Although not comparable with Matt's 130 song /5CD anthology THE COMPLETE SINGLES COLLECTION this compilation boasts twenty-five songs with PORTRAIT OF MY LOVE, SOFTLY AS I LEAVE YOU, FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE and BORN FREE amongst the included hits, so is obviously aimed towards the more casual buyer looking for a typical Monro collection. It certainly fills that need by adding UNCHAINED MELODY, FOR ALL WE KNOW and SPANISH EYES to the mix; not forgetting the television commercial-utilised THIS IS THE LIFE and THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM plus what I consider to be one of Matt's crowning achievements WHEN I FALL IN LOVE. However, EMI has also sneakily added the previously unreleased Bacharach/David opus I'LL NEVER FALL IN LOVE AGAIN as marketing bait to provide the necessary carrot to tempt his many admirers to fork out their pennies to grab a copy.

Bought this as Matt Monroe was so popular when my Mum & Dad married over 50 years ago. Mum & I decided to play a few of their songs at his funeral.
As I'm from a different generation, this is my first experience with Monroe and I found it very pleasant. Given the circumstances I'll be listening to it every now and again.
Fast delivery, good clear sound, all his best songs. Recommended :)

My wife has always liked the voice of Matt Monro and so this was a perfect present. . Most of his best known songs are on it and the remastered ones are excellent.He certainly had a very silky voice delivered in a relaxed style of singing. I never realised until researching him how big he was in the States one of the few Brits to make it over there especially given his style of singing . Seems though, yet again, that he owed most of his success to George Martin. What a music producer he was.

For my money, Matt Monroe was the best British singer of his generation and the songs he was given to sing were just magnificent.

Matt Monro is just amazing. Such clear diction and he never shouts. He has a smooth, lovely controlled voice and I love all the songs on this recording.

This was a gift for an older person but you don't have to be elderly to appreciate the smooth, silky voice of Matt Monro. His music is timeless and stirs the soul.
