If you think that you like this CD, I suspect that you are not really familiar with the material. It isn't Rod Stewart that you like. It is the great American songbook. If you love the material, then you need to hear it performed by the likes of Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Joe Williams. Stewart is not even close. I dare anyone to compare Stewart's version of "The Way You Look Tonight" to Sinatra's. I dare anyone to compare Stewart's version of "That's All" (an absolute, unmitigated disaster) to Mel Torme's.
Don't like the "old guys"? Compare Stewart's version of "The Very Thought of You" to Steve Tyrell's interpretation on his CD, "A New Standard."
I could go on and on and on, comparing Stewart to Tony Bennett, Michael Buble, Harry Connick, Jr., etc., etc. Even Al Martino does a better job with this material than Rod Stewart.
Shop around. If you like the songs, virtually any other recording of this material is bound to be better.
I tried to give this CD a "zero" rating, but they wouldn't let me.
