Tony Christie: Cadogan Hall, London
Stephen Dalton, The Times, November 2008
THIS HAS BEEN a vintage year for triumphant comebacks by veteran singers, from Leonard Cohen to Neil Diamond. Now Tony Christie, who turned 65 in April, has pulled off a classy reinvention with his new album Made In Sheffield, featuring lush arrangements of songs written by Arctic Monkeys, Jarvis Cocker, the albums co-producer Richard Hawley and other fellow South Yorkshire natives.
