Cliff Richard - From a Distance (2005) Retail CD
This double cd, the remastered gorgeous live recording of Cliff's 1989 double sell-out concert at Wembley stadium is superior in every possible way to the 1990 original cd album. Unlike the original cd which only featured half the tracks from the show, almost all the songs performed by Cliff are included on here, including two from the Cliff and the Shadows set left off the DVD (smooth and sensual versions of "In The Country and "The Young Ones"). Whilst the 1990 album sounded was heavily edited to produce the clinically perfect sound of a studio recording, this cd is back to basics with a heaviermore…, grittier, deeper live sound with resonance, power and atmosphere. It's a spectacular, stirring experience, awesome atmosphere, sensitively filmed, amazing sound and hugely talented performers. The band sound rockier and both Cliff's vocals and the bluesy-soulful ache of Cliff's voice and John Clark's guitar are stronger than ever. The set-list is fantastic; it opens with a half-hour tribute to the 1950s TV show "Oh Boy" on which Cliff first made it, with Cliff joined by the Dallas Boys, the Vernons Girls and The Kalin Twins. There are sweeping harmonic rock n roll medleys, as well as solo numbers. Highlights are (for me) Cliff's solo version of "Always" and the harmonic versions of "The Girl Can't Help It" and "The Glory Of Love" as well as the enchanting final medley. A taster of Cliff and the Shadows' set follows as mentioned to close CD 1. CD 2 is devoted to the 20-song high-octane Cliff solo set, backed magnificently by Cliff's live band led by guitarist John Clark, and is dedicated to one of Cliff's most stunningly beautiful and powerful live sets ever. It opens with a heavily rocked-up "Wired For Sound" followed by a passionnately aching "Dreamin'" (two of my all time favourite songs). It ranges from superb early rock n roll covers ("Shake Rattle and Roll", "Good Golly Miss Molly") to classy modern ballads ("Dreamin'", "Joanna", "The Best Of Me") to gospel rock ("Fighter/Thief In The Night", "From A Distance") and dance ("Stronger Than That", "Just Don't Have The Heart"). The recording is a production masterpiece. Possibly Cliff's band's finest hour. The songs from Cliff's then latest album "Stronger" and previous (the fantasy-rich "Always Guaranteed") have darker, sultrier, heavier mixes that lean towards rock and take them out of the pop sphere ("Two Hearts", on the studio album a rather unremarkable ballad imo, here showcases possibly the finest guitar I've ever heard, and Cliff is fired up too; and the soaring and lusciously sung "Remember Me", a brilliantly structured Alan Tarney composition, is unforgettable as Cliff is lifted up on the platform.) Cliff's biggest selling single worldwide "We Don't Talk Anymore" is given an upbeat dance remix with harmonies that melt you like chocolate and just suck you in. The gospel songs are uplifting and majestic and you feel a sense of the warmth and emotion that engulfed Wembley stadium on the night the cd was recorded. Cliff is clearly transported by that feeling as is evident as he dedicates an anguished "The Best Of Me" to the crowd and emotionally performs what has since become a concert perennial, the peace anthem "From A Distance". It's an inimitably atmospheric concert; huge sound; larger-than-life band; a solo voice which sounds as beautiful on here as anything ever could. Soak up this stunner of a live album on your walkman, in the car, or at home, and buy the magnificent accompanying DVD to savour the visual spectacle of "The Event". I am addicted to it and don't want it to end when I play the cd. I can't describe how fantastic it is. If you are a fan of pop/rock music, you will surely fall in love with this live album. Don't miss it!
