CD Reviews

The easy and effortless style of Al Hibbler
william j johnson | Waveland, MS United States | 07/29/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I like this cd because Al Hibbler phrasing of the lyrics makees his songs easy to listen to, similar to Frank Sinatra. You You get the feeling that you there in person listening to him sing."
Blind, bitter, black and blacklisted
William Russo | Centerville -Cape Cod) | 04/12/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Blind from birth, bitter about racial problems, and in possession of a voice on a par with Billy Eckstine and Arthur Prysock-nobody wanted to record Al Hibbler despite early chart success with "Unchained Melody", "He", and "After the Lights Go Down Low". Following his civil rights arrests in the 1950's and 60's there were few gigs, no airplay and no contracts. Only one man would step up to record Al Hibbler. That individual was Frank Sinatra and his Reprise Records.
Hibbler's great delivery ranks him with the "big" singers of any generation. Even his fake British accent (on "After the Lights" & other songs) can't detract from the smooth and powerful vocals delivered by a man who should have been a "giant" in the music business. Hey, why not make a movie about Al Hibbler's life?"
