5.0 out of 5 stars Black and White Magic 23 July 2000
Format:Audio CD
Hardly anyone meeting Winfired Atwell could easily shake the expectation that the powerhouse entertainer of stage and television would inevitably be an extrovert. Yet there she was, reflective and shyly charming, listening attentively, offering her thoughts in that beautifully accented voice only when good manners and courtesy deemed it appropriate. She was more than just "Wonderful Winnie" who played the piano as if she had an extra pair of hands. She was a rare person who believed the best in people, while determinedly disbelieving her own publicity. She trusted the language of music to express her joyous love affair with the piano,and in so doing gave the world much captivating amd tasteful music so well captured on this CD. A "Best Of" compilation by this superb entertainer is long overdue. From the opening copper-bell tones of the "other piano"(the honky-tonk instrument salvaged from a Battersea curiosity shop for fifty shillings which would log up a half a million touring miles - without once being tuned), here are the classic original recordings. There are her best-loved ragtime numbers, a little boogie woogie, and rhythm numbers like the irrssistible "Calcutta". For good measure, a silver cascade of backing strings is brought in on the big concert numbers like Rachmaninov's 18th. Variation on a Theme by Paganinni. It is easy to see how this delightful virtuosity must have lit up the musical landscape during the years of post-war austerity when Winnie became the first, and to this day the only, pianist to routinely score top-ten hits in the pop music charts.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best of Winifred Artwell. 9 April 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Much like my sole fellow reviwer on this page at present, you have to be getting on a bit to even recall the Winifred Atwell name, let alone remember her music. However, millions of people know of her most famous track without even realising it; as 'The Black and White Rag' has been, (or perhaps was?), the 'Pot Black' snooker TV theme for more years than many of us still have teeth. To those of us aged 50+ by now, we remember her piano playing from the radio, as she was a huge favourite in the late 50's and early '60's. My mother had several of her 78's, and we would sit there as a family, smiles on our faces, listening to this fabulous player, who was to the piano what Jimi Hendrix was to the guitar - an innovative genius. Okay, so the kids might moan when you play this CD, but hell, it won't do them any harm. Twenty excellent tracks which every piano lover should own.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute classic! 7 Aug 2001
Format:Audio CD
I spent ages trying to find some Winifred Atwell music - am I galad I made the effort! Apart from taking me back 40 years (she was one of my dad's favourites) I think some of the track are absolutely superb.

I just didn't like it. I found it boring in comparison to others of Winifred's I have heard. Not good.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best of Winifred Atwell 23 July 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a great CD with some of the best of Winifred Atwell's piano playing. I have always enjoyed this music but never admitted it to myself for some reason. I grew up in the in the 50's and 60's and these sounds are familiar. I am very pleased with it and I am to purchase more of Winifred's sounds. I play it a lot and my granddaughter also enjoys the happy and lively sounds from the album, she is 3yrs old. In my house, my music is what goes sometimes!

Not the Attwell sound that Mum expected - tinny like a child's piano. I must try another CD next time!
