CD Reviews

Wow!!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"As a life-long fan of Dirk Bogarde's and in posession of everything he has ever written, I was amazed to see this CD listed on Amazon's website whilst I was searching for Dirk Bogarde DVDs. On reading the accompanying notes to the CD, I can understand why he never mentioned it in any of his autobiographical volumes - he hated it. However, fans of his will love it. We know he is not a singer, but his dulcet tones and narrations of some beautiful old standards, make this CD a treasure. Behind him, the orchestration adds to the atmosphere and mood of the CD. This is the sort of CD that one listens to with soft lighting, relaxing on the sofa, with a nice glass of red in hand. For some this may be a little bit of 60s campiness, for me this was a rememberance of gentler times. Buy it - you'll love it."
