5.0 out of 5 stars Fame`s biggest fan from long, long ago............., 30 July 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Ultimate Fame (Audio CD)
I loved Fame from the very word `go` and have all five of the BBC vinyl albums tucked safely away in my collection. For years I longed for the albums to be released on cd but up to now only the first one `The Kids From Fame` has been put out on compact disc. To find this album out on cd was a great bonus as there are several tracks from the other as-yet-unreleased albums. To me Fame will always be Debbie Allen, Valerie Landsburg, Lori Singer, Erica Gimpel, Lee Curreri, Carlo Imperato and the late Gene Anthony Ray, and you can hear all their voices on this cd. The title track from the movie Fame sung by Irene Cara is a must but I wish the version sung by Erica Gimpel from the tv show would have been put on as a bonus track. Starmaker and Hi-Fidelity are brilliant, fantastic songs and the charm of Lori Singer`s unsteady, untrained vocals on It`s Gonna Be A Long Night has always held a special place in my heart. It`s such a pretty, heartfelt song (I disagree with those people who put the song down purely because Lori Singer should have `stuck to playing the cello`!) Desdemona and Life Is A Celebration are real quality, high performance songs are you just have to get up and `get down` with the infectiousness of the drama of both songs! I have to say I`m not all that keen on the four songs included from the Stage Show and would rather more from the series had been included instead. My choices would have been Fame (by Erica Gimpel), Rock `n` Roll World from the 3rd series, the wonderful Beautiful Dreamer by Valerie Landsburg and the dance number Body Language by Debbie Allen. All in all though its a wonderful cd and a real MUST for ALL Fame fans. The three bonus tracks at the end Friday Night, Murphy Blues and False Alarm leave you longing for an Ultimate Fame Volume Two cd!!
