"Anthony Newley was a superb entertainer. Acting each song he had the ability to turn any song into a magical story with his expressive hands and total unique singing style. Here are his greatest hit ballads plus some new songs from the genius of Newley. Listen to 'White Boy' and you'll agree that Newley is not only right, but sorely missed.

"Although an Anthony Newley fan, I am deeply disappointed in this CD. I can only suppose that most of the songs were recorded after a long illness. Age alone would hardly account for the weakness and deterioration of his voice. Only the first track, "The Candy Man," sounds like Anthony Newley at his best. His other signature songs, "Who Can I Turn To?" and "What Kind of Fool Am I?" are rendered in a weak, quavery voice. How this CD could be titled, "The Best of Anthony Newley" is a mystery to me. Buy the CD soundtrack of "Dr. Dolittle" instead."
Newley at his best

"This is Newley in recent years, showing all the skills gained from so many years in the business. There are great new versions of Newley standards such as "The Candy Man" and "What Kind of Fool" and also some new songs, showing that he could still write a quality song at that stage in his life. At times the arrangements are not up to the vocal power of Mr Newley, however on the whole this was a good album to sign off with. If only he had recorded more during this period - fans would have certainly loved a live album."
