My friend John, who introduced me to Lara's music a while ago, came over today with a brand new, unopened cd of Lara Fabian Live '98! He had purchased it on E-bay for me. Now I have an original, rather than a burned copy of it! So, of course, while watching my favorite race car driver (Matt Kenseth) make a very strong third place finish and keep his hopes alive to qualify for the Championship (must have been the voodoo) we listened to this great two-disc set! We commented on the great selection of songs that were chosen for this concert, and decided that no matter what she chose to sing it would probably be great! John told me stories of the band for this particular tour, Rick allison, and a number of things about many of the songs. He's kind of well-versed in Lara Fabian information! He promised to bring over some of the many Lara hard-to-find stuff that he has received from people all over the world. Anyway, it's a cool gift, and I'm grateful for it. From what he tells me, it is no longer in print. Although there are still copies available, it is becoming increasingly harder to find. Having one in my possession is kind of special! It was also a fun experience to sit and listen to this great music while learning more about Lara!

I agree! The excitement and the participation of the audience is really special, and not only makes for a great live recording, but also shows the listener just how much of a connection Lara makes with her fans. It is one of my favorites as well. For some reason, whenever I play this concert I become hooked on it for days!
