I am one of those people who cannot understand why Cilla has squandered her talent appearing on Blind Date for nearly 20 years with the result that she is not generally remembered for her considerable and excellent singing talent which brought her such critical success in the 60s and 70s. However, I hope with the release of this and the double album "Cilla" and "Cilla sings a Rainbow", a wider audience will understand what us fans have missed over the last 20 years.
I have the original LP so I am eager to hear the tracks digitally re-mastered. Also the inclusion of some of the singles from the 70s is an added bonus as songs such as "He was a writer" is not included on any of Cilla's current CD releases, as far as I'm aware.
One small issue. I'm not sure why "Conversations" and "Surround yourself" were included as bonus tracks as these are well represented elsewhere on other greatest hits compilations. It would have been nice if this special edition could have included a few more of the more obscure singles for example "Easy in your Company" which I believe was the theme music to Cilla's T.V. comedy series in the 70s and dare I mention "Surprise Surprise" which was also released as a single. Still we can only live in hope that more of her back catalogue will be released to mark her 40th anniversary in show business next year. Particular favourite albums with me are "Junk" and "Day by Day" from the early 70s.
For those of you who do not know her work really well, then this will serve as an excellent introduction to why she was one of our best female singing artistes.

There's something about Cilla's persona that sadly has almost had her airbrushed out of the sixties legion of female artists. Dusty, Lulu and Pet Clark seem to have this iconic status when musical reviews take place. I am not disputing their rights to their status, although I think that if Lulu had not weathered so well in the looks department, her place up with the others would have struggled given the "Boom Bang etc" stage of her career.

However, because Cilla became such a familiar and successful face on mainstream TV entertainment during the late 70s onwards, people have in some cases forgotten where she came from originally.

A singer that had in all essence little more than a powerful but distinctive voice, Cilla made some great recordings that stamped the feel of the charts at the time. Although limited in her vocal abilities, unlike the supremely gifted Dusty, she made the most of what she had and nailed some absolute classics.

When I listen to tracks such as "Anyone", "My World" & "Alfie" they are heartbreakingly poignant songs. The performances are so sincere; they just rip your heart apart. Others such as "Step inside" and "Surround Yourself" are also tremendous but it is the wonderful "Conversations" that gets me every time.

This is an excellent collection that truly presents Cilla at her best. Just like Pet Clark's PYE Collection CD, it not only gives you what you want to hear in their original form, but they also give you the feel of Cilla at her peak.

Like a good coffee table book, this is a CD that you pick up now and again and fall in love with the material on offer, time & time again.

If you've forgotten what she contributed to pop music a few decades ago, buy this and listen once again. First and foremost she was a successful recording artist before she became Mrs Saturday Night TV

Born 'Priscilla Marie Veronica White' in May 1943 in Liverpool of course she carved out a career during what we remember
as the Mersey-Beat music explosion of the fairly early sixties.
Now known as 'Cilla Black' she first entered the U.K with 'Love Of The Loved' (Chart 35 1963) her follow up, her cover of
'Dionne Warwick's' - 'Anyone Who Had A Heart' (Chart '1' also 1963) the following year another number one 'You're My
World' and 'It's For You' (Chart '7') the following year 1965 her cover of the 'Righteous Brothers' Hit - 'You've Lost that Loving
Feeling' peaked at number two for 'Cilla' during that year she did have two further chart entries which included 'Love's Just A
Broken Heart' (Chart '5')
I believe it was 1965 when i saw her live at a local venue, i went in to see the early show, the theatre was probably on half full
for the first house, 'Cilla's' bubbly personality that was to stand her in good stead later in her career shone through, she actually
closed the first half of the show, seeing the theatre with so many empty seats, she told us all to move up a few rows, well, for
me that was great, i was that much closer when watching 'The Everly's' who Topped the Bill
In 1966 'Cilla' continued to chart with numbers such as 'Alfie' (Chart '9') and 'Don't Answer Me' and 'A Fool Am I' (These two
not on-board)
Among some of 'Cilla's' other hits on-board 'Step Inside Love' (Chart '8' 1967) 'Surround Yourself With Sorrow' (Chart '3' 1969)
'Something Tells Me' (Something's Gonna Happen Tonight) (Chart '3' 1971) the latter was to prove her last Top 30 success.
Of course 'Cilla's' personality endeared her to T.
