There's a feeling you get when you put on an Anne Murray record, and--apologies in advance to all you anti-sentimentalists--it's best summarized by the vocal legend herself in the classic tune "I Just Fall in Love Again." You can't help yourself; you fall in love. Those who've been listening along swollen-heartedly since the 1970s know the feeling well, and those who are about to discover Murray via this duets album and its handful of younger-skewing songs--the Nelly Furtado team-up on "Daydream Believer" especially--are going to have a hard time not submitting. It's the tenderness that hooks you: Murray's deep, confident voice manages to be maternal without being claustrophobic, an effect magnified here by expert vocal partners like Carole King, Emmylou Harris, and Olivia Newton John. The few left-field choices--Indigo Girls, k.d. lang, a ghostly appearance by Dusty Springfield--aren't hard-left enough to muck up the mood. And the song selection doesn't strike a false note either: "Cotton Jenny" sounds as right on an Anne Murray CD as "You Needed Me." Which means that if you have a soft spot for Murray at all, even one that's not quite as cushy as it used to be, you should prepare to be sucked in. It happens every time, as the song goes. --Tammy La Gorce

Anne Murray has re-recorded her best-known songs as duets with an all-female group of collaborators including Canadians Shania Twain, Nelly Furtado, k.d. Lang, Jann Arden, Isabelle Boulay, her own daughter Dawn Langstroth and the ubiquitous Selline Dion.
The roster of guests is really impressive and includes also Emmylou Harris, Carole King, Martina McBride, Shelby Lynne, Amy Grant, Celtic Woman, Indigo Girls and the late Dusty Springfirld.
It was Anne who suggested the all-female idea to help whittle down the artists involved.
She was particularly thrilled that her daughter and son Will also sang background vocals with her on "You Won't See Me", a duet with Shelby Lynne, marking the first time all three family members have been in the studio together.
"I Just Fall in Love Again" with the late Dusty Springfield is a real historical curiosity, in addition to being a lovely song.
Dusty cut it on her 1979 album Living Without Your Love, on which she seemed to have been abandoned by her record label.
Anne cut the song on her album "New Kind of Feeling" and it made the top of the country chart in 1979.
For this current production, she duets with Springfield's original vocal, and the result is good.
While Anne's voice may not have the power and range of her prime it is still an excellent instrument and a joy to listen to.
It's an all-girl sleepover produced by music guru Phil Ramone (Johnny Cash, The Beastie Boys, Neil Diamond).
All of Murray's hits (including "Snowbird," "You Needed Me" and "Danny's Song") are here, newly recorded with a support group of her friends.
I cannot claim to have been familiar with all the songs and the artists who appear on this album but having heard their performances I will be trying out some of their other work.

In revisiting her hits, Anne has made no attempt to recreate the original recordings. Nor has she attempted to do tricks. She simply sings the songs as she sees them today, which is not always how she saw them yesterday.
The duets are for the most part true duets, with the two singers in the studio together, and artistically that makes such a difference. Everything here is fascinating. I particularly love "Cotton Jenny," with Anne doing the song as written and Olivia Newton-John noodling in and out of the melody. Anne and k.d. lang, Anne and Jann Arden and Anne and Dawn--well those voices just blend sumptuously. Think what Anne and Karen Carpenter would have sounded like together. "Another Pot O' Tea" provides a highlight but, listen, EVERYTHING on the album is a highlight! Beautifully arranged, beautifully recorded. It will be a big, big seller.

Wow! What a surprise that Anne decided to do another album after toying with the idea that "I'll be seeing you" would be her last. At 62, and after 40 years in the biz, Anne's voice still shines. Highlites are " You Needed Me" with Shania Twain. Their voices blend surprisingly well together and both give a stellar performance. "Another Pot O' tea" with Emmylou Harris is a dreamy, touching tribute to an Irish grandmother, and their voices are just heavenly together. Nelly Furtado rings in a strong performance on "Daydream Believer" which has a fun, uptempo beat. "You won't See Me" with Shelby Lynn is a must-what a catchy beat and strong vocal from both. Jann Arden is always excellent, and their take on "Somebody's always Sayin' goodbye" is also a standout. Céline & Anne belt it out live on "When I fall in Love" and Amy Grant has a cute take on "Could I have this Dance", with beautiful vocals. The two real showstoppers though are "A Little Good News" with updated lyrics (replacing "Bryant Gumble" with "Dianne Sawyer" and Ireland with Gaza) where Indigo girls and Anne do justice to Anne's original with a twist. The last number is quite possibly the best. "Si jamais je te revois" with Québécoise diva Isabelle Boulay builds up until a choir joins in at the end. That song packs a powerful punch. Anne we love you-please don't ever retire! PS-I almost forgot, her posthumous duet with her late friend Dusty Springfield is simply haunting...

Some of the best Anne Murray songs re-recorded with the help of well known female artists. The entire album can be listened to on Anne's website, from start to end, and I must say, this album is a must. No bad remakes or different takes on her songs. The musical instruments and arrangements are just like the original songs she recorded all those years ago. She stays true to her formula that made her a success. Songs like Nobody Love me Like You do, sung with Anne's daughter are great. She sounds just like her mom in the early days. Other highlights on this album are the songs in which Martina McBride, Sarah Brigthman, Amy Grant & Celine Dion take part. The true gem of this album though, is the duet with Shania Twain, for the song You Needed Me. These 2 ladies are the true Canadian songbirds, and they're organic voices were made for this song. This alone is worth buying the album. This is definitely a nice visit back to old classics with more modern sounding quality & sound. A must have!

To my heart and mind, there are two singers who represent Canada - Gordon Lightfoot and Anne Murray. While Lightfoot has written and performed songs that capture the Canadian personality, Anne has presented herself on the world stage as a proud Canadian and built a significant career her way, which included remaining in Canada.

There are songs so tied to Anne's voice that I was wondering how a duet format could ever enhance. Takes a lot of courage to reinterpret songs like "You Needed Me", "Danny's Song" and "A Love Song" but Anne bravely steps into her proven territory and shares the spotlight with today's top female vocalists.

The most successful pairings, in my opinion? k.d. lang on "A Love Song" is worthy of serious radio time. This song is now a classic reborn. Shania Twain's contribution on "You Needed Me" lends a heart-breaking tone to this beautiful song. Olivia Newton-John on "Cotton Jenny" allows the twangy, country feel of the song to show its face. Anne's daughter Dawn offers the most gentle vocals of all on "Nobody Loves Me Like You Do".

Some of the other pairings are curiousities. Carole King's vocals on the song she wrote "Time Don't Run Out on Me" really do not help the song regain any relevance. Nelly Furtado on "Daydream Believer" sounds as if she's wondering how she ended up in this situaton.

But we can't ignore the fact that these guest vocalists assembled to record with a singer they admire, and a career they respect. And for this reason, Anne has done us proud, very proud.
