5.0 out of 5 stars Every one a gem! 9 Oct 2008
By Jan T
Format:Audio CD
Including 3 number ones and several less familiar numbers, this compiliation is a must for any David Essex fan, even if, like myself, you've got all the tracks scattered on various other cd's.
These 19 original recordings (not a cast CD) could be mistaken for being written and recorded purely for the musical of the same name, (despite some numbers being over 30 years old), such is the ingenious way these songs have been chosen and integrated into the storyline!
This new musical gives these legendary and timeless classics a new lease of life.
Some of my personal favourites include 'Dangerous', 'Here We are Altogether', 'He Noticed Me', 'Pretty Thing', 'I'll Call Ya (She's Leaving Home)' and 'You're In My Heart', none of which were released as singles, but are now, through this album, reaching out to a wider audience.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very little 'Fun of the Fair' 29 Mar 2009
Format:MP3 Download
Don't get me wrong, if you wanted a Best of David Essex CD, then this would have a 5 start rating, as there are some great songs in there.

My main gripe with this CD, is that I bought it in order to re-live the stage show which I'd seen, and thoroughly enjoyed, a few weeks earlier. However, apart from sharing the same tracks as those in the show, there is very little else relating to the show (except of course, the cover, which you don't get on a download !).

The songs are performed in a different order to the show, but the more serious problem is that they are not performed either by the characters who performed them in the show, or in the style of the show. On the whole, I believe they are the original David Essex recordings.

The classic example of this is the brilliant 'Winters Tale' Now I love the song, and I love David's rendition of it. But in the show it is brilliantly performed, in a very different context, by a female character, Rosa. In the stage performance Louise English makes it her own in a way that I wouldn't have believed possible.

So I wouldn't recommend this if you want to evoke memories of All the Fun of the Fair. Some of the fun ? Maybe.

I went to see this at the theatre recently. It was fab! David Essex sounded as good as ever. ( Could look as good, if he shaved his beard off and grew his hair!!)This is a great CD for your collection. Takes you back in time!

In my younger years was a big David Essex Fan...... Saw the show and enjoyed it although thought his voice was a bit rough. Bought this and thought it was great obviously had tuned his voice a bit for the CD

Memories of the 70's when we saw him quite a few times when he was touring. Seen him again more recently in a concert with Showaddywaddy, David Cassidy and The Osmonds. (It was the wife who wanted to go - honest!)
