Stardust... The Great American Songbook, Volume III

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - William Pearl
Rod Stewart has proved by now that his involvement with American popular song is more than infatuation. His third volume of standards displays the same verve and good-natured ease as his two earlier editions, but here Stewart’s interpretations have grown richer in feeling and even more expressive.

Barnes & Noble - William Pearl
Rod Stewart has proved by now that his involvement with American popular song is more than infatuation. His third volume of standards displays the same verve and good-natured ease as his two earlier editions, but here Stewart’s interpretations have grown richer in feeling and even more expressive. He’s still working with the cream of the crop: Cole Porter, Frank Loesser, Rodgers and Hart, and Hoagy Carmichael are among the supremely gifted composers Stewart draws upon for classic material. And he’s bringing more top-notch talent into the mix to join in the fun, including Eric Clapton, who contributes an acoustic guitar solo on “Blue Moon”; Stevie Wonder, who adds his harmonica to “What a Wonderful World”; and, in charming vocal duets, Bette Midler (on "Manhattan") and Dolly Parton (on "Baby It's Cold Outside"). When it comes to the Great American Songbook, the former Mod has barely scratched the surface; they’ll be plenty more volumes of this heartfelt series to look forward to before he’s through.
