Music fan from Va.


This album of Clay's is the first album that I have bought in a very long time. I think that he has got one of the most amazing voices that I have ever heard. I enjoy every song on this album.

Title: Renee and Bryn: Under the Stars
Label: Decca
Artist: Stephen Sondheim, Rupert Holmes

Beautiful Creative Energy...


Bryn and Renee are two of the top 10 opera singers in the world, but they find it very difficult (especially Renee) to have sing in a musical-theatre style. They sing everything very square, and when they don't, the phrasing is often times irregular. Good CD, but not a must have.

only the #1s


when i first heard about another DIANAROSS AND THE SUPREMES hits cd ,i thought,not again!But.....i was wrong,first the songs have been remastered ....and second...many of them have been extended or there is another version,, as in the case with REFLECTIONS and the cold ending to YOU KEEP ME HANGIN ON.now i have heard these songs many times for the last 40 years but this cd ,well,it gives some of these songs a newness about them.it seems to make them sound fresh and clean,and even new.i thought more could have been done with this collection as the SUPREMES and ROSS has several other #1 that are not included but i will assume motown wanted to keep this as a single disc.also with some of the remixes,...it left me wanting more.i wanted to hear a remastered IN AND OUT OF LOVE,LOVE IS AN ITCHING IN MY HEART,MY WORLD IS EMPTY,as these songs did not go to #1....they are not included.i am also glad they did include the 70s hit STONED LOVE which was a million plus seller for the group in late 1970 without Ross.it shows how great the ladies all where!!!not just one of them!but again i wanted more such as an extended NATHAN JONES,which to me is one of their most underated hits from 71.maybe we will get part 2.if you want the entire hits collection get the ULTIMATE COLLECTION or the 70S ANTHOLOGY.you wont be disapointed with either.i also love the remix of YOU KEEP ME HANGIN ON.too bad they didnt release it as a single like they did the ELVIS ones...stand by for the MOTOWN REMIX cd coming in may with the new MY WORLD IS EMPTY remix!!!!!!!!

powerful & sublime


One of the most extraordinary recordings I've ever heard, this is chanting with overtones, like one can hear sung by Tibetan monks. Recorded in 1986 at the abbey of Le Thoronet, France, the first two selections use the accompaniment of tambura, and the final piece on each CD includes a drum, otherwise these pieces are for 1, 2, or 3 voices, and the enormity of the sound will amaze you.
This sound achieved by David Hykes is unearthly. Peaceful, moving, magical. Great to meditate to. Perhaps one could describe it as a hybrid between Gregorian chant and Middle Eastern Sufi music, but in reality, this is an entirely new musical animal, one of a kind and almost impossible to duplicate.
"Foregather in the Name" is a 15 minute piece for three voices and drum that's spectacular, as is the short solo by Timothy Hill, "Eleison Closing". This two CD set is the original one tape cassette (which had approximately 40 minutes on each side) and it does have the annoying flap that lifts from the center holding both CDs, but in this case, the flap is worth lifting. This is music that might levitate your soul to a place of great joy.
