This three-disc set (two DVDs and an audio CD) by German dance band vocalist Max Raabe and his his Palast Orchester is a loving tribute to the musical culture of the Weimar Republic. Raabe's decidedly retro performances tend to be mildly ironic but not excessively ironic; that is true on the German songs as well as the English-language standards, which include Tin Pan Alley gems such as Cole Porter's "Just One of Those Things" and Irving Berlin's "Cheek to Cheek." Raabe comes across as someone who has a genuine affection for Weimar-era dance bands rather than someone who is mocking or ridiculing their quaintness. It should be noted that only disc one is an actual concert DVD; disc two is a documentary/interview DVD that describes the filming of the concert, while disc three is a 29-minute audio CD containing additional live material. And it should also be noted that Heute Nacht Oder Nie: Live in Berlin is a different release from the two-CD set Heute Nacht Oder Nie: Live in New York (which was recorded at Carnegie Hall in Manhattan in November 2007), although both releases use the same black-and-white photo of Raabe on their front covers. Raabe has built a sizable catalog along the way, and Heute Nacht Oder Nie: Live in Berlin is an absorbing document of his retro charms.
