Aznavour had recently published two very good studio albums ("Embrasse Moi" in 1986 and "Je Bois" in 1987) as he gave his series of concerts at the Palais des Congres in 1987. This allows for a very original first part of this DVD, mostly dedicated to the new songs from these albums. Most of these songs were never included again in live performances. The second half of this concert also contains several pearls, such as "Apres l'Amour", rarely included in his live performances, and what is in my opinion the best version of "La Mama" he ever published on a live album or DVD.

Aznavour was at the top of his art in 1987, having already 30 years of career behind him, yet still being a very healthy and quite inspired middle aged icon. He was also quite prolific during that decade, publishing no less than 6 albums of original material, all of very good quality with the possible exception of 1982's "Une Premiere Danse".

The main regret here is the poor picture quality of this DVD, it looks like VHS output transposed to a DVD. So disappointing I took two stars off. Shame for such a great performance, but you may be better off buying the CD.

I have 3 Aznavour in concert DVDs and this is the best yet. On this DVD, he sings "Ave Maria" with such feeling and the passion on his face is priceless. That alone is worth the price of this DVD. Other great songs on this are JE M'VOYAIS DEJA and DESTINATION INCONNUE. It is impossible to truly appreciate his music without seeing him perform live. His facial expressions and his gesture of holding out his arms as if to embrace the audience is like nothing I have ever seen in any other singer.

I recommend this DVD for all Aznavour fans.
