I Just Can't Help Believin'.... this CD is AMAZING!
I admit, when Mr. Jon said he was re-recording some of his older CD's for improved sound quality, I was a little nervous about it, unsure if I would love the new takes as much as I love the originals from the first CD. Worry is over! :) My goodness, I am just so blown away! Not only is the sound quality so crisp and clear, it sounds as if Mr. Jon is singing in the same room as you,....but oh my, the way he sings!!!! :)) Every song is better than the original! American Trilogy is one of my all time favorites, and I venture to say that this is my all time favorite version! :) It will leave you breathless, Mr. Jon's performance is deserving of a standing ovation. :) Suspicious Minds is fantastic, I love the little lyric changes that were made in some of the songs. haha. Just Pretend and Pledging My Love will put you in a daze haha, they are so, so beautiful! And I know, I know, I know... haha, there Ain't No Sunshine when he's gone, but hearing Mr. Jon sing this song will make you feel warm. :) Almost Like A Song is so powerful and beautiful, but heart wrenching at the same time. I was happy to see that Mr. Jon added Take Good Care Of Her to the new takes CD, it was a special treat. Every song on this CD is incredible. You will want to listen to it repeatedly, and I do. :)
