As someone who grew up with Cliff and The Shadows , this is a good showcase of early material. It is a shame that some of the tracks from Me and My Shadows were faded early , and in the case of I LOVE YOU SO , so early it missed the nice acoustic instrumental break. Whoever mixed it clearly never heard the original album , which I have . I also have an Australian CD issue which is much better but unfortunately for any one with the original , you will realise that the over dubs have been lost and Choppin'and changin' is a poor version.

for years it was impossible to find a compilation of Cliff's earlier recordings; now there are quite a few but this has to be the best. Cliff was one of Britains top rock'n'rollers and certainly the most popular. His songs were always superbly produced and recorded by Norrie Paramor and the team at Columbia, and were hugely enhanced by the brilliant instrumental backing provided by the Shadows. This anthology covers recordings 1958-1961 including the first three albums and all the EPs, singles and flips with a scattering of Drifters/Shadows material. But what makes this collection stand out is the fabulous quality of the digital remastering whic makes the already good sound quality into something quite stunning - almost like hearing it all for the first time. The packaging and liner notes are excellent and the price is terrific! I just hope that there is an Anthology vol 2 - soon!
