By Michael Butts HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on June 29, 2012
Format: Audio CD
This K-Tel combo of 80's troubadors Johnson and Bishop offers five of the artists biggest hits. Unfortunately, Johnson's are pulled from an "unplugged" album and are not the radio versions. While performed well, they aren't the popular versions listeners are expecting. Good songs but K-Tel should've given us the original renditions.
Bishop's tracks, however, are the familiar versions and spotlight his distinctive voice and creative songwriting. Only IT MIGHT BE YOU from "Tootsie" is not a Bishop composition, but Marilyn and Alan Bergman's song is one of Bishop's finest recordings. Another outstanding offering is SEPARATE LIVES, a song from "White Nights" and a smash hit for Phil Collins and Marilyn Martin. ON AND ON shows us Bishop's humorous side, an infectious tropical cocktail. SAVE IT FOR A RAINY DAY and EVERYBODY NEEDS LOVE are exuberant up-beat pop ditties.
Overall, Bishop comes out the winner over a disappointing Johnson representation.

these back to back series always get me. the sound is never great. they are of artists who only had enough hits to fit on one cd for the two artists but when you listen closely if you remember the songs they are usually complete later remakes by the artists. at least the michael johnson part is. very very disappointing. i love his original take on ALMOST LIKE BEING IN LOVE. now the stephen bishop songs do sound like the originals so i'm glad to have this for SAVE IT FOR A RAINY DAY and ON AND ON so i guess it was worth the very cheap price just for those.

This CD is not a song of re-recordings. With Michael Johnson, these are the originals from his Then & Now CD which was recorded in 1997.
