Format: Audio CD
This album is brimming with famous names singing songs you are probably at least vaguely aware of; you just didn't associate some of those singers with those sort of songs before. Chris DeBurgh's rendition of 'Do what you do' is one of the most romantic and sentimental tracks of the decade. The sheer power of Lisa Stansfield's 'They can't take that away from me' or Cher's 'It Aint Necessarily So' might even make you want to buy a better stereo, but the best is yet to come! Kate Bush singing 'The Man I love', Meatloaf singing 'Somebody Loves Me', and Courtney Pine singing 'Summertime'. On some of the tracks you instantly recognise the singer because of their distinctive voice e.g. Elvis Costello, but others are so far out of their usual context you will end up looking at the sleeve to see who it is. The quality of sound recording is absolutely tip-top as you would expect of 1994 professional studio recordings. It follows that combined with the extraordinary artistic talents involved (both singers and musicians), this may well be the ultimate Gershwin recording. I wasn't a Gershwin fan at all until I heard it. Someone nicked my first copy - so I'm ordering another one.

If you love Gershwin you'll love this. The most unexpected people singing some glorious songs, I love Meatloaf, but never thought I would hear my favourite singer singing my favourite composer. Sinead O'Connor, Elvis Costello the list goes on. The songs are classics & the singers do them justice. If you don't have any Gershwin CDs get this one.

This album is extremely enjoyable and contains some of the greatest music and best loved songs of the 20th Century. These are fine sensitive performances by well known artists. I can't add anything to the previous reviews except my endorsement - highly recommended, nuff said.

This is an interesting recording which was made to celebrate the 80th birthday of Larry Adler. It features many well-known contemporary artistes singing Gershwin classics - material which they would not normally be associated with. You will hear Elvis Costello, Kate Bush and Cher in a way you've never heard them before! And the disc is really nice to listen to. You'll be very pleasantly surprised!

Wonderful compilation of tracks to celebrate his 80th birthday by Larry
Adler and friends including Jon Bon Jovi, Cher, Elton John, Meat Loaf,
Courtney Pine, Sting and many more. Everyone wanted to be part of this
tribute; produced by the incomparable George Martin.
I had worn out my tape copy so was thrilled to receive the CD from
Amazon so promptly.

Had the CD once before but lost it when moving house, so very glad to have it again. Really enjoy all the songs and the artists performing them. Recommend it to anyone who enjoys good Gershwin music with a "twist".

An outstanding collaboration that brings Gershwin back to life, with some truly amazing harmonica playing; who needs an orchestra when you had Larry Adler.
