"Like a lot of people, I first became a fan of Tim Curry due to his performance in The Rocky Horror Picture Show. When I used to watch that at the infamous State Theater in Newark, DE, they'd show two of Tim's music videos before the film started - I Do The Rock and Paradise Garage. I thought the songs really rocked.
Years later, this Best Of was released and I just had to get it. Besides the great tunes I mentioned, there's a lot of other great songs on here, including a really cool reggae version of The Beatles' I Will and a live version of Bob Dylan's Simple Twist Of Fate. Most of the other songs are original tunes and they're a lot of fun.
I wish Tim had a bigger singing career than he did. He's got a really cool voice and it would have been great if he had recorded more.
If you liked Tim's singing in Rocky Horror, then there's a good chance you'd be entertained by this CD. Check it out if you get the chance."

"Hello Tim Curry Fans!
DO NOT BUY THIS CD HERE!
WHY? Just look at the price. This is Out Of Print, yes, and it is starting to become rare, I stress 'starting to become'.
You can find this CD cheaper ANYWHERE ELSE (Ebay, online CD stores, Used Record shops, etc).
I have found this CD for $5 an up in used record stores and for way lower than $70 on ebay...try $30 and up.
It's a great CD and as of right now it's the only way to get any of his solo stuff in CD quality. First released in 1989.
You can also find the cassette for way cheaper too, try .99 Cents.
LOOK ELSEWHERE FOR THIS CD."
One of our greats...

"If you only thought he was the heart of "Rocky Horror Picture Show," well, think again. I have all his albums, and he is a very fine musician and songwriter. In this compilation, there are some terrific songs. "Cold Blue Steel," a Joni Mitchell cover, is a blow-you-away type of reworking of a great song. You won't recognize it but you probably will like it. Before Tim Curry did it, I honestly never realized it was about shooting up heroin. THAT'S how different he makes it. The rest are all also excellent."
