I have seen her recently, and am very disturbed by that video.

When I saw her, she was in good voice - truly the best I've heard her sound since before her vocal cord surgery. I was impressed.

She certainly did not sound like that.

It really worries me. I'm hoping she's on some medications that are conflicting or something.

(On a side note, she has said in the past that, during the years when she was really losing the battle, she wouldn't be drunk onstage. She claimed her problems were after the show, and the inability to go on the next day. But she also rewrites her past, so maybe that isn't true...)

It worries me...

On the main board, a devoted Liza-fan suggests that maybe the tape was "tampered with"...

I guess that we were not amused.

tampered with? hmmmm.... now that you mention it, it does kinda sound that way.

what strikes me as odd is her phrasing. she'll slow down a lines, drag it out, then throw off the end. that's not her usual phrasing. that combined with an apparently increased slurring... hmmm...
