As someone faced with an hour-long commute every morning and evening, this 6-CD collection slipped perfectly into the magazine of my in-car CD player and kept me entertained for a whole week.
From the first track, which was flipped to give Cliff his first hit with "Move It", (It's amazing how many hits have started out as B-sides, such as "Girl Don't Come" by Sandie Shaw, "Maggie May" by Rod Stewart, "My Cherie Amour" by Stevie Wonder, and "Rock and Roll Part Two" by Gary Glitter. Do record industry people really know what they are doing? Don't answer that!) to the last, we see Cliff move through a series of cycles, going from Rock and Roll to Pop to "naff" and then back to Rock and Roll and to Pop again.
Initial highlights include most of disc 1 and up to track 17 on disc 2, "All My Love".
After this Cliff bobs up and down (mainly down), alternating many examples of the naff, such as "Congratulations", "Good Times" and "Flying Machine", with a few examples of the good, such as "Silvery Rain," and one or two examples of the profound, such as "With The Eyes Of A Child." This last track set a style that he has followed on occasions throughout his remaining career. Cliff also demonstrates an excellent affinity with Country and Western through "(You Keep Me) Hanging On" and "Honky Tonk Angel."
In 1976 Cliff's star rises dramatically with "Miss You Nights" and remains in the ascendant with a long string of strong rock, pop and ballads, which extends right up to the start of the new millennium with "The Millennium Prayer".

Cliff is probably the finest singer Britain ever produced. Listen to this collection in its entirety and you will find it extremely difficult to disagree.
This guy can sing:
- hard, beautiful, frenetic Rock & Roll
("Move It", "Living Loving Doll", "It'll Be Me".) He's been accused of being just another Elvis impersonator, I've heard many 60s singers who sound, I fear, like Elvis clones; mimicking that overused, irritating Elvis vibrato without the Elvis charm; but Cliff is nothing like that. Yes the influence is felt, particularly in "Dynamite" and "It'll Be Me" but his voice had its own unique texture; his higher notes had a tangy, fresh sweetness; his lower ones a haunting intensity; which comes out in most early recordings.
If you listen to this in its entirety you will only marvel; gape in awe; swoon at how effortlessly versatile Cliff adapts his great voice from genre to genre; how he can sing from bass to falsetto, hard or soft; how he can melt delicate vocals into a beautiful acoustic accompanies or belt out (melodically, mind), a full-throated blistering rock sound over harsh electric guitars or rich keyboard orchestrations; how he can soar to incredible heights with deep, heartfelt feeling in soul songs; how he can be fast, fun and funky in dance songs. He can outclass almost anyone in almost any genre.
In the late 60s and early 70s he went off-track; he produced chirpy but lightweight, throwaway pop ("Goodbye Sam Hello Samantha" and singalong oom-pah-pah gospel songs ("Good Times Better Times", "Big Ship".) Anyone could sing these songs. They couldn't bring out the magic of his voice. But there are some gems from that era too like "With The Eyes Of A Child". Cliff draws you in. The more songs you hear, the more you want.

Format: Audio CD
As the title of this collection indicates, it contains all Cliff's UK solo singles up to the time the set was compiled. Duets and EP tracks are excluded. Among the singles included here are many rarities, some of which didn't chart at all in the UK (he didn't have many of those, though he did have a lot of minor hits) - these include Honky tonk angel, which Cliff wishes he'd never recorded. At the time, he didn't know what a honky tonk angel was, and such a song doesn't fit his squeaky clean image, even though it's not the kind of song that would get banned by radio, even in 1974.
All the classics are here (up to April 2002 - he's not finished yet) including his UK number ones from Living Doll (summer 1959) to The millenium prayer - actually Auld lang syne sung to the tune of The Lord's prayer (December 2000). Cliff adapted his sound through the years to keep abreast of changing fashions in pop music. Generally, I prefer his sixties music - this was his most successful period, but it's also my favorite decade as far as pop music is concerned. Your favorites will depend on which pop era you like best.
His most popular songs of the seventies are probably Devil woman, Miss you nights and We don't talk anymore - these are the ones normally used in various artists compilations - while the eighties are probably best remembered for Mistletoe and wine. Both of these decades (and the nineties) are well represented by these and many other songs.
This six-CD set shows what a remarkable career Cliff has already had (and you could fill another CD with the duets). The only sadness is that he never made it in America - but he didn't need to.
