3.0 out of 5 stars SINGING?, May 30 2004
I bought all of Williams' books at once and, for some reason, started with THE SINGING. The first section impressed me but then the other 3 sections went f l a t. The second section looks like a bad attempt at using the ghazal as a (new) form. After that, with the exception, maybe, of "In The Forest", f l a t. I've gone back to NEW & SELECTED and it's better. But THE SINGING is not a must-have.

First off, I'd like to say I much prefer the Canadian cover to this second compilation of Elvis recordings. Secondly, though the first was great, this one gives us a little more variety and does a fantastic job of it too--congrats to Vic Anesini for correcting the sound on "I Want You, I Need You, I Love You" and to Peter Guralnick (?) for adding the periodic "1st to"s in bigger type! "Roustabout" and "Rubbernickin'" as well as the latter's remix are a great adddition. Now, when do we get "Three to get ready and go, go, go..."? Maybe a compilation of only remixes?
Songs I Love To Sing ~ Brook Benton

Brook Benton has a voice and when I saw this CD--a miniature version of a real LP--of him singing standards, I grabbed it. Such a "handsome" voice! Only one complaint: the recording is definitely BB's "SONGS" but Verve made a boo-boo and printed on the front of the CD "AFTER THE BALL" by Frank D'Rone, recording that is included in this limited edition series! Shame on Verve!
