Rod Stewart has the ability to take classic songs and make them his own. My favorite track is "What A Wonderful World". Rod is accompanied by Stevie Wonder on this track. Stevie lends his talents playing the harmonica on this song. It sounds very special. "Bye Bye Blackbird" is another gem of a song. It is an upbeat tune with excellent trumpet and clarinet playing. Rod sets a romantic tone with the song "I Can't Get Started". The trumpet playing and piano playing is so relaxing. "These Foolish Things" is another song I love on this disc. This song has a groovy bass tone. The saxophone playing gives this tune a jazzy sounding quality. "Beyond The Sea" has a wistful romantic quality. This song is very pleasant to listen to. The musical arrangements on this song are so good. "You'll Never Know" is a new song to me. It is a song about a special person. This is a song has good background vocals. I love the ooh's ooh's in the background. "They Can't Take That Away From Me" is another song about how the memory of a special someone can linger for a life time. The saxophone sounds cool on this song. I like the track "Time After Time". Rod's vocals are so warm and inviting on this song "Long Ago And Far Away" is a song about how a loved one can change a person's outlook on life. I love the music on this disc. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys easy listening music.
