Beautiful Album!
12/09/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a classic album by Cleo Laine and John Williams recorded in 1976. All the carefully chosen tracks are expertly sung and played. You will find a more gentle but still passionate Cleo on this cd. A great late night album, totally different to her jazz recordings. Worth the price alone for "He Was Beautiful". Other stand out tracks include "Eleanor Rigby","Wave" and "Killing Me Softly."

"I was very curious to hear what is the commercial peak of Dame Cleo's carerer and (as usual) found out that majority of album-buyers prefered something mellow and not so-intrusive.Her collaboration with famous classical guitar player John Williams (not the film music composer, for those who are obviously not educated enough) was hugely succesful and resulted in two albums together.This is the first one, very acoustic and mellow but somehow the overal atmosphere is little bit too dreamy for my taste, I like Dame Cleo because she is so passionate, and since nature of this songs are soft and easy-listening, somehow I don't think they really represents her fierce spirit and enourmous talent.There is no doubt that for some people this is favourite Cleo Laine album, but I prefer her jazzy settings, and above all masterpiece "Shakespeare and all that jazz" where she was simply incredibly good, real jazz giantess!Here is merely a nice whisper for afternoon nap.But I love her, of couse:)))"
Essential

"This is the essential album to have in your collection. Anyone who has ever loved, lost, dreamed and experienced the emotional realms of living - then this album will fill in all the gaps of feelings and emotions that cannot be put into words.
Whether or not you are a Cleo Laine fan, this album is a must have. If you are not touched by Cleo's rendition of any or all of the songs, then you have no heart and must surely be dead.
