4.0 out of 5 stars Holding Back The Tears 14 April 2000
By Ralph Quirino - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I first stumbled across "Little" Jimmy Scott thanks to a friend who sent me a copy of All The Way, one of the most beautiful albums I own. I was immediately taken in by Scott's voice, a high, lonesome, silky instrument that can wring tears out of the most cold-hearted cad. I then bought the equally superb Lost & Found, a great album filled with stuff Jimmy had recorded in the early seventies which saw very limited release. Again, that album blew me away thanks to a sumptuous reading of "Unchained Melody" that made me completely forget The Righteous Borthers' version. Dream was another winner with broody production and gritty edges that suited Jimmy's voice to a tee. Heaven was a little more problematic, the songs a trifle unsure, the production a shade clinical. Holding Back The Years is a fine album of great modern-day (for the most part) covers. It's astounding to hear Jimmy emote his way through Bryan Ferry's "Slave To Love" and Prince's "Nothing Compares 2 U" And, after the shock of hearing him sing "Jealous Guy" wears off, you listen to the album again. And again. And again. You think: "How effortless, how passionate. How sad, how beautiful." That's the power of Jimmy Scott. Aren't a fan? Never heard of him? Think of what you're missing! Gorgeous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holding Back the Years 9 Aug 2001
By chandler school - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Oh man!!! It's like Jimmy Scott stepped out of the wings, tapped Bryan Ferry on the shoulder and politely wrenched the microphone from his hand. I can imagine him saying something like "Take five my man, let a true veteran show you how this song is supposed to sound..."
If anyone has heard Scott's rendition of "Slave to Love", it's easy to forget that it's a cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular 4 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This album is Jimmy at his best. The singing is superlative. The instrumentation lush. It is a must have for any Jimmy Scott fan or, for that matter, any fan of Jazz vocalization. You go Jimmy!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! 23 Jun 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This album of Jimmy Scott's is filled with one great song after another, and except for Billie Holidays's, "Lady in Satin," I can't think of another album where a vocalist has managed such a collection of perfect interpretations. In some cases, Mick Hucknall's "Holding Back the Years" for example, the listener is given a version that complements the original. But, as with Brian Ferry's "Slave to Love", there are times when Jimmy Scott gives us an almost new song. This is the ultra dry champagne of Jimmy's recording career.
