CD Reviews

The hippest crooner in *my* book !
Eddie Landsberg | Tokyo, Japan | 12/04/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Aside from a few "Sinatra" emulators (like Harry Connick Jr.) - -are there any American "crooners" left on the planet...? and is that necessarily so bad...? Nothing is worse than the music of a second rate crooner... however, when it comes to a first rate crooner... no experience is greater... and PRYSOCK was for sure one of the greats if not the greatest...O.K. as for the CD... this is one of those compilations that has some tracks that are INCREDIBLE but a few that seem a bit out of place. For example, SHOW ME HOW TO MAMBO is a GREAT novelty track... but sticking it in between TAKE CARE and MORNING...??? And then there's a fantastic early Rock and Roll/screaming R & B type blues called WOKE UP THIS MORNING where he goes from that rich Prysock Baritone to a screaming James Brown type wail... crazy, but its wierd how its just thrown in there. - - nevertheless... I'm giving this CD 5 stars because even if the order of the tunes are a bit strange, there are plenty of tracks that warrent listening over and over again.. The opener TAKE CARE OF YOU in fact epitomizes Prysock Gold... as do tunes like MORNING NOON and NIGHT and YOU ARE TOO BEAUTIFUL... the soulful romantic sometimes bluesy crooner with that rich bassy vibrato voice. The Verve style string arrangements add a whole 'nother perspective... Other high points... flamboyant stereophonic string orchestrations of September in the Rain, Autumn in NY and In The Still of The Night.... space age string arrangements of JET (a wildly swinging bossa with just the right touch of flutes and Hammond - - definitely sounds like something Pizzicato 5 would sample), brassy (classic Basie) intro of the wickedly bluesy Gone Again - and Prysock's spoken part on Autumn leaves - - oh, and a bit of operatic acrobatics (that temporarily tweek the mics) on Take Care of Yourself.If you like this CD, check out Capital Record's ULTRA LOUNGE series ! There definitely is a deeper, bluesier and heavier side to Prysock than you hear on many cuts on this CD... but this CD still makes a great listening experience never-the-less..."

"This artist beyond a doubt has the smoothest voice that I've ever heard. He hasn't gotten enough recognition for his beautiful voice and I feel he should have been in the Top Ten and stayed there. This is good music."
I'm looking for the title of one of Mr Prysock song

"I feel Arthur was one of the greatest singer in his day. I'm now in the process of purchasing as many of his CD I can. I'm looking for one in particular (When Love is New) does anyone no the title of the CD this song is on? Thanks"
