5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, beautiful song - love it, 23 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Golden (MP3 Download)
Such a beautiful song, so pleased it has been released as a single, as I loved it when Cliff sung it at his concerts, it is such an emotional song and Cliff sings it beautifully, so you feel like he is singing it to just you. I hope he sings it at his concerts, it will certainly create a few tears.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Rock n Roll CD, 17 Nov. 2013
This CD takes Cliff back to his roots. He was the first real British Rock and Roll singer and this album takes you back in time to the Rock and Roll era.

Rip It Up, Little Richard's classic is fantastic
Brian Hyland's Sealed with a Kiss, Cliff gives a wonderful rendition of this classic song
Johnnie Ray's Such a Night and Elvis Presley classic - Teddy Bear and Too Much rocks
Fabulous is one I didn't know, original Charlie Grace but this is a great rocky song
Buddy Holly's Rave On and Johnny B Goode great.

These are just a few of my favourite tracks on the album. If you like Rock and Roll, this CD is a must.

Buy it for Christmas for your Mom or Gran if you are not from the Rock and Roll era, but after listening to it, you may want to keep it for yourself.

This is a tribute to some of the great Rock n Roll songs and Cliff does them justice, with a great set of backing musicians recorded live in Nashville.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent album with Cliff and Icons of Soul - Buy it or you will regret it, 19 Oct. 2011
Many of the tracks on the album have been written by Lamont Dozier and Beau Dozier, Lamont's son. Lamont Dozier has written and produced 54 No. 1 hits for the Supremes, Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, Freda Payne and many others. He has been given credit for being one of the primary architects of the Motown Sound and has received the Jonny Mercer Award in 2009 which is the highest praise a songwriter can have. He has continued writhing hits for Alison Moyet, Aretha Franklin, Simply Red, Phil Collins, Boy George, Eric Clapton, Kanye West, Joss Stone, Solange Knowles, Dave Stewart and George Benson.
The album was produced by Ashford and Simpson and Lamont Dozier.

Cliff far exceeds himself with this album. This is the best album for a long while and although he has never ventured into soul sounds, Cliff's voice blends perfectly with the iconic soul singers on this album. There are just too many good tracks on this album; it is difficult to say which tracks I favour.

Saving a Life with Freda Payne of Band of Gold fame is more Tamla than soul, but is a good, catchy, first track to the album.

Go on and Tell Him with Dennis Edwards and the Temptations Review has a haunting guitar backing and excellent backing vocals to this slow moving Boys to Men type song with an great catchy sound.

Do you Ever - A duet with Brenda Holloway. This is a slow romantic ballad with perfect vocals from Brenda Holloway

Teardrops - The Womak and Womak classic reinvented with vocals from Candi Staton. Funky updated version.

When I was your Baby with Roberta Flack. Lots of emotion in this one.

Are you Feeling Me - Deniece Williams. This is absolutely fabulous with the backing vocals giving a haunting sound to the wonderful harmonising sound of Cliff and Deniece. My favourite track. If you don't listen to the rest of the album, listen to this one the whole way through.

Oh How Happy - Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jnr, lead singers of the 5th Dimension. With hits including Aquarius, Let the Sunshine In, Up Up and Away. A great gospel style of song written by Edwin Starr.

Every Piece of my Broken Heart with Valerie Simpson - Cliff starts in Falsetto on this track and Valerie Simpson provides vocals. The husband and wife team Ashford and Simpson penned many hits including "Aint no mountain high enough" and "Reach out and touch". A fast moving track.

How We Get Down with Russell Thompkins and the The New Stylistics, is a soulful sound with good harmonies between the artistes.

This Time With You with Candi Staton - Another great classic track

Don't say you love me - A fast moving funky type of dance track, that gets you moving.

She looked good - with Dennis Edwards, The Temptations Review and Lamont Dozier. This is a very fast moving funky sound. Excellent track.

I'm Your Puppet with Percy Sledge. Classic song originally sung by James and Bobby Purify but this time sung with a classic soul icon of "When a Man Loves a Woman" fame

Always and Forever with Billy Paul Me and Mrs Jones) - Perfect vocals done by Cliff, but an excellent end to the song as Billy Paul ad-libs.

Birds of a Feather - What can I say, this is class with Peabo Bryson which starts slow with instrumental undertones and then just picks up and races on as a soul sound dance track. It makes you want to get up and dance.

The finale to an excellent album, you just need to listen and judge for yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Brass Love Cliff you will love this, 4 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Bold As Brass (Audio CD)
If you are looking for something "Cliffy" and "popsy" then don't buy this. This is a CD that is what it says on the box "Bold as Brass". This is Cliff doing something completely different and he does it well. It can't be compared to Rod Stewart, Cliff doesnt have the gravelly voice to compete, but he has selected a good selection of the old standards that match his voice perfectly. What has to be considered, is it is very difficult for someone to match their voice to the Brass sound, and buying, listening and also seeing Cliff at the RAH, I believe that he has succeeded. It is different and if you are expecting anything like Summer Holiday on here, then don't buy it. His voice has improved dramatically from the early days when Cliff started singing Rock and Roll songs and he puts this to the test in this great production and has certainly released something completely different.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD, 4 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Olly Murs (Audio CD)
This is a great singalong, catchy album from Olly. I can imagine him dancing along with it when he sings some of the songs. A lot of the tracks are Reggae style and a very good album if you like this style of music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD, 4 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Wide Awake (Audio CD)
This is an excellent CD by Joe. He proves he has the voice to sing different tracks in varying scales including very high pitch. Expected to hear more slow tracks, but was surprised that most of the tracks are very fast moving and catchy songs. Once heard a few times, you cannot stop singing them. Really good buy and would recommend to anyone who likes this type of catchy, commercial music.

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS ALBUM IS A MUST BUY, 26 Oct. 2007
This review is from: Something's Goin' On (Audio CD)
Ignore the comments from Sound Advice and look at the other 30 comments. This album is fantastic and Cliff at his best, not middle of the road, but every song is completely different and country music it isnt. It has a diverse range from ballads to soulful to rocky. There may be a hint of country in there because it was recorded in Nashville. Cliff moves on and if he had stayed with the "glory days" he would have had a long lingering death, but Cliff moves on and this album has shown how he can progress musically. Sounds Advice obviously has an adverse allergy to anything relating to Cliff Richard.
