By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 19 Oct. 2003
Format: Audio CD
Various compilations have been released on CD with slightly different track listings. The compilations all duplicate each other to some extent but there are significant differences.
Tracey first achieved fame in her native Britain as a comedienne, then had a brief career as a pop singer before moving to America, where she resumed her career as a comedienne. The public are always suspicious of established celebrities becoming pop singers, but make no mistake, Tracey can sing, as this and other collections of her music show. She knew her limitations and worked within them effectively and well.
Tracey recorded two original albums on LP. The first, You broke my heart in 17 places, was pure magic. The second, You caught me out, was quite a good effort with some magic moments. A compilation album was released containing the best tracks from the first two plus some other songs, including My guy, that didn't appear on either.
Tracey's biggest hit, They don't know, was a cover of a song by the brilliant Kirsty MacColl, whose own version of the song had mysteriously flopped. Tracey took the song to number two in the UK and number eight in the USA. It went to number one in Norway and several other countries. After that Kirsty supplied Tracey with other songs – You broke my heart in 17 places, You caught me out, Terry
Tracey had other hits in the UK, all covers. Breakaway (Jackie De Shannon) peaked at four. Move over darling peaked at eight in Britain just as Doris Day's original had done although neither made the USA charts. Sunglasses was first recorded by Skeeter Davis but was quickly covered by Sandy Posey. My guy was originally written and recorded by Madness as My girl. The minor hit Helpless is a Motown song originally recorded by Kim Weston.

With the introduction of the internet and being able to access radio stations from around the world; I have been able to listen to various tracks of Ms Ullman and have enjoyed what I have heard.

Listening to this album takes my back 20 years, to my youth and to the music that made me turn up the stereo and annoy my parents.

Various compilations have been released on CD with slightly different track listings. This review pertains to the Rhino Best of compilation, the first eleven tracks of which are a straight re-issue of Tracey's original debut album.

Jingly jangly catchy '60s tinged sunny day pop. Highlights for me are the awesome They Don't Know, an inspired reworking of Madness's My Guy (Girl)'s Mad At Me, the feelgood Sunglasses, the uptempo trombonetastic I Don't Want Our Loving To Die, and a gorgeous cover of the Korgis If I Had You. The sound quality could be better, but it's a great addition to anyone's collection of bubblegum pop.

By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 18 Nov. 2003
Format: Audio CD
Tracey Ullman’s brand of 1980s pop didn’t extend the boundaries of music but they dusted off and gave new life to some old standards that deserved a new lease on life. With her perfect pop voice and her sense of humour, she made albums of great listening pleasure. Every track here is worth the effort. My favourites include Breakaway, Oh What A Night, Move Over Darling, Bobby’s Girl, They Don’t Know and especially her wonderful version of Blondie’s (I’m Always Touched By Your) Presence Dear. The backing is superb, the production is perfect and her delivery is great with all the right vocal inflections. All in all an album of classy and enjoyable pop classics.

Breakaway, Sunglasses, My Guy, They Don't Know, has her all big hits and Move Over Darling. Tracy Ulliman OK to listen to and the rest of the album is fine some of the time and the rest is a bit cheesy. A album to enjoy and not to be taken seriously.
