The New Tracks,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rockferry (Audio CD)
Having already reviewed Rockferry and giving it a glowing review all I wish to say is that until it was replaced with this Deluxe version it was still the most played CD in my car (much to the annoyance of others who aren't as fond of her music as I am!)
The 7 additional tracks on the deluxe version continue in that distinctive Duffy modern take on the 60s style with the perfect mix of upbeat songs and heartfelt melodies.
Having played the additional tracks a few times now I like them all but my personal favourites are Rain On Your Parade (already released as a single), Stop which has a great catchy tune and Fool For You - a hauntingly mellow track which I keep finding myself humming.
Please Stay - Her cover of the Burt Bacharach song bought a smile to my face as I fondly remember a previous version played and played by me back in the 70's as a pre-teenager wearing my tartan trews lol!
I wish record companies would stop re-releasing albums as deluxe editions with just a few extra tracks, though in this instance the 7 additional tracks are worth every penny in my opinion.
If you like Duffy you'll love this - I certainly do!

oh boy is a b side so there are just 6 new songs. The record company are a bit mean, if they are going to put one b side on why not the others? There are at least 2 more they could have put on. There is no point buying cd's when they first come out, just wait a while to see if special versions come out.I wasnt caught out with Rhianna but looks like I will be with Duffy as I like all the new songs.

Although I agree with you about the release of "deluxe" additions, I have the same problem with singles. I loved this album, a year for Welsh singers for me! However the producers are aware that Duffy's fan base who will buy her music are willing to splash out a bit! I always wait for about 4-5 months to make sure special additions don't escape me, and it paid off here, 17 tracks for £8 is a bargain, certainly considering the quality of each one. I would not have wanted to have bought each single, the album, and then this addition, as the pennies and pounds would have added up!
