'ANOTHER COLLECTION FULL OF GREAT ''SOUNDS''
on 30 October 2013
Fairly Recently 'Sony' released the 'American Heartland' 3-CD compilation which was,
like this, thoroughly enjoyable......this another release in the 'American' theme
The compilation gives us many great sounds plucked from the last four decades or so,
giving almost everyone songs that are remembered for whatever reason of course.
Truly There are so many great numbers on this 3-CD compilation, far too many too
mention, however i'd like to pick out one or two from each disc that influenced my
decision to buy.
On disc one...'Pink feat Nate Ruess' --'Give me a Reason'...'Kelly Clarkson' --'Because
of You'...'Alicia Keys' --'Fallin''...'Sarah McLachlan's' --'Angels'...'The Calling'
--'Wherever you will Go'...'Eva Cassidy's' version of 'Fields of Gold'...and 'Celine
Dion's' --'Because you Loved Me' ('Celine' sang this one in a show of hers I was fortunate
to have seen recently -'Great Stuff')
Just a few of the great sounds from the first of the three discs.....on disc two......
'Justin Timberlake' -'Cry me a River'...'Christine Agulera' --'Beautiful'...
'Nsync's --'Gone'...'Gloria Estefan' --'Can't stay away from You'...'The Jacksons' --
'Find me a Girl'...and 'Earth,Wind and Fire' --'After Love has Gone'
Again just to highlight one or two of the terrific numbers on the second of three discs.
On the third disc...'Bangles' --'Eternal Flame'...'Foreigner's' --'I Want to Know what
Love is' (Certainly among my all time favourites)...'Chicago' --'Had to Say I'm Sorry'
...'Simon and Garfunkel's' --'Silence is Golden'...'Elvis's' --'I Can't Help Falling in
Love'...'Journey' --'Open Arms'...'Lissie.s' --'Go your Own Way' along with 'Sheryl
Crow's' version of 'The First Cut is the Deepest' ...and 'Bob Dylan' --'Make you feel
Again far too many great songs on disc three to mention, I hope overall the songs that
I have pointed out give an indication of just how good this compilation really is.
If I had to make a criticism it would be, as on many compilations of this type they
repeatedly cut great numbers like 'Meatloaf's' Rock/ballads, on this it's the classic
track 'I'd do Anything For Love' .....maybe it's just me, but, it's a great number
and should be presented in it's full/uncut version even if means maybe dropping a
track from the disc, am I nit-picking ? (would just prefer to listen to the complete
Overall, that aside this is a great collections of great sounds that would 'grace'
anyone's collection.....check it out.
(another great series of music in the making I suspect, looking forward to the next one)
