This is a very enjoyable album as it is Liberace's best bits recorded with a live audience. If you have never heard Liberace, this will give you a taste of what a live concert was like with audience reaction and Liberace's introductions before each number. He plays "Mack the Knife" in the style of Mozart and other classic composers, then speeds it up to a double-time Samba. There is the classic Boogie Woogie with audience reaction. Liberace even makes comments about an unnamed London critic and other critics "I've heard some of those stories about me. Why they gave me ideas that I never even knew I had!" Some of this was recorded at the London Palladium. You can't listen to this without a smile on your face and a few laughs out loud. As of 2/4/08 it will be 21 years since Liberace has been gone. He brought so much joy to audiences around the world for over 40 years! He was a one of a kind showman, please do yourself a favor and introduce yourself to the world of Liberace with this album.

Liberace - Mack the Knife

Here is Liberace, Mr. Showmanship performing Mack the Knife on his 1969 television series.

this man is a piano playing machine! The ability to take a song and play it in different styles is by far one of the most amazing abilities I can imagine. Sure somebody can play a song really well, but can you play it in 5 different styles? haha

Liberace -Tico Tico

1969
Whatever, he was loved by many and was the highest paid entertainer from the 1950's thru the 1970's making more than Elvis or Frank Sinatra. Enough said, while the made fun of him, he laughed all the way to the bank.
