This was a few years ago when I bought the CD after hearing the song "Jessie" and never have I loved a CD more after hearing just one song. Every song is great. Kadison is truly talented. The piano playing is inspirational and the lyrics are honest and heartfelt.
If stranded on a desert island this is the one CD I would want. Kadison is a troubadour of romance. His mixes his strong "Elton John-like" voice and beautiful piano compositions with sweet enteratining lyrics, all-the-while telling a very good story. From the huge adult contemporary hit "Jessie", to the definitive love ballard "Beautiful in My Eyes", to the awesome final track, "Georgia Rain",and every song in-between; Kadison spins great yarns about longing for, enjoying and losing true love. These are songs of experiences that people from every walk-of-life can really relate to.
