Product Description

CD Description

Julian Ovenden, the established charismatic star of stage and screen is already well known from playing many leading roles in high profile television shows; perhaps most familiarly known for his role as the Spitfire pilot Andrew Foyle in the critically acclaimed drama-series, Foyle’s War. His debut album is a collection of songs that take the listener back to the golden era of 1960s London, including "It Hurts To Say Goodbye", "The Last Waltz", "You’ve Made Me So Very Happy" and "When She Loved Me" from Toy Story.

Product Description

Julian's roles in musical theatre have included Merrily We Roll Along Grand Hotel Marguerite Annie Get Your Gun and Death Takes a Holiday.
The established charismatic star of stage and screen is already well known from playing many leading roles in high profile television shows perhaps most familiarly known for his role as the Spitfire pilot Andrew Foyle in the critically acclaimed drama-series Foyle&rsquos War. Julian has conquered both the West End and Broadway and not forgetting he was also the &lsquoDiet Coke&rsquo pin-up in 1997.
But now Julian Ovenden is set to release his debut album entitled: &lsquoIf You Stay&rsquo &ndash a collection of songs that take the listener back to the golden era of 1960s London. Julian says he wants it to be &ldquoA CD that one might put into a Ford Focus and suddenly the car is transformed into an Aston Martin.&rdquo
The album &lsquoIf You Stay&rsquo includes heart-warming tracks: &lsquoIt Hurts To Say Goodbye&rsquo &lsquoThe Last Waltz&rsquo &lsquoYou&rsquove Made Me So Very Happy&rsquo and a beautiful and moving rendition of a track taken from his son&rsquos favourite film Toy Story &ndash &lsquoWhen She Loved Me&rsquo.

By C. FULLER TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This is a good example of a studio album being put together with the aim of pleasing everyone. In reality it is something of a "Curates Egg" and yet it has charm and the choice of songs not at odds with Julian Ovenden's voice or ability. As a trained singer and actor of vast experience he can turn his hand/voice to a wide range of styles. This album attempts to demonstrate exactly that. I have some favourites "The Last Waltz"; "Up, up and Away"; "You've made me so very happy". I listened to the whole album through headphones and felt that the sound balance between Julian's voice and the orchestra does not do him justice as he sounds too distant or too surrounded. ( particularly tracks 2 & 13) also the bass seemed rather high at times. Modern recordings should be perfect and have clarity and balance. I like vocals up front with the orchestra to left and right and some of these songs would have benefitted from that delivery. Even so I would rate this 3 stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars No No No Julian 27 April 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Just like 'Peggy B' I was really looking forward to this CD. I'm very disappointed. The songs do not suit Julian's voice at all, in fact "The Last Waltz" really made me cringe. Stick to the more powerful songs Julian, I really loved you on the BBC Proms. Sorry!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Too much noise! 25 May 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If You Stay Julian Ovenden has a beautiful voice, and I was really looking forward to this CD. However, I feel that his voice is lost due to the backing - too much noise in the background - drums bashing etc. -sometimes his voice seemed to play second fiddle. I want to hear Julian Ovenden with the appropriate backing for his voice. No matter that this was a 60's & 70's album, it did not do his great talent justice. Please don't overpower a beautiful voice with this "rock" type (I don't know what else to call it!) band music. We so seldom get to hear a voice like this and I felt it was drowned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classy 30 April 2012
By BarryN
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a cracker of a record. Slightly old school but with serious high end production values and brilliant vocal performance. Highly recommended for anyone who loves that 60's sound.

3.0 out of 5 stars Horrible Choice of Songs 16 Sep 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I read the reviews before buying the album so I knew I might be disappointed and I certainly was. I saw Julian Ovenden in Marguerite twice and he was incredible! He was brilliant in the Proms this year and previously so I was looking forward to hearing his voice even if the songs weren't great. I won't be listening to the album after the first play. What an awful choice of old mostly old pop songs. My husband said the first few tracks sounded like karioke. There was just one song that actually sounded like it was Julian singing. I do hope Finding Neverland goes ahead and a recording is made - I'll be there!

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh dear! 30 Aug 2012
By S24
Format:Audio CD
Oh dear ! Why do singers with GREAT Show Song voices just want to be another Pop singer ?

Stick to what you're best at Julian, and leave the ubiquitous pop stuff to the lesser talents.

Broadway has such a HUGE back catalogue of songs that haven't been done to death, so, why the Pop stuff ???

Disappointed with your choice of songs here.

Sorry !
