Every one a gem!, 9 Oct. 2008
Including 3 number ones and several less familiar numbers, this compiliation is a must for any David Essex fan, even if, like myself, you've got all the tracks scattered on various other cd's.
These 19 original recordings (not a cast CD) could be mistaken for being written and recorded purely for the musical of the same name, (despite some numbers being over 30 years old), such is the ingenious way these songs have been chosen and integrated into the storyline!
This new musical gives these legendary and timeless classics a new lease of life.
Some of my personal favourites include 'Dangerous', 'Here We are Altogether', 'He Noticed Me', 'Pretty Thing', 'I'll Call Ya (She's Leaving Home)' and 'You're In My Heart', none of which were released as singles, but are now, through this album, reaching out to a wider audience.
