From the Back Cover

One of the best beloved and most charismatic singers of all time, Johnny Mathis brought his signature style to New York's Sony Music Studios on May 28, 1998 for a very special installment of the Emmy Award-Winning, interactive music series Live By Request. During the course of an extraordinary evening, broadcast live on A&E Network, Mathis took calls from his legions of fans-including former first lady Nany Reagan-who phoned in t o request their personal favorites from his vast treasure-trove of hits. Included here are the classics "Wonderful! Wonderful!," "Chances Are," "You Make Me Feel Brand New," "A Certain Smile," "Misty," and "The Twelfth of Never," among many others. Also included is a very special duet with Deniece Williams on "Too Much, Too Little, Too Late," which yielded a #1 hit for the duo in 1978. From top-flight musicianship and incomparable phrasing to the artist's legendary elegance and charm, Johnny Mathis-Live By Request captures an evening that can only be described as wonderful.

Format: DVD
I, consider myself blessed to view this great presentation by Johnny in this"Tony Bennett format ".This is tailor made for Johnny Mathis. The interactive format allows us to seee Johnny as we would never see him even in his live performances. Usually he appears shy and withdrawn. In this DVD and in the audio interview that follows you actually get to know meet and love the person 'JOHNNY". Sure you hear and see what a gifted person he is and how handsome he looks and WHAT A TOTALLY COMMITTED PERSON CAN DO WITH A GREAT TALENT. What to me is even more incredible is that inspite of those gifts what a wonderful [down to earth] and nice guy he is. This comes through again and again. Do I,recommend this DVD, yes to every lover of music and to every father and mother because raising a son like him would make every parents dream come true.To boot you get 90 minutes of a performance from a man who has been committed to his craft for 46 years and has loved every minute of it.

This is the show that was on the A&E network only it's much better on Dvd.The picture is very sharp.The colors are brillent.This dvd makes it fill like Johnny Mathis is performing in concert for you.Johnny Mathis takes music request from viewers that call in.This dvd also contains bonus footage from Johnny Mathis such as promos,radio interviews and song access.Also the sound is in surround.Johnny Mathis fans can't go wrong with this one.This one rates up there with Tony Bennett's live by request which I also have.I hope sony will release Johnny Mathis other 3 videoes on Dvd.

I just don't understand it! This great singer, Johnny Mathis, is just the very best, especially in this new release of "Live by Request."
I purchased this video and watched it with my brothers and sisters Christmas night, and now they insisted I order more -- I made a purchase of three more VHS "Live by Request" by Johnny. He just keeps getting better and better, as well as more and more handsome, as time goes on.
One of my favorite songs in the video is "Why Did I Choose You," which I had not heard for many years-and of course "Brazil."
I loved every single song, and anyone who also loves to hear Johnny, will love this video, I promise! I simply love Johnny Mathis, and I hope with all my heart that he will outlive me, because I just don't know what I'd do without his wonderful God-given talent. Johnny, should you read this, you are just the very best. Please get Johnny's "Live by Request," for you'll not be disappointed!
Johnny, your new video made my Christmas! Love you and please never stop and make more videos like "Live by Request."

When I heard the first note that Johnny Mathis sang it simply blew me to seventh heaven. With age Johnny voice seem to be more mature and stunning. Perhaps this is one of the best concerts I have come across in a long long long time!!!!!

I don't know how Johnny Mathis keeps his wonderful voice.I hope he doesn't mind singing the same old songs over and over again, in the same exact way when we listened to the Mercury and Columbia LP's.I'm just thankful that he does it now on dvd so that when I hear those certain songs [we all have our favorites!] I can really appreciate him and his orchestra.Like one caller on the dvd said "[your voice is] better now than it was 30 years ago".Audio and video are excellant.This is a nice dvd...get it.

Overall this is a very enjoyable dvd. The sound quality is good, though I would have appreciated a dts 5.1 audio track. Most of the performances are very good, but there are a few notes that Johnny misses BIG TIME (such as at the very beginning of "Chances Are"). But when he hits the notes, which is most of the time, his voice is still as smooth as it was 40 years ago. (Many singers seem to get somewhat scratchy sounding as they age; this doesn't appear to have happened to Johnny yet at all.) The duet with Deniece Williams on "Too Much Too Little Too Late" is fabulous.
I would recommend this to any Johnny Mathis fan or fans of this style of pop vocal music.
