Product Description

Product Description

Julian Ovenden, the established charismatic star of stage and screen is already well known from playing many leading roles in high profile television shows; perhaps most familiarly known for his role as the Spitfire pilot Andrew Foyle in the critically acclaimed drama-series, Foyle’s War. His debut album is a collection of songs that take the listener back to the golden era of 1960s London, including "It Hurts To Say Goodbye", "The Last Waltz", "You’ve Made Me So Very Happy" and "When She Loved Me" from Toy Story.

This is a good example of a studio album being put together with the aim of pleasing everyone. In reality it is something of a "Curates Egg" and yet it has charm and the choice of songs not at odds with Julian Ovenden's voice or ability. As a trained singer and actor of vast experience he can turn his hand/voice to a wide range of styles. This album attempts to demonstrate exactly that. I have some favourites "The Last Waltz"; "Up, up and Away"; "You've made me so very happy". I listened to the whole album through headphones and felt that the sound balance between Julian's voice and the orchestra does not do him justice as he sounds too distant or too surrounded. ( particularly tracks 2 & 13) also the bass seemed rather high at times. Modern recordings should be perfect and have clarity and balance. I like vocals up front with the orchestra to left and right and some of these songs would have benefitted from that delivery. Even so I would rate this 3 stars.

If You Stay Julian Ovenden has a beautiful voice, and I was really looking forward to this CD. However, I feel that his voice is lost due to the backing - too much noise in the background - drums bashing etc. -sometimes his voice seemed to play second fiddle. I want to hear Julian Ovenden with the appropriate backing for his voice. No matter that this was a 60's & 70's album, it did not do his great talent justice. Please don't overpower a beautiful voice with this "rock" type (I don't know what else to call it!) band music. We so seldom get to hear a voice like this and I felt it was drowned.

Just like 'Peggy B' I was really looking forward to this CD. I'm very disappointed. The songs do not suit Julian's voice at all, in fact "The Last Waltz" really made me cringe. Stick to the more powerful songs Julian, I really loved you on the BBC Proms. Sorry!!

I like Julian.I ordered this after seeing him on TV. He has a good voice but I think the choice of songs could have suited him better

I was really looking forward to this album as I have admired Julian Ovenden for some time and loved him in Marguerite and at the proms.A beautiful rich voice which sends shivers down my spine when singing the Jaques Brel classic If You Go Away;I also loved You Made Me So Very Happy.But what a disappointing selection of songs!Last Waltz and Up Up and Away just aren't worthy of his powerful emotional voice.I much prefer him singing musical theatre where he can really let rip:to hear him sing Being Alive is just amazing.Have given only 4 stars simply because of the songs-if you are going to do 60s songs then there are some much better ones out there.

This is a cracker of a record. Slightly old school but with serious high end production values and brilliant vocal performance. Highly recommended for anyone who loves that 60's sound.

Oh dear!, I was going to by this album, as I have always liked his acting and one of the the resident singers in the fabulous John Wilson t.v. extravaganzas. I thought I would listen to the MP3 samples first. This decided me not to get this album. Wrong choice of song, orchestrations and sound, as he sounded though he was trying to lower his range to suit the song. It was a disappointment. A lovely voice with the wrong material.

Julian Ovenden's vocal ability is a wonderful gift. He sings in smooth, mellow tones that bring Frank Sinatra to mind yet when he lets rip he mesmerises with his amazing power and emotional capability. I love musical theatre and would bust a gut to buy a Julian Ovenden CD filled with MT classics but I think it is good to get out of one's musical comfort zone once in a while and listen to something else. I already knew some of the tracks on the album and thoroughly approve of Julian's rendition of them. My absolute favourite track is If You Go Away but to my mind there isn't a duffer on the CD. I know I will return to it again and again. And for the record, I'd enjoy listening to this man singing Old MacDonald Had a Farm, so special is his voice.
