This review is from: Live at the Palladium (Audio CD)
After years of false hope, the Legendary Concert Event from the greatest ever Mother/Daughter Duo in Show Business history is finally released in somewhat complete form on Compact Disc & holds up all these years later as an extraordinary event to experience over and over...touching LiZa introduction to London audience by Judy who is sounding very proud, teenage Liza comes out to a receptive audience and gives stunning performances giving a clear indication a new star was born at The London Palladium that night and the love affair with English audiences continues to date...mama gave her master-class with tremendous performances that rocked & riveted the sold-out Palladium and this totally awesome event is deserving of this well thought out but long-overdue banner release! Duets are exhuberant and beautifully performed & arranged and balance between these are perfection with showstopping solo performances. Liza in strong & soulful vocal form make "Gypsy In My Soul", "The Travelin' Life" & "Who's Sorry Now" thrilling to experience while Judy sings up a storm with a riveting "What Now My Love" which has got to be one of the all-time greatest performances from any singer...passionate and deeply soulful vocal make "The Man That Got Away" from "A Star Is Born" masterpiece definitive while "The Music That Makes Me Dance" from "Funny Girl" is both touching and riveting and that final note in the stormy almost off the track yet perfectly sung "Never Will I Marry" is incredible...classic performance of Charlie Champlin's "Smile" is moving, memorable and impossible to compare making this performance definitive. "Hooray For Love" duet is amazing to experience with both singers in top form & Judy takes "You And The Night And The Music" over the top! Throughout all these great performances one can tell the audience went totally crazy and this joyful event is the greatest DIVA Fest of all time and a magical musical ride to enjoy over and over...thank you Judy & Liza for this extraordinary musical treasure!!!
