Not the Dave Willetts I have seen on stage in many musicals...
on 25 June 2012
Clearly Dave Willetts concert fans will enjoy this CD and I can understand their joy at this compilation being released. However, as someone who has not been to a Dave Willetts concert and only seen him in the confines of classic musicals this was not the CD for me. Ok, there are some medleys from the shows but for the most part the orchestrations for the live tracks were too hyper for me. Also, I found his voice higher than in the parts he has played on stage and here I am thinking of South Pacific where he was excellent on all the major ballads in the show but sadly they are not on this CD.I can acknowledge the performance of songs from "Phantom" as being very good. So the message is, if you like Dave Willetts in the shows then this is not necessarily the collection for you. On the other hand if you want a good recording of him "in concert" then it probably will suit you well.
