By T.C. VINE VOICE on 5 May 2010
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
It`s the mid-sixties and Paul & Barry twins of Marian Ryan who had been successful herself were thrust onto the pop scene. Fresh faced young and handsome you felt they were destined for big things but somehow it didn`t quite work out that way. They were very under-rated and after some minor hits including the haunting " Have pity on the boy " they re-arranged the partnership.Paul moved into the background concentrating on Writing and producing,while Barry went solo. Paul came up with one of the all-time classic songs for Barry when he penned him Eloise. It didn`t quite make number one stalling at no 2 for three weeeks. Paul also wrote I Will Drink The Wine for Frank Sinatra and had his finest hour watching the govenor perform his song at the Albert Hall. Sadly Paul passed away a few years ago through cancer. Barry still performs now and again. You feel that the brothers didn`t quite make it in the way that they should have done but this album is testament to their abilities and a good selection of their careers. If you like sixties pop you will enjoy this one.

I love this CD. It's probably the best collection of songs from the Ryan twins. CD 2 includes some exellent pieces from the late 60's.

HASH(0x8f700780) out of 5 stars An essential purchase. 30 May 2001
By Bill A. O'Connor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There are two truly great tracks on this album: "Eloise" and "Kitsch". Either would be worth the price, and both are available on "Singles", also offered at a much lower price by Amazon. A third track, "The colour of my love", is not too bad. Others you may like (since tastes differ) but for my ... bucks the two mentioned above are essential. "Eloise" went to #2 in England and #86 in the US -- it should have gone to #1 in both cases. A dramatic love song of the most extraordinary power and originality, orchestral pop of the very finest (but without being schmaltzy), it is only matched, nearly, by "Kitsch". Here the strings are positively Wagnerian, as is the Valkyrie-like choir that sweeps up behind Barry's empassioned vocals. This one is a little more "alternative" than "Eloise", what with strange lyrics like, "I saw a queen / All dressed in green / But I could see / She had no soul. / I see the moon / Sheening [sic] in June / What we all need / Is rock and roll" -- it is all quite extraordinary, and I recommend this album (or the cheaper one) unreservedly to any lover of great 60s pop. Any collection that lacks these songs is irretrievably mutilated.
