The Ultimate Collection...Almost!,
This review is from: The Ultimate Collection (Audio CD)
As a big EP fan for over 30 years a new CD is always a treat, even if it is another compilation album. The majority of the single disc CD is nothing that we haven't heard before on other compilation CDs and there are really only five tracks that haven't appeared on compilation CDs before; 'The Prayer', 'I'm Still Here', It's Raining On Prom Night', 'What A Feeling' and 'Be On Your Own Remix', which I think is worth the £5.00 price of the CD alone.
I think the album would have reached 'Utimate Collection' status if it had included tracks from 'Billy', 'Anything Goes', 'The King & I', 'The Queen Album', 'Love Can Do That' and 'Romance & The Stage' but I know these were recorded on different labels so it may have been hard to get permission to put them on this CD.
However, without a doubt this album does represent a hefty chunk of EP's long and illustrious career and ties in nicely with her 50th anniversary in the business and farewell tour later in the year.
EP will always be my 'ultimate' performer and has brought me a lot of pleasure over the years with her fantastic voice and interpretation of songs whether from shows or not and I hope she thrills me for years to come.
