5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Daniel P. Hudelson on Dec 24 1999
Format: Audio CD
DREAM OF A CHILD sold more units in Canada than anything else, including all those smash Guess Who & BTO releases, to that point in time. "Break It To Them Gently," the song which opens the CD has received more Canadian airplay than any other GW or Burton Cummings single. Yet stateside, few of us are aware of any of that. I prefer the preceeding the CD, MY OWN WAY TO ROCK, and the subsequent WOMAN LOVE, due largely to my personal preference to the more rocking side of Burton, but DREAM certainly contains some quality Cummings. My favorite cut, "Shiny Stockings" is the ultimate snazzy-styled vocals as only BC can deliver over a simple trio arrangement which includes very nimble, tastful fills by this, the Real Piano Man. "I Will Play a Rhapsody", opens sounding rather Gary Wright, but is another unique and elegant gem where our favorite smoothie harmonizes with himself with perfect precision on both vocals and keyboards. "Guns, Guns, Guns", redone from the GW's ROCKIN' LP doesn't have the same passion or spontaneous feel of the original, but is cleaner, with a tighter rhythm section with the unique guitar stylings of Skunk Baxter (he's all over the early Steely Dan tunes). The title cut is the best cover, an ideal marriage between lyical content (looking back), musical composition & arrangement (very dreamy), and vocal delivery (he sang it with such feeling, people have mistaken this to be a Cummings original). The bonus tracks are among the best of the reissues, songs which are plenty good to belong on any album. The 2nd bonus cut, "Wild Child" (not to be confused w/ the Doors' song of the same name) with a little enhancement could have been a very good single.

The Best Voice in Rock April 20 2000
By Kirk Pasich - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Dream of a Child" stands tall among long-overdue CD releases. This disc reflects the depth and variety of a gifted songwriting talent with a gifted voice. And the extra tracks are not fodder. Cummings' vocal range and dexterity always have been truly impressive, and on this album they have a chance to shine. From the story in "Break It to Them Gently" to the true country sound of "Takes a Fool to Love a Fool" to the pop rock of "Meanin' So Much" to the romantic ballad "I Will Play a Rhapsody," Cummings' full range is explored. The remakes, particularly "When a Man Loves a Woman," are truly enjoyable. And, for pure vocal "wow", "Shiny Stockings" shows just how stellar Cummings' vocal gymnastics can be. This album was an overlooked pop gem--at least in the U.S.--on its relase. Its first release on CD in the U.S. ought not be overlooked The inclusion of the bonus tracks (particularly "Wild Child")and the excellent liner notes make this a truly worthwhile purchase. Perhaps the CD release his first four albums will prompt the long overdue release of "Sweet Sweet" and "Heart," two albums not available on CD even in Canada. Meanwhile, this disc will remind listeners of what a true talent Cummings is--and hopefully spark anticipation for the Guess Who reunion tour.

You either love it or April 23 2013

hate it. Burton got a little more mellow on this album than he was with The Guess W/ho. For those that don't know, that was not a question, that was the name of the group he was with (also see Bachman Turner Overdrive - although he wasn't with them).

This is not a bad CD and many of the songs still sound pretty good in 2013. So give it a try - and then play a Guess Who CD after listening to this. Then slip in a BTO CD.
