NTSC/Region 0. One of the greatest balladeers and pop vocalists ever, this night in 1978 captures Williams in magisterial form backed by the London Symphony Orchestra. Augmented by a tight electric band and backing singers, the material ranges from lush ballads such as 'I Can't Smile Without You', through his pop hits for example `Can't Get Used to Losing You' and `Can't Take My Eyes Off You', to musicals and hymns. Throughout all Williams maintains terrific pace and energy whilst retaining sensitivity for the songs. His highly skilful performance is an artful lesson to any wannabes that parade through these endless talent-less TV star shows today. The Royal Albert Hall show was cut into two parts for Television broadcast, and both those parts, each around 50 minutes in length, are now available together on this DVD. Throughout there is a contemporary interview which provides an interesting background to Williams musical performance at that time. Cherry Red. 2006.

The DVD appears to be composed of two different performances, but I'm not sure. The second performance actually appears like it should have been the first, but it may have just been an editing snafu.
The DVD quality does leave much to be desired. The video is VHS quality and the audio is a little scratchy at times, but with the price and number of songs included here I don't think anyone would complain too much.
Definately glad I made the purchase and Amazon delivered quickly as usual. I don't think anyone would be sorry to add this performance to their collection.
