Product Description

Product Description

A new album from Georgie Fame is always an understated event - no fanfares or marketing hype needed! His popularity garnered over fifty-plus years guarantees an eager audience for each and every new album. 'Lost in a Lover's Dream' is a laid-back affair of romantic ballads and philosophical blues featuring Fame singing in the intimate setting of just guitar and bass.

The album opens with the classic Andy Fairweather-Low pop classic ''Wide-Eyed and Legless'', followed by a mix of popular standards and Fame originals. ''Skiiing Blues'' and the medley ''There's No More Blue Time / Breezin' All the Way'' are paricular highlights. On the popular standards front there's ''Cry Me a River'', ''My Foolish Heart'' and ''I Can't Get Started (With You)''. ''Blossom'' is for singer Blossom Dearie, who praised Fame in the 60's with her own composition, ''Sweet Georgie Fame''. All in all this is an album that qualifies the fact that Georgie Fame is the most original jazz voice this country has ever produced. Fifty-plus years in the business clearly hasn't diminished his voice or creativity!

Georgie Fame has recorded over 20 albums and 14 hit singles. He is equally at home in the company of jazz groups, big bands, orchestras, rock groups and his own band The Blue Flames, who were the opening act for the first Motown Review concert tour of the UK in the early 60's. He toured the UK and Europe with the Count Basie Orchestra and as a sideman recorded with Gene Vincent, Prince Buster, Muddy Waters, Eric Clapton, Joan Armatrading, Andy Fairweather-Low, Alan Price, Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings, and Van Morrison among many others.

Personnel: Georgie Fame (vocals), Primoz Grasis (guitar), Mario Mavrin (bass guitar)

Review

(4 stars) The two guitars provide an ideal setting for Fame to sing simply and gently, most memorably on such lovely ballads as Don't Blame Me and I Can't Get Started - both with rarely-sung verses - and a string of Fame's own compositions. -- Scotland on Sunday, (Alison Kerr), November 4, 2012

(4 stars) Six decades into his remarkably consistent career, Fame has made one of his best albums...it opens with a lovely version of Wide-Eyed and Legless. -- The Independent On Sunday, (Phil Johnson), December 9, 2012

Fame delivers a dozen perfect miniatures...I particularly like his song in tribute to the late Blossom Dearie, warm and heartfelt, but also witty and done with the lightest of touches. -- The Observer, (Dave Gelly), October 14, 2012

To hear Fame in an intimate trio setting of just guitar and bass is a real delight, not least because it allows you to completely focus in on his wonderfully rich vocal timbre. --Jazzwise, (Peter Quinn), December 2012 / January 2013

What - no Hammond organ? No drums or "singing horns"? No need to worry, Georgie's long-time pals from Zagreb make sure that the melodic and rhythmic background is as clear as springwater, but as full-bodied as a Californian Chablis at the same time. In your face, or rather in your front room - even when Primaz Grasic lets Mario Mavrin do a bass solo, or the former relies on Mario's six bottom end strings to let loose on his fine acoustic Yamaha guitars.
It's Georgie who actually benefits from this expertise. His voice always reigns centre stage here, story-telling and representing the third - or no, the first instrument in this remarkable trio. At almost 70, Fame's voice is still oozing all the warmth, dynamic power, tenderness, tonal range and humourous interludes of his younger years, while actually continuing to improve in terms of his very own, inexplicable richness in delivery and precision.
And the man clearly loves these songs and their tales, treating his pal Andy Fairweather Low's famous liquor lament (having played on the original AFL recording in 1975) to an attractive Bossa Nova arrangement, and re-visiting his hommage replying tribute to "Blossom" Dearie. There's his re-write of some lines in George Gershwin's 1930 standard "I Can't Get Started With You" in order to get rid of its Wall Street Crash connotations and to introduce some auto-biographical observations: "I toured with Basie's band for a while (as many remember, he did of course), and Tony Bennett sketched my profile - with Van The Man I spent halcyon days, from Bennie Golson I had high priase, yet you got me down-hearted, I can't get started with you." You should get started with LOST IN A LOVER`S DREAM now, because there is so much more, not least "Singing Horn" and the excellent title track finale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Supreme Fame 24 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is Georgie Fame at his very best. The voice is as strong and melodic as ever and the minimalist setting of the songs makes for great late night listening...or for any other time come to think of it. The standards are beautifully interpreted and Georgie's strengths as a songwriter are admirably demonstrated on this. For me this is right up there with Sound Venture.

Have been a fan since he started out and I must have nearly 30 of his LP's and CD's if not more always of a high quality and not too many rehashed oldies

5.0 out of 5 stars New from Georgie...a great new album 24 Nov 2012
By C. FULLER TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I have been a fan of Georgie Fame since the 1960s and have seen him live a number of times over the years. A new album from him is something special as are his tours and I note he is currently on a UK tour (November 2012).
This new album is interesting made up as it is of new material of his and songbook classics such as an all time favourite of mine "My Foolish Heart" (Victor Young and Ned Washington) plus a wonderful version of "Cry me a River" immediately followed by "I Can't get Started" that make the album a real hit with me. At around 70 Georgie Fame could be putting his feet up but I reckon there is still plenty more to come from this wild child of the 1960s. The small group settings put him front and centre but this is very much a team effort and the musicians backing him are excellent. This is an album you should own...

3.0 out of 5 stars Georgie Fame - Lost In A Lover's Dream 26 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Quite disappointed to be honest. All tracks are slow paced. Love the stuff GF does with Bill Wyman Rhythm Kings but this does hold up at all
