ist das Bild auch zu akzeptieren. Die Songauswahl umfasst seine Hits aber auch
einige Erfolge von Frank Sinatra. Mit seinem Können schafft er es wieder einmal, aus diesen Klassikern ein Hörerlebnis zu machen. Dazu gibt es den einen oder anderen Smalltalk. Klar hat er bei meinem Konzert aus dem Jahre 1979 noch mehr und intensiver getanzt/gesteppt, aber trotzdem hat er es als
Entertainer noch drauf. Daher ist man nur enttäuscht, weil die Aufzeichnung
nach 1 Stunde vorbei ist.
Ich habe die DVD beim Verkäufer "Zoreno" für den sagenhaften Netto-Preis von
3,75 € gekauft und war nur mit der langen Lieferzeit unzufrieden (bestellt am
Bei so einem Preis sollte jeder mal einen Versuch starten, ob dieser Künstler
nicht was für in ist, denn sonst verpasst man etwas!

The shocking 5.1 dts sound is amazing and the video is surprisingly good for a film shot in 1985. It reminds me of Frank Sinatra's Live In Japan concert video filmed the same year and with probably the best sound as far as Sinatra concert videos are concerned. It is like catching Sammy in a small theater in Las Vegas with him dressed to the nines and backed by an amazing full orchestra band of about 30 plus members and a drummer that will knock your socks off as some other reviewers have previously mentioned.
This almost exactly one hour concert features Sammy in superior voice cutting the chit chat to a minimum and letting his much underrated voice soar on his hits like What Kind Of Fool Am I and I Gotta Be Me. He opens the show with one of his and Franks old favorites Where Or When and follows that with a blockbuster version of New York, New Your that Frank himself would be very proud to hear.
Sammy does a jazz improvisation that features his extraordinary drummer and himself scatting against each other and also include a rare tap dance during Singing In The Rain, He closes this amazing show with some amazing and rare impersonations of Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, Humphrey Bogart, Billy Eckstine and Jimmy Stewart before launching into the real finale and highlight of this spirited concert, Mr Bojangles.
This is an amazingly well shot concert with absolutely superb sound. Sammy is about 60 years of age and had his show down pat for maximum effect and star power. Humble, charismatic and one of the finest entertainers of the last century, this concert dvd is a must have for any Sammy fan or anybody that appreciates watching one of the greatest talents to ever walk across a stage.
Mr. Entertainment,plain and simple. One of a kind. About an hour of singing,dancing,and impressions.
A fabulous concert with his signature songs. And,my all time favorite,"Mr. Bojangles."
Riveting performance thankfully captured on video for future generations to appreciate.
A 5 star rating. A must for Sammy fans.
impersonations in this one!!! I had the pleasure of meeting him at the Friars Dean Martin Roast in 1984!!! What a thrill to sit and
speak with him!! This is just a fabulous Concert!!! "Bojangles" what an incredible close of the show!! Picture and Sound are excellent in
surround etc!!! U will LOVE IT!!!!
This show was filmed in 1985 in Germany. Surprisingly and sadly, he died only five years later in 1990 from cancer. In all regards, he is in top notch form in this DVD and (here)he sure looks like he has many years left to go...In addition, he really does look good here - snazzy, well dressed etc., unlike his "look" from the 1970's... And unlike the great Frank Sinatra, whose voice "changed" as he aged, Sammy's stayed consistant as did his energy, overall. His look may have changed and evolved over the years, but in this DVD, he has more of that stylish/classic look, that many of us prefered...Overall, while I still prefer his 1960's stuff, we have to take in consideration the fact that this DVD has the best audio and video quality available and this IS STILL A VERY VERY GOOD performance. The video and sound quality are excellent and will be acceptable to all of the "philes" out there. I may be wrong, but I believe I read somewhere that his wife had this peformance digitally remastered when it went to DVD. I own many hard to find DVDr's of his concerts - from the 60's through the 80's. While he always put on a great show, because of the poor video, I regretfully can't think of any I would (highly) recommend other than a B&W Amsterdam BBC concert from the 60's, but that's in Pal vs NTSC... There is also good & quality performance available on the DVD from: The Ultimate Rat Pack Collection: Live & Swingin (CD & DVD) that I would also HIGHLY recommend. The DVD w/ Liza Minelli & Frank Sinatra is okay but beyond that, trust me, those DVDr's( iOffer bootlegs) should be reserved for only the biggest fan, due to their poor sometimes aweful video quailty...So this DVD, The Best of Sammy Davis Jr. Live, is the only thing the public has. Luckily, this is very good & satisfying in all regards! I wish & hope that Mr. Davis's estate will invest and work on restoring/remastering some of his FULL LENGHTH performances - an HBO special from Mexico and a Boston Pops performance he did immediately comes to mind and there are many others. Unfortunately it is my understanding that "video" is harder to restore than "film" and the afore mentioned were likley shot in video and then there needs to be demand & funds...so we'll see....
Anyways, get this today. I couldn't recommend this DVD any higher to those that enjoy & appreciate quality entertainment. You will not be disappointed. They don't make em' like this anymore...Energywise, it starts slow and then builds and builds and builds and then has an incredible finish, just the way a good show should.
Btw, the incredible drummer featured in this DVD is also Tony Bennett's drummer in the more recent DVD, Tony Bennett's Wonderful World: Live in San Francisco (2002)
