3.0 out of 5 stars ... musically falutless, but why ..., 15 Mar. 2011
This review is from: Toast Soundtrack (MP3 Download)
I don't know is you saw Toast when it was broadcast as part of the BBCs Christmas schedule. If you did, then I can provide you with the number of a support group. Purportedly, the memoirs of cook Nigel Slater, it would appear that his memories of the sixties and seventies don't gel with those of his fellow family members. Something that would have been forgiveable, if the programme itself hadn't been utterly risible. This was largely the fault of the ever-awful Helena Bonham-Carter who decided it would be a good idea to audition for the role of pantomime dame in front of the cameras. I still shudder when I think of her Cissie & Ada impersonation.

Over in the world of the soundtrack, though, things got a lot better. Well, you can't really go wrong when you plump for classic Dusty Springfield, can you. And they're all gems, with 'Wishin' And Hopin', 'I'll Try Anything (To Get You)', 'The Look Of Love', 'I Only Want To Be With You', 'Little By Little', 'Yesterday When I Was Young' and my all time favourite version of 'If You Go Away' on offer. But that's it.

Seven tracks. So I'm not really sure who this is aimed at. After all, you can get a 21 track best of for less money, and with three times as many tracks. And are there really that many Nigel Slater fans out there, who'll download it just for the cover art on their iPod? If there are, then they should be nipping off to download it now.

The rest of you, who for some strange reason, don't have a Dusty best of, should nip off and buy the Hits Collection urgently.
