I first heard Clifford T Ward being played in a music store in Cambridge. I went straight to the counter, asked what they were playing and bought the record. Five years ago I bought this CD and was no less contented with my purchase. Clifford T Ward died on 18 December 2001, leaving behind an archive of beautifully crafted songs. Most of the best of these are available on this album, although there are none of his later songs from albums such as "Both of Us", the album I bought and which was released on a different label is sadly no longer available. This album reminds me of Dudley Moore's comment in 10 bemoaning the lack of appreciation of songs with a carefully crafted lyric and a beautiful melody. Almost every song is filled with a poetry that would be hard to find in any other contemporary album.

It is strange the effect that fate has on our all our lives. Manufactured artists and groups go from strength to strength whilst hugely talented musicians, such as Clifford T Ward, are all but ignored by the music industry and public at large.
Listening to this compilation CD, I find it hard to believe that the recordings are decades old. The quality of the lyrics, the orchestration and sheer musicianship just poured forth from my loudspeakers. Some tracks like "Jig - Saw Girl" have your feet tapping to the fabulous rhythms, whilst others, like "The Way of Love" seem to act like a soothing touch, massaging and relaxing the senses.
All music collections have CD's bought on impulse, played once and then forgotten languishing on the shelf gathering dust. This is not such a CD, with new joys to be discovered as each track passes and to be played over and over again.
Whilst it is only early 2002, I suspect that I will not buy a better CD this year. Truly an outstanding addition to any collection. - Unreservedly recommended.

If you have any romance in your heart, then do not hesitate - buy this CD. It is a truly unforgettable collection of heartwrenching words & haunting melodies. The best of his songs are all here. But be prepared. You may need to reach for the handkerchiefs. His songs really are powerful enough even to make me cry! I'm old enough to admit it now although back in 1973 I would have denied it. Why CTW is not more popular is one of life's great mysteries. Find out for yourself just how good these songs are. Then tell your friends.

Bought this album about a year ago and only really knew "Gaye" from my distant youth. I know Clifford T Ward wrote quite a few songs for Cliff Richard in the early 70's - but don't be put off by that ! This included "When two worlds collide" unfortunately not on this album. I also heard "Homethoughts from abroad" when driving / commuting to work one morning listening to the radio - I almost had to stiffle the tears. Clifford T Ward has a way of simplifying complex emotions into everyday situations, but somehow the power and depth of his feelings always permeate through the songs.
My daughter (10) loves the "Dubious Circus" song, but whatever your taste in music, the arrangements and simplicity of words cannot fail to impress even the ex-punks amongst us.
Considering how some careers have managed to survive over the decades since his death, I find it hard imagine why his musical legacy remains the opium of the few.

A superb cross section of the works of this brilliant musician and singer/songwriter. From the thought provoking 'Sad Affair' to the singalong 'Jigsaw Girl' and 'Scullery'. What a rare talent. Sadly missed.

Back in the early '70's I bought CTW's 1st 4 albums and as I recall they are pretty well represented here,although the emphasis,unsurprisingly, is on his best album and the one that broke him,Home Thoughts...

There are some great tracks here,happy,sad,funny,thoughtful,although the absence of Cold Wind Blowing is a curious omission,mostly from Home Thoughts...and Mantlepiece and they show that although,perhaps,like many artists,his talent was limited,within those limitations he left a legacy that easily fills this cd and could probably fill another one too.His work was very,very english in the best possible way.Unashamedly so.Like early Caravan or Kevin Ayers and Robert Wyatt or even Gilbert O Sullivan (despite the fact that he's Irish).He didn't try for that mid-atlantic drawl or american imagery,but,rather like The Divine Comedy or Pulp,he stuck resolutely to his native country and it's poetic and music hall traditions.Home Thoughts naturally quotes Robert Browning and that's exactly where he's coming from - his work is Romantic in every possible way.Highly recommended.

This compilation from Clifford T Ward's three early best-selling albums contains some of his finest music. Intriguing, intelligent lyrics compliment some of the most beautiful melodies ever written. No wonder that some of his best songs have been covered by great artists. CTW is amusing, full of pathos, wistful and edifying - but whatever his mood, you can rest assured his skills as a storyteller-songwriter will enthrall. If you haven't got 'Home Thoughts' 'Mantlepieces' and 'Escalator' then definitely buy this album. Let's hope all his work will be released on CD before too long. Check out his excellent web site, by the way.
