Only just bought this cd and it is 2002. The revival of big band music made me take a second look at this cd. George has made me proud again! As a devoted fan I am astounded by his version of 'the first time ever I saw your face'- all I can say is 'wow'. If you looked at this cd when it was first released and it did not appeal to you, please give it a second chance. It is up there with the Ladies & Gentlemen cd. Please George more like this!!!!

This new CD is really different from other George albums. The entire CD is cover songs and it really showcases George's voice as he takes you into a jazzy and smooth ride of soft tunes. First off we have "Brother Can You Spare A Dime" in which he sang this live for the NetAid concert and this brilliant cover shows real pure emotion and passion. "Roxanne" a Police cover is really great as he goes JAZZY on us with this track and really giving his all on this one. He takes Roxanne to a place the original never went to which is real passion and meaning behind the words you really feel every note and lyric. "You've Changed" - is a song that makes you want to take a hot bath and just relax to the smooth melodies. "My Baby Just Cares For Me" 1:43 - Nice upbeat song this time with changed lyrics and the bit about Ricky Martin is a nice added touch. Finally another standout track is "Secret Love" 2:39 - BEST SONG ON THE CD! Cant stop listening to it!! Seems this song was made just for George to sing. Really a classic! Pick up a copy or two really a nice way to start off the holidays with this smooth CD. If you want to relax this is the CD for you! Brent Pearson USA

Not really liking G.M. or his music, way too popie for me,I was very pleasantly surprised by this album.Some classic songs done in such a relaxing way.I have to give Mr Michaels credit where credit is due. Even when my friends visit and i say 'listen to this, its by G.M.' the reaction is one of shock and 'no thats not really him'., just before they rush out and buy it!

George Michael cordon bleu penchant for music takes a turn in these renditions of old classics laced with classy eloquence. G.M bestows his stylistic charms into tunes that are as deeply arousing as his own exquisite personification. 'Brother Can You Spare A Dime ' in its own lush interpretation, exudes the kind of subtle star quality akin with old 60's songs. 'My Baby Just Cares For Me' and 'Secret Love' is so gorgeously gowned in some strapless sensation that it makes you want to get down and savour its sweet melody. And look out for 'Where Or When' - a true minimalist masterpiece that leaves you nothing less that exasperated. These are tunes sprinkled into the timeless hours of classics and elegance carried by an equally classy guy. It tempts you to close your eyes; reminiscence with the past, leaving you swaying in an indelible impression of pleasance and radiance. It is simply M-U-S-T for anyone interested in a smashing good rendition of smooth jazzy tunes.

I have always loved George's music and was at first a little unsure about this new venture.But as a loyal fan , I bought the album .... and fell in love with it. George's voice lends so well to all of these classics. "Brother , can you spare a dime" is extremely powerful and is my favourite on the album with "You've changed " coming a close second. I recommend this highly.

A mature album from George Michael, nicely laid back and sung well. Normally a song is written for a particular person, which is made to suit their voice. When somebody else takes on that song sometimes it can go wrong. George Michael nailed this one all the tracks well executed with great songs such as 'Wild is the Wind', 'First Time Ever I Saw Your Face' and 'Brother Can You Spare A Dime'. One song I did not like originally 'I Remember You' (an old Frank Ifield song) I did not like it first time around but again a very good version on this album. Bought this second hand for pennies and an absolute bargain!

Great songs of the 20th Century, new renditions and treatments, difficult to choose a favourite more like match a song to a mood.Mellow, red wine and fireside music, but thats the best time to listen ! George proves what a truly great singer he his, some of the choices are brave (Miss Sarajevo!)but to his credit , he pulls it off.

This is a fabulous CD of covers. I see some of the songs on it will be on his new album, no idea why he hasnt covered other songs on that.

Killing Me Softly and Roxanne are brilliant versions in my view. A resounding 10 out of 10 from me.

This is such a great way to listen and relax to the mellow tones of George Michael. I went to see him in concert, and it was all of these songs, with a few more upbeat. It was a beautiful experience, and I will see him sitting on stage everytime I listen. A must for every George fan.
