Album Review

Reviewed 2018-02-24
released Dec 1 2017. No FCC's.

Did we not get "Roll With The Punches"?
Released three months earlier in 2017, it was his blues record, but we have this, another album of standards which soo many singers, both fresh faced and "of a certain age" seem to feel will help them reach greater audiences, and Van Morrison is no exception. His sax playing gets some exposure, and the guitar playing is nice. A couple instrumentals fill out this single cd equivalent to a double vinyl. total run time is about 60 mins. Each track is a stand alone with proper fade or cadenced ending. A perfect example of super fine recording quality throughout, with the famous growl of of voice front and center. He has tons of background and is super popular since 1965's "Gloria". There are some tracks he is revisiting here, and one which was originally put out in 1999! Details follow. I wanna feature his take of, "Unchained Melody" on my show. I'll tell you all about what else is cool about the selections on a separate sheet attached to the CD.
