Editorial Reviews

Product Description

2008 collection from the Canadian songbird featuring greatest re-recorded versions of her greatest songs, performed as duets with some of the world's greatest female voices including Nelly Furtado, Martina McBride, Olivia Newton-John, Emmylou Harris, Celine Dion, Amy Grant, Shania Twain and more. 17 tracks.

Amazon.com

There's a feeling you get when you put on an Anne Murray record, and--apologies in advance to all you anti-sentimentalists--it's best summarized by the vocal legend herself in the classic tune "I Just Fall in Love Again." You can't help yourself; you fall in love. Those who've been listening along swollen-heartedly since the 1970s know the feeling well, and those who are about to discover Murray via this duets album and its handful of younger-skewing songs--the Nelly Furtado team-up on "Daydream Believer" especially--are going to have a hard time not submitting. It's the tenderness that hooks you: Murray's deep, confident voice manages to be maternal without being claustrophobic, an effect magnified here by expert vocal partners like Carole King, Emmylou Harris, and Olivia Newton John. The few left-field choices--Indigo Girls, k.d. lang, a ghostly appearance by Dusty Springfield--aren't hard-left enough to muck up the mood. And the song selection doesn't strike a false note either: "Cotton Jenny" sounds as right on an Anne Murray CD as "You Needed Me." Which means that if you have a soft spot for Murray at all, even one that's not quite as cushy as it used to be, you should prepare to be sucked in. It happens every time, as the song goes. --Tammy La Gorce

I've always had a soft spot in my heart for Anne Murray. Her voice is so warm and comforting. I've always loved the intelligence, independence, and strength she conveys even (especially?) when the songs are about heartbreak and loneliness. On this new CD, her duet partners express their respect and admiration for Anne through their excellent performances (with one exception) as well as their quotes in the liner notes (a couple of the artists are not quoted).

No two reviews will have the same favorite, and mine is no doubt somewhat subjective: I am thrilled to hear my former Emory University schoolmates--Indigo Girls!--sing with Anne on "A Little Good News." I imagine this will be the first time many Anne fans will have heard the wondrous harmonies of Amy Ray and Emily Saliers, and I strongly recommend their entire catalog. Fans of the song will notice that Diane Sawyer has replaced Bryant Gumbel in the lyrics, and that Ireland has been replaced by Gaza. Sadly, this song will probably be just as timely in another (damn has it been) 25 years as it was in 1983 and is today.

Another personal favorite of mine has always been "Time Don't Run Out on Me". While I'm thrilled Carole King is on board to sing this with Anne (Ms. King co-wrote it with ex-husband Gerry Goffin), I wish the ladies hadn't slowed the tempo down for their version. The original kinda rocked! I still can't believe it didn't make the pop chart back in the day. (Let it go, Jeff. Just let go of it already.)

All the performances are beautiful. I don't think I've ever heard k.d. lang turn in a performance that isn't flawless. No exception here ("A Love Song"). Shania Twain does a great job with Ms. Murray on the immortal "You Needed Me.

I have been an Anne Murray fan all my life. I grew up listening to her music. I know most of the songs on here but not all of them. My favorite track is "You Needed Me". Anne and Shania Twain sing so well together. I also love her duet with KD Lang. They harmonize great so well on "A Little Love Song". Amother gem is the duet with the late great Dusty Springfield. "I Just Fall In Love Again" is a classic love song. "Snowbird" is a track that makes me feel happy. Sarah Brightman has such a pretty voice. Other tracks that stand out here are "Danny's Song" with Martina McBride and "Another Pot O' Tea" with Emmylou Harris. I never heard of the singer Isabelle Boulay, but she sings beautifully with Anne on the French song "Si Je Te Revois". The piano playing is lovely on this track. I have never heard the song "You Won't See Me", but it is very upbeat. I like the guitar playing here. I love the music of Anne Murray.

This album was released in Canada in November, 2007. It's been selling quite well here. 'Croonin' has been my favorite Murray album since it's release, but this one has knocked it down a notch. I'm not sure who choses duet partners (if it's the artist or the label) but regardless, they've made a great choice here from the late Dusty Springfield to Shania Twain to Martina McBride etc etc. The greatest contrast is 'You Needed Me' with Shania. I believe this is Anne's 35th album and it's truly a great one. Some nice one on one liner notes with k d lang conspicuously absent. This disc sounds better every time you listen to it. Enjoy!

I just adore Anne Murray. There is something about her that is so welcoming and inviting and familiar. It's like she's a member of the family or an old friend. I grew up listening to her as a very small child. My mom and dad often played her records and 8-tracks. All these songs on Anne's new CD, "Duets: Friends & Legends" are so special and perhaps even motivational. Anne's voice is so strong and harmonious on each of the tracks. I can't say that it's better than the originals, I'd have to say that it's certainly a tossup! My favorite song is "Danny's Song." That has to be one of Anne's most recognized and celebrated hits because it's so fundamental and universal in a way. The lyrics could really apply to just about anyone. And the new version on this CD with Martina McBride is absolutely stunning. I love how Anne is able to mix both the old and the new on "Duets" and come up with a contemporary and creative work of art. Some of my other favorite songs on this CD include: "Snowbird" (one of Anne's biggest country-crossover hits,) "Daydream Believer" (sounds so perfect with Nelly Furtado!) and "You Needed Me" (sung with another country-crossover star, Shania Twain.) I have so much respect for Anne because she is such a brilliant artist with so much talent and she truly is a very, very beautiful person. Who do I recommend this CD to? Anyone with a heart. Or to anyone that's feeling down because no matter how you feel Anne Murray can lift your spirits. "Duets" will always put a smile on your face!

Beware: This will be long, but Anne Murray's been away for quite a while, and she's created a masterpiece that deserves to be properly observed and admired - track by brilliant track (all 17 of them). Or, you could just take the fast answer that it's FANTASTIC, and you should absolutely get this CD pronto. Now, where was I?

What an amazing, inspired return Anne Murray has created with her new CD, Anne Murray Duets: Friends & Legends. Anne has been away from the limelight for a good number of years now, but in the U.S. alone, for the week ending February 2, 2008, this CD was the second-highest debuting album on Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart (coming in at #42), along with debuting at #8 on the Top Country Albums chart and at #3 on the Top Internet Albums chart. "Duets" is already her highest-charting U.S. album since 1999.

She's taken a cue from Barbra Streisand, Tony Bennett, and Reba McEntire in recording a "duets" album (although Reba's CD was released only a couple of months earlier than Anne's) - live, in the same studio with her partner(s) - in this case, either in Toronto, Nashville, or L.A. Anne has joined with a group of 23 very diverse women to create 17 superb and lovely tracks, revisiting many of her biggest hits and also some of the songs she's recorded over the years that were special to her fellow Canadians.

The liner notes in this CD are fascinating and full of intriguing information. In addition to interesting facts, in most cases both artists offer impressions of their experiences recording the track or a special significance the song may have had on them. These are some of the finest liner notes I've seen in a CD in years.
