CD Reviews

It feels like you are seeing him live!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As good as Kenny Rankin is in a studio, he is better live. This CD captures the essence of him live.He goes from guitar to piano effortlessly, he is skilled on both instruments. His taste, be it in his own writing, or the songs he covers, is exquisite. And this CD captures the between-songs stories that are an integral part of his act.A special bonus: The song "Hodong inside Myself" is from his lost CD of the same name (where can it be found?) and contains an essential Rankin lyric.Kenny, your fans need more!"
Greatest Live CD Ever!

"I have prided myself over the years as being a connoisseur of a wide variety of musical styles. Albums and cassettes aside I have a collection of well over 600 cds. This is the only one that I have ever bought a second copy so I would have another one available if anything ever happened to the original. I bought it months ago and still listen to it almost daily. Kenny accompanies himself on guitar, piano, and sings a capella. It is just him and the music. It doesn't get any better than this. I grew up with The Beatles and they covered Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Carl Perkins, and others so well that their versions became the standards. I never in my life imagined myself saying this, but Kenny's covers of I've Just See a Face and Blackbird on this CD may be better than the originals. That's heavy stuff!"
Kenny Rankin at His Best--Live
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first heard Kenny Rankin perform in the early 1970's as the opening act for George Carlin in Passic, New Jersey. I came to love his crooning ability and have always wondered why he never reached the full pinnacle of stardom that his talent deserves.But fortunately for me I was exposed to him early in his career and saw him perform live at The Bottom Line in New York City many times. This album captures the versatility and clarity of Mr. Rankin's vocal ability perfectly.If you are a true fan of Kenny Rankin you probably already own this recording. If you are not familar with Mr. Rankin's music, I urge you to add "The Bottom Line Encore" to your collection. I have given this CD to several of my friends who I knew loved music but never heard of Kenny Rankin. Each person expressed amazement of the quality of Kenny Rankin's voice and how much they enjoyed listening to this beautiful performance.The more you listen to this CD the better Mr. Rankin sounds."
