Robert Goulet is one of those quality singers with a straight ahead, no nonsense vocal style that commands attention. Add the ingredients of top notch songs, tastefully programmed to fit many moods, impressive orchestral backings, and you have a shining example of the art of popular song. That is precisely what is on display in this excellent coupling of two of Robert’s Columbia albums. A Goulet collection will guarantee that you hear every word of every song such is the clarity and precision of his diction and phrasing. The voice is strong, powerful and confident but also sensitive to the lyrics whatever the mood. Not surprisingly, given his many Broadway show appearances, Robert favours melodies from the musical theatre while also regularly embracing the great standards from the pens of leading popular songwriters. In this highly tuneful and melodic treasury of good songs, Goulet has the accompanying services of two of America’s most distinguished arrangers and conductors.
