like the finest of wines / 5
This superb collection consists of songs recorded from the mid-eighties to the mid-nineties, and like fine wine, Engelbert sounding better than ever; his voice is a little deeper but not diminished in luster or range, with interpretations of some classic songs brimming over with soulful emotion.
There are three less familiar songs from Eng's '96 "After Dark" CD (tracks # 5, # 10, # 17), five that come from his collaboration with arranger/conductor Bebu Silvetti in the lush, spectacular '95 CD "Love Unchained" (tracks # 1, # 12, # 13, # 15 & # 16), and the rest of the nine tracks can be found in the mellow, jazzy "Collector's Edition" 2 CD set (also released as "An Evening With...").

Favorites include "Unchained Melody", with the final section taken in a high, full voice...with seemingly endless breath control...that is thrilling, the incredibly gentle "The Very Thought of You", the glorious melody of "Love is a Many Splendored Thing", and the country-flavored "There's No Song Like a Slow Song".
One can never have too much of Englebert, and this is another compilation of gorgeous music, sung to perfection, and is a little different because it does not contain any of the songs that made him a household name in the '60s and '70s.
The liner notes give the recording history of the songs, as to who originally performed them (5 were hits for Bing Crosby, 3 for Nat King Cole, etc) but no info on the Engelbert recordings.
The sound is good and total playing time is 60'30.

Song "Killing me softly with his song"
Strumming my pain with his fingers,
singing my life with his words,
killing me softly with his song,
killing me softly with his song,
telling my whole life with his words,
killing me softly with his song

I heard he sang a good song, I heard he had a style.
And so I came to see him to listen for a while.
And there he was this young boy, a stranger to my eyes.

I felt all flushed with fever, embarrassed by the crowd,
I felt he found my letters and read each one out loud.
I prayed that he would finish but he just kept right on.

He sang as if he knew me in all my dark despair
and then he looked right through me as if I wasn't there.
But he just came to singing, singing clear and strong.
