5.0 out of 5 stars no words can describe, 10 May 2004
This review is from: The Kids from Fame (Audio CD)
At long last they decided to bring out the very first Fame album out on cd (come on where are the rest ?) ! Only had to wait nearly 20 years for it. I followed Fame through the six series and the cast felt, and still feel like friends to me. To hear these songs again is like a massive 'blast from the past'. The first song is 'Starmaker' and it did very well in the charts. It still sounds brilliant and its lovely to hear all the individual voices so well. To hear Debbie Allen (Miss Lydia Grant) singing 'come on boys you can do it' ! in the song 'I can do anything better than you can', just takes you straight back into one of her dance classes with Gene Anthony Ray (Leroy) and Erica Gimple (Coco) waiting to dance their hearts away. One song that could have been left off is 'Its gonna be a long night' by Lori Singer (Julie). I personally think it was a grave mistake to let her sing a solo and its still as bad today as it ever was. Hi Fidelity is still as sharp and funny as it always has been and when hearing it you can still see Valerie Landsburg (Doris) jumping up and down to the keyboard playing of Lee Curreri (Bruno). Desdermona just sounds great with the opening 'oooooooooohhhhhh my desdermona' sung by Leroy. This cd is a MUST - go and buy it. In memory of Gene Anthony Ray RIP.
