Special Memories
I don't know if I can say anything that others haven't already said. My heart and soul has been touched in so many ways through the years, but it just keeps getting better. Through the depression and craziness that Mr. Jon has been through and fights off every day, there's a light that shines within. Sometimes it takes the darkest moments to truly see that light. When we're happy, we usually overlook it, but it's there. Jon is not only my friend and Brother in Christ, but he's much more than that! He's my hero. Without him and his light that shines, I don't think I would be hear today. Losing a child was the hardest moment in my life. Through Mr. Jon's music, his teachings and his heart, God used him to carry me from day to day when I could not stand on my own. Every word on this CD can be felt, not only heard. I thank God for you, Mr. Jon. I love you like a second dad and beyond that. I mean that from every part of my heart. God Bless you, Brother! Love, Earl

Memories Are Made of This
Once again the artwork is amazing !!! I love the vinyl style cd. The post cards are so beautiful and we start dreaming that Mr. Jon has travelled to places that are familiar to us and that we may have come across him ... Track 1 - Once again a song that has accompanied us for years. But this interpretation has also gained in maturity although, astonishingly, youth is making itself heard. What a prodigy!! The voice of accompaniment which is also familiar to us comes like velvet to perfect the whole. Track 2- I had rediscovered this song like many a few years ago with pretty pictures of the Presley family. This new interpretation is very beautiful. It makes you feel good for a few minutes like a soft comforting lullaby. Nice father and daughter duo. Thank you for this beautiful moment ... Track 3- One song I did not know yet Elvis sang it. How come I did not know this beautiful song? The logical sequel to the previous song …. Track 4- Another song I did not know. Beautiful song …. Track 5- Another song I love and another great interpretation of our Mr Wonderful. It's like one of those musicals that make you forget that the world is gray outside. How not to smile while listening to this wonderful and warm voice? Track 6 - Another nice re-discovery. A lovely ballad where youth is the guest star in Mr Jon’s voice ?? Track 7- Once again the emotion is overwhelming you with Mr Jon’s interpretation of this great song .The choir is sublime !!!! Goosebumps stamped!!!! Track 8- Not long ago I had this song in mind …I was so glad Mr Jon has chosen this song …Then ago the interpretation takes you very far in a world where nothing counts any more, time is suspended. Happiness is here …. Track 9 - A nice discovery … Track 10 - A jazzy song to close this wonderful album. Once again I knew the previous version by Mr Jon but this one is awesome!!!!! Thanks Mr Jon for these very beautiful moments it was a very beautiful parenthesis in a chaotic and very sad world… This afternoon I saw some nice rainbows ....

PURE PERFECTION!
I know I say the same thing about all of Jon's cd's because there all fantastic but the special edition cs's are truely special for so many different reasons , each song tells a different story and they are all reflections of Jon's beautiful soul!!!!This cd is pure perfection from start to finish...all songs are so carefully selected and flow so good together that it's impossible not to be moved unless you don't have a heart!! I don't know where to start as all the songs touched my heart..I can't pick just 1 or 2 favorites or even 3 or 4 or 5 because i love all of them so I will comment on all lol...track #1 wow...this song has never been sung better...sorry young Elvis but this is the best rendition by far lol!!! Elvis always sang with his heart and soul and his 50's rendition is beautiful no doubt but this new version is just so so special....I've always loved that song but this is my favorite version...and as an added bonus Jon's daughter sings with him in a few parts..beautiful!!! track #2 what can I say Jon and his daughter sing almost the whole song together and they sound like heavenly angels...their voices compliment each other and it's such a beautiful song once again never been sung better...I have it stuck in my head along with #1...such heartfelt and beautiful performances...Track #3 is a very meaningful song and it's a shame Elvis never got to record the whole song but to hear it now was such a special treat and a masterful rendition!!! Jon's vocals are awesome as always!!!Track #4 brought me to tears.. the singing is absolutley touching and outstanding...i loved Jon singing with his family again they sound amazing...I couldn't stop crying so I can imagine it was an emotional song for Jon to sing...but oh how beautifully and masterfully sung it with all his heart n soul!!!! Track #5 a timeless song that Jon took and made his own once again...the best version ever!!!.I smiled and cried listening to this song it evoked so many different emotions...but it's absolutely breathtaking!!!!a true classic!!!Track #6 another song Elvis sang in the 50's and once again another song that has never been sung better...i can't get it out of my head it's absolutley mesmerizing.. so much feeling there...another amazing heartfelt performance by the inimitable Jon....Track #7 WOW!!!!!!!I'm not sure how to desvribe this one it gave me goosebumps all over....Jon's voice sends shivers down my spine especially the chorus with Jon and his family singing together...like a heavenly choir...AMAZING!!!!!I loved that song before but sorry THIS IS BEST VERSION EVER HANDS DOWN!!!!!!!I don't know what else to say about this song it goes beyond being a masterpiece...so powerful and so touching and so true....I can picture Elvis perform that on stage if it had been released while he was still doing shows and it would have gotten a standing ovation!!! I actually started clapping for Jon and his family while listening to it....EXTRORDINARY! Track #8 Another wow!!!this one I think really showcases Jon's voice along with #7 and really all the songs on the cd but this song is is one I'm sure Jon relates to and he sings it from the depths of his soul...i cried listening to this one also..very sad but very beautiful....I can certainly relate to it myself it has had a very profound effect on me...and it's haunting me...what a voice and what a beautiful song...wow!!!#9 another one I'm sure Jon relates to and really i'm sure alot of us do....I heard other versions before but nothing beats this one...and Im not partial because I love Jon and his voice it's the truth...another gem another masterpiece another heartfelt performance!!!and then #10 after all the tears listening to the rest of the songs this was the perfect song to end the cd with... it ended on a very cheerful and happy note and it's a song that is so catchy that you can't help but tap your feet listening to it and want to listen again and again..and once again the best version ever by far... Jon is singing with his family in the chorus and they couldn't sound better together...I repeated myself and forgive me for doing that I am not very eloquent but I know what I hear and I know how I feel and this is a masterpiece cd that you will want to listen to again and again and again!!!!Anybody who says different don't know what they are talking about!!!this is amazing in so many different ways from all the songs telling a story about Jon's life to the way he sings them from the depths of his heart to his family singing together that is so special and they all sound so beautiful together...A standing ovation from me!!!!I can't wait to listen to the other cd I am sure that one is another masterpiece but for now I am addicted to this one and I don't think I will ever get tired of listening to these songs...I love you Jon and your beautiful heart and you have undoubtedly the best voice in the world!!!!!!!I hope a lot of people let you know just how beautiful this cd is and if not then I don't know what to say...something must be wrong with them!!!This is a treasure not to be missed!!!

STANDING OVATION!
This CD is not only a masterpiece but way more. Jon sings together with his family the songs it most apply on his life and on his feelings. This makes it so very special to listen to it. Hearing all singing together by knowing his love for his family and his sacrifices, it touch me deeply. Very admirable is his continuously strong voice. Every single song sounds wonderful and special. Every single song takes me into Jon's world and show me his world and his feelings. He tells a story. He tells parts out of his life and his story. “September Song” blew me already away when Jon released it on his YouTube channel but listening all these wonderful songs I had a hard time to come back with my thoughts into here and now. This songs I can listen over and over again. His performance is almost not describable and nothing less than giving deeply touched a standing ovation which should never end. The design of this CD fit perfectly. I love it. Such a treasure!!!

A Family Treasure
First of all, I want to say that hearing Jon sing with his children is like getting a sneak peak inside his living room during a special family get together. I LOVE that he has brought them in with creating these special moments that we all get to share and enjoy. Many of the songs are tearjerkers about life's struggles and lost love. As Jon's family has I'm sure been through the same life's heartache and triumphs with him, it's especially apropos for his family to accompany him throughout this beautiful (and sad) CD. I have always LOVED #1 and Jon's daughters did wonderfully as his backup. #3 I'm not sure I've heard of that song before but the lyrics are a wonderful illustration of the passage of time- Jon did a beautiful job at bringing these words to life. #4 was again, sung so beautifully by Jon..that one's a tear jerker. #5 I'd take Jon over Frank ANY DAY! #7 is my FAVORITE on this cd--BEAUTIFULLY sung!! #10- I'd take Jon over Dean ANY DAY, as well. It was a treat hearing him sing both 7 and 10--If Jon was part of the Rat Pack, he'd show them a thing or two, :) Overall, this CD was a BEAUTIFUL compilation of Jon's magical voice blended with his "precious gold", his family. On a last note, I LOVED the cd record graphic!!

Unique and marvelous performance
The new CD " Memories Are Made Of This" is a real masterpiece. Mr. Jon voice and performance is very intense, amazing and a piece of art giving us emotions and passion. The songs are very touching and Mr.Jon voice surrounded by very gifted members of his Family singing in harmony with him gives to us a very special, unique, impressing, moving experience. The songs 1 and 2 are very beautiful and soft, Mr. Jon voice is pure and reaches your soul. It is fantastic how Mr. Jon sings these 50s songs from Elvis conveying to us the same emotions and feelings with a vocal and performance perfection. The song 3 is a superb performance with the special energizing flavor from the 1969 Elvis recordings. The song 4 is very intense and full of feelings. It touches the heart of the listener. The song 5 is a classic interpreted by Mr. Jon with perfection, elegance and inspiration and his voice is smooth and perfect. The song 6 is a superb and magnificent performance where the spoken part by Mr. Jon reaches the pure poetry of a perfect theatre show. I should never stop listening to it. The song 7 is another classic with a very special deep and soulful interpretation by Mr.Jon. The song 8 is full of feeling and meanings and MrJon managed brilliantly to give a new light to this old classic song with his magistral interpretation. The song 9 is very deep and felt interpretation which perfectly conveys the nostalgia feeling. In the song 10 Mr.Jon interpretation is bringing a sense of happiness and joy and the rhythm is involving. The chorus of his Family is perfectly blended into this beautiful performance. Greetings from Angelo, Italy.

A masterpiece of the most beautiful soul!!!!
This wonderful and fantastic CD is like the most beautiful painting where the portrait is the most beautiful soul. Jon has the ability to convey his innermost soul in all his songs.The songs on this CD are so beautifully performed by him and his family. It's hard to keep my tears away when I listen to this CD because it's so beautiful. Hearing Jon's beautiful voice makes me lose my breath, I have certainly never heard a more beautiful voice in my entire life. You can definitely understand that Jon and his family have put a lot of effort and time into this special and fantastic CD and the end result is absolutely perfect. I can't pick any favorite song because all the songs on this CD are my favorites. I really love them all! Jon sings with such a feeling and when he starts talking in some of the songs it is so incredibly beautiful that you melt right away, it goes straight into the heart. I am speechless by how beautiful and fantastic this CD is, the words are not enough to describe it. The CD cover is like a painting created by master artist Jon. What a beautiful CD cover! Even through this CD cover we can see his soul and we can accompany him into his life through all his projects, what an incredible honor for us friends and fans and what a fantastic trip. What a talented man and what a talented family he has, they sing so beautifully and it is so wonderful to hear them together.The lyrics on these songs are really so beautiful. You can feel how Jon put his feelings in every song, in every word,you can feel his great love he gives in his songs but also some sadness, loneliness, joy and frustration. I get the feeling that he is telling us about what his life has been like and how it is and what he dreams of and you can understand the great love he has for his family and what they in turn mean to him in his life. Jon is Love straight through and it's no wonder you love him back. It is a blessing to listen to these beautiful tones with this soft, tender and loving voice. Several of the songs on this CD I had never heard before and I am so grateful that Jon shares of the music history through other artists songs as well.You learn a lot through Jon. I am really so happy to own this precious treasure and all the other treasures from him that I will carry with me throughout the rest of my life.Thank you so much dear Jon for a fantastic portrait of yourself and your soul on this CD and of course also the beautiful CD cover that tells us about your.

A Wholeheartedly, Beautfiul Family Masterpiece!
Everything about this CD is brilliant, and I highly recommend this CD to everyone...... It's always hard to pick favorites from any of Jon's CD's, because all the songs he sings are ALL so special and absolutely beautiful. I love THEM all! Jon's song choices on this CD all have such a special, deep meaning, so much so....that your will feel his tender heart in every single beautiful note that he sings, especially in tracks #1, #6, and #9 (#9 first time hearing it, and wow)....where my emotions got the best of me, and tears were rolling down my face. He got my heart from the very start...those tears continued in tracks #2 and #4, as I have always loved these songs..and love to hear Jon singing them. So very beautiful!!............... Tracks #3, #5, #7, and #8 have had multiple versions of these songs over the years, but Jon's outstanding versions are truly the best, and are my top favorites on the CD. I love them!! ..................................... Track#10 is a spunky, but nostalgic song. Hearing Jon's wonderful family singing along with him in this particular song, is the icing on the cake. It is so refreshing to hear the perfect harmony of their voices, as they sing so beautifully together…it is incredibly special.................. Before I end this review, I would also like to mention about the CD packaging of this CD. The exquisitely designed one-of-a-kind CD cover, that Jon so cleverly designed, is beyond amazing!! I am enjoying every single detail of it, including the beautifully designed CD that is inside the cover, as it's not your typical looking CD. You will see what I mean when you receive this CD package, it is so unique!! Jon's artwork is, and always has been, magnificent. His creative talents are endless. (as is his singing, authoring, and script writing too) I seriously don't think there isn't a thing he can't do. He is a true gift from God, on all levels.................... Thank You Jon, and Thank You To Your Family for taking the time to design and record this beautiful CD!! May God Bless You All :-)

Memories ARE Made of This!
Right out of the package, I knew I was going to love this CD. Well, first, because it is Mr. Jon, and all of his music is lovable. And second, the vintage-style CD cover is so eye-catching! It’s like looking through an Elvis family album and admiring all the photos within it. Every corner and every inch holds a precious gem. And as for the music, it truly lives up to its title, as so many of the songs bring back wonderful memories from my childhood. Of course, I am partial to the songs that I remember hearing Elvis sing when I was a young girl, so tracks 6, 2, and 1 are my absolute favorites! My Daddy had those records and he used to let me play them, which I did over and over and over again. That voice was the most beautiful sound I had ever heard back then, and Mr. Jon’s is no different now. Track #7 also brings back childhood memories, as I used to play it repeatedly on the piano when I was learning to play. Now hearing Mr. Jon’s version, I love the song even more. And the remaining tracks are set to become new favorites for me. Tracks #3 and #4 both make my heart swell with emotion as I hear Mr. Jon’s tender heart in his voice. And hearing his family harmonize with him appreciably adds to the nostalgia. I imagine Mr. Jon surrounded by his beautiful family as they sing together, and hearing them makes me happy as I know it makes him happy to have them sing with him. And that love radiates through the music to add just the right sentimental touch to each song, while the most beautiful voice in the world carries me back to another place and time. Memories are made of this!

Cherished Memories
I hold in my hands a gift that I long waited for; not just any gift, but the most awaited melodic heirloom that I received from the greatest Legend of all times! The CD sleeve has a distinctive beauty that comes to life once you touch it,and starts telling about distant and heartwarming memories that were folded by time and kept away in the legend's memoir. Memories of visited paradises, and about a life fit for a king alone! Inside you will find a symbol of Love presented to you with nobility reflecting the depth of care that this Legend has for us. Just like a charming knight he attached next to the symbol a beautiful calligraphy letter addressed to his precious family and of course you and me. I felt as if the words popped up and started welcoming me and explaining to me how this enchanted CD and heartfelt melodies came about.. In the adjacent sleeve you would see the enchanted CD anxious to see the light and reveal the beauty of its melodies!! It is designed to be the envy of its kind! No other CD can compare and it reflects the artistic skills of the legend!! Just by looking at this CD you will realize that its enchantment created an aura around it! It is truly a celestial CD!! I was led to listen immediately and Voila!! My depressed and sad mood (due to being concerned about my mom's suffering from stage 4 cancer) was put on the shelf for a while and I stepped into the magic and melodic world of wonderful Jon. It felt like consuming the most awaited magical potion that made all my worries disappear for as long as the CD and its virtual journey lasted. As I started listening, life around me stopped and I was transported to the Mystery Train Land! What a great way to start this radiant chain of beautiful songs! Track #1 is so tender, coming from the depth of a beautiful heart that is full with love and compassion. It is a favorite of mine because it hides many past memories that come back to exist . Jon ignites the song with his unmatched tender ,velvety voice that gives a glimpse of magic that awaits us in the rest of the ballads. The Mystery daughter's voice is heavenly and sings in harmony to perfection with daddy. Then comes track #2 Our wonderful Conductor takes us on a ride to lovers haven. When you sing a song Jon, it feels as if you wrote your feelings in that song and made it live forever in our hearts. Wonderful Jon' and Mystery daughter' sweet voices that blend together flawlessly immortalize this song! Track#3 We find ourselves at the door of a baby's room where , if you look through the key hole you will witness that the Legend's love for his family is worth more than all the treasures of the earth! What a meaningful ballad that moved me so and brought me to tears!This song is now one of my most favorites. Track # 4 The greatest love on earth is the love of a father towards his children and behind every song there is an untold story of struggles, but the care and the love of the Legend is the winning card in the game of life. why read books when songs can tell whole stories in a few minutes????. Track #5 it hit a sensitive chord in my heart and streams of tears started flowing from my eyes as I remembered my obstacles and yet I can't help but smile with the song that is inviting me to do so....What a majestic song this one became with the awesome voices of Wonderful Jon and family. When it comes to music, you know how to mold a song to your perfection and it emerges a unique masterpiece. Different artists recorded this song but your rendition is on a different level altogether. Every song will be a chef d'oeuvre once you touch it with your skills, musical knowledge and of course your wonderful unequal voice, and paired with the extraordinary voices of your family it became heavenly and out of this world piece of art! Track #6 And tears kept coming. Such a secret place this land of tears especially when the song flows from Jon's heart with passion and different emotions. I always look forward to hear the spoken part because it flows from the legend's lips like rivers of poetry. Track#7 takes you up on the scale of poetry and music to the doors of love. Amazing and earth chattering, magnificent rendition, never heard anything like it before. As if I am listening to the choirs of angels in heaven. Chapeau bas to your talented family. Track #8 brings us back to earth and to reality. Jon's voice rejuvenated this classic old song and bestowed on it some youthfulness after it was neglected within the pages of the past. Jon sings another artist's song, nails it. There has never been or ever will be anyone to compare to you Wonderful Jon.You are an extremely talented performer, unique in every way.Track #9 Outstanding and magnificent performance that gives me goosebumps all over and warms my heart. Sensational! You are timeless and you have never sounded better! Such a class! A lot of singers touch the heart but only Jon touches the inner soul. Track#10 So much resonance and beauty in your voice. Deep and yet so powerful! There is no better gemstone to seal this musical treasure chest with. One song, the lyrics, the melody can take you back to a moment in time like nothing else can. One old song brings to life a thousand old memories. Music can change the world especially when it feels like the lyrics to the song you're listening to were written just for you. The beautiful thing is music can be like a time machine where your dreams will come true. Every song has its own beauty just like different fragrant flowers in an enchanted garden!! But if I were to pick a few that you wonderfully transformed with your supernatural vocal cords, then I would pick all of them, yes all of them because they are breathtaking!!!. What an operatic voice you have that is getting finer than wine and stronger, smoother than any voice I have ever heard! What is unearthly to me is that you take a regular, casual song and you breath life through it with the magic of your extraordinary voice to make it the queen of songs and the envy of other songs!! What a beautiful treasure to own!!! Your family did an amazing job singing with you, Wonderful Jon! They all have gorgeous voices! I can't thank you enough for this gift that transformed my mood and lifted my spirit in this weird time of uncertainty that we are experiencing. The quality of the CD recordings is excellent as if it were done in a professional studio. WOW!! You love what you do and you share around you and that's your greatness Wonderful Jon! A glorious voice sent from heaven! You are timeless!!The greatest artist, performer and entertainer forever and all the time!!! A great addition to the Mystery Train CD's. God bless you, Wonderful Jon

Thank you and your music!!
In the spring 2020, Jon has released a great masterpiece, "Memories Are Made of This". Despite the sorrow and depression he had to go through, and the time of darkness filled with sadness and despair due to the unprecedented pandemic that has hit all over the world without exception, he completed another great work of love, never abandoning his promises for his friends and fans. The CD is a wonderful gift that brightening and warming my heart filled with thick gray shadow in such a sad and gloomy spring. All the songs in the CD are the duet songs by him and his beautiful family. It is a masterpiece born of the fruit of his and his family's rich love. It is the greatest work of love that no one in the world can imitate because it cannot be started and completed at all without love. All of the songs have wonderful vibe! They make me feel touched endlessly. Jon who has amazing voice and genius musicality, and his family, who inherited his excellent musical genes, their voice are all amazing. They create a extraordinary and wonderful harmony. This is such a precious CD that means more than music CD. The songs that he selected were so special and meaningful. The CD is like the records of footsteps of his life, autobiography written honestly and sincerely, and it is like perfect four-movement symphony, and it is like a wonderful picture completed with a puzzle of his life and his thoughts. From the songs he chose, I saw his goodness, purity and honesty in his soul. I got goose bumps when I listened to the Track #1, #2. I was so amazed to hear his voice of 1950's from the CD that has made in 2020. It wasn't like turning back the time, it was like stopping the time. I witnessed what voice was blessed from his amazing voice. I would like to thank you, dear Jon for completing the song of track #3. You recorded the song only 1:05 in the America sound 1969. I love this song. I am so grateful to keep the song that has recorded perfectly in 2020. I was so surprised at Track #5. I was so happy like that you sing my request song. Time changes a lot of things in the world and nobody can go back to the days of memories. But Jon has an amazing ability to give us timeless wonderful joy. His voice is the perfect combination of his unique amazing voice that has always been unalterable and his unique sophistication that has evolved with the years. Jon has a very incredible singing ability to remake and to develop the original song very creatively and surprisingly with his uniqueness without compromising the main characteristics of the original song. It is an unique special ability that only Jon has. Track#5,#7,#8 #9,#10 proves his such ability. I love better Jon's versions. Especially I didn't like the original of Track#8, But I became like the song thanks to Jon. I love also better Jon's version than original about Track #10 because I love better to listen to the song with his voice and his way than original song. Jon makes me enjoy even the songs that I didn't enjoy. The CD is so precious, special limit edition that was allowed to only his true friends and fans. It was made by Jon and his family without the commercial intent or technique for the box office. Especially, this CD was released in very hard time of all around world. I am so grateful and honored to have this precious CD. Thank you. dear Jon for making this precious CD for us. Thank you and your family for sharing your wonderful talent and precious time and effort for us. I thank both you and your music because your music is not just music but your life, your happiness, your memories, and your everything. I love you and your music forever. God bless you and your family, Hae

Memories Are Made Of this
MEMORIES ARE MADE OF THIS Words fall short from describing what Jon’s incredible performances make you feel while listening to this GORGEOUS, AMAZING ,MASTERPIECE CD .The song selection is outstanding. Jon is so richly and uniquely talented a truly gifted artist but to be able to listen to Jon’s beautiful voice singing these touching songs harmony with the other members of his Family have created such an impressive energetic atmosphere that you will be able to feel the vibration deep within your soul.These lyrics will remain in history, because it goes to the very heart of the people . There is definitely a connection between music and what we associate it with that gives it power, or more power if it already has it. One can experience complex emotions listening to these songs .When it comes to exploring emotions of sadness and working through uncertain times/feelings nobody can convey the depth of a song like Jon does , those songs are definitely special to him and it transpires from the way Jon interprets them. Track #1 & #2 Lovely, tender ballads. You will be amazed at how Jon can sing Elvis’ early songs he sang both songs capturing the same magic, that same unique style and vocal tones that Elvis had at that young age,Jon has really met perfection here. The heart is overflowing with love listening to this .If you love Elvis’ early version of these songs these covers will blow you out completely, they display Jon's talents and style to perfection .Listening to this is like a jump in the past. Jon and his Daughter sound so beautiful singing together their voices blend in perfectly Track #3 is a gem! When I first heard it from Elvis( who sang the opening lines during the 69 recordings at the American Sound Studios), it was awesome but I was sad it never got finished ..This will move you in a way that is hard to describe. Indeed a SPLENDID ,WARMLY HEARTED performance that will leave you speechless. Track # 4 this is one of those songs that literally rip your heart from your chest, especially for the intensity and sensitivity with which Jon interprets this , he pours out his heart and soul completely on this performance and that is clearly “felt “in the heart of the listener .It captures and translates into music the special bond between Father and Daughter Track # 5 No words to describe how beautiful this TIMELESS GEM is!Jon has given a GORGEOUS rendition of this song . Most beautiful version of this song that I have ever heard...it will make you smile through the tears listening to this but hard to smile when the melody sounds so sad. A discrepancy of opinions exists on this song I personally think this is a very emotional song , inspirational and sad at the same time such meaningful lyrics along with Jon’s silky smooth and soothing voice, glimpses of heaven in sight. You will love this duet with his daughter. Many artists recorded this song , but I think Jon’s cover is EXCEPTIONALLY BEAUTIFUL, it really pierces your heart. I think Jon’s cover of this song captures and conveys better than any other cover the original idea behind this song with which Chaplin first wrote the music of this song .Track # 6 A instant classic! I give it the same amount of stars that are in the heavens..You will definitely skip a beat hearing this song, it is EMOTIONAL and POWERFUL at the same time, and Jon puts so much emotion and feeling into this song, his voice is so heavenly beautiful .It is poetry arrangement of music , the spoken part helps increase the emotion and once again the voices blending are so beautiful. For all my life I thought no man would dare try to "improve" on this cause I erroneously thought nobody could improve on something that was already PERFECT. Jon has proved me wrong with this new brilliant new cover .Track #7 If there is a category somewhere called "Immortal songs," this one and its interpreter,Jon, belong in that category. MAGNIFICENT SONG BEAUTIFULLY PERFORMED and amazing vocals. The most beautiful description of love I've ever heard!!! Very deep and soulful I always liked the original by Bette Midler, but no comparison with Jon’s cover .EXTRAORDINARILY AWESOME and powerful performances .Track # 8 Is EMOTIONAL and powerful at the same time, Regardless how many times you will listen to this song ,you’ll never get enough of it .This wouldn't seem to be an easy song to sing but Jon sings it effortlessly. Great, poignant lyrics, nostalgia all the way through the pathos of remembrance in this song is incredible. Listen to the lyrics, no one has ever come close to the phrasing and beauty of Jon's singing , Deep sadness often deepens love and can help create awesome things , this song is tangible proof of it . What an AMAZING PERFORMANCE.Once again Jon nailed it in every single way, many recorded it but it's extraordinary how he can take almost any song and "own" it, now he has made this song immortal .Track#9 it is emotional and powerful at the same time, along with Jon’s golden voice so smooth and rich with emotion ironically it makes you think of quiet, small, whispering waves on a quiet sunny spring day,a lot of people will relate to some of the lyrics Track #10 This brand new take is a GEM! The excellent lyrics come through beautifully and Jon's performance is EXCELLENT, the voice is pure gold the melodies are catchy the mix and sound is incredible.A truly memorable song is one you get stuck in your head, and you never forget, a song that can either carry away your depression or aid your happiness and this song has all the most indispensable components which ‘a GREAT SONG requires. Whether you will listen to the songs with headphones or on speakers , the sound is perfect and fluid , crystal clear and crisp in each single song.Jon’s masterpiece collection of recordings - just seems to get greater with every passing year, ….and probably it was meant to be in this way …All I can say is Thank you Jon for these slices of paradise to brighten the world and for bringing back with your talent true wonderful music , the world must have been a different place when the general population listened to music like this…and Jon is bringing it all back for us.They don't make them like this anymore, a true voice, a true talent... still remained unmatched. Those songs are gifts held in the heart and in the soul …. And Jon is without a doubt one of the most beautiful and talented people in the world, I'm glad to have lived and been privileged enough to witness A must have CD for everyone who really truly enjoys listening to the most beautiful music and voice ever!Highly recommended!
