5.0 von 5 Sternen Landmark album deserves all the acclaim, 30. Juni 2004
Peter Durward Harris "Pete the music fan" (Leicester England) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Stardust (Audio CD)
Country purists may not like this album, but I love it. It introduced a whole new set of people to the songs of the thirties and forties that make up the majority of the original album. Unchained melody (from the mid-fifties) is very modern by comparison.
I knew very little about most of these songs when I first bought this album on vinyl, but I have since acquired a taste for the music from way back then. According to the liner notes, Moonlight in Vermont is Willie's favorite song. The original singer was Margaret Whiting, and while I now prefer her version, I might never have discovered her music if it wasn't for this album and its sequel, Somewhere over the rainbow.
The rest of this album includes covers of Stardust (Isham Jones, 1931), Georgia on my mind (made famous by Ray Charles, but originally a hit for Frankie Trumbauer in 1931), Blue skies (Ben Selvin, 1927), All of me (two versions both topped the American charts in 1932, one by Louis Armstrong and the other by Paul Whiteman), September song (Walter Huston, 1939), On the sunny side of the street (Ted Lewis, 1930), Don't get around much anymore (Duke Ellington, Glen Gray and the Ink spots all had top ten hits with it in 1943) and Someone to watch over me (Gertrude Lawrence (1927).
Two bonus tracks recorded at the same sessions, slightly more modern, are included here. Scarlet ribbons fits easily with the other songs. I can see clearly now does not really fit. Although it is a brilliant version, it is just a different style from the other songs here. Even so, I'm glad it was included.
Almost all these songs were included on the Australian compilation All the songs I've loved before, which has also been released in Britain. That compilation (which I've already reviewed) claims to include all the songs from this album, but September song is missing (probably by accident). In any case, I bought this before I bought that compilation.
This was a landmark album when released and was a huge seller, deservedly so.
