Having already reviewed Rockferry and giving it a glowing review all I wish to say is that until it was replaced with this Deluxe version it was still the most played CD in my car (much to the annoyance of others who aren't as fond of her music as I am!)

The 7 additional tracks on the deluxe version continue in that distinctive Duffy modern take on the 60s style with the perfect mix of upbeat songs and heartfelt melodies.

Having played the additional tracks a few times now I like them all but my personal favourites are Rain On Your Parade (already released as a single), Stop which has a great catchy tune and Fool For You - a hauntingly mellow track which I keep finding myself humming.

Please Stay - Her cover of the Burt Bacharach song bought a smile to my face as I fondly remember a previous version played and played by me back in the 70's as a pre-teenager wearing my tartan trews lol!

I wish record companies would stop re-releasing albums as deluxe editions with just a few extra tracks, though in this instance the 7 additional tracks are worth every penny in my opinion.

If you like Duffy you'll love this - I certainly do!

I already have the original single-disc version of ROCKFERRY and I really like it. Before listening to this 'Deluxe Edition' I half-expected the seven new songs on the 25-minute-long second disc to be the crud that wasn't good enough to have been included when the first album was released. Well, that's just not true at all - the new songs are good enough to have been released as a stand-alone album, of that I am in no doubt. So this Deluxe variation is fantastic value.

I like all the tracks but I think I like the opening one 'Rain on your Parade' the best, which is to be released as a single. The style of the songwriting is just like the single-disc album, simply carrying on where that one left off. If you loved that, you'll love this.

The second track 'Fool for You' and the third 'Stop' could also be released as singles, in my opinion. They're great songs, all of the first three tracks being up-tempo in much the same way that 'Mercy' is.

The fourth track 'Oh Boy' is the first slow song although it's quite short at just two and a half minutes. She sings -

"If you ever find,
That your peace of mind,
Is shattered in so many ways and
I find my feet
Down on lonely street,
I'll be stood there waiting for you
Boy you got me."

Track five 'Please Stay' is a plaintive ballad and perhaps more than ever takes its inspirations from songs of this type from the mid 1960s, which is fine by me because I still think that the sixties was the best decade of them all for musical identity and creativity. Yes, it's possible to imagine Lulu singing this but then a moment later you realise that Duffy has a voice uniquely her own and the similarities are more coincidental than pre-meditated. That's my own take on it, anyway.

Relaxing, classy music that most people will love, one of the rare wonders in the musical world. This version is well worth the money if you have yet to buy the original album.

You may well be thinking why should we have to fork out more money for another CD of songs that would easily have fitted onto the first CD,and i can't argue with that.
However after loving the original release of this album,i decided as the deluxe edition is going cheap now,i'll take a chance and buy it,giving the original one to my dad.
I'm happy enough with that decission now,as the other tracks are very good,and though there are only seven,it is kind of like having 2 great short albums.
I admit i wasn't overly sure about RAIN ON YOUR PARADE on first few listens when it was played on the radio,but it started growing on me,and now i actually really like it. No i'm not just saying i like said song because i didn't want to feel i've wasted money,i really have become quite fond of it,and the other 6 songs on here are very DUFFY and very good too. I could run through them all and use various superlatives or i could just save time and say i like every one of them,which i honestly do.
Of course i was annoyed after buying the original and then finding it was to be re-released with more tracks on another CD,but even so,i can't fault it. I'm glad i bought the deluxe edition,as i like DUFFY,and i'd say if tempted,buy and enjoy.

After hearing Rain on Your Parade and Mercy, I knew I had to buy her album. The first time I listened to it, I wasn't really that keen on most of the songs. However, I don't think I'd really given it a chance. Because when I listened to it through again, listening properly this time around, I came to really love the album. There's nobody else out there with a voice quite like Duffy's.

The album shows an incredibly good range of music. There isn't one bad song on the whole album, and each song is very different from the last. Obviously, there's a range of the dance-style tracks like Mercy and Rain On Your Parade, but there are also belters like Rockferry, and slower songs like Distant Dreamer and Warwick Avenue. Duffy's really tried to incorporate a wide range of styles in this album that can suit any mood - I seem to find that there's a song to listen to whether I'm feeling sad, hyper or inspired. There's real soft easy listening, and there's also songs that you can't help tapping your foot to.

A truly unique and incredible album. Easily the best album I've ever bought, and I'll be pre-ordering her second the moment it comes up for release.

A must-have!!
