Format: Audio CD
Despite his many hit singles and a number of excellent albums, Brook Benton (1931-1988) failed to reach the highest echelons of popularity, with his early death also a contributing factor to the unfortunate neglect of his vocal expertise. Fortunately, Benton's wide-ranging repertoire of rock and roll, rhythm and blues, the Great American Songbook and main-stream pop is now reaching CD for deserved re-evaluation and Jasmine's follow-up to the 2011-released THE SILKY SMOOTH TONES OF BROOK BENTON presents four more complete albums and bonus singles with a total of no fewer than fifty-nine tracks to enjoy.

Marketed on the basis of Brook's big hit, the included SO MANY WAYS, the 1960 released I LOVE YOU IN SO MANY WAYS, is a conventional collection of pop-orientated ballads mainly arranged and conducted by Belford Hendricks with a choir in occasional attendance. Some songs were co-composed by the singer (SO CLOSE, IN A DREAM etc.) and only the dreamy standard SOMEONE TO WATCH OVER ME remains connected with the past. Disc one continues in similar style and celebrates another hit single as its title concept song with THE BOO WEEVIL SONG AND ELEVEN OTHER GREAT HITS, released the following year, and retaining its pop intention, some Benton-composed numbers, and only veering out of gear with a uniquely revised hand-clapping pop version of the oldie FRANKIE AND JOHNNY.

The second disc contains THERE GOES THAT SONG AGAIN released in 1962 with The Quincy Jones Orchestra adding an unnecessary beat to a dozen standards. However WHEN I GROW TOO OLD TO DREAM, I LOVE PARIS, BREEZIN' ALONG WITH THE BREEZE BLUES IN THE NIGHT and LET ME SING AND I'M HAPPY are amongst song choices that fit the big band beat and overall the album hits the spot.

I've always been a big fan of Mr Benton but had always failed to find a cd with my favourite Brook track "Honey Babe" on it - NOW I'VE FOUND IT!!!

Not only have I found that track, I've got nearly 60 others to enjoy. Nat King Cole had a superb velvet voice but this guy is far better. If I could give this cd a 1 Million Star rating it wouldn't be enough, it's sensational but don't take my word for it, as Badfinger once said - "If You Want It Here It Is, Come And Get It". Worth 8 of anyone's money.
