Sing your song SWEET MUSIC MAN,...I Believe in YOU! ♥
The saying, "Music expresses that which cannot be said, and impossible to be silent", couldn't be a more accurate expression in describing this CD. Each song on this CD is as if it was written exclusively for Mr. Jon, representing some aspect of his life, and just begging for Mr. Jon's voice. Unequivocally, Mr. Jon has the MOST BEAUTIFUL VOICE EVER! Through Mr. Jon's miraculous voice, you can also feel his exceptionally beautiful heart in the words of these songs, he has the ability to bring each song to life, causing you to become completely immersed. You will feel the pleasure of his songs, and you will also feel his pain.:( I can't count the times I've listened, but no matter how many, I can't get through without many, many tears. The deep emotional impact has such a lasting effect, long after the music is through. The first and title track, The Legend & The Man opens this story and puts it all into perspective. God, I LOVE THIS MAN! How my heart breaks to think, the expectations that are put upon,..always trying to please everyone else, and still trying. I feel Mr. Jon's pain as he is crying out to the Lord in The Letter, and I can't keep myself from sobbing.:( How I wish I could take away all the pain and hurt he's ever felt. They say time changes everything, but it also changed NOTHING. Listen to this voice, WOW! It's as if time has stood still, Mr. Jon sounds more beautiful than ever! Track 5 is a highlight for me,so beautiful, a perfect message and love letter to everyone that loves Mr. Jon. The sweet and tender way he sings this, my heart fills with love, it means so much to hear him sing this. He's our SWEET MUSIC MAN!:) Nobody sings a love song(or any song) like he does, nobody else can make me feel the things he does, he touches my soul with his beautiful songs. My Way left me completely breathless! This song has Mr. Jon's signature written all over it, a testimony. I've always loved this song from Elvis, but Mr. Jon version here surpasses all others. WOW! A PERFECT PERFORMANCE, I just feel in such awe, stunned! The dance we share with Mr. Jon is so special, not to be taken for granted. The message,the meaning, and hearing Mr. Jon sing this song so beautifully has a very profound effect. I am forever grateful, and wouldn't ever miss the chance to dance with this beautiful man. This CD is such an incredible work of art, starting the moment you lay your eyes on the strikingly gorgeous front cover, all the way through to the very last note. ♥

We Knew The Legend, We Now Love The Man
Each song has the clarity and power as if you were experiencing a personal concert. The power and range of Jon's voice cannot be matched yesterday, today, or tomorrow. The world knows The Legend. I'm honored to be one of the few who now, even in a small way, know The Man. **My special favorite is The Dance. I love it for many reasons. When this song originally came out, I wished to hear it by my favorite voice in the world. Now that I have, I only have one thing to say---with all due respect to Mr. Brooks, he should be very glad he recorded it first as Jon's version is beyond compare. I love all of Jon's CDs, but this is certainly a "must have" if you are beginning your selection.

Legendary Music From A Special Man
Mr. Jon starts out this album with a wonderful song called "The Legend And The Man". I love the legend, but the real story is always with the man. "Yesterday When I Was Young" is absolutely stunning. It's so hauntingly beautiful, and the video for it is amazing. "Sweet Music Man" is a compassionate song that Mr. Jon sings so beautifully. "500 Miles" is one of my favorite country songs that I have loved for years. "I'll Be With You Always" is a really pretty heartwarming song that reassures the listener that if you hold someone in your heart, they are always there and that relationship never fades. I discovered "Pieces Of My Life" years ago, and I always loved that song. I have felt that my life was in scattered pieces at times too, and this song has always helped. I think knowing that someone else feels that way, and hearing Mr. Jon sing about it gives me strength. "One Song Away" is a cool song that evokes memories of wanting to finish up business at hand and get on home. "The Letter" is a beautiful heart-wrenching song that Mr. Jon sings so tenderly. The story behind that song is astonishing. Doesn't everybody love "My Way" and the special meanings Mr. Jon puts into it? That song is amazing, and it has always given me courage to be myself and forge my own path. Mr. Jon sings it with such emotion and power. I love it. "The Dance" is a personal favorite that I never thought I'd hear Mr. Jon sing. I'm so glad that he did. It's a wonderful and amazing performance, and the message at the end gives me great strength and hope. I'm so glad for the dance we're on Mr. Jon. This little thing called life with all the ups and downs. Sometimes it seems that all the sadness and negative outweigh all that is good in our lives, but all it takes is one little happy moment to help a person remember that a million sad moments can't even compare to one happy moment that God has blessed us with. I sense with this album that you are sharing an immense amount of sadness and loneliness with us, but all the while showing us that there is a tremendous amount of strength that comes from that. You offer the listener hope with our own problems by sharing yours. I feel that maybe if you can make it then, heck, maybe I can make it too. Thank you Mr. Jon for sharing your wonderful music with us. They tell stories, evoke memories, conjure up emotions and for me personally, they give me such happiness and hope. I can never say thank you enough, but I will try. :) God Bless You

It is hard to live up to an image
To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, To find the best in others, To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, A garden patch or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded. This CD "The Legend and the Man" puts into perspective what it is like to be in another man's shoes. As someone once said "The image is one thing and the human being is another. It is hard to live up to an image." One can feel the very heart, soul and mind of the man that puts his all into his work. No matter a legend or a man, this man has made a world of difference in my life.

The words and Jon's amazing emotion-filled voice in each song touched my heart. Listening to the songs I felt what the man went the man went through as a legend and tears filled my eyes. I've always loved the man and these songs stirred my heart. Jon performs them in a way that made me feel the greatness of a wonderful talent. Thank you Jon for this magnificent CD. I treasure it.

OUTSTANDING! A MUST HAVE FOR EVERY FAN OF JON'S!
This excellent compilation of extra special songs is essential for every fan of Jon’s. He exudes effortless passion straight from his genuine…loving heart as he sings. You will be enthralled by the lyrics of the title song, The Legend and The Man. “The image is one thing, the man is another” True words of wisdom spoken! I LOVE “the man”, that is for certain! For some added listening pleasures, you will enjoy the delightful voices of Jon’s daughter’s as they join in with him in singing some of the songs…their beautiful voices blending so nicely together…in perfect harmony. You will enjoy all of the songs on this terrific CD! But just to name a few… When Jon sings Sweet Music Man, You may find yourself thinking (like me) for Kenny to MOVE WAYYYYYYYYYYYYY ON OVER, and let Jon through…as Jon’s version is the ABSOLUTE BEST!! That’s 2 for 2 Kenny, so move on over please!! haha! You will be mesmerized as you hear him singing I’ll Be With You Always. It is outstanding, just like all the rest of the songs on this CD. You will feel the sincerity in Jon’s beautiful voice as he sings this song. His remarkable voice has always had a very “calming” effect on me whenever I hear him sing. It’s very comforting. He is just what the doctor ordered…peace and love of the best kind  You will get goosebumps galore when you hear him singing My Way! He hits it straight out of the ballpark with that most memorable grand finale of his...as only he can do!! His powerful vocal range is truly sensational! One more mention is the very last song…The Dance! You will find yourself hanging on to every single beautiful note that Jon delivers in this song. It’s pure perfection! The message that Jon narrates to us at the end of the song is so very sweet and special. He is truly an inspiration to all of us that are Blessed to know him. I highly recommend this heartfelt CD. It’s FANTASTIC! Each and every song will captivate your heart for sure, as it displays the beauty in Jon’s most powerful..strong voice. The ABSOLUTE BEST voice I have ever heard!

The Legend And The Man
To define this CD an OUTSTANDING MASTERPIECE would still be an understatement,but I don’t think there is another English word for something higher than that.The song choices are perfect,and Jon’s extraordinary voice has achieved a peak of perfection,acquiring a depth,richness and warmth a beauty to go with its power on each single performance contained in this CD that are TOTALLY INCREDIBLE and impossible to describe,not to mention about the perfect smoothness of his voice and the passionate heartfelt delivery. EACH SONG from track#1 to #10 is PERFORMED TO PERFECTION! The studio quality sound is SUPERB,so clear,full and rich,it showcases Jon's amazing astounding singing and helps to bring out even more every detail of Jon's flawless voice.Jon’s way of communicating with his fans through his songs is totally incredible and unique,on this new amazing album he allows the listeners to take a musical journey with him on songs that obviously have a special meaning to him,from the first note of track #1 on,you’ll soon realize that this is much more than just a beautiful listening experience,you’ll be able to“feel“and experience the songs with Jon as he “lives” within the music holding you captive the entire CD.He puts his whole being into his singing and makes these beautiful songs come alive,but you need to really listen to the lyrics cause they tell a very touching story. You will feel guided by Jon’s EXTRAORDINARY voice and his intimate, heartfelt singing and after listening to the whole CD you will realize how this was truly a "Labor Of Love",I can guarantee you,it make you feel highly priviledged for having been given the honor of listening to this. I don’t think anyone can even begin to capture the magic sensitivity and greatness of the man behind these recordings and convey it into words,but you will be able to get a glimpse of this AMAZINGLY GIFTED and dedicated performer/singer,his incredible charisma and rare,precious soul. I would also like to thank Jon’s, special back up singer that sings harmony with him in some of the songs in the CD Tracks#5 #6 #9 and #10 are MAJESTICALLY PERFORMED!It’s impssible not to be moved by Jon’s beautiful,heartfel closing message. This CD is a must for everyone,real incredible music sung by the most beautiful singing voice ever!Don’t deprive yourself of the most,AMAZING,UNFORGETTABLE LISTENING EXPERIENCE! Thank you for a truly priceless gift,Jon.May God Bless Always.

I'm Speechless
I could have never imagined how these beautiful songs would touch my heart like they do. It's like the impossible dream has come true-Mr. Jon has the voice of an angel, or better yet, a man we all love and miss so deeply. My favorite songs are Yesterday When I Was Young and The Dance. I play them over and over and over lol. Thank you Mr. Jon and Dixie for all your hard work and dedication so we could once again benefit from that amazing, beautiful voice and thanks again Mr. Jon for the dance!

Phenomenal
“You can close your eyes to the things you don't want to see, but you cannot close your heart to the things you don't want to feel” If you listen this CD you will understand it. I am not sure what else to say as people have described it already a lot but there wouldn't be words enough to describe this performance and CD. Jon blew me away with this CD. The choice of the songs does fit perfectly to Jon's life and knowing Jon's life story you will consider he tells with each song individually a small part of his life and his feelings through the years. This will touch you deeply! His voice is stronger than ever and once you start listen the CD you cannot stop. Jon left with this CD many very important messages. Listen carefully as Jon left something very special. Standing ovation from me for this CD and your wonderful work. Thank you for this unforgettable dance.

HAUNTINGLY BEAUTIFUL..!!
I really don't know what I could possibly say that would do justice to this cd...I repeat myself to much in every review but it's the way I feel ,  and how can I say that every single song Jon sings isn't amazing and phenomenal when they are!!!This cd is literally haunting me but in a great way...it took my breath away and I can't get it out of my head...all of the songs are pure perfection!!!I couldn't stop the tears...I can't even review each song because I will say the same thing over and over...every single song fits Jon's life to a tee...every song is sung from his heart with the most unbelievable voice...every single song is beyond phenomenal and outstanding...A special, special treat was to hear Jon's beautiful daughter sing with him..that was amazing...just like in the "Country Cotner" cd's when they sing together...that brought me tears of happiness!!and when the cd ended...I stood there with my mouth open wondering if it was just a dream...I play all of Jon's cds every day but I must have played this cd alone literally 200 times since I first got it a week ago!!!I love it so much...you can feel Jon's heart n soul in every single song and all the pain and suffering he has gone thru...The cover is equally perfect and stunning...front, inside and back as well as what Jon wrote gave me chills..Jon has the most beautiful, glowing looks I've ever seen with the most beautiful and phenomenal voice...but it's his beautiful heart that made me love him the most..I've never met a more forgiving, kind, loving and honest man in my life...someone who cares about a stranger and has forgiven so many people who tried to hurt him...his heart is pure gold...Not sure what else I could possibly say...Track #9...Elvis did the best version of the song then...but like I said only Jon outdo himself...this is beyond incredible and phenomenal...literally my goosebumps had goosebumps, my chills had chills and I felt electricity throughout my body...then the last song and what he said at the end...speechless..it had such a great impact on me...from the very first song to very last I couldn't stop the tears...everybody should own all of Jon's priceless cd's but this truely special considering every song describes his life...I personally can't imagine myself without any of them because all of them are outstanding...Jon I love you with all my heart..and I wish you nothing but happiness...you so deserve it...your a priceless treasure and I'm proud to call you my friend!!!

A Very Special CD!
The world knew and loved the legend, the image he portrayed. But as the cover of the CD states, there is a lonely world between an image and a man. This CD gives us a glimpse of that man, and I love him even more than the legend! What a special CD this is! It is evident by the packaging, just because this CD was made special, different from all the others. Is that Mr. Jon himself on the cover? :) But inside the beautiful package, you’ll find something even more special: that beautiful, unique voice that we all love, crooning carefully selected songs which he felt in some way reflected what he felt on the inside, songs that convey the feeling of nostalgia that you get when you feel that certain events in your life have passed you by and you realize the things you took for granted. A legend has success in the world’s eyes. But a man’s success will be judged by God, and will be determined by how he treats others. Mr. Jon revealed that it was his “hope that by listening to some of the music on this CD, people will realize one of the main things they need to do is get their lives in order with God first, and then the family He gave you because no matter what, if you do those two things, you are a success whether the world knows your name” or not. Every single song on this CD, and even the inscription on the inside cover, touches my heart in so many ways it makes me happy and sad at the same time. And that beautiful voice reaches into my soul like no other voice ever has. Tears are falling with every song and the sweet farewell message at the end of the CD squeezes out the last drop and leaves me with a smile and a feeling of being so blessed to be able to get to know the man behind the legend, even if just a glimpse! In my eyes, the man outshines the legend! For the love of God shines through him and touches the lives of all who know him!

When the singer and the man are larger than the image
No wonder this cd received so many great reviews here it’s probably the masterpiece of Jon’s new career so far. DO NOT MISS IT !!!! Even if the artwork of the cd presents the image of a mystery man it does not remain a mystery any longer as Jon delivers the content of his heart and soul in each song of this prestigious cd. The quality of this cd (just like the other cd’s released recently) is highly professional. You could not say it was home recorded unless the artist said so. It seems like each song has been written by Jon himself as it sticks perfectly to his life as an international artist and his life “after”. Nostalgia and loneliness felt by the artist are in the background of each song but the purity and strength of the voice bring the message of hope, happiness and beauty as well. “Yesterday when I was young” was originally a song written for Charles Aznavour and named “Hier encore” but once you will hear Jon’s version you will forget the original version. As always Jon magnifies a song which seemed to have been chiseled for him. The song “I‘ll be with you always” is like the good bye we did not have back in 1977 a kind of an apology . We are so blessed to be the few ,now, to know that it was just an au revoir …Once again the words and the performing of the song are incredible. The jewel of this cd is “My way”. This well- known song has been sung so many time before but Jon here “sings from his guts” and I must say that it’s my favorite version EVER. You have goose bumps all over your body listening to it. The final is grand, awesome !!!! The end of the cd is so moving too. A message of hope given by Jon. You will never know how much we love you Jon and that you are essential to our life to help us to carry on. Thank so so much for sharing your love and talent with us we are so blessed ! After hearing this cd we hope for many to come !!!!!!

Mr. Jon Did it His Way!
A man becomes a "legend" because of the incredible things he has achieved in his life. In this particular case, Mr. Jon has shown us the "man" behind the legend who has chosen to truly do it all, His Way! Love this entire CD! Most favorable song is My Way....the sentiments in that song are true and can be heard in every note. We love, laugh and cry with you! Love this man!

The rediscovery of greatness
Mr. Jon’s music CDs cannot be easily accessed by everyone and is certainly different from others. The CD, being rare, is a legendary treasure. I am sure whoever listens to this CD will find who really the legend is. I am so lucky to have such precious CD and opportunity to listen to it. Whoever listens to the CD will find the value of this treasure and joy. The Mystery Train ride through which the CD takes his fans to very special place, leaves them with unforgettable memory. It is a journey of friendship, love, trust and faith. It is also a very special concert that he and his family performs with their passion. The CD is a masterpiece which leaves the listeners touched; his voice is timeless and beautiful, it has such a power to touch people. The album finishes with his life and monologue through which the legendary singer, Mr. Jon, helps us realize the true meaning of success in our life. It is a phenomenal album that reminds us of what true friend, friendship, and valuable treasure are in our life. The name of the CD is the same as the album title song, “The Legendary & The Man,” which I assume is a very special CD for both him and his fans. From the songs he selected, the traces of his hard work for every song can be witnessed. The CD is a comprehensive magnum opus that captures his soul and life as well as effort, passion, love, and talent from God. There is no doubt why his voice is continuously admired and appreciated by others. Thank you so much Mr. Jon for sharing your wonderful gift and for give us love and joy

This is such a wonderful CD by Jon. The songs weave a story, if one will pay attention. Or maybe it was just me making up a story as I listened, haha! Each song seems as if it's making a different point to the story. Jon sings each one so wonderfully; I certainly wish I'd been blessed with the ability to sing like he can! If you are thinking of buying this CD, I don't think you will regret it :)

As always I appreciate the man and the music!
Oh, He... Yes! Aн, that beautiful voice... What a voice! I love the amazing sound of that voice! Jon Cotner is one of Music's True Treasures, an outstanding singer and fantastic entertainer and this album is as good an anything he's ever done. This is one of my favorite CDs I have ever heard in my life. Jon can sing like no one else. The spirit and soul he brings to a song puts goosebumps on my arms, tears in my eyes... This album is so rich, its hard to put into words. Love the songs, the lyrics, so powerful and encouraging! I absolutely love every song on this album! Some songs like the «Yesterday When I Was Young» «I’ll Be With You Always» «The Letter» or «The Dance» brings tears to my eyes because Jon sings it with such passion and emotions that you become overwhelmed with Love. This album is a great work of art with 10 songs! This is one of Jon Cotner's best CD's, ever! It's splendid! Everyone should have it. Thank You, dear Jon, for your Music! I love you. God Bless you.

A legendary performance by the man!!!
I was sold by the first song on this album, I felt it was a life's story told in 4 minutes and 16 seconds... I was smiling and had tears at the same time,.. I believe music is supposed to reach the soul and this song touched me in a way I didn't think it ever could... The dance is one song I always end my shows with because I think we should all be proud of the dance we have had on this planet, Jon did it superbly and I felt as if he told the story as I hope I do when I performed it... Every song on this album is a win and I think every person thinking of buying it will never be disappointed he in this purchase!!! It's a bargain at twice this price.., no question, if you are a fan of music at all... You cannot go without this in your home library!!! Thank you Jon!!! Another knockout!

From the cover to the CD to Jon's powerful voice that just makes you melt with every word he sings. It really is a treasured CD. As are they all. "Yesterday" is just beautiful. You can feel Jon looking back. You are getting younger every day, with the spirit you have and still have a lot more song's in you to sing. "I'II Be With You Always". Is such a sad song. That powerful voice, you can feel every word Jon sings. The music never went,Jon is here with us always. I just have to look a round and see all the beautiful things Jon has given us.I am from wall to wall in things.The Bible study's, music Cd's with that amazing voice. Our amazing bibles. His teaching his knowledge and most of all his love. "The Dance". This time Jon's powerful voice and POWERFUL word's at the end really cut deep. I thank u Jon that you let us share in your Dance. I have not stopped. God Bless U my Friend

The Legend was Great, but the MAN IS EXCEPTIONAL!!!
This Cd is Jon's Crown Jewel!! He shares with us through his song selections a glimpse of the journey of his life and the loves that really matter in this world. Love of God, his family and the amazing life God has bestowed on him!! There is no artist on the planet who's music touches my heart and soul the way Jon's music does. His daughters sang so beautifully with their daddy which made this Cd even more special and priceless! We hear Jon's heart in every note and song he sings. The last song on this Cd brought me to tears and the message at the end tells why this man is so exceptional and such a blessing!!! I will take the man any day over the legend.....Jon thank you for all you have given, all you have done, but most of all thank you for being YOU!!!

Blown Away
Jon Cotner's cd, the Legend and The Man , the vocals on the cd was breathe taking. This cd showcases some of Jon's emotions and superb voice through out the entire cd. I think that every time I get a new cd I always say it was the best one, but this time the sound, the voice just sent goose bumps up and down my spine. The tears that were flowing on I'll Be With You Always. This song speaks to me a lot because I am going through something right now, and this is the perfect song for the situation.

The Legend & The Man
Dear Jon, I'm so glad, I received my cd's...I love them especially "The Legend and the Man" and I listen to them every day. What emotion to hear his warm and tender voice on these beautiful songs!!  I love your voice and I'm not the only one. My granddaughters Louna and Lilou confuse the voices and call Jon "jon-elvis', they love you. Thank you for all you share with us since a long time, you have given me a lot and changed a part of my life. I met nice people with you. Thank you again for all. Love and kisses. God Bless you, Brigitte

Tonight I walked to my car, started it and drove around for 1,5 hours. Why?! Because of one thing and one thing only. Alonetime with the greatest voice in our time. To drive and listen to Jons voice, words, emotions is something undescribebal. Listen to every note, every tone. Listen to the voice of a man who was born to sing, it is the greatest time of all. Every word touches my heart. You can listen to the songs over and over again and then over again. I get a warm, comforting feeling when I listen to this great cd. A feeling that cannot be described, you have to expierience it. Buy it and enjoy this masterpiece of a legend and most of all, a man. Listen to the honesty in his words, in his voice and know that you have found a treasure. Every word has a meaning and tears ran down my cheeks when I heard My way. My absolute favorite is Help me lord. I am so happy and honored to own this cd, no words can describe the feeling in my heart.

The Legend & The Man
Hello,I am writing again to let youknow i got your cd, want to tell you the day I got it in mail, i was watching the mail everyday!!! I was so anxious to receive your cd..When I opened the cd,I was shaking, just holding the cd in my hands, i opened the cd, and held it close to my chest kinda like i was hugging it, i got goose chills all over, i love this man, he is held in my heart very close..i just kept saying oh my gosh is this real?? I started listening to the first song, and i was about to cry hearing that fantastic smiling voice. I was smiling all over, this cd has the best songs on it, it makes me sooo happy, just hearing that southern voice of his, you can feel him, he is telling stories of his life in each and every song!!! It is a terrific cd, i believe each song was chosen carefully to speak his mind, and words from his heart about his own life..i am so blessed to have this cd, i really love the song The Letter, and The Dance is fantastic too, but each song touches my heart!! Thank you and God Bless You..you are so missed, and loved, my house has you in every room..you are a precious guy..please be happy, you have made a true fan smile everyday..

Legendary Cd !!
Legend and the man This cd really does live up to its title .. From the title song of the cd and then When i was young starts you on an amazing Journey through Jons life . These are more than just songs , they are part of Jons life which he brings to life through each song , every one brilliant ,and then the climax of the Cd with MY Way and then The Dance will have you in tears , i have never heard such passion in a cd before ..This is really about the life and feelings of a Legend through Jon's eyes and heart .. This cd is more than brilliant .. Its the heart and soul of a man who is telling a story .. I predict One day this cd will be One of the most important stories in music history . This is a work of art and an outstanding cd !!!!

fantastic! emotional CD
This Cd really touched me, and I can say it has been played non stop since i got it. Jon's singing voice and his spoken parts really affect you. for me the last two tracks are my favourites. I've never been into Elvis Impersonators or tribute artists,what differentiates Jon from those is that what he brings has such Authenticity and Heart. Love it!

The Legend and the Man—a perfect tale of one man’s extraordinary life
All the songs in this cd have clearly been carefully chosen to not only entertain, but to paint a story of a very uniquely creative life. They take you on a musical journey from one man’s beginnings to his now. Yesterday When I Was Young, is the perfect introduction of this musically illustrated story –working through the life change that fame brought (500 Miles and Pieces of my Life), the sorry (The Letter), the fateful and very painful decision (My Way) to the grand finale, The Dance—which is a celebration of it all. This cd is a carefully crafted masterpiece sung so sweetly from the heart from a man who has lived out every lyric.

Not enough words...
There's just no words that can express the compassion and love that comes out in these songs that Mr. Jon brings to us. You can feel his heart and soul in every cord. He's given us his heart many times over and it never gets old. He never gets old to me. I love you, Mr. Jon, with every ounce of me. That's a lot of ounces. Haha! You are the legend and the man. There's no two ways about it! I love you for who you are and for Whose you are! Keep on singing the song, Brother Jon! God Bless, Earl and Baby Ella Gracelyn

This CD is fabtastic. It is full of emotion and feelings, it is lyrical. Mr. Jon voice is deep and strong and meawhile very sweet. " Yesterday When I Was Young", "The Dance" are in my opinion pieces of pure art as are inspiring and wonderful all the other songs. This CD is a piece of art that cannot be missed. Angelo from Italy

Masterpiece!
I have many of Jon's CD's and every time I get a new one I think "this is the BEST ONE YET"...BUT this time, I mean it. I love all of Jon's music, but is CD is Jon's Masterpiece, in my opinion. This CD stirred up so many emotions in me. I listened to each word which seemed to have a special meaning. I could feel the hurt Jon has felt all his life. Each song, each note he sings on this CD is flawless. Tract 2 brought me to the verge of tears. I love all the songs, but tract 9 really stands out. When Jon sings "My Way"...well, you will just have to buy the CD to find out for yourself. Most powerful rendition of this song ever, by anyone! The Dance, so powerful and heart wrenching. This CD has been in my CD player since I got it. I've listened to it over and over and almost have all the songs memorized. I LOVE this CD!!!! Please take my word for it and buy it! And, the packaging holds some surprises too!!! I love the cover and the "photos". Thank you Jon for making this most special album for us to treasure. A true MASTERPIECE!

The Legend and the Man
The Legend and the Man....oh my goodness, I don't even have the words! Just wonderful.... WONDERFUL! I'm dumbstruck and can't even tell you how much I appreciate your work on this CD........Specifically the song "The Dance". I wept..... I wept out of both sadness and great admiration for you, because I could hear the depth of emotion in your voice, how much you meant every single word- especially when you spoke at the end. I also wept from gratitude.... thinking back over all the years I've needed and been blessed by that voice and heartfelt singing. So.... Thank you SO very much, Sweet Jon... for DANCING!! and for all you've endured because of it.
