This melancholy 1976 release includes what would be EJ's last Top 10 hit for three years ("Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word") and is loaded with numbers reflecting the ennui and burnout both John and Taupin were experiencing at the time ("Between Seventeen And Twenty," "If There's A God In Heaven [What's He Waiting For?]"). Elsewhere, John and Taupin write songs in tribute to Edith Piaf ("Cage The Songbird") and a depressingly debilitated Elvis Presley ("Idol"). Despite the inclusion of these and other heart-wrenching compositions like "Tonight," John's irrepressible upbeat attitude comes to the fore on tracks such as the Caleb Quaye instrumental "Your Starter For..." and "One Horse Town," a peppy song about life in the rural South. Most gratifying is a collaboration with the Reverend James Cleveland and his Southern California Choir on the funky "Boogie Pilgrim. Mercury. 2004.
Fall in love with Andre Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra as they bring you a show of favourites under the star-studded summer skies.
Michael Renier is a very accomplished South African tenor applying his craft abroad.
He has spent the last 3 decades in Opera House in Japan, Germany, Holland, Austria, England, Czech Republic, South Africa with a repertoire consisting of more than 70 tenor roles including the dramatic Otello, Calaf in Turandot, Radame in Aida, Cavaradossi in Tosca, Don Jose in Carmen, Riccardo in Un Ballo and many other German roles. Many of these performances were broadcast live on European TV. Michaels still performs in concerts all over the world, singing those evergreens that have inspired so many tenors in the past.
He is in South Africa at the moment to promote his catalogue of releases but also his newly launch autobiography Singing and Dreaming through Life which not only gives a marvellous insight into the rise of a small farm boy to International stardom but also with shares some wonderful behind the scene info on the various productions Michael performed in.
This kid can really swing. That, in a nutshell, sums up the extraordinary appeal of a 25 year-old Vancouver vocalist with a gift for making some of the greatest songs of all time entirely his own. His name is Michael Buble (pronounced Boo-blay) and the evidence of his singular swingness is on abundant display with his irresistible Reprise/143 Records debut album. More than a tribute to the gold standard of music's most enduring songs; more than a homage to a bygone era of songwriting and performing: the thirteen tracks of Michael Buble announce in no uncertain terms the arrival of a major new talent with a flair for infusing the familiar and beloved music with a fresh, original and utterly unique sensibility entirely his own. Michael Buble can, indeed, swing.
