This 15 track CD has one unusual feature - none of the songs are written by Charlie! Nevertheless his interpretations of `standards` like "What`ll I Do", "Bewitched", "Once In A While" (2 versions), "Just One More Chance" and "Every Time We Say Goodbye" are as good as any I have heard.
Then we have the `pop` ballads, "I Don`t Know Why I Love You, But I Do", "Me And The Elephant", "Imagine", "Love Me", "Gasoline Alley", "Fields Of Gold" and "If You Could Read My Mind". The collection is completed with versions of "Always On My Mind" and "I`ll Take You Home Again, Kathleen".
No country music in sight, just simple arrangements and accompaniments allowing the full sensitivity of his voice to come through. Well worth the cost.
