"We kept hearing "As If I Didn't Know" on our local oldies station, but the title/artist were never announced. We finally figured we'd try Amazon.com by title to see if we could figure out who the artist was, and the only one who came up was ADAM WADE. We took a flyer and ordered it. We love it. We love him. Neither my mother, nor I, had ever heard any of his music nor had we ever heard of Adam Wade, so we have been very pleased w/the selection of songs. I had made the comparison of Adam sounding like a cross between Jerry Vale and Johnny Mathis.Adam rides in the car w/us and we play him nearly non-stop whenever/wherever we go. Anyone who likes 'Oldies But Goodies' will like Adam Wade--he's so listenable. My advice--TRY IT, YOU'LL LIKE IT!"
Clear, Crisp and Memorable

"Being from Adam Wade's hometown of Pittsburgh has perhaps slanted my appreciation for his vocal talent. I remember hearing him on the radio when I was a child. Now when I play his songs on my radio program everyweek,(some 40+ years later) I truly appreciate his talent.The recording is a superb example of a great voice singing memorable songs with terrific arrangements. I truly wish Adam was still singing in the Pittsburgh area. I only regret I've never seen him in a live show, but this recording is the next best thing. Well done Adam and thanks.

"Suave is the perfect word to describe Adam Wade's music.Gifted and blessed with a strong resemblance to Johnny Mathis' vocal styling, this singer sure can carry a tune in a rather effortless way. His version of the often-recorded `Take Good Care Of Her' is in my book the best that I've come across so far. His rendition of `I Can't Help It' is not really that exceptional but it's not scruffy either. The arrangement of `The Prisoner's Song' is rather odd and so foreign from what I expected, lacking the feeling and lamentation that the song ought to convey. But that should not distract from the overall brilliance of this recording.I haven't heard of Mr. Wade before this album but I took the chance anyway to invest on this CD. Needless to say that chance paid off."
