I've always thought this performing tour outstanding. I've found more
than one LP recording extant. Both are good. HH had dinner with my folks
after a performance (which I couldn't attend, being 1600 miles away and
otherwise burdened). You will be somewhat comforted to know that HH is
off-stage as eminently likable as on. He says he has about 14 hours of
prepared performance to choose from, cut and paste, like a comedian.
Twain as a humorist was quite impressive. I'm not aware of a video
although I saw the television performance--and howled. The best version
of "My Old Ancestor Satan" was the TV version. If anyone DOES turn up
a video, please post info.
