CD Reviews

Cliff in the eighties
Peter Durward Harris | Leicester England | 03/12/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This collection contains all except one (a re-recording of Living doll made for charity) of Cliff's UK top twenty hits during the period 1979 to 1988, which was a very successful period in Cliff's career. The tracks include True love ways (with the London Philharmonic Orchestra), Suddenly (with Olivia Newton John), She means nothing to me (with Phil Everly) and All I ask of you (with Sarah Brightman).

Of the solo tracks here, We don't talk anymore (a UK number one hit in 1979 - the oldest track here) and Mistletoe and wine (a Christmas song and a UK number one hit in 1988 - the newest track here) are the most famous but there are many other great songs including Dreaming, Some people and My pretty one.

Of course, the committed fans will (if they can afford it) already have the six-CD singles boxed set, but that omits all the duets that I mentioned earlier. Until a compilation of Cliff's duets is released, even committed fans may want this collection for those tracks.

Cliff had a few minor hits during the eighties that aren't included but this is a fine collection, proving that Cliff was able to adapt his music to appeal to a new generation of fans.

If you enjoy Cliff's music of the eighties and aren't bothered about (or already have) his other music, you'll love this set. If you buy this together with 40 golden greats (covering his earlier music), you'll have the majority of Cliff's hits from his first thirty years of music."
A Few Of These Songs Are Among The Best I Have Ever Heard !

"And I mean that! Cliff Richard has one of the most incredible voices I have ever heard in my life! If you like good 80s pop songs (from 1979-1988); you are missing out on a tremendous talent by not having this CD. Like me; several of you will remember three songs here. The outstanding duet with Olivia Newton-John called, Suddenly, plus you will also remember, Dreamin, and, We Don't Talk Anymore, but I think there are songs here that are just as good or even better than those three so I'll list a few of them. Little Town, and, Mistletoe And Wine, are beautiful tunes for the Holiday Season. The songs, Some People, True Love Ways, and his stunning duet with Sarah Brightman called, All I Ask Of You, are three more that are great and Sir Cliff's voice will send chills down your spine on, Daddy's Home, and, Ocean Deep. Speaking as a customer; I'm saying these songs are gorgeous. Several of these tunes are perfect to share with that special someone in your life.....Yes they are that romantic. I know my spouse sure loves this music.....Highly Recommended.
Final Note: Like the songs; the sound quality on this Disc is super!
Great pop album from Peter Pan of Pop

"Hi,this one is a great album from the man who dominated the U.K rock 'n roll and pop music for almost 3 decades.He made some alltime hits with the unforgettable songs in 60's and 70's.In 80's also he released some great tracks,which are very much in sync with that time.If you like 80's melodious pop and rock, this one is the right album for you.Every song from this album is great and you'll enjoy listening to it.
