5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST JUST GOT BETTER, 21 Sept. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was very pleased to hear this album was being remixed with bonus tracks,the new sound is a vast improvement and nice to have all tracks on one cd.This has always been my favourite Dusty album and now I love it even more.

Some interesting sleeve notes and lovely photos make this a worthwhile purchase.The price has been steep as it's a import.I must mention one small downside, I do prefer the UK sleeve retitled FROM DUSTY...WITH LOVE


5.0 out of 5 stars Cilla's softer side, 5 May 2017
Released in may 1971 this album showed the softer side of Cilla, all tracks are ballads.Some covers and new material,the covers include Paul McCartneys junk and The Carpenters close to you.A bit of trivia the L.P. was going to be called CILLA'n'SOFIE'n'ADA after her board dogs and there is a photo of all three on the back of the sleeve. A very pleasant record showing that Cilla did'nt all ways belt them out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wasted Opertunity, 29 Oct. 2016
This review is from: 5 Classic Albums (Audio CD)
You cannot fault the music here but my problem with this set and infact quite a few others is why release this set when four of the albums are available seperatley and some of his other albums like " The Moviegoer" and "Sings songs from his TV Series" have still not had a CD release.I know this is a cheap way to get some classic albums but I feel it is a wasted opertunity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get it while you can,or youll regret it, 17 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having only recentley heard this album,I just had to buy it.Its one of those albums that as soon as its finished you play it again,it is so GOOD.
I didnt realise that Johnny had such a superb voice,and the choice of excellent material makes this album stand out.
After trying to order it from HMV I was told it had been deleted,so get it while you can.

5.0 out of 5 stars As the title says "THE HIT SINGLES", 11 May 2016
This review is from: Hit Singles (Audio CD)
It was a tough market in the 60,s ,to get a hit record when the competition was so strong.Especially for the girl singers.
So for Cilla to have 18 top 40 hits icluding two number ones was most impressive.Of course she was in good hands with George Martin,Brian Epstien and Bobby Willis to guide her,but lets not forget it was Cilla,s strong voice,chirpy personalitty and hard work that made her the huge star she became.
This is a no frills package,you get the 17 hits from the 60,s plus her 1971 smash"Something Tells Me" .
I grew up listening to this lady,bought every new single,EP, and LP saw her "Live" many times and met her and she did not dissapoint.
Its still hard to believe she is no longer with us,but she would be thrilled to know that her music is once again being enjoyed.
The songs here show Cilla at her best when her voice was strong and she was given these great songs to sing.DON,T ANSWER ME- A FOOL AM I- LOVES JUST A BROKEN HEART and CONVERSATIONS are my favourites. Its easy to forget that Cilla made No2 with "YOUVE LOST THAT LOVING FEELING(I still prefer her version) and SURROUND YOURSELF WITH SORROW and SOMETHING TELLS ME made No3.
These are her Hit Singles and not a dud amoungst them.God bless you Cilla.
The booklet has a recent essay and some photos I hadnt seen before,it has a real 60s look making it a nice item.

5.0 out of 5 stars AT LAST!!!, 31 Jan. 2016
This review is from: Original Album Series (Audio CD)
This has been a long time coming but I am still a bit dissapointed.Cliff,Dusty and Sandie have had all their albums released individually with bonus tracks and interesting booklets,this is what I hoped is how Cilla:s original albums would be issued.Don;t get me wrong I am very pleased with this release but I love Cilla;s music and wish she was given the same respect as the other artists I,ve mentioned.
These five albums are all superb and show what an excellent singer Cilla was as she covers many musical styles.If the only abum you own by Cilla is the chart topping "Very best of" then go buy this set.Only three of her hits are included on these five albums so not much duplication.
CILLA (1965) is a great debut and it went top five,COME TO ME is for me the highlight og the album,Cilla soars on this track co-written by Bobby Willis,Also great versions of DANCING IN THE STREET,BABY ITS YOU and even OL;MAN RIVER.
CILLA SINGS A RAINBOW (1966) was even better,includes her hit single LOVES JUST A BROKEN HEART,ONE TWO THREE,and still my favourite Cilla track EVERYTHING I TOUCH TURNS TO TEARS.Another top five album showing the powerfull voice of Cilla Black.
SHER-OO (1968) also made the top 10,includes her hit single STEP INSIDE LOVE and brilliant versions of SOMETHINGS GOTTEN HOLD OF MY HEART,WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW IS LOVE,a rip roaring YO-YO and even a go at comedy in the scouts sendup FOLLOW ME.
SURROUND YOURSELF WITH CILLA (1969) surprisingly did;nt chart,strange as it included her top three single SURROUND YOURSELF WITH SORROW,a gorgous version of WORDS and the charming LIVERPOOL LULLABYE which I think could have given Cilla her third No1 if issued as a single(IT was also released on the B side of her hit CONVERSATIONS)I remember playing this album to death in the summer of 69.
SWEET INSPIRATION (1970)is a classy affair,Cilla was changing her sytyle slightly and including more original materiall,but still doing exellent cover versions like FOR ONCE IN MY LIFE,PUT A LITTLE LOVE IN YOUR HEART and the title track which have made a great Cilla single but Johnny Johnson took it up the charts.This album also includes one of Elton Johns early compositions I CAN;T GO ON LIVING WITHOUT YOU.
SO there you are some of Cillas very best recordings are on these albums and its brill to the original minature sleeves from our queen of pop.Long may her music be heard and be appreciated for the emotion and power,she gave 100 percent to all she did and I will love her forever for it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been so much more, 23 Dec. 2015
This review is from: The Very Best Of (Audio CD)
This is a bit dissapointing,re releasing the same album that got to No 1 earlier this year seems a bit strange.
A new compilation featuring all of Cilla·s singles from 1963 to 1978 would have been a better idea.Her first single to miss the charts from 1970 CHILD OF MINE is wonderfull,HE WAS A WRITER,YOU YOU YOU,SILLY BOY.I·LL TAKE A TANGO,ALFIE DARLING and more,have never been collected together before,
Cilla·s passing is very sad but I am thrilled that her music will keep her memory alive,This album does contain all her hits but an extended version with all of all her singles would have done her proud.
Lets hope the success of this release will now see all of her original albums out on cd.

4.0 out of 5 stars A strong Debut from Markus, 17 Oct. 2015
This review is from: Fire (Audio CD)
This is almost like reading through Markus's diary and setting it to music.The songs are written from the heart and he has had his heart broken.This may sound like a deep miserable record but its far from it,what hits you straight away is the power of the voice,this boy can sing!
I hope this album will be a success and is the first of many,a talent this big needs to be heard.
The mushy love songs of his Westlife days are over and this is at times heavy stuff but it works.

5.0 out of 5 stars A return to form, 28 Aug. 2015
This review is from: Burning Bridges (Audio CD)
I must admit I have not really enjoyed a lot of Bon Jovi's recent albums but this one got me on the first listen.
The first three tracks are all excellent,Bon Jovi at their best infact all the tracks are good and I love the title track,a sing along party song.
The bootleg appearance of the packaging is strange and may put people off buying it.
I look forward to new material on a new label but this set is going to take some beating.
