TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICEon 29 May 2012
Anthony George Newley (1931-1999) was an actor, singer and songwriter. He enjoyed success as a performer in such diverse fields as rock and roll and stage and screen acting. This new compilation brings together performances from his singles and EP/album releases covering the period 1959 to 1961. The sound quality is very good indeed and the track selection gives you a picture of his vocal styles and character. He could shout out a song with the best of the rock n' rollers but could also sing sweetly and interpret perfectly as with for example "This Time the Dream's on Me". He was very popular with his fans throughout his career and even when the media appeared to turn against him he changed tack and took on major musical theatre roles such as "Scrooge" that saw him fill not only West End theatres but provincial venues for several years. His unique style of singing brought him hits and fans, his song writing with Leslie Bricusse the respect of his peers. This CD is a good sample of his hits and album material. A good sleeve note and colourful packaging make this one stand out in the racks. Running time approx 72 minutes.

Two things about Anthony Newley :(1)The boy could sing ! (2)He was never boring. The 28 tracks on this CD have been issued before in various packages , but what strikes you with this CD is the sheer versatility of the man. Smash hits like "Why" and "Do You Mind" alongside novelty numbers like " Strawberry Fair" , plus some rock 'n' roll and several beautiful ballads like "If She Should Come To You",and classics like "What Kind Of Fool Am I ?" make this album a real treat. Newley was a difficult artist to pigeon-hole because of his sheer versatility , but this album does him justice.

Anthony Newley was my Mother's favourite singer and the radio would be turned up whenever one of his tracks was played.
This album brings back many happy childhood memories.
Even today his songs are of such a good standard that it is surprising you don't hear more cover versions. Maybe they have too many words for today's repetitive junk. :)

Although many of his hits were included on this CD,quite a few of the songs were recorded towards end of his career when I wasn't as keen on his recordings,but does show his range.

Most of Tony's hits are on here - if they all were I'd give it 5!

Anthony Newley was a multi talented actoe/singer and one time wife of Joan Collins. This CD gives us all his hits and B sides. His more up-tempo songs are more to my liking alondg with the rock ballads. The humorous songs and the show songs leave me cold, hence the 3 stars
