Product Description

Craig David's first album with his new label, Universal, is a collection of Motown covers and songs with Motown samples, and is David's first album in three years. The Southampton-born singer covers Stevie Wonder, Otis Redding and Marvin Gaye amongst others, and gives these classic songs a modern twist. Signed, Sealed, Delivered includes the single "One More Lie (Standing In The Shadows)", an original song that samples the Four Tops' hit "Standing In The Shadows Of Love" in its chorus.

I realise that the concept of this CD may not be to everyone taste, but I write this as someone who enjoys 'respectful reprises' of classic, timeless songs. On hearing him perform live on Weekend Wogan (07-Mar-10), I immediately checked out this CD. Releasing a Motown album seems to be an almost-inevitability amongst many singers (Rod Stewart, Boyz II Men, etc) so there needs to be something different to set it aside from the others.

First and foremost, this is an excellent compliation of songs in their own right; Marvin Gaye, Temptations, Al Green... any Motown afficiandos know these songs in a heartbeat. Craig David manages to make these songs feel modern again - especially 'For Once In My Life' and 'Papa Was a Rolling Stone', which have been brought up to date with some interesting keyboard and percussion additions, without ruining the original. For me, they put the 'bop' back in! Two definite highlights are 'One More Lie (Standing in the Shaddows)' and 'All Alone Tonight (Stop Look Listen)', which are the only two new tracks (though both contain the bracketed title sample, to excellent effect). 'One More Lie' is my favourite track, and reminds us who Craig David really is. There is *almost* a pinch of disco in some of the tracks, which still works despite this sounding like a clash. However, few CDs are without their weakness, and in this case it's '(Sittin' on) The Dock of the Bay', which has lost the toes-dipped-in-water feel of Readings original. Plus, it isn't even a Motown song, so what its even doing on this CD is a mystery. Hey-ho *shrugs*.

Craig David's smooth vocals suit these songs perfectly, and respectfully complement the originals. They are different enough from the original to be fresh, but not so much as to loose their original appeal.

Craig David said he thought Motown was a 'genre' not a label. I guess no one has record collections anymore so how should they know otherwise. Anyway, this album is ok. It's not terrible. I wouldn't bash Craig David because he became a bit unfashionable.

However, 'if I'm being honest with you' (copyright Simon Cowell) this is a fairly uninspiring set of covers. If Craig David was on American Idol (I know he's British, but that's ok, let's imagine he's changed nationalities (I don't mind)) then he would be quite a good act. I could imagine his cover versions being applauded by Randy Jackson, who would say 'that's great, dog' and Simon would tell him he sang well, but needed to work on his dancing and performance. Craig might even win and if he did this would be the kind of post-American Idol CD he would bring out. A bit of Stevie, a bit of Al, smooth, soft, pleasant(ish), unthreatening, the kind of thing you'd put on during a nice meal for two, if neither of you were very bothered about music, but wanted to pretend you were into soul, or didn't want to hear each other talk too much. Craig said this album 'stemmed from Michael Jackson dying.' Fair enough. My own reaction was to give Off The Wall a spin.

Of the tracks, Mercy Mercy Me lacks any understanding of the emotion of the Marvin Gaye version, the Stevie Wonder title track is harmless and the Al Green is ok for round 3 of American Idol. If Paula Abdul hadn't been fired, she'd be up on her feet clapping and swaying out of rhythm and probably wondering how to get Craig's number. Give her a call Craig! Maybe your next release could be an album of duets!

I think Craig David is a great UK asset and we are all too quick to critise our home grown talent. I think this album is great - he has a great voice and these are without doubt, great songs. Yes they've been done a lot but I think he does manage to bring something fresh to the table.

Exactly what it says. I loved it. Going to see Craig on Tuesday 21 May so hoping he does a few of these. Great songs sung by a great singer.

This is an excellent collection of well known soul songs given Craig's treatment and it really works. Excellent from beginning to end.
