Without a doubt this is the best of the five Great American Songbook releases. It get's better and better with each play and the song selection is perfect. Richard Perry's production is so great the songs just take you away. Get the 2 cd deluxe edition. It has six amazing bonus tracks for a total of 18 songs. This one will be in my cd player for some time. It's a true
classic that everyone should hear. Don't miss it!

Spent the weekend with this album and it put me in the best of moods! Love this album! Every time I listen to it, it lifts me up again and again. My Mom and Dad love it and I'm taking it back to college with me tomorrow. Thank you Rod, You're timeless.

I've listened to all Rod Stewart's Great American Song Book CDs and this is by far the best, in terms of song selection and music production.

I have been listening to Rod's new album over and over again since I got it only a few days ago. It is simply wonderful. Rod Stewart has been someone I have adored for a long time and I always see him in concert when I can because he is a great singer and performer and puts on an extraordinary show. I have probably been to at least eight concerts in the last ten years and Rod never disappoints. Same for this album. It is wonderful. I cant imagine anyone not loving it. When Rod sings, "My Foolish Heart", it makes me cry it is so good. All the songs are the classics that I love so much and Rod sings them to perfection. "Moon River" is another favorite of mine and Rod sings it brilliantly. I dont understand anyone talking bout Rod's lifestyle in Beverly Hills. Who cares where he lives. I just care about the music and his singing and phrasing and style. I dont agree that he has come far from his roots. Just listen to him sing. It is all there and more. I am not alone in feeling this way. I played the album for a group of my friends last night and they all adored it and said they were going to buy it. It is the type of romantic music that both singles and married couples adore. Rod, please don't stop recording these types of songs. You are the greatest and your new album, FLY ME TO THE MOON, sends me to the moon, and beyond.

there is no one singing today that has the charm and just plain sex appeal that Rod Stewart has ... especially his standards... this is the best ever even though I've loved them all.

and he's so adorable too!

This album is terrific! Rod never sounded so good! He hits every note flawlessly, is vocally in command yet with his unique style and playfully sensitivity. Every track is great. In fact, if you can find a Deluxe Edition, there are six additional tracks offered on it! And those are as good, or perhaps better than the main songs chosen for the album. Love the arrangements, the orchestration, and Rod! This album is such a winner. Just listening makes one smile! Sal

Excellent album. I listened to it all weekend while grooming my dogs and once finished, I got up and danced all afternoon to the songs on this amazing album. Just loved "On the Sunny Side of the Street".

The history of The Great American Songbook series is as great as the music. Many know Rod's family years singing around the piano with his Dad and others as a child, learning the "right" way to sing these standards. And that meant the full song with introductory lyrics, as the songwriter intended the full story to be sung. J Records, a small time studio took on the task of helping recreate this Big Band music when Rod's Pop label refused to take a chance. Wow are they sorry? You betcha. Rod still turns out pop music but the latest list of tunes, well, how can I say it but "It's wonderful! Marvellous"! And worth a "million" to have in any record collection.

Thanks Rod,for bringing a new "twist" to old classics. I received the CD and bonus Cd and haven't stopped listening to them. His voice is so unique that he makes these classics sound brand new. Absolutely love Moon River version and "It's a Wonderful World" This is by far my favorite American Songbook Cd. This is the type of music everyone should be producing. A hundred years from now my great-great-great grandchildren will still be blown away with this music. Keep'em coming Rod Stewart. You are absolutely the best singer of today. I saw him perform some of these songs on a national shopping network and fell in love with him all over again.

Just got thru listening to Fly Me To The Moon, THE GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK Volume 5. Rod has done it again! This is by far the best of all The Great American Songbooks. Rod voice and crisma has made these songbook songs his own. Rod and his management team done a superb job in picking out the songs on this CD. Volume 5 would make perfect Christmas presents, especially the Deluxe Edition as it has an extra CD with six more tracks. And if you don't have Volume 1-4, I highly recommend getting them too to complete your collection. As a bonus, the CD case and insert has some great photos (eye candy) of Rod!

Looking forward to seeing Rod at Caesar's Palace in November and looking forward to Rod's upcoming tour in 2011!

Congratulations again Rod on a job well done!
