'The' set that is undoubtable the best of the best of Cilla Black,
This review is from: Completely Cilla [1963-1973] [DVD Included] (Audio CD)
'Completely Cilla' is a fantastic 6 disc set (comprising of 5 cd's and a dvd), and truly represents the commencing of Cilla's 50th year in showbusiness (2013). The 139 golden originals aptly correlates with her golden anniversary! The set consists of a 30+ page booklet unlike no other, where Cilla recounts memories relating to her singing career; in addition there are interviews given by Cliff Richard, and numerous producers, backing singers, etc - each talking about there experience working with the singer that is the biggest selling female singer of the sixties! The booklet also contains some rare unseen photos, and equally the dvd has rare BBC footage, including a duet with Cliff Richard - and fantastically the dvd is region free! As for the 139 songs, from the 250+ songs that she has ever recorded, they represent 'The Beatles'' legendary producer Sir George Martin, who worked with Cilla between the decade, 1963 -1973. The set is a tribute to a very unique and special relationship between singer and producer, with fantastic songs, from 'You're My World', 'Anyone Who Had A Heart', 'Alfie', 'Something Tells Me' to 135 other beautiful songs that are equally fantastic. Here they all are in chronolgical order, displaying Cilla's superb vocal range that makes her the iconic lady she is today!
