 Cilla as good as Dusty?

| | See all GullibleTraveller's reviews (2)

In the 60s there were 2 great female singers, the late, great Dusty Springfield and the vivacious and dynamic powerful Cilla! Cilla fans have waited years for a DVD release of some of her earlier tv recordings, and while this is good it could have been great. Dusty's Live at the BBC is brilliant because it highlights Dusty at her best in the 60s. There are only a few recordings on this DVD of Cilla from the 60s, because her advisors have chosen better visual quality recordings that lack the rawness dramatic dynamism that we all loved Cilla for. Where are the truly memorable recordings of her Cilla shows from 1968? Where is Yo-Yo; Love's Just A Broken Heart; Anyone Who Had A Heart; Is It Love? There are so many exclusions it is a real shame that the compilers didn't choose more wisely. Still, this is better than nothing, but I hope it's not too long (probably be celebrating Cilla's 50 years in showbiz in 2013!) before we see more memorable archive material emerge from the Cilla vault. Buy it 'cause it's Cilla, and she's always worth watching. Good as Dusty? Well, Dusty had soul and was probably the best female singer Britain ever produced (Cilla would agree), but Cilla was also brilliant, she had heart and charisma - some of which is seen here, but oh, what a lost opportunity to add some of the grainier but more thrilling tv recordings. Still, it's a must for Cilla fans.

Top 100 Music Reviewer

It's wonderful to hear Cilla's hits coming one after the other but the most exciting thing about this new set is the DVD!

Previous reviews have complained about the lack of certain footage but as explained by others a lot of 60's footage from many of our finest stars was wiped by the TV companies.

That aside the performances here from Cilla are simply stunning and prove just how good she was singing live, how well I remember her singing 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover so it's really good to see that again, infact the dvd is worth more than the price of this set alone.

EMI have released Cilla's entire back catalogue on download only having renaged on the cd release promised for last year, I feel this is an insult to Cilla as her contemporaties such as Dusty Springfield, Petula Clark, Sandie Shaw and Kiki Dee have had their entire back catalogue released on cd with the exception of Kiki's earlier Fontana material.

That aside this is a brilliant piece of nostalgia.

This career spanning 3-disc set is aimed to give everyone a great insight into Cilla The Singer. All her hits and album highlights are here as well as previously unreleased material and songs which debut on CD format. The extra plus is the inclusion of a bonus REGION 0 / PAL DVD.

The DVD contains footage from the BBC TV archives but contrary to what the previously reviewer implies classic sixties footage was NOT overlooked! In reality, we painstakingly trawled through the archives but very little existed from this decade as SO many 'Cilla' shows had been wiped, lost or damaged!

It simply would have been crazy to release a DVD containing mainly covers. We simply had to give fans the best of what we could find even if that did mean picking material from the 1970s!

This is truly the best in every aspect of what we could find from the vaults at EMI and the BBC. The collection pushes the realms of what fans should expect from a budget release and I think raises the benchmark real high!
