40 GOLDEN GREATS was the first definitive compilation to gather Cliff Richard's biggest hits from his first three decades in music upon its initial release in 1978. This collection can also be observed as a musical autobiography of sorts, tracing his growth as a vocalist while remaining essentially the same.
Disc 1 features his rock 'n' roll years from 1958 to 1963. Most of his great rock 'n' roll moments are here, including "Move It" (his first hit), "Gee Whiz It's You," "Lucky Lips," his excellent cover of Jerry Lee Lewis' "It'll Be Me" and the Elvis-influenced "Nine Times Out of Ten." Some of Cliff's early movie recordings are on this disc as well, like "Livin' Doll" (his first UK #1 hit), "The Young Ones," "Summer Holiday," "Bachelor Boy" and "The Next Time." The rock-driven recordings feature the distinctive guitar picking from The Shadows, who would go on to be Britain's most successful rock 'n' roll group of the pre-Beatles era.
Disc 2 covers the period between 1964 and 1977, with Cliff further developing his craft and maturity as a vocalist. There are fewer uptempo rockers and more of the mellow pop ballads that have dominated his career ever since. The sublime "Visions" and the harmony-laden "Miss You Nights" stand out as flawless performances of well-conceived ballads. This disc also presents his foray into contemporary Christian and inspirational pop, with "Throw Down a Line," "Sing a Song of Freedom" and "Power to All Our Friends" appealing to a mainstream audience.

Format:Audio CD
I finally purchased this double CD after owning a vinyl copy for over 30 years, just to see what versions of the tracks I would get.

I was delighted, therefore, to find that: -

1) With one exception (The Young Ones), those tracks only ever mixed in mono (Living Doll, Move It etc.) are also presented here in proper mono, and not mono reprocessed to stereo. This is a big plus over the vinyl version which gave us the mono mixes overlaid with stereo effects that made Cliff and The Shads sound like they'd recorded their tracks in a shower booth. (Even some of the true early 60s stereo tracks on the vinyl version seemed to suffer from the "shower booth" effect.)

2) Some of the early tracks found on the vinyl release in mono reprocessed to stereo (Theme For A Dream, Do You Want To Dance, etc.) are now available in true stereo, i.e. they've used the genuine stereo masters for this release.

3) The real biggie for me is that this is the only Cliff CD compilation that I've found that uses the right take of "Bachelor Boy." It's presented here in discrete stereo, suggesting that it was mixed down onto two tracks prior to producing the mono mix. The vinyl version of 40 Golden Greats, the Singles Collection CD box set and The Whole Story double-CD all use a different take wherein Cliff gives us a meant-to-be-rousing "Yeeeeaaah" before he launches into the final chorus. This "Yeeeeaaah" wasn't there on the original single. The only other non-vinyl-single release that I have with the correct version on is a stereo vinyl re-issue of the "Summer Holiday" soundtrack LP.

On the downside, some of the masters used are a bit rough in quality, lacking in both the bass and the treble departments. I'll forgive this, however, because the upsides make the purchase so worthwhile and get right a load of things that even "The Singles Collection" gets so wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars 40 and then some!! 10 Aug 2007
Format:Audio CD
Whatever your thoughts on Cliff Richard, you can't deny that he knew a good song when he heard it and turned it into a piece of pop history.

The number of different styles registered in this superb selection is amazing. The infectious groove of "Move it", the heart breaking "Visions", the finger clicking "Do you want to dance", The sheer pop of "Throw down a line" right through to the insanely addictive "I could easily fall in love with you"................have I left anything out? Oh! About another 35 top tracks!

There are so many top tunes here that, like the Beatles, you tend to forget the sheer quality and quantity of his output. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a die hard Cliff fan, I only have the one CD and this is it. However, you can't put a foot wrong with this purchase.

A shame however, that "All my Love" a particular favourite of mine, isn't included. I suppose you can't put 4Ibs of sugar in a 3Ib bag!

Either way, if you're a fan, or like me an admirer of a lot of his work, this is a cracking buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cliff Richard 40 Golden Greats 4 April 2004

I have purchased this album 3 or 4 times now. I had the double album and have renewed the CD several times. It is probably my favourite album.
If you are a Cliff fan, especially if you are over 40, this is a wonderful way of reminiscing throughout his long career, and your own long life!
I intend never to be without it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Original Recordings with the true sound 6 July 2011
Format:Audio CD
This is a very fine compilation of Cliff's many hit records but the real special thing about this compilation is that it contains all the original mixes from the period they were originally released in other words the mastering is warm and full of depth as they were originally intended later compilations have been changed and sound brittle with added reverberation, this compilation is highly collectible with audiophiles at a very affordable price grab this while you can as I suspect we will never hear these tracks in such good authentic sound again as modern mastering doesn't suit these tracks.
