Simply Beautiful!

"I've been a fan of Anne Murray since high school,and at 44 I'm even more so!This CD is the essence that is Ms.Murray! She puts her soul into these already classic and lovely songs.The inside cover has a list of the songs and the artists who previously recorded them,which were an inspiration to Ms.Murray.Dare I say it? She out does most,if not all of the "original" artists;at the very least,she honors them highly with her renditions!And these were some heavy weights;Patti Page,Peggy Lee,Perry Como,Rosemary Clooney,Eddy Arnold,Doris Day!I love the old standards in this recording;(especially "Secret Love","When I Fall In Love",and"You Belong To Me") I love even more hearing them sung in Ms.Murray's beautiful,one of a kind alto!My copy is probably going to wear out soon,as I play it constantly,getting lost in it!:)I've heard most of these songs through out my life,although I'm too young to remember when most of them were original hits, so bless Ms. Murray for recording them!"
A stellar collection of great standards.

"It is always rewarding when a vocalist with great chops and unerring taste pays homage to her musical roots. Anne Murray has done so with her CD "Croonin'". This album is chock full of wonderful music and memorable performances. Q"Cape Cod", "Secret Love", "Hey There", and "Make Love To Me" are highlights in this stellar collection of great standards. Anne co-produced this album with Tommy West, co-producer of her current cd, "What A Wonderful World". Together they have produced a lush, contemporary sounding record that pays tribute to the great crooners of the 50's. How refreshing it is to hear an obviously gifted vocalist at the top of her game, who doesn't feel the need to indulge in overwrought vocal pyrotechnics when performing, an annoying trait that far too many contemporary vocalists succumb to. When you listen to the reverential treatment that Anne gives these songs, you understand why she has remained so popular for over 30 years. You understand why she has won countless Grammys and Junos. And finally, you understand what musical excellence truly is. Treat yourself to one of Anne Murray's greatest recordings."
She's great and hey she's Canadian.

"I have many many albums by Anne Murray but my favourite is still this 'Croonin' album. She covers tunes by Patti Page, Rosemary Clooney to name just a few. Not overdone or fancy, just plain good singing. And guess what? You can actually hear every word she sings unlike a lot of other singers."
