Hummin' to Myself (2004)
A WASTE OF TIMEi hate this cd..it is a terrible attempt to sing standards , and i was very sad that Linda did not return to her true class of standard material that i have always loved with her past recordings, What's New & her other follow ups to them.
This cd is nothing like that of those clasic recordings that Linda did so well, it is very boring, and musically is it just depressing.
Better luck next time Linda.

Patrizio the Great!This is such a great romantic, fun and completely enjoyable cd.
Patrizio is a wonderful singer and gives new life to some great old Italian favorites.
Many other singers have recorded in Italian and not hit the mark so easily as Patrizio does with his very first offering!
Not since Connie Francis , have these songs been done with such class and care.
Connie Francis is the Queen of Italian song, but now it seems we have a new King to hold court with her, and Patrizio is an Italian Dream come true!

Other Side Of The Rainbow
MELBA SHINES!THIS IS ONE OF MELBA'S 80'S - 90'S LP'S THAT HAS BEEN SO LONG FORGOTTEN BY HER LABEL CAPITOL ,WHO STILL CHOOSES TO INGORE ALL HER FANS AND RE ISSUE ALL HER CATALOG OF LPS FROM HER DECADE OF HUGE RnB HITS FOR THE LABEL.
CAPITOL MADE A FORTUNE OFF OF MELBA MOORE THROUGHOUT THE 80'S AND INTO THE EARLY 90'S , AND ACTUALLY KEPT THE LABEL EASILY AFLOAT WITH HER AWESOME MEGA POPULAR RECORDINGS.
SO MANY LP'S AND HITS , BUT STILL SO MANY STILL NOT RE ISSUED , BUT THIS RE ISSUE IS STILL A WELCOME ADDITION TO ANY MELBA COLLECTION.
"OTHER SIDE OF THE RAINBOW" IS ONE OF MELBA'S FINEST, AND DISPLAYS HER GIANT VOCAL TALENTS WITH PURE ENJOYMENT!
OVERLOOK THE ABSENT TRACK LISTING AND BUY THIS RARE MELBA MOORE RE ISSUE BEFORE IT IS GONE..I AM SURE YOU WILL LOVE IT IF YOU LOVE HEARING A TRULY GIFTED SINGER AT HER BEST IN SONG!

Natalie the Legend..in her own right!Natalie Cole has long been a favorite of mine since her first 70's lp's, and has gotten better and better with time, once a troubled girl in the shadow of her legendary great dad Nat King Cole, struggled with drugs and personal tradgedy,she rose like a Phoenix to prove her talent and pure class is that of her legendary beloved Dad.
This cd is great , and returns Natalie to her RnB sounds as well as new territory, where she does what she does best..makes Music MAGIC!
This is a cd so worth buying i can't even begin to tell all you music lovers out there, but if your familiar with the lovely Natalie, you already know she is a legend in her own right , as well as an acomplished and stunning singer of songs..a real class act!
Do not miss this new cd from Natalie Cole!

Duets: An American Classic (2006) Top Seller
GREAT WITHOUT VIKKITHIS CD IS GREAT AND DID NOT NEED A DUET WITH VIKKI CARR, THE DUETS WITH KD LANG , STREISAND, AND DION ARE THE BEST TRACKS BY FAR, FORGET VIKKI CARR..SHE IS JUST NOT IN THE GROOVE ANYMORE WITH HER CAREER OR SHE WOULD BE AT LEAST TRYING TO PUT OUT NEW MUSIC.
I LIKE VIKKI CARR FOR SURE , BUT SHE IS GETTING PUSHED IN THE PAST BECAUSE SHE IS NOT MAKING A STRONGER RECORDING EFFORT.
LET'S HOPE THIS CD GETS MORE OF THE OLDER SINGERS THE DESIRE TO RECORD AGAIN, TONY PROVES AT 80, A SINGER CAN STILL SING GREAT!

TWO GREAT RANDY LP'S !I was very pleased to see both these lp's finally on cd.
It is long overdue!
Windsong was the first Randy lp i ever bought so many years ago, and always loved it as well as Nightline.
Randy Crawford is a wonderful singer of great music, and her choice of songs is always right on the money!
Windsong has the stunning tracks "He Reminds Me" and a forgotten movie theme."One Hello" , both great songs that all will love!
There are so many great songs on this cd , it's hard to single out any more ..so if you love Randy Crawford and the light jazz sound sung by a true music legend, buy this awesome 2 lp on 1 cd before it's gone!

Silver & Gold (2004)
VANESSA SHINES BRIGHT THIS HOLIDAY SEASON!It's been a while since we have had a new studio recording from the beautiful Vanessa Williams.
I am delighted to welcome her return to our ears with this outstanding collection of Holiday Songs.
SILVER and GOLD is a pure delight!
Vanessa's voice simply shimmers on all of the tracks.
The title track ,"Silver and Gold" is the first cover of the classic song that i have ever heard that is in a class all it's own!
She delivers us a totally updated , but still traditional version of the most loved legendary Burl Ives tune.
There are other standouts too , like the upbeat light jazzy.."Winter Weather" ,
the r&b "December Lullaby" and then there's the song i thought would never be redone so well..the Carpenters classic..
"Merry Christmas Darling".
While no one will ever compete with the original vocals of Karen Carpenter ...
Vanessa does not try to compete , but rather magically enhances the song for today's sound , with a more upbeat but still romantic yearning in her sterling vocals.
The crowning glory of this cd is the final track..a very old classic christmas song ,first written for Judy Garland in the late 40's...
"Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas".
Vanessa Williams performs this classic with her flawless and os -so smooth vocal gifts.
Vanessa Williams fans this cd is a must!
And any one else that loves Christmas ...add this new classic cd to your collection.
You'll be glad you did!
Thanks to the multi talented Diva herself Vanessa Williams ..
this Christmas will surely be..
"Silver and Gold "!

Sings Italian Favorites/More Italian Favorites (2004)
CONNIE FRANCIS SINGS ITALIAN THE BEST!As a child,i remember my Grandmother listening to Connie Francis Italian Albums every Sunday morning after church.It's one of my best childhood memories because of the magic Conne Francis made in these recordings of great Italian songs.
No other singer can touch an Italian song quite like the Legendary Connie Francis.
For years the only way to listen to her Italian songs was on lp's ,then they were all put out of print and of coarse we all traded in our old turntables for cd players, but so much music has been not heard in so long..
Connie Francis Italian songs are back and sounding better than ever..
What a pleasure it is to hear them so clear, and hear the Superb voice of Miss Connie Francis through the air.
Any Italian ..or fan of Connie Francis can't miss this cd!
It's just great!
So get it ...
and listen to it on a Sunday morning and feel the magic of Italy come to life with the outstanding..
Miss Connie Francis!
