5.0 out of 5 stars What a box set for Cilla fans., 26 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
To get this cd collection of Cilla songs with EVERY single title she recorded for EMI for her first 10 years in showbiz in chronological order is a bonus for Cilla fans. 5cds superb quality of the old songs its a must for all cilla fans. Then things just get better, cos with this box set comes another dvd of rareties of songs mostly from her 60s and 70s hit tv series titled CILLA. I remember seeing all the shows as they were compulsive saturday night viewing. Get this box set too to see how Cilla herself has changed through the years.

I certainly hope that the next 10 years and more DVDs will be released. It would also be nice to see her 2 hit comedy series out on DVD.

If you dont own a Cilla song then "WHY NOT?" the lady is superb. Absolutely fabulous.

I have rated this CD/DVD collection 5 stars because there arent any more. it should go up to at least 10!

5.0 out of 5 stars New Beginnings, 7 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The thought of Cilla doing a new album was so exiting for her fans with a mixture of old hits, revamped hits, and brand new stuff. Cilla's version of the Ringo hit Photograph is superb and means a lot as she lost her beloved Bobby 4 years earlier.
Cilla also recorded a brand new Burt Bacharach song "Beginnings". Bert wrote Cilla's very first number 1 hit Anyone who had a heart 40 years earlier.
All the songs on this album are superb especially Beautiful Goodbye, This Kiss, I want to kiss you all over (which has a telephone answer machine message to Cilla from Jude Law at the beginning of the song). Theres also Cliff doing backing on the John Lennon track Imagine which Cilla handles so delicately. There's also a completely different "late night" version of Bert's penned hit Anyone who had a heart. This Album is just superb and worth listening to, not just by Cilla fans but by everyone.

Cilla handles all the brilliant classics with only the way she can, superbly! Released on vinyl in the seventies and on cd with a new title of Love songs. It then got released as Especially for you by public demand with original art work, and now with bonus tracks Surprise Surprise, and the anticipated release of fool on the hill (first release of Fool on the hill EVER) from her review Cilla at the Palace, this is definately a must have for Cilla fans. If you love the songs on this album you must buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Step aside and listen, 8 Sep 2010
By far the best Cilla Black studio album (though I love them all). This was Cillas 3rd studio album and it came around the time her new single "Step Inside Love" was released in 1968. Many of the tracks on this album Cilla included in her TV show "Cilla" at the time.

Her late husband Bobby was a great song writer and penned the beautiful "I couldnt take my eyes off you" which was released on the B side of Step Inside Love.

The whole album shows how Cilla's voice can belt out a big ballad like "This is the first time", then go to the quiet little numbers like "A man and a woman" to then what can be called a fun song to sing "Follow me". She also compliments The Tremeloes song "Suddenly you love me" and Gene Pitneys "Somethings gotten hold of my heart" and a fabulous rendition of "Follow the path of Stars". Most of these songs could, and should have been released as singles especially The Jackie De Shannon song "What the world needs now is love". I have heard this song by Jackie de Shannon and many other artistes in the past but Cilla's version is simpy "THE BEST". With the bonus tracks of Cilla singing "Step Inside Love" in Italian it really is a must for not only Cilla fans but people who were there during the sixties and remember such brilliant songs.

A Petula Clark CD with the old old stuff on it! A double album with lots of "forgotten" songs brought back to life. I know there are lots more so waiting with baited breath for it to be released on CD. Definately a must not only for Petula fans but for everyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprise!, 20 Sep 2009
Well, I loved the original version of Something Tells Me back in 1971 and didnt think it'd ever be a hit again but now its been brought up to date for the 21st century and believe me you will hear this and a lot more of Cilla and her old songs in the clubs now as a lot of them (unlike Cilla herself) have had a facelift!
This is superb and deserves to be as high in the downloads singles chart as the first time around! Thanks to almighty records for remixing this and to all those involved in Cilla being available again!

5.0 out of 5 stars About time too!, 20 April 2006
This review is from: Especially for You (Audio CD)
Its about time that this album was released with the original art work with Cilla at her best.

Great songs of the 70s that only Cilla could add the magic touch to.

The album so well deserved the silver disc status it originally received 25 years ago, and will be nice to hear it again without the scratches!

The unearthed songs that were buried in EMI's vaults are a credit to this brilliant 3 CD collection. Not only a must for Cilla fan's but if you havent got a Cilla record in your collection this 3 CD box set is a must!
