A good introduction to David Essex
on 31 May 2011
What a career David has had and this CD contains his unique songs that have sustained a near on forty year career.
Rock on is such a great timeless song that never ages and always sounds fresh. The follow-up Lamplight, which David still sings in concerts today is here and remains a concert favorite. The "America" single was released just before the no 1 hit "Gonna make you a star" I always thought "America" was a haunting interesting track. The Stardust track from the film of the same name stands up well and is sang with real emotion. I think we all know "Hold me Close" another number 1 hit."City Lights" is another classic and you instantly know it is David Essex song as this guy is a total individual.
The great thing about this CD is it moves fully through his singing career and also contains "Its Gonna Be Alright" from the "Wonderful" album, which is also worth buying. Well Done David - Rock On!
