Like Presley, who was certainly Richard's key influence, Cliff's popularity wound up pushing him ever so gradually to the status of an all-around entertainer.
Cliff continued to have hits in the '60s, even after he and the Shadows disbanded in , but he split his time between pop and Christian music; in the early '70s, he focused on hosting a variety show on the BBC.

First I must say I do not own this box set,however I have listened to it online. I am not a huge fan of Cliff,but I have known of him ever since he first appeared on TV and radio in the later 50's,girlfriends at the time loved him,I prefered Elvis. However looking back,I do like his early rockin' songs before he went too soft.
Funny - the only character assassination difficult word, I know seems to be on the author. Why do the dullest commenters always resort to insult on the name of the reviewer? Why is it all so personal if you're not worried about your idol's ability to take it? Well Janis, just as respected artists set themselves up to be praised or denigrated by those of lesser talent i.
Anyone who writes what Green did about an entertainment icon is obviously suffering from Tall Poppy syndrome. He must surely know that it's pointless to have a go at Sir Cliff because the millions of diehard fans will quickly reduce Green to absolute irrelevancy, which is the deserved fate of most critics. He is perfectly entitled to dislike the album but why the media engages people to provide us with their personal and very subjective opinions about something which most of them can't do themselves, I'll never know.
I don't think character assassination spelt it correctly this time on Cliff Richard is too strong a term. This is a review on a album by a artist called Cliff Richard. It takes one and paragraphs of thinly veiled insults before the reader gets a smidgen of real information on the album.
Mr Green needs to forget about the image of the artist, and focus on the content of what the artist delivers. Forget about naffness, put away the agest remarks, and forget about the comparisons, it's all about the content. See who's fairs better Mr Green as a singer, or Mr Richard as a music critic.
As dumb as this sounds, I have a sneaking suspicion Mr Richard may well draw in more readers as a journalist than Mr Green. Baz to answer your question Conway Twitty is dead. Jerry Lee Lewis is not dead but is still producing excitement on record and in his 'live' shows.
He celebrated his 76th birthday last month and is still The Killer. Albums Last man standing and Mean old man the two most recent both selling well and very enjoyable, showing a true original still having what it takes. I am sure Cliff Richard would not want to hear one of his fan's calling one of his idols 'loopy'. Yes Ian, those albums aren't bad. However, I've seen a couple of interviews with Jerry Lee in the last few years and he wasn't making much sense to me or the audience.
He might still be able to knock out a killer tune but intellectually, I don't think he's moved on much from about 20 years ago when he was arrested for throwing empty beer bottles at the Graceland gates in the middle of the night. Well Baz yet again facts seem to elude you when it comes to Jerry Lee I don't think you know enough to comment! Jerry did indeed arrive outside Graceland a few months before Elvis died after Elvis had called him as they were friends. It was not beer bottles it was a gun that a local sheriff had given Jerry that was in the car.
The security at Graceland panicked the police came and arrested Jerry. He was released a short time after by the sheriff who confirmed his story. As for interviews Jerry is usually not given a chance to answer most questions, there is usually a pause as he considers an answer and in this quick answer celebrity world they are not use to that.But it's all, in the game All in the wonderful game That we know as love You have words with him And your future's looking dim But these things Your heart can rise above Once in a while he won't call But it's all, in the game Soon he'll be there at your side With a sweet bouquet And he'll kiss your lips And caress your waiting finger tips.
