Look on the Bright Side
Raymond D. Hedin | Fair Lawn, New Jersey United States | 06/23/2004
(1 out of 5 stars)

""The Great" Sonny Turner has been voted THE Cabaret Entertainer of the Year for going on two decades in Las Vegas. Sonny was hand picked by Tony Williams as his replacement as lead singer of THE PLATTERS in 1959 at the age of 19. In 1970,Sonny to put together The Sonny Turner Show and became a "Total Entertainer". All of us are familiar with the great full string arangements of Platters songs. Look on the Bright Side is weak musically. It doesn't have the Show Band Sound that Sonny works so well with. There is no drive in the music as was in his great album of 1973, STANDING OVATION, which is like seeing Sonny LIVE. This album is Super Charged with A first class rhythm, horn and string sections that push Sonny to his limits ,and best.The Bright Side of this CD is the picture of Sonny on the cover.... he looks great. Once you see Sonny in person, you will never forget him. He is much more than a Platter since he can sing opera, gospel, rock ,blues, jazz and Platters ,with the Best of the Best."
