Bennett at his best!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"For almost his entire career, Tony Bennett has performed in the shadow of Old Blue Eyes. But even the Master himself once proclaimed that Tony was the best of the rest. Personally, I feel that Bennett, for a breif tenure in the late 1960's, knocked the Chairman of the Board off of his perch with his album entitled "Something". Although most of the numbers on the album are covers, he somehow managed to leave his own heartfelt trademark on these songs. His voice was at it's peak and the arrangments of these songs are timeless. This album is , without a doubt, a must have for the serious Bennett fan. And, incidentally, don't just take my word for it. It's one of his all time favorites as well."
One of Tony's Best

"One of Tony's last Lps for Columbia and one of my favorites ever. The review called a music fan from Ottawa below says it all. Beautiful arrangements, flawless vocal interpretations, good material. He was at his vocal peak when this was recorded."
Middle of the road pop vocals...

"Tony Bennett is a middle of the road pop vocalist, and the best there ever was, however this re-issue of Tony Bennett's Something is right smack dab in the middle of the road, and there are so many other great CD re-issues of Bennett material, that make this less essential. The highlights of this CD are "On A Clear Day" & "Wave." However if you want Tony Bennett the jazz singer try "The Tony Bennett-Bill Evens Album," "Tony Bennett/Bill Evans-Together Again," "I Wanna Be Around," "Who Can I Turn To?," "If I Ruled The World: Songs For The Jet Set," "Sings Rogers & Hart," "Steppin' Out," and don't forget his latest and greatest "Bennett Sings Ellington: Hot & Cool." Try those titles first, then get this one. Bennett is truly a versitile artist, and "Something" was his most commercial LP aside from his greatest hits packeges which I highly reccomend you stay away from."
