Here we have the Irish superstar introducing 24 different videos beginning from the first video he ever made in 1986 of "I Need You", which he admits now makes him cringe with laughter! Daniel is honest enough to admit that he has not found miming for video footage very easy, but as the DVD progresses you can see how he has improved over the years. There are many fascinating introductions to how some of these films were made,ie, "I Just Want To Dance With You" on Top Of The Pops includes the rehearsal, also recording a Christmas album in the Irish summer was quite hilarious for him, this resulted in "The Gift" complete with powdered snow! "Give A Little Love" and the story of his involvement with a Romanian orphanage is particularly very moving. There are several gospel songs here including "Footsteps" from his very first gospel album, "Morning Has Broken", "Light A Candle" and "You Raised Me Up" with many precious memories from the Millennium Songs Of Praise recorded by the BBC in Cardiff. With a running time of nearly two hours, the DVD represents superb value for money, and will no doubt be snapped up by fans of the Irish country crooner.
