5.0 out of 5 stars A real throw back...summer variety...and music, 28 Jun. 2013

This review is from: Seaside Special (Audio CD)
If like me you have fond memories of trips to the seaside and visits to the theatre to watch a summer show then this 3 CD will be a pleasant listening experience. I am old enough to have seen Cliff Richard; Tommy Cooper; Adam Faith; Russ Conway; Frank Ifield; Norman Wisdom; Ruby Murray; Karl Denver; Helen Shapiro & Lita Rosa. It is hard to believe that such summer shows existed as they have all but gone. Luckily the banner is still flown at the Babbacombe Theatre each year by Colin Matthews productions who still put on a traditional style summer show. If you cannot get down to South Devon to see this then I think this set will take its place very nicely.
The variety angle is well covered and there is music aplenty. Excellent sound transfers and value for money from Music Digital.

5.0 out of 5 stars VARIETY IS STILL THE SPICE OF LIFE!, 30 Jun. 2013
By 
A. POLLOCK (PLYMOUTH, DEVON United Kingdom) - See all my reviews

This review is from: Seaside Special (Audio CD)
This double-pronged recall of times past is the ideal listening companion for those who enjoyed the annual Summer shows produced at Blackpool, Torquay, Great Yarmouth and so many other popular UK seaside holiday destinations as well as the BBC's weekly Seventies show, SEASIDE SPECIAL which in a way fed on their success as well as drawing attention to their slow demise as music tastes changed and holidays were taken abroad.

With three discs containing seventy-five tracks, the emphasis is on those comedians who fortunately waxed a few discs (Morecambe & Wise, Charlie Drake, Eric Sykes & Hattie Jacques etc.), chart-busting pop singers (Cliff Richard, Helen Shapiro, Adam Faith, Joe Brown etc.) and established artistes (Frankie Vaughan, Winifred Atwell, Petula Clark, Russ Conway, Tessie O'Shea, Harry Secombe etc.) Whilst their chosen repertoire tends to dwell on the familiar, it's a real treat to have them all contained in one set with excellent remastered sound. In other words, confirming VARIETY IS THE SPICE OF LIFE!
