Editorial Reviews

1957, at the tender age of 16, Paul Anka's debut hit single Diana immediately catapulted him into Hall of Fame status. For decades now, Anka has been one of the most successful composers around: Tom Jones' She's a Lady was written by him, as well as the lyrics for Frank Sinatra's legendary signature song My Way. He has released over 120 albums and sold over 100 million records. Anka has also been named the 21st most successful artist in Billboard's history (Billboard statistic). Today, Paul Anka is known as the last great crooner. When he translates his own as well as cover songs into elegant swing and gives his charm free reign on the stage, Anka glorifies the purest form of entertainment. Joined by his Big Band, he presents his programme 'Rock Swings' including famous rock classics in Swing versions at AVO SESSION Basel. This DVD includes the big hits Diana, My Way, New York New York, Put Your Head On My Shoulder and more.

Customer Reviews

The image quality and sound are sharp.
Steve Ramm
The music is fantastic, his voice superb, the band outstanding and the set somehow manages to encompass a good chunk of his career.
Daniel Siciliano
I love it and would recommend this film and any of his music to everyone.

For over 50 years Canadian Pauil Anka has been writing pop hits (for both himself and others) and performing. In the late 1960s (I saw him perform in a night club and remember what a tight and professional show he performed. He then became a Las Vegas staple.). Over the years he's honed his craft and, though, the hits aren't there for him anymore, he still puts on a great show and even had co-writer credit on Michael Jackson's last recording, "This is it!".

This Bluray contains a fairly recent performance, recorded in Basel Switzerland in 2011 and contains virtually every hit song Anka recorded(among the 24 songs performed during the 85 minute concert. (You also get to hear the songs he wrote for others - "She's A Lady" for Tom Jones and "It Doesn't Matter Any More"). There are a few that he didn't write (but never says he didn't. "New York, New York" is Kander/Ebb, for instance, and was a hit for Frank Sinatra (as was Anka's "My Way"). Speaking of Sinatra, Anka has a lot of the stage presence of Sinatra during his night club years. He loves his audience and encourages them to sing along and he roams into the audience quite often. (The curtain call at end runs nearly 4 minutes before the ending credits roll.
Anka still has the voice and he put together a good band to back him, with a large brass section. Og did I mention he does two songs on acoustic guitar? That's the first time I ever saw him play one.

The image quality and sound are sharp. There are no bonus features. Anka fans (especially those who don't have other DVds of the singer, will enjoy this. I did. For an interesting comparison of Anka now and "then" check out the short 26-minute National Film Board of Canada documentary "Lonely Boy" (1962) (it's on Youtube).

I hope this review was both informative and helpful.

While he is a great performer on stage, the video of this concert was not one of his overall best. We love his music and his personality on stage. If you love Paul Anka, you'll overlook that this wasn't his best performance.

The human side on this performance by this great artist goes well beyond his artistic side and this is a lot if the artist is Paul Anka. His mini stories behind the songs introduce part of this human side the rest is himself.

Good song selection.

Perhaps the audience in the concert is too mature to let themselves with the music, even with a lot of encouragement from the artist.
