Great Album

"I first got the vinyl version in 1976 - one of the first jazz records I owned. I am happy to be able to buy it on CD. The combination of Cleo and her husband, John Dankworth (sp), is great."

"The album "Born on a Friday," by British songster Cleo Laine, (now Dame Cleo Laine) with her husband John Dankworth choosing, arranging, and conducting the music so as best to showcase her lovely wide-ranging voice, is one to keep. It gives her the room to show off not only that range; but her varied attacks: swinging on "Come Back to Me," "Birdsong," and "Any Place I Hang My Hat is Home." Bluesy on "Colours Ran," "I Think it's Gonna Rain Today," "Unlucky Woman," and "Streets of London." Soulful and sexy on "Let Me Be The One," and "Do You Really Want Him." Superb articulation; innate musicianship. I've been lucky enough to see her in person during her prime years, and what an experience it was. Only --tiny-- criticism-- sometimes you can have too much chocolate. And sometimes, the sound here is a bit much of a much, with every song arranged to give Laine maximum voltage.

But let's not be ungrateful for an album anyone would be lucky to find."
