CD Reviews

Forever Classic, Original Hits - NOT!
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This Dutch import is a waste of money!Title: Original Hits Sub-title: Forever ClassicABSOLUTELY NOT! Don't let the low price fool you. This is a 1997 recording of all those songs we Baby Boomers remember. Great, lush instrumental backgrounds. Good recording quality.BUT: Petula's voice has changed in 30 years - more sophisticated, yes; more lyrical, yes; BUT - NARROWER RANGE. So, all of the songs have been re-arranged, in a vain attempt to cover her shortcomings. Thus, all of the "sing-along" value is lost. The timing is messed up. The notes are different. The "Las Vegas" style endings don't mesh with the original feel and style.Here there are all song titles, but they come together about like love beads on a yuppie stock broker!The review software won't let me assign NO STARS, so it has to be ONE!Don't SLEEP IN THIS SUBWAY!The good news is that it only cost me $7!"
A pale shadow of the original

"Re-recorded long after Pet's voice was at its peak and without the benefit of Tony Hatch to make sure everything was first-rate. Save up for a sixties original and give this rather sad album a miss!"
