 Greatest Hits Videoke       

To us, John is not only a great singer/songwriter. He also is a great entertainer and an important teacher. And that is something which he even more proved in concerts and interviews than on records. If we wouldn't have had the help of friends all over the world, for a long time going to a concert or watching an interview when he was in Holland would be the only way to experience that, since there wasn't anything available on video.
But times are changing. Nowadays there are a few movies of John available on video, there are quite some video tapes from the Windstar symosia, there was the Portrait video, the Wildlife video and now also the Karaoke video. We're very pleased with all of them. But of course we still hope for more.
The karaoke video has two parts: the first part is a registration of a 1994 concert in Melbourne, Australia. On this part John sings 14 songs, and introduces most of the songs by telling about the inspiration for the songs. The second part of the video John and his band play 16 songs, but for the singing you have to take care yourself. To help you with that, the lyrics of the songs are shown on the TV.
