Wunderbare Zusammenstellung seiner Hits von 1974 - 1985.

Ich liebe seine Songs

Die großen Erfolge der ersten 20 Jahre seiner einzigartigen Karriere. Dieser Sampler enthällt nicht einen schwachen Song und ist für Interessierte die beste Gelegenheit um diesen fantastischen Musiker einmal kennzulernen.

Sein Name bürgt für - mittlerweile 35 Jahre - gute, sehr gute Musik! Dass er mal Boxer war, man mag's kaum glauben..

Sehr gut!
******
Diese Zusammenstellung aus der ersten Hälfte seiner Karriere zeigt Songwriting auf höchstem Niveau - schafft er es doch, Gefühle/Stimmungen/Ansichten auf sein Klavierspiel zu übertragen und mit Melodien zu verfeinern, die zeitlos und damit in jedem Jahrzehnt gültig sind. Meine Lieblinge sind : NEW YORK STATE OF MINE, MY LIFE, JUST THE WAY YOU ARE und UPTOWN GIRL.
******
WAS für ein tolles Album!!!
******
das Album für die einsame Insel
