SIMON GILBERT A LEGEND IN HIS OWN LIFETIME!
The singing voice for Peter O’Toole for the great song “The Impossible Dream from the film, “Man Of La Mancha
Took over the role of leading man with Ginger Rodgers in “Mame” at Drury Lane Theatre
Took over the role of leading man to Cleo Lane in ” Showboat ” at The Adelphi Theatre
Simon Gilbert, now in his early eighties, had a mission two years ago, to not only retain the singing voice that he had attained in his earlier years but, in fact, to improve on it. It normally happens that, as the mechanics of the voice get older, the vocal cords thicken, the voice gets heavier and less wealdy, and less easy to manage.
Simon never believed that this should be the case. He set about the task of selecting classical songs that he loved, working on them continuously to hone them into his system.
Apart from these beautiful classical English, French and Italian much loved songs, Simon has added some recordings from earlier days which have orchestral accompaniment. These are popular and theatrical songs that show a completely different side of Simon’s versatility and, of course, point up the ” Then and Now ” purpose of the recording. This compilation, which is called, ” With All My Heart”, comes to you with all his heart.
