Orchid in the Storm [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bob Gottlieb
Finally, here is a disc of Aaron Neville doing what he does best, singing the great music of the '50s. This is a 1983 EP consisting of five songs, expanded with four more songs. Though it is still short at 33 minutes and 35 seconds, it is not a wham-bam/on-and-off affair like it may seem, and there is not a throwaway cut here.

Though it is still short at 33 minutes and 35 seconds, it is not a wham-bam/on-and-off affair like it may seem, and there is not a throwaway cut here.

You haven't heard it done like this before unless you saw the Neville Brothers years ago. There are no highlights, as all the songs seem to stand out; whether you want to single out Wardell Quezergue's stunning arrangement of Jerry Butler's "For Your Precious Love" or maybe the renowned Doc Pomus classic "Save the Last Dance for Me," each has that moment that takes you away. This is a labor of love by artists, musicians, and producers that showcases a man's remarkable abilities to take a listener to new places not of this realm.
