Albums issued on CD
- Hello everybody!
Great news! I've just received the "A Tribute to
Carpenters" CD (King Records - KICP 655 - 2,854 yens) and found that Janis'
ability to deliver a song -as well as her perfect choice of material- continue
to amaze me!
The second track on the album is "Only Yesterday", a mid-tempo tune in which
Janis is helped in backing vocals by the NY Voices Kim Nazarian, Peter Eldridge,
Lauren Kinhan and Marlon Saunders, and that also provides her opportunity to
show her low register; but I must say that I truely fell in love with her
rendition of "Crescent Moon" (trk. 7), off the famous 1971 album "Close To You".
The first lines remind me -in a way- of "Eleanor Rigby" because of the
omnipresence of a nostalgic accordion, then the mood turns into a soft jazzy
ballad (piano, bass, drums) but never leaves the quiet presence of nature (a
brook can be heard in the background). No wonder Janis insisted, "If I do not
get to sing CS, I am not participating in this project!" (boy, was she right!).
One of the drawbacks of this edition is that the cover and inner sleeve
spell her surname erroneously as "Seigel", and in the liner notes as well,
but all the same you can say is a round album and a well deserved tribute.
If anybody wishes to have a scan of the cover & sleeve, please let me know, OK?
