Wonderful Cliff [Fremus, 1CD]

Rarities compilation, including tracks from Cliff’s Cliff Richard Show 1969-1971. Excellent SBD stereo.

At some point, assuming the tapes weren’t wiped long ago, a DVD collection of the original Cliff Richard TV show… Summer Holiday (1970), It’s Cliff Richard (1970-71), Getaway With Cliff (1971)… will hurtle down the pike and remind us all what a terrific show it was.

Until then, Wonderful Cliff claims to round up no less than 22 songs from these programs, a skillful blend of recent recordings, one-off favorites and classic hits, pounded out with the kind of electrifying accompaniment that hallmarked his work a full decade earlier.
