Lovely and loving,
This review is from: Love on 42nd Street (Audio CD)
This beautiful new album is overflowing with love. The music and lyrics of Dan and Laura Curtis are packed with love of all kinds - passion, love long lost, unrequited love and love burning brightly. The messages of these brilliant new songs show the loving reason the album was created - to show care and compassion for Children in Need with all proceeds going to that charity.
Each song was crafted carefully for a specific, talented and wonderful West End or Broadway star. Consequently, every performance is perfect for the song in question. From John Owen-Jones powerful Tell Me What Makes A Man through to Lea Salonga's heart-wrenching Wished That I Could Call You we hear eveer aspect of human love.
Katy Treharne's performance of What Love Is For is pure and perfect in every note and Simon Bowman's No Time For Romance will have even the toughest of us reaching for a hanky.
If you love music theatre and enjoy top class singing by real stars then this is the album for you.
