20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Billy Stewart

by Billy Stewart

CD

Overview

The omission of Stewart's heartfelt "How Nice It Is," one of his seven best singles, is the only sore spot. Compilers always overlook the tension-filled ballad on these short collections (11 songs). Stewart's six other gems -- "Strange Feeling," "I Do Love You," "Sitting in the Park," "Cross My Heart," "Summertime," and "Secret Love" -- sparkle like diamonds with their digitally remastered makeovers. Also solid are "Everyday I Have the Blues," with vocal accompaniment by the Dells, and "Reap What You Sow," featuring the Jewels.

Recently, I read an article about Elvis Costello that mentioned Billy Stewart's rendition of Summertime. This brought back memories from the late 1960's when I was in my undergraduate studies and attended Afro-American parties on campus and on a neighboring military base. Billy Stewart didn't fit the Motown image that was succesfully marketed to the general public. I was fortunate to have been accepted at these parties. Everyone there danced to Billy Stewart. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to all his hits again. Thanks.
