New Buble - Already?
Hot on the heels of his Crazy Love album (out October '09), Michael Buble just released another collection; an EP called Special Delivery.
With his "Haven't Met You Yet" from Crazy Love still riding high on the charts, this new EP is a collection of cast-offs - songs that didn't make the cut on other albums. A savvy piece of marketing, 'just in time for Valentine's Day.'
Special Delivery is solid. A stand-out track, perfect for romantic dinner music is "Dream a Little Dream of Me" (a close second to my other favorite version by Mama Cass). Some great standards he has missed thus far that debut here are "I'm Beginning to See the Light" and "Orange Colored Sky." Also included for the first time is a studio recording of "Mack the Knife" (previously only available from his live concert CD). If you're a huge fan, the only duplicate you might end up with is "These Foolish Things" which was released a few years ago only to Hallmark stores.
The Crazy Love album didn't impress me much, but Special Delivery...well, you can write the rest.
