CD Reviews

Invitation is worth the price of the CD
Reginald Tyler | Springfield Gardens, NY United States | 10/14/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I heard "Invitation" on the radio one night a few months ago and I was immediately reminded of the richness and range of Adaritha's voice. This song was worth the price of the CD. You really can't miss with You Are My Starship(a classic), Valentine Love and a host of other compositions that exhibit Norman Connors ability to create enchanting musical collaborations."
Great Compilation...NOW OUT OF PRINT!

"If you have another 'Best Of Norman Connors' CD in your collection, you may want to add this one too! In addition to the predictable songs like 'Betcha By Golly Wow', 'You are My Starship', 'Valentine Love', 'Invitation', and 'This is Your Life', you get some rare tracks including one featuring a young Glenn Jones, and a rare duet between Norman & Phyllis Hyman ('Everything I Have Is Good'). One minor problem I have with this CD is the inclusion of a 3:24 edited version of 'You Are My Starship' (The album version is 4:33 long!!!). The liner notes are nice, and the songs are presented in a chronological sequence for a change! The CD ends with another RARE Connors classic, 'I'm Your Melody', which comes from the underrated & out of print CD from 1988. To spice things up, I remastered my CD to include the full version of 'Starship', and a bonus track ('Remember Who You Are' featuring Phyllis Hyman 1993). The only reason I gave it 4 stars was because of the predictable songs, but they are always nice to hear. This should've been a double CD release because so much rare music was left off, and most of Connors' CDs are only available as overpriced Japanese imports. (NOTE - Also get Norman's 'Remember Who You Are', 'Easy Living', and 'Eternity' CDs! Hopefully Mr.Connors will return with a new CD in the near future!)"
