Cliff in the 70's

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Dave Thompson

The third volume in Disky's ever so ambitious five-CD Cliff Richard anthology is, perhaps, the most muddled of them all.

A well-balanced collection would note both phases; this set, however, is so skewed toward the later era that the disc is all but over before the darkest days dawn. Of course, the quality of music does not suffer from such selectiveness. "Green Light," "Devil Woman," and "I'm Nearly Famous" represent peaks that, even in his prime, Richard only sporadically grasped -- and, arguably, Richard's output through the late '70s was the most consistent it had ever been. Once, his tastes were easily led astray. Now, the decisions were all his own, and he reveled in the freedom. 1970s is the sound of the ensuing celebrations.
