Sometimes in life a actor can translate from actor to musician & vice versa.

But this ain't one of them as John Levine vocal harmonies (Questionable) make William Shatners singing sound like classic Tom Jones Rock & Roll.

I have never heard anything quite like this & hope I never do again.

All those UNIT battles could've ended without casualty if only Sergeant Benton had sang to those pesky Daleks & other worldly monster's they would've kept away & never returned.

I need to go & lie down in a dark room & relax & listen to my 12" vinyl record of Doctor In Distress cause this Timelord needs a SOS.

In my professional life, I am forever trying to find ways for people to make their own personal dreams come true. I also have immense respect for anyone who can get up and sing a few numbers without (a) necking ten pints first or (b) shattering all the windows within a five mile radius. Consequently, I was very keen to listen to this work. I get the impression that this is something John Levene has probably wanted to do for many years and I am glad he has finally been able to do so.

There are some really lovely musical arrangements here, not least his version of 'The Lady In Red'. Mind you, in my personal opinion, anything that isn't the original of that particular number has to be an improvement on it. For one thing, John Levene is so much more pleasing on the eye. Does anyone else see more than a hint of Max Bygraves in that picture? No? Oh well, that must just be me then.

I do think that the pricing of this work is a little steep for what it is. I fear it may put off potential purchasers, given that they would presumably be more familiar with Mr Levene's work on 'Doctor Who'. I assume that's why there is that rather odd reference to Sergeant Benton in the title, despite the fact that character has no real relevance to this collection of music. Were this something comic, in the style of Jon Pertwee perhaps, I could understand it.

In terms of singing style, I would say that there is quite a lot of 'Cliff Richard' to be found here. No, no, no - wait! That's not as insulting as it may have sounded, honestly. They simply sound rather similar to me, that's all. In fact, if I close my eyes, I can almost see John Levene in my mind's eye, complete with roller-skates and a tight leather outfit. I'm not saying I particularly want to by the way, just that I can.
