This is indeed where to start
Clark’s focus and flair for wham detail (words and music) remains unchanged for 20 years — even gets a bit more enchanting on the newer tracks
I’m very fond of Raven’s robust remastered sound — makes Bear Family sound a bit too pristine
Equally fond of the programming they seek out — this time by Peter Shillito and Keith Glass
Can’t deny it — after a half hour I get tired of Clark’s singing, both voice and cadence. And that’s why other people had the hits with the material. You thrill at the words, but not the way he’s reading them. Y’know — some of the top poets were terrible behind a microphone.
