Christine's cool classic conquers
Review written by John Fitzgerald, September 6th, 2004

"Can't help falling in love" of course is the beautiful seed that grew into the Mac's successful 1987 comeback "Tango in the night" and you can get a feel of that album's production feel here with Christine giving us what must be considered one of the best performances of the Elvis classic ever recorded if not the best. The rest is an odd but somewhat likable collection of Soul artist hosting us to some treats like Smokey Robinson's "Wishful thinking", Burston & Littlejohn's "Moving so close" & "The Temptations' "A fine mess". The rockers by Billy Vera ("Slow down") & Los Lobos ("I'm gonna be a wheel someday") are a bit out of step on here as are the Mary Jane Girls attempting a faithful rendition of the Frankie Valli smash "Walk like a man" and Henry Mancini's "Stan & Ollie". There's no doubting Mancini has had some classic scores over the years but this is not a good representation of that. Anyone who's seen Laurel & Hardy comedy reels can guess what this sounds like. Well, hey this is got to be recommended for Christine's landmark document anyways.
