The abbreviated version but fabulous


It is a pity that the London version of <Half a Sixpence> was truncated to make room for lots of dances in the Broadway run. While it might be true that the dances were one of the reasons for the great success of the American version, the 11 songs that were left make us wish to hear more. You see, as it appears on the RCA Victor re-release of the Broadway cast recording (09026-63691-2), this musical is one of the most joyous romps I have ever enjoyed on a recording or a stage!
Tommy Steele has retained most of his songs in this version, and that gives him almost as much to do as Merman had in "Annie Get Your Gun." And he carries it off with apparent ease. The fact that it is based on the charming H.G. Wells novel "Kipps" and/or the equally charming film version means nothing to us since the CD has only the songs; but knowing the plot does help us place each number in a dramatic context. The booklet is most helpful in letting us follow the story line. Grab this one and lobby for a recording of the complete London version, perhaps even with the dialogue!

Brilliant Music from a Brilliant Film


I loved the film and think that the music was so well chosen that it seemed to fit the film perfectly. My favourite is the classical piece by John Altman but I also like the other tracks. Songs like Make Your Own Kind Of Music really inspire hope in me. Hope that people can live their lives the way they want to without fear. It is played at a very important stage in the film where Ste has the courage to initiate a kiss with Jamie. Also at the end in the dance scene we know Jamie will be moving so the lines dream a little dream of me are very appropriate for Ste who will be left behind. Some of the tracks don't appear in the film but nonetheless they are worth listening to. Its a CD I listen to again and again and if these songs had been written for the film they couldn't have been more appropriate. Its a must have for any fans of the film.

Mariah is still the best!


Glitter is one of the best cds I've bought in a long time. Every song on the cd is great. I can't even think of a favorite because they are all so good! The ballads on this cd are way better than on Rainbow because Mariah seems to use her singing techniques from her first albums. People who say Mariah has changed are wrong. There's still the same old Mariah there we all loved. I think Mariah gets better each time she puts out an album. We don't need any of these haters out there. Mariah is the best singer ever and she will stay that way. Also, Glitter was a very good movie! Everyone should see it (it makes you cry though!) The cd Glitter will always be memorable to me because I bought it on September 11, 2001 a day we will all remember. Even though that day was horrible Mariah added a shimmer of glitter to my day. All Mariah fans will love this cd!!
