I've listened to this CD many times and enjoy it more each time.

Ms. Wilson has a very nice voice and the repertoire of songs she selected were served well by her vocal range.

Ok.

Is this a vanity project? Yes.

Would Ms. Wilson had gotten a Decca recording if she wasn't Rita Wilson and Mrs. Tom Hanks? No.

Is this a great album. No.

What it is is very smooth and very enjoyable which I certainly cannot say about 90% of the tripe that passes for pop music today.

I think what the recording is really suffering from for me is the Ms. Wilson is doing some of my all-time favorite songs. The result is I'm mentally comparing her version to Linda Ronstadt, Carole King, Dave Loggins and others who over the years are seared into my brain.

What it is not suffering from is sucking.

She can sing well enough. It reminds me of a friend with a very nice voice who was able to get some of music's great studio musicians and writers to help them out with a recording.

I really like this recording and would recommend it to anyone who wants some nice easy music with a little edge thrown in here and there. As a matter of fact I think the record would be a lot better if there was a little more rawness to it.

I liked a lot of the songs and while I was listening to the recording on iTunes gave every song a 3 or 4 star rating except ironically the one song not included except as an Amazon add on "Prisoner In Disguise". It got 5 stars.

This is one of my favorite Linda Ronstadt/J.D. Souther songs. I think Ms. Wilson did a haunting and noteworthy version. I loved this cut.

Buy it.

Long a star of screen and stage, the latter being a showcase for her vocal talents, Rita Wilson launched a music career in 2012 with "AM/FM", a collection of pop classics from the '60s and '70s.
The concept is clever: half the songs are tunes familiar from heavy rotation on AM stations, half are songs by singer/songwriters who would have been heard on FM stations.
The record doesn't quite cleave neatly in two -- some AM tunes are paired up -- but the conceit does give AM/FM thematic range even when the album is pitched firmly in the middle of the road.
All the arrangements are sweet and intimate -- even when the tempo picks up, as it does on "You Were on My Mind", no sweat is broken -- and nothing is distracting from Wilson's voice, which perhaps is good as she's not a forceful singer.
She takes thing easy, a suitable choice for an album whose primary purpose is sepia-toned nostalgia.
Surely this will be appealing for fellow Baby Boomers looking back fondly on the golden age of rock & roll radio, but the question remains, if you're pining for the past wouldn't it just be better to put on the original hits?
S. T. Erlewine

Favourite tracks: "All I Have To Do Is Dream", "Come See About Me", "Angel Of The Morning", and "Wichita Limeman".

Rita can rock. Saw her perform her debut album AM/FM at the Geffen Playhouse Actors Fund benefit in Westwood last night. Spent a delightful day today with her renditions of, "Angel of the Morning", "Love Has No Pride", "Never My Love" and her tribute for David Geffen, "I Can't Make You Love Me" running through my head. Rita Wilson really is a triple threat performer - she can act, dance and sing. Best evening out in a very long time. If you have a chance to see her perform - don't miss it. Yes, she married Tom Hanks, and maybe that proves he can be lucky and good. Don't underestimate her chops - listen to the samples and decide for yourself.

Beautiful
Maybe it's not great "art" but neither is Britney etc, and this is far more enjoyable than today's pop stars.
I love it. It's soothing. Gentle, beautiful.

I've always loved Rita Wilson and bought this CD just out of curiosity mainly. I was shocked when I heard how beautiful her voice is. It's just as clear as a bell and so pretty. I would say she sounds kind of like a cross between Linda Ronstadt and Sheryl Crow. The songs are all songs I remember from my jr. high and high school years, so I'm not sure if this will appeal to some of the younger listeners (or men, for that matter), but if you are a woman who grew up in the 60's and 70's and loved the kind of mellow rock type songs, you are sure to love this.

I really enjoy listening to songs of my youth with a different mix. This is very nicely done by Rita Wilson.

I first read about AM/FM in Rolling Stone and they gave it good reviews. I had not heard of Rita Wilson recording anything but I checked it out on Amazon and was impressed with the selection she chose. If your in to a bit of nostalgia this is a real treat. In my opinion Rita nailed all of the songs. She has such a sweet voice and I'm sure all of the original artists would be pleased with her rendition of the songs. My criteria for judging an album is how much I listen to it, I think Iv'e about worn these MP3's out. I'm not sure why she hasn't recorded before now ? Sign me up for any new albums she releases!
