classic tunes sung by Rod Stewart
1 review about Rod Stewart: The Best Of The American Songbook

Rod Stewart sings these classic tunes so well.

  • Feb 2, 2011
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.

I generally agree with your take on music but I could not disagree with you more on this Rod Stewart stuff. I have heard a couple of these "Great American Songbook" discs and for the most part I thought they were awful. I suggest you listen to some of these tunes done in the 1940s and 1950s by the original artists. There is just no comparison as far as I'm concerned.
