Thread Name: CD: The Glory of Gershwin..George Martin
Subject: RE: CD: The Glory of Gershwin..George Martin
Personally, I love the CD - it has a regular place in my "ready use" rack. It's good to hear artists normally regarded as rockers (MeatLoaf sings Gershwin!) showing a more sensitive side and making a pretty good fist of it too.

George Martin's contribution to eliciting the performances was probably considerable.

Hearing artists perform material other than that they are best known for is often interesting. Does anyone else cherish the memory of Peter Bellamy singing blues, or the Roche's version of Handel's "Hallelujah Chorus"?
