I'm sitting here listening to EFX, the Las Vegas show Michael Crawford started in the MGM Grand.

Listening to Michael as Houdini singing with Bess.

Really a wonderful moment. Anyone else here heard it? Smile

Yes, I have it and I have all of Michel Crawford's CD. He has such a powerful voice. Someday I hope to see him in person.

EFX has some nice cuts, especially the one where the kid does the magic. I saw our local SYM use it while a young 9 year old performed to it. It was a mini-play and I enjoyed it very much.

Using voiced over music may not be as good as straight orchestrated music. The "Do the Twist" by Chubby Checker works well with the Twister illusion is an exception. There are many other exceptions.

EFX is nice but I like to listen to Richard Waynes music alot and then Lance Burton's CD, and then a variety of songs from Pink Floyd, Metallica, Niverna, Cher, some trance, some classical, and some oldies but goodies. I like "Good Morning Vietnam" and a new kids one called "Safety Rock."

Not bad for a guy who is 57.

Thanks, I was beginning to wonder if anybody had read this.

By "the kid does the magic" are you referring to "The Magic All Around You?" - That's actually Michael as Merlin teaching Arthur about the world and defending him against Morgan LaFey. I can't remember what the title of the Houdini number is off the top of my head.
