5.0 out of 5 stars The Best!!! July 1, 2010
Verified Purchase
While the name "Best Of", implies a collection of various clips from different performances, be rest assured this is ONE FULL LENGTH START TO FINISH CONCERT. The performance is about an hour long. It stars Sammy Davis Jr. and features a very talented drummer. I happen to own many many concert DVD's & blue-rays of many different genres. Simply put, not only is this the best DVD concert I own, it ranks among the best concerts (of any genre)I have ever seen. Sammy Davis Jr. = the greatest entertainer ever. It's just simply amazing how talented this guy was. As much as I like some of the other crooners and entertainers of that "by gone era", in reality, none of them could hold a candle to Sammy, and they knew it. In fact I have shown this DVD to several people, both musicians and non-musicians, young and old, none of which were "fans", but everyone agrees - some even teary eyed(like me in parts...). After showing(off) this DVD, I have created some new fans.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best of Sammy Davis Jr.: Live March 25, 2008
Verified Purchase
I purchased this DVD for my husband, and he was very happy with it. It was the complete concert which took place in Germany, and was excellent. We would highly recommend it to anyone interested in Sammy Davis Jr.'s music. He was a vibrant showman and very exciting to watch. It was definitely worth the price. And unlike the more expensive version, this one is formatted for use in our DVD machines in this country and Canada.

5.0 out of 5 stars WHAT HE DID FOR US July 29, 2007
MY LIFE REVOLVES AROUND SAMMY DAVIS JR. MY LIFE'S THEME SONG IS I'VE GOTTA BE ME. IT IS THE FIRST SONG I LISTEN TO ON MY IPOD AS I GO TO WORK. I HAVE WAITED A LONG TIME FOR THIS DVD OR ANYTHING THAT WAS A CLEAR SOLO PERFORMANCE OF THE MAN! I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF THIS DVD FOR I HAVE SEVERAL CONCERTS OF SAMMY ALONE AND WITH OTHER AND THIS WAS GOOD. THE POWER WAS THERE BUT SOMETHING IS MISSING AND I FEEL IT LIES WITH THE ORCHESTRA OUTSIDE OF JAMES, CLAYTON AND GEORGE. I THINK THEY JUST COULD NOT FIND THE GROOVE ON THE UPTEMPO NUMBERS. LADY IS A TRAMP IS CHAMP AS IT ALWAYS WAS WHEN SAMMY LAID HIS VOCAL ON IT!! ONE OF MY FAVORITES BY SAMMY IS WHAT I DID FOR LOVE JUST GREAT, I LOVE HOW HE BREAKS IT DOWN AT THE END! IT IS ALWAYS NICE TO SEE SAMMY DANCE FOR I THINK HE WAS ONE OF THE BEST RHYTHM DANCERS I EVER SEEN. THE IMPROV STUFF IS WAS NEVER BETTER AND THERE ARE GREAT RECORDED EXAMPLES OF IT. THEN THE EPIC MR. BOJANGLES WAS AS IT ALWAYS WAS OUTSTANDING BECAUSE I FELT THOSE CHILLS I AM USE TO FEELING WHEN SAMMY DAVIS JR SINGS IT! THIS DVD IS WORTH ANYONE'S MONEY BUT IT TAKES A TRUE SAMMY FAN TO SEE AND FIND THE MAGIC! I FOUND IT BY JUST WATCHING THE MAN AT WORK!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr. Wonderful! March 8, 2008
By Richard
Verified Purchase
Sammy's years of experience, love of performing, rapport with everyone around him, and unlimited talent make this a wonderful concert. He sings, dances, does impressions, kicks up the band, ad libs and obviously charms the enthusiastic audience. There's more Sammy here than usual(no guest fillers), but still not enough;making it two hours instead of one would be the only thing that would improve this great show. Fine sound and picture. A timeless treasure!

I don't think SD would want to be remembered by this performance. It lacks the energy and humor that made him outstanding.

Wanted some videos of Sammy Davis Jr. performing, but didn't feel this one was in the league of his best. His charisma continues to wow those who have the opportunity to experience him. Truly, he will be remembered as an extraordinary person who made his life entertaining us.

He could sing and dance, so imitations. Sorry I never got to see him live as I did Sinatra and Ray Charles. I love music and play him CD while I'm doing my bookwork. Read more
