    Puddles Dear, Your voice here reminds me of the late great Billy Eckstine, considered by many to be among the all time greatest voices.

    I don't know why but I used to listen to "easy listening" radio stations when they had more of them in the late 70's and 80's.Β  It was something about good string sections and just nice clean melodies I really liked.

    Again a wonderful piece of amazing vocal styling. I gotta give some notes however so I hope this doesn't bring too many too far down. I certainly missed the live accompaniment of PMJ pianist/arranger Scott Bradlee,. I had the feeling that the recorded piano threw Puddles timing off. There are few things as boring as watching a performer try to match his timing to a pre-recorded tape. As with no live piano there was no sense of musical dialogue. The piano was too dominant in the mix as well IMHO. Also I really hate the two cameras they have started using. I feel it destroys his focus. And finally the inexplicable smoke machine was really distracting. Liked the cough at the end though.
