Rod Stewart It Had To Be You: The Great American Songbook on Numbered Limited Edition K2 HD Mastering CD
Compatible With All CD Players
Rod Stewart spent the first decade of the new century cutting his own path through the Great American Songbook, realizing a long-held ambition to put perhaps popular music’s least boundary-hindered voice to the classic ballads and swing tunes he heard glowing from the radiogram in his childhood London home. At an age when most of his peers were just happy to be hanging on in there, Stewart sold more records than in any other decade of his career.
2002's It Had To Be You is the first of five volumes Stewart has released to date from the Great American Songbook. The album is a virtual treasure chest of musical gems arranged and recorded for a wide-ranging, multi-generational audience. And what's so special is to have a rock 'n' roll icon stepping into this musical terrain with such a command and natural feel for the material.
Rod's voice finds itself wrapped around a never before assemblage of songs which include the 1930's standard "These Foolish Things" which features a solo by saxophonist Dave Koz; the 1924 classic "It Had to Be You" featuring a solo by Michael Brecker, the 1938 classic "You Go To My Head"; "They Can't Take That Away From Me" written by George and Ira Gershwin in 1938; 1936's "The Way You Look Tonight" written by Jerome Kern and Dorothy Fields; the 1930's love song "The Very Thought of You" as well as "For All We Know," "Where or When," "Moonglow," "Everytime We Say Goodbye" and much more.
