Customer Review

on 13 March 2010
I agree largely with both of the reviews already published. There are one or two quibbles over what has been included and what has been ommitted. It's great to hear some of Elks 60's material, which I had not heard before and is very good, as well as some Vinegar Joe.

What I wanted to draw attention to is the difference the re-mastering makes. Whilst not perfect, the extra clarity given to her most familiar material is I think revelatory. For example, I have always loved her version of Nights in White Satin, but preferred to hear it live or the orchestral version from her Amazing album. Somehow the original with its swirling synths sounded a little dated. But wow. Just listen to it now. There is textural interest and depth in the music while Elk gives a performance of thrilling intensity. Fantastic. And the same can be said for so many of the recordings in all their new shiny fresh splendour. Add to this a remastered Superstar (possibly my favourite by Elk)and you have THE essential Elkie Brooks compilation. For a ridiculously low price.
