Connie Fisher (Universal)

She’s left The Sound Of Music behind, but the straight-laced singer with whom Andrew Lloyd Webber solved his Maria problem still sounds like she’s auditioning rather than performing.

Secret Love is drained of both mystery and romance; Someone To Watch Over Me is pedestrian at best and comatose at worst.

She only sounds at home on Memory, a melody so devoid of charisma that it could only have come from the pen of Lloyd Webber himself. WILL FULFORD-JONES
