"You could have called this CD ' Unmistakably Dave' because he has that rare quality of instant identity. You can do the same with Sinatra, Nat King Cole and a handful of other singers but it's a skimpy list. Dave has grown into one of the best musical theatre stars in the world. I've worked with him on Aspects of Love and Sunset Boulevard and his performances have always been nothing short of thrilling. Oh, he's a lovely bloke as well.."
- Don Black OBE
