Bridge Over Troubled Water (Live Version)
Bridge Over Troubled Water (Live Version)
Price: £0.99

4.0 out of 5 stars but still a good showcase for Roberta's voice, 17 Nov. 2014
Not as moving as the recorded version from Quiet Fire, but still a good showcase for Roberta's voice.

This is Rufus at his commercial best. Lovely vocals and harmonies. I assume it's referring to Liza Minelli - both have famous mums. Great to listen to in the car!

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth getting for the version of "First Time Ever I saw Your Face"!, 11 Nov. 2013

A mixed bag as is so often the case with great singers who rely on others for their songs. It's taken from two live performances, one in the 70's at the height of her fame and one more recent. The voice has changed and become huskier, but is still electrifying on tracks like The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face, even if she does get the words wrong!
The earlier versions of Jesse and Suzanne are also fantastic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great jazz influenced album!, 11 Nov. 2013

This review is from: Have You Met Miss Bell? (Audio CD)
A very consistent album with some very good renditions of Jazz standards. Considering the number of hit singles she's had as part of Blue Mink, Bell has never really hit the big time as a soloist. Her vocals are great on this album, however, and it's easy to see why she still has a substantial fan-base.

A great offering from Sarah at her prime. Her style has developed here, but isn't over the top as in some later offerings. A must for fans of great jazz singers.

Minnelli is one of those artists who are great when they hit the mark, but too often they end up producing lack-lustre albums. This album is better than expected with a great title track in the big showstopper, musical number style. Other tracks are more reflective and sometimes poignant, but certainly not everyone's cup of tea!

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 11 Nov. 2013

The much hyped re-mastered Pet Shop Boys collaborations are long winded and boring. It's basically a re-hash of other "best of" albums.

I'm re-visiting this from my late teens and i like it more now than i did at the time. Very consistent album with no dud tracks. Bob's voice is great on this outing too. Still really love the hit single Baby Please Stop Crying, but there's much more on offer with great musicians and particularly great backing vocals.

Like a good wine, Mavis gets better with age. Apart from her fantastic "Live at the Hideout" album, this may be her best yet in terms of consistency, although i think all of her more recent recordings are fantastic.

Sarah really nails this one (to use X Factor speak). Her voice is at its magnificent best and she's at the height of her creativity as a singer and interpreter. Wonderful!
