5.0 out of 5 stars BUBLE'S INSPIRATIONS ENSURES GREAT LISTENING!, 18 Mar 2014
This review is from: Inspirations: Borrowed By Bublé (Audio CD)
Here’s a great idea! Take a popular contemporary crooner who has recorded a few oldies and then dig back into the past and locate recordings by the singers who originally featured them. Michael Buble has particularly leaned on Sinatra, Dean Martin and Nat King Cole for inspiration so naturally they are amongst the vocal choices who range from way back in the Thirties through to the Sixties, so finding Ruth Etting, Ozzie Nelson, Hoagy Carmichael and Vaughn Monroe plus Ray Noble and his Orchestra amongst them helps make this a double-disc forty-track treat. Less familiar names include Angelo Ferdinand and his Orchestra (ALL I DO IS DREAM OF YOU), Little Willie John (FEVER), Little Willie Littlefield (KANSAS CITY) and The Top Notes (TWIST & SHOUT) with their iconic songs enjoying a formidable reputation nowadays but making me wish their inclusion and general diversity of this release had been accompanied by the dates these songs and their singers were originally recorded. Without exhaustive research there’s no way to know if these singers were the first to record the songs but just listening is a joy if one allows for variations in sound quality and occasional signs of wear and tear due to the age of the material.

Even though I have my doubts this collection will appeal to Buble’s younger fans, I’m sure his older followers will enjoy this enjoyable delve into these historical recordings which has sufficient appeal for them to rush out and buy this highly recommended release.
