Prom Night: Live at the Royal Albert Hall

by The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain

I ordered this DVD as a gift, to be sent to America. As a result of a mix-up, it was sent to me instead. It was Christmas time and a bit too late to go to the post office, so the disc stayed with me. Inexplicably, we watched its first half in the early hours of the New Year 2010 in Edinburgh leaving its second half until last week. The highlights include Psycho Killer, now-classic rendition of Life on Mars (aka My Way) and Melange, “which reveals how all the key rock songs are variants of one theme” (something of UOGB’s speciality). The winner, however, is the song which does not feature a single ukulele: Pinball Wizard.

The DVD is only available from UOGB’s website.
