Review by Dave Thompson,
This two-for-one pairing of two albums reminds listeners that Cliff Richard could still kick out the jams even into his forties (imagine, a rocker turning 40 – how revolutionary that seemed at the time!). Rock 'n' Roll Silver and The Rock Connection were originally recorded and released during 1983-1984, but never made so much sense as when they were paired together here. Rock 'n' Roll Silver was initially issued as part of the larger Silver project, marking Richard's 25th year in rock & roll. Working with a stripped-down band, the set caught Richard returning to his roots to fire out impassioned versions of the songs that moved him when he first cut "Move It" – things like "Lucille," "Tutti Frutti," "Be-Bop-A-Lula," and "Teddy Bear." There were also surprisingly strong revivals of past Richard hits "It'll Be Me" and "Move It" itself, and the result was one of Richard's most enjoyable albums ever. Plans to follow it up with a second collection of spirited rockers, but this time concentrating on new compositions, strangely came to naught. For whatever reason, the sessions simply didn't produce enough fresh material for an entire album. Just seven songs were completed, including another retread ("Willie and the Hand Jive"), but the Rock Connection concept remained on the release schedules. Half a dozen tracks were pulled from Rock 'n' Roll Silver, plus recent singles "Baby You're Dynamite" and "She Means Nothing to Me" (a hit duet with Phil Everly) and, though the ensuing mishmash was scarcely a big seller, blended into Rock 'n' Roll Silver, the end result is excellent.
