I must admit right away,that I stand in awe of someone who starts out as a rather gauche comic actor with idiot-like tendencies,who then progresses to a professional daredevil comic genius,who then utterly trasforms his image into that of an outstanding singer.
And of course,I am speaking about Michael Crawford. When I first read that Andrew Lloyd Webber had signed up Crawford as his male singing lead in his forthcoming West End musical (some years ago now),I fell about laughing...and of course,I was utterly wrong. By sheer dint of hard work and effort,Michael Crawford proved to be a veritable sensation!!!
Over the years he has gone from strength to strength,bringing great depth and understanding to his vocal interpretations. And this CD is no exception. His vocal range effortessly encompasses the quite wide range of songs on this CD,and the quality of sound is quite remarkable.
This double disc is outstanding value,and will bring the listener pleasure for years to come.
