I admit, first and foremost, that as a huge fan of John Barrowman I am fairly biased in his favour, but I sincerely believe this latest offering is an excellent selection of songs, especially for newcomers who may not be too familiar with his music.

Best known for his role as Captain Jack Harkness on Torchwood and Doctor Who, there are a lot of folk who aren't aware that his roots lie in musical theatre. His CDs over the years have been a fairly eclectic selection of music, ranging from musical theatre to modern day pop.

This latest CD contains a selection of songs from his previous three albums - "Another Side", "Music Music Music" and his self-titled album "John Barrowman". The songs are some of his favourites from each album, and if you already have those albums then you may be familiar with the meanings that each of those songs have for the entertainer.

In addition to the compilation of songs from previous albums, there are two newly recorded songs: Rod Stewart's "Tonight's the Night" and the new single "I Owe It All To You". It's been suggested that the inclusion of these two new recordings are simply a way to guarantee long-time fans will buy the new album, but that does not diminish the delight of having two new songs to listen to.

The album is a most enjoyable compilation for both newcomers and current fans. My only disappointment is that he has not included the beautiful song "Don't Cry Out Loud", from his previous album. That aside, this is well worth adding to the collection, and even more worthwhile for starting off an entirely new collection of John Barrowman music.

I probably have all of these songs on other CDs that John has done but for me this compilation is perfect. The mixture of styles is well balanced and I enjoy listening to it regardless of what mood I'm in. John's rendition of "Memory" even received praise from my husband and son, neither of whom are fans. I think this CD is worthy of being in anyone's collection, fan or not.

This is a wonderful collection of 'some' of Johns best recordings with the added bonus of two new tracks!!! Not many artists do that with a very best of album! It's a fabulous album that I can listen too over and over again! I even bought my 12 year old niece a copy!! She'll be over the moon on her birthday!!!

I am a fan of John Barrowman as an actor, entertainer and vocalist. This album was brilliant. Hope he keeps going for years to come.

Excellent CD, LOVE his version of Rod Stewarts 'tonight's the night', don't know how he does it, but like his versions better than the original ones, except The Winner Takes it All, of course... *g*

I totally love this CD! I drive my kids crazy playing it in the car! They have even found themselves singing one or two of the songs in their head the rest of the day. I will have to get more of his CDs.

My daughter bought this for me at Christmas and I am still playing it in the car! I love it. I have bought this copy as part of my sister-in-law's birthday. I know she will also love it.

I have always liked John Barrowman and watched his TV programme. I enjoyed his CD because it was good to hear something you could just relax and listen to.
