Format: Audio CD
Matt Monro was a regular feature of the British singles charts between 1960 and 1965, after which he had only one other UK hit (And you smiled, a top thirty entry in 1973, not released on an original album, only on compilations). Despite the lack of hits, Matt's music remained popular with adult audiences. So there are none of Matt's own hits on the two albums presented here, but you'll find plenty of familiar (and not-so-familiar) songs via Matt's covers of pop songs from the sixties and early seventies, as well as older songs from the Great American Songbook.

The first album, For the present, dates from 1973 and includes First of May (one of my favorite Bee Gees songs), Michelle (the Beatles classic that provided the Overlanders with their only hit) and Singing in the rain, an old movie song that provided Cliff Edwards with an American number one hit in 1929. Elsewhere on the album, the songs are not so familiar but they are equally interesting. Among them are Didn't we (written by Jimmy Webb, who achieved fame via hits he provided for Glen Campbell and others), I am (written by prolific songwriters Roger Cook and Roger Greenaway who wrote may famous sixties hits, but this wasn't one of them) and other songs that suit Matt ideally such as Till then my love and Sarah's coming home.

24 tracks from one of Britain's much loved and sadly missed singers. EMI have done an excellent job of digitally remastering these two 70's albums into one superb CD collection. In my opinion Matt's covers of "When You Wish Upon A Star" and Didn't We?" stand out here - what breath control and phrasing this man had. To top it all, the hard to find track "The Me I Never Knew" finally sees the light of day on CD - fantastic! Thank you EMI - now let's see some more of Matt's albums released this way please!
