Polydor Records celebrates the 60th birthday of Andrew Lloyd -Webber, indisputably the most successful composer of our time, with the release of `60'. This amazing 3 CD, 60 track set spans the whole of Andrew's illustrious career and includes hits from all of his most famous musicals - Jesus Christ Superstar, Cats,Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Starlight Express, Evita, Sunset Boulevard and of course The Phantom Of The Opera. The album features hit recordings, hits from cast albums all sung by a diverse range of superstar and original artists.
From Elvis Presley singing It's Easy For You (the song that Andrew and Tim Rice wrote especially for him) to Barbra Streisand, Sarah Brightman, Shirley Bassey, John Barrowman, Michael Crawford, Madonna, Tom Jones and rocker Alice Cooper (singing King Herod's Song) this collection has it all.

The third disc is my least favourite, only a couple of the songs really stood out, the first two are by far the better, being lest varied but more memorable, featured heavily are: Starlight Express, Tell Me On A Sunday, Evita, Jesus Christ Superstar, Phantom of the Opera, Whistle Down the Wind and Cats. As these are my favourites I didn't mind, though some of the repititions of tracks but by different performers was hard to justify - why for example include Barbra Streisand's version of 'Memory' when Elaine Paige singing the song is on the first disc and it eclipses Streisand version.
I think the first two discs are more successful because more thought seems to have gone into the ordering of the tracks; disc one for instance has many title tracks like `The Phantom of the Opera', `Superstar', `Whistle Down the Wind' and the songs that you associate with specific musicals, the ones that really stand alone and can be taken out of context, like `Memory' and `Love changes Everything'.Read more ›
However, this is not exactly the first Lloyd Webber compilation to have hit the market. What makes it worth purchasing (apart from the very reasonable price for this much music) is the fact that the producers have obviously thought about this, and included different versions of many of the songs than the ones that we are used to hearing. Who knew that Anastacia had sung "Superstar"? Not me - but what a great voice she has for that song!
With 60 songs in the compilation, unless you really are a die-hard fan, there are bound to be quite a few that you don't know. So get this compilation and enjoy!
However, making the song count up to sixty might not have been the best idea... there are a few 'also ran's'...
Nevertheless, this is a graet purchase. ( I would have paid the asking price just for Emmy Rossum's 'Wishing you were somehow here' alone.
Poor packaging has cost it a star.
