Awesome!
4 April 2004 | by (Logan, West Virginia) – See all my reviews

I have waited forever for this video collection. With the exception of "Christmas at Ground Zero", this showcases Al's genius.

I have been a fan of his since the beginning, and I have had the pleasure of attending one of his concerts (9/99, Ashland, Kentucky). I just think it is a shame that he is not releasing a legitimate video from the "Poodle Hat" CD (Which, by the way, is not one of his best works.). My favorite video is probably "One More Minute". The choreography is hilarious.

If you are an "Al-coholic", this collection is for you. Then go see him in concert; you won't be disappointed. I just don't want to have to wait another 4 years for his next CD.
