I just happened to search for it AGAIN one day, only to find that it was well within my budget that day so, it was an instabuy!

If you only thought he was the heart of "Rocky Horror Picture Show," well, think again.

Like a lot of people, I first became a fan of Tim Curry due to his performance in The Rocky Horror Picture Show. When I used to watch that at the infamous State Theater in Newark, DE, they'd show two of Tim's music videos before the film started - I Do The Rock and Paradise Garage. I thought the songs really rocked.

Years later, this Best Of was released and I just had to get it. Besides the great tunes I mentioned, there's a lot of other great songs on here, including a really cool reggae version of The Beatles' I Will and a live version of Bob Dylan's Simple Twist Of Fate. Most of the other songs are original tunes and they're a lot of fun.

I wish Tim had a bigger singing career than he did. He's got a really cool voice and it would have been great if he had recorded more.

If you liked Tim's singing in Rocky Horror, then there's a good chance you'd be entertained by this CD. Check it out if you get the chance.

Hello Tim Curry Fans!

DO NOT BUY THIS CD HERE!
WHY? Just look at the price. This is Out Of Print, yes, and it is starting to become rare, I stress 'starting to become'.

You can find this CD cheaper ANYWHERE ELSE (Ebay, online CD stores, Used Record shops, etc).

I have found this CD for $5 an up in used record stores and for way lower than $70 on ebay...try $30 and up.

It's a great CD and as of right now it's the only way to get any of his solo stuff in CD quality. First released in 1989.

You can also find the cassette for way cheaper too, try .99 Cents.

LOOK ELSEWHERE FOR THIS CD.

If you only thought he was the heart of "Rocky Horror Picture Show," well, think again. I have all his albums, and he is a very fine musician and songwriter. In this compilation, there are some terrific songs. "Cold Blue Steel," a Joni Mitchell cover, is a blow-you-away type of reworking of a great song. You won't recognize it but you probably will like it. Before Tim Curry did it, I honestly never realized it was about shooting up heroin. THAT'S how different he makes it. The rest are all also excellent.

Unfortunately, Tim Curry did not release more than three albums. All three were incredible. It is amazing that record companies always manage to find some of the worst songs from an artist to put on a 'best of' compilation. This is the case with the best of tim curry release. That being said, I finally broke down and bought this since I no longer have a decent turntable system and if I did I would buy all three of the original lp releases. This has not been remastered yet some songs seem to come across better than others. The song selection is not the best either as I mentioned. What happened to 'slow gin' (a blues masterpiece) or the cover of 'she's not there'? This does include 'I do the rock', 'cold blue steel and sweet fire' and 'working on my tan', so I cannot say it is not worth purchasing. This cd is a rarity and worth the price if you don't possess a decent analogue sound system. Buy this if you don't, if you do search for the original albums. I just received the cd a few days ago and have played it constantly in spite of the flaws. It is a tragedy that Tim Curry decided to write off his musical talent completely and be but one more thespian.

I have been eying this CD for YEARS, but for the longest time it was always shown costing nearly $100! (Clearly not in the budget of a poor college student.) I just happened to search for it AGAIN one day, only to find that it was well within my budget that day so, it was an instabuy! I have always been a huge fan of Tim Curry, and true to his eccentricity, this album does not disappoint. Some songs are definitely a little strange, but I still love his voice. If you are a Tim fan, you could not go wrong with this album.

This is a pretty basic greatest hits from Tim Curry's (I don't want to say "solo," but if you're looking for Rocky Horror, it's not on this album) musical career in the late '70's. Mr. Curry is as underrated a singer as he is an actor, so if you're already a big fan, you won't mind paying the price for this CD (upward of $70...it's so expensive because it's been out of print for quite some time),and it is worth it in my opinion, but for the price, it's really only for those who love Tim. And I do.

A solid album. Tim Curry has an amazing voice. However, it felt like some of the venues that the songs were recorded at were lacking in production values. Also it did not contain several of the songs I was looking for. On the plus side, I bought this as a used cd and it was pretty much perfect. No damage to the liner and the cd showed no signs of scratching.

Great compilation, I did miss I Put a Spell on You, from his Simplicity LP, but it had other greats such as Out of Pawn on it. IF you can locate his Simplicity LP on CD, that would be one to get also. I have two Simplicity LPs (one as a back up) because it is that good.
