The album contain a number of tracks from other CD I have of Russell Watson and there are many other artist on this album. It would have been nice if ONLY Russell Watson was the artist not all the others. Hayley Westernra is a great artist as well, who also is on the album.
Love this album, great to listen to. I bought it mainly because of the Star Trek song on it, Where My Heart Will Take Me. I really liked all the other tracks as such a good selections of songs and variety.
I recently discovered Yanni, and his stunning album "Inspirato". Russell Watsons is one of the artists featured on this album. I really liked his voice, so I decided to buy his CD. I should have checked the songs list. Platinum Collection. I expected something original, something new. Something by Russell Watson. He has a great voice. But listening another version of tired old classics, well, not exciting. Can somebody recommend a good tenor with his own repertoire? Something that one can be surprised by?
Great selection of tracks from 'The Voice', if I had to moan I'd say they should have left out Shaun Ryder's contribution on Barcelona but Russell Watson's voice shines out despite that. Had the opportunity to see him in concert this year and he seems a genuinely nice guy, really down to earth.
When Russel switched record-company last year his old one couldn't just stand by and watch. They also had to release a "new" cd at the same time. There has not been a shortage of RW-compilations out there. Sure there are two new live tracks from the BBC here. But with over 90 % of the material allready avliable ellswhere tihs is not good at all. A complete lacking of info about RW in the booklett let's us now that this is only an atempt to milk the last pounds out of his fans pockets. Only for the serious collector who must have everything with him.
But for the newcommer a great place to start. All of RWs best recordnigs on one 80 minute disc.
