a dvd of Michael Ball, then it is him I want to see, and not some unnamed,female string player, who the camera man showed for more time than he did Michael, which does mar the enjoyment somewhat! But apart from that, the musical content makes it a very worthwhile buy! The additional insight into Michael's promotional trip to USA is fun to watch, and the musical accompaniment to the shots is great.

Just like the album of the same name and bearing many of the songs from that collection of new country music, this concert performance grows on you. As usual, it showcases Mr. Ball's lively and engaging concert stage presence, although this time the songs are rendered in the more intimate atmosphere of the Cafe de Paris in London. The focus is on his new album of new songs like "You Bring the Best Out of Me", a new Ball composition called "Never Coming Back" together with cover versions of " The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face", "If Tommorrow Never Comes", "Greatest Man I Never Knew" and even "No Matter What". It is Michael's singing versatility ( and wonderful vocal range) which allows him to sing ballads and pop songs, musical theatre hits, as well as rock and roll oldies and provides his audience with a very entertaining evening. The DVD gives you a close-up view of this small stage concert - and is infectious enough that you feel like clapping together with his audience in a cabaret atmosphere, as he sings one wonderful song after another!

This was recorded in front of a very small group of people on a single night in London last year.
It gives the impression of a very small club - very intimate atmosphere, but WE can all be part of it.
I have never been a country fan, but I am now. Michael's rendition of "The greatest man I never knew" was breathtaking.

As good as the album is, the live vid is even better - ...There's more upbeat music, with a Rock'n'Roll medley and a superb rendition of Elvis Presley's "If I Can Dream" to round off the evening, plus snippets from Michael's trip to America. A must for all those who love this genre of music, not just the die-hard fans.

ABOUT TIME THIS COUNTRY RECOGNISED JUST HOW LUCKY WE ARE TO HAVE HIM AS OUR OWN.

This selection of diverse songs is the best. Michael is relaxed and comfortable with each song he delivers.
The selection he has chosen is to suit any mood and the entertainment value of this presentation makes the whole package absolutely delightful. Well done again Michael.

This is one terrific video of Michael performing at the Café de Paris in London's WestEnd. As well as singing most of the songs from the CD, he performs a rock'n'roll medley with as much mastery as he does his selection of love songs from the musicals. His voice is as good as ever and he is really enjoying himself in the intimate atmosphere of the Café de Paris. Also includes footage of Michael in New York and Washington, DC. This is a video well worth getting.
