Two phenomenal stars, one historic television event

(5 out of 5 stars)
"I already had this on a vinyl LP (picked up at a garage sale for a pittance--it has the CBS Television "eye" logo prominently on the label). I liked it so well I decided to upgrade to the CD version. Happy bonus: The CD includes material that wouldn't fit on the LP.
This many years after the original broadcast, some of the material is either trite or camp, depending on your viewpoint. But the rest of it is still brilliant and still entertaining, no apologies necessary. Either of these two legendary performers could easily have performed a one-person show that would have been amazing and wonderful, but the combined energy of these two stars amplifies both their wattage, making them shine even more brightly.
Now I'm considering getting the video of this performance (if it's still available). But the audio alone is still quite entertaining and eminently worth the space it's occupying on my iPod."
