Songs that Lorrie learned from her father
Peter Durward Harris | Leicester England | 08/06/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Lorrie's father, country singer George Morgan, had musical tastes far beyond country music and he was clearly a strong influence when it came to musical taste. This album shows that Lorrie is well capable of singing songs from her father's era. Of course, the idea of a country singer recording songs from the Great American Songbook is nothing new - Willie Nelson has recorded several albums of such songs, while Crystal Gayle has recorded a tribute album to Hoagy Carmichael.On this album, Lorrie has chosen to cover two very famous songs, Secret love and Fly me to the moon, together with other classics of the era including My foolish heart, They can't take that away from me and many other wonderful songs that are less well known these days than they once were but still deserve to be heard.I became a huge fan of Lorrie Morgan following the release of her first RCA album. She has never quite achieved the level of success expected of her, partly because of her eclectic musical tastes. Commercially, this album may have damaged her career because it alienated some fans who only wanted her to sing the pop-country music they expected from her. Artistically, I think it is a masterpiece - one of her best albums - but you must make up your own mind."
Vocal talent that withstands the norm!

"I've been a fan of lorrie's since i heard the song "something in red"! I know now as i knew then that this lady has a tremendous, touching voice! Being an african american male i confess to knowing very little about country music; but ms. morgan has the type of voice that would do any type of song justice! Hearing her haunting duet with frank sinatra i knew that i was right on the money! If you are a fan of old standards this is one for the shelf! I long for the day when people realize that singing is an art; and to me what makes "a singer" an "artist" is when the singer takes the risks to step out of the norm and try something new and different; as lorrie did with this effort. That alone speaks volumes!"
