5.0 out of 5 stars Everyone should have one . . .
. . . at least one Georgie Fame album, that is. Georgie is responsible for giving the world what is arguably the finest horn riff of all on Get Away - just five notes, but, oh, what notes. This excellent value CD is a must - it's got most of his hits, and the other tracks are all standards which Fame interprets in his own accomplished way with character and empathy. And...

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointingly low-quality recordings
Disappointing. Georgie Fame is, to me, one of the most innovative pop artists of the 60s, especially his jazz-tinged approach to R&B and Rock. Many of the tracks on this collection are live performances with all the recording muddiness and background noises you get in a club setting. The cuts have not been remastered and it shows even in the studio recordings. Cannot...

This review is from: The Very Best of Georgie Fame And The Blue Flames (Audio CD)
. . . at least one Georgie Fame album, that is. Georgie is responsible for giving the world what is arguably the finest horn riff of all on Get Away - just five notes, but, oh, what notes. This excellent value CD is a must - it's got most of his hits, and the other tracks are all standards which Fame interprets in his own accomplished way with character and empathy. And it's also a great demonstration of why the pop music of the sixties was so brilliant - an era when artists of Georgie's calibre were taking their inspiration from jazz and blues and, in turn, inspiring so many others. I love it. The price of this Fame album is ludicrously cheap and there's really very little excuse for not including it in your collection.

I have always like Georgie and did when teamed with Alan Price. The Major hits on this CD are Get Away & Yeh Yeh other tracks are obscure but interesting. No skipping of tracks on this CD

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific club singing, 26 Feb 2013

This review is from: The Very Best of Georgie Fame And The Blue Flames (Audio CD)
He was one of the best Jazz and Blues performers around & was always put on a great performance with the Blue Flames. Went off a bit when he joined up with Alan Price on those tacky variety shows but he's a great Hammond organ man !

Georgie Fame is an over-looked gem in the history of Blues, Boogie-Woogie, Jump'n'Jive and Soul - end of!! This album includes most of his well-known tracks but there is so much more to his music. See this album as a taster before you delve into his extensive back-catalogue.

This review is from: The Very Best of Georgie Fame And The Blue Flames (Audio CD)
I have been a professional musician/entertainer, for over 40 years, and I have a Full Equity Card, and have worked with many excellent artists, but, sadly, Not Georgie Fame, but I hold him in the highest regard, as a musician, and all round entertainer. He is one of the best, and I LOVE the cd "The Very Best of Georgie Fame and The Blue Flames.
