Biography

“Rarely has a singer had as full and unique a talent as Rod Stewart – a writer who offered profound lyricism and fabulous self-deprecating humor, teller of tall tales and honest heart breaker, he had an unmatched eye for the tiny details around which lives turn, shatter, and reform -- and a voice to make those details indelible.

Product Description

On the heels of the Grammy nomination for Rod Stewart’s Fly Me To The Moon… The Great American Songbook, Volume V, for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album, Rod Stewart releases The Best of… The Great American Songbook.
The Best of… The Great American Songbook presents the highlights from five albums, recorded across eight years, which have become nothing less than a musical and cultural phenomenon. In addition, this new songbook collection features one, newly recorded, never before released track "You’ll Never Know", produced by one of Rod’s longtime collaborators Richard Perry, along with brand new mixes of "Someone To Watch Over Me" and "Bye Bye Blackbird". Long celebrated for his expressive and distinctive vocal, Rod Stewart is widely regarded as having one of the most interpretive voices in music. The Best of… The Great American Songbook celebrates the unprecedented success of the five volume series.
Rod infuses his incomparable vocal style into iconic standards written by Rodgers and Hart, George and Ira Gershwin, and many other great composers and lyricists, including "The Way You Look Tonight", "They Can’t Take That Away From Me", "What A Wonderful World" featuring Stevie Wonder, and many, many more.

I bought this CD because my sister had it and we enjoyed singing along to the wonderful songs as we journeyed in her car from London to Somerset. I also bought a copy for a very dear friend who has had a stroke and now can't speak much - but she can sing! This was perfect for her as she remembers these classic numbers and their words. Altogether a very successful buy - would recommend to anyone who enjoys the old classics and also is wonderful to dance to. Thank you Rod!

The Best of The Great American Songbook by Rod Stewart. For me this says it all. It is easy listening for any occasion. The CD arrived very quick, in good order, well packed. I would recommend this CD. The only down side, I am driving everyone crazy as I play it over and over again.

I like very very very... much this singer, and I collection his albums. Even if in this CD there are many songs that were in the previous American Songbooks, there are also new ones, and the price is really low, so if you like Rod just buy this CD :)))

I wanted to buy this having seen him perform some of the classic songs on television. I decided to buy 'The Best of' as there are quite a few cd's in this set. I thoroughly recommend this as a taster...good easy listening classics.
