A "must have" CD for Peter Allen afficianados!
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Prior to 1998, you could search the world for a Peter Allen CD (any Peter Allen CD!) and still come up empty handed. With this CD you can finally trash those treasured but old and scratched Peter Allen vinyl albums. There isn't the "crisp" Peter Allen sound of his later Broadway years but rather an austere, almost amateur "coffee house" recording tone to most of these songs. At first, it seems like poor quality but later you realize that its perfect for Allen's unique range of throaty tones and melodies. Its Peter Allen doing Peter Allen. It grows on you to the point where you realize that you wouldn't want it any other way. Other recordings will capture the glitz and glitter that was the later Peter Allen. This CD captures the pure essence of his talent."
