I've been a fan of Tom Lehrer my entire life. I have all of his music on CDs, but this collection with the added video was a must-have. And I wasn't disappointed. Bits of the concert are on YouTube (which is what inspired this production in the first place) but the quality is far from great, and only a few songs are there. It adds another level to the humor to be able to see him smirk and waggle his eyebrows suggestively. He is a truly great performer, and for anyone, fan or not, I recommend this collection. The music is witty and his delivery is fantastic.
