Roger Whittaker - Now & Then - Greatest Hits 1964 - 2004 (2004) Retail CD
This collection, heavily advertised on TV and timed to coincide with a tour later this year, certainly has its attractions.Roger had a string of hits towards the early end of the period 1964-2004, and has remained a very popular entertainer since, although his appearances in the UK have been less in recent years. He possesses a fine, easy bass/baritone voice, and a strong whistle, as in "Mexican Whistler".There is, of course, already available a "Very Best Of..." album at budget price, which contains all his original hits, and some other varied and well known material. On this collection the hitsmore… are in fact re-recordings dating from the late 70s, when he changed record labels, and the Skye Boat Song is the hit version with Des O'Connor, who did not feature on the earlier recording. The rest of this new collection is made up of more contemporary songs, and a few new recordings.Roger's voice has not diminished with age; the sound quality is, however sharper, more dynamic, perhaps, but less warm. It's a matter of personal taste, I guess. I prefer the earlier collection but acknowledge that many will prefer the fresher sound of this one; you pays your money and takes your choice. In any event it's a fine collection for easy listening and worthy of the full five stars.
