It saddens me that some people completely missed the incredible uniqueness of this masterpiece. Her renditions are completely spot on. And although I'm a huge Sinatra fan (I have his complete catalogue) I find her versions even more heartfelt and beautiful than those by Ella Fitzgerald, Sinatra and their likes. Her singing is both fragile, intimate and at times even humorous. The blend of her unique phrasing and the lush arrangements by Phil Ramone is intriguing and thrilling - a feast for the ears. I find that this is her best vocal effort so far. On the strengh of this album alone she should be viewed as one of the very best female vocalists - if not the best - of the 20th century.

This is the CD of cover version of the music She was brought up listening to, that is, her Mums favourites. So its an unusual out-of-time collection.

I love it. But its unusual.

An album of covers. This music is of a high quality - it will last. It is a mellow album mind, so be warned.

If you like Sinead and Jazzy Blues, by this album. Very smooth and easy on the ears. Good for laid back times.

This is a truly stunning CD that I thoroughly enjoy every time I play it. Sinéad (and her band) put a lot into every one of these, very well known, songs but very clearly make these interpretations all her very own.
It should also be pointed out that in 1992 it seems they could make a very clean recording. This has a wide and deep stereo stage so you'll maybe want to turn the volume up a bit, grab a glass of wine (or something stronger) and plunk yourself down in the sweet-spot to enjoy the full effect.

It's much much better that you have control over the volume than to have it "too loud" on the CD as seems to be the want of a lot of the current sound engineers and this recording is more the better for it.

Enjoy . . .
