Rare Georgie Fame recording with Annie Ross and Hoagy
stephen sasser | Portland, Oregon | 01/14/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm biased. I'm a big Georgie Fame fan and have always loved the music of Hoagy Carmichael. I understand that Hoagy's contribution here is the last recording that he ever made. He is in good form. There is even a verbal track where he interjects some creative ideas to the producers.Annie Ross contributes sweet harmony and a needed female perspective to some of Hoagy's romantic lyrics. But Georgie is the driving force, both with his vocals and his pulsating Hammond B-3."
Musical Brilliance At The Highest Level. Absolute Killer.

"Words cannot describe the true brilliance and impact that this man's music has had on the industry. All that I want to add is, just grab this one quick. Do yourself a favor, this is a killer."
Hoagy's greatest tribute ever
Ulrich Twelker | GŁtersloh | 11/06/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The timeless charms of Hoagy Carmichael, writer of "Georgia On My Mind" and "Stardust", star of "To Have Or Have Not", have never been captured quite as stunningly as on this collaboration of Georgie Fame, (called the Godfather of British R&B by London graffiti in 1981), Annie "Short Cuts" Ross of Lambert, Hendricks & Ross fame - and "The Old Music Master" Hoagy himself: The 80 years old Hoagland Carmichael can be heard here giving advice on arrangements by Georgie and the late Harry South, which are then beautifully performed by the Famous Flamingo Orchestra, featuring British jazz sax greats like Peter King and Dick Morrissey, or Elton John's regular studio drummer Barry Morgan. The way Georgie and Annie take turns or sing tunes together in their inimitable styles, phrasing nonchalantly, it all swings and oozes ease and humour from start to finish: I love the exotic tale "Hong King Blues", the witty "Drip Drop" or the moving "Two Sleepy People" - hey, and show me better versions of "Georgia" and "Stardust" than those presented here. Fame, Ross & Carmichael had a theatre revue of this all lined up, but then Hoagy passed away only days before schedule. But this album was in the can - for me the best Georgie ever made, and that's saying something with regard to other classics like the brandnew "Poet In New York". A must."
