REVIEWS
Average points: 3.8 (Reviews: 10)
****
Gute und starke # 1 in GB im Dezember 1961 für den Mann aus Liverpool.
**
Tolle Stimme, klingt fast wie ein früher Tom Jones, leider ist der Song schwach, keine vernünftige Melodie.
****
Mir gefällt die Komposition, ja und der Mann konnte singen, der Vergleich mit Tom Jones liegt nahe.
****
Guter Kraftvoller Song aus dem Jahr 1961. Das war seine zweite #1
****
-- gut --
****
klingt auch nach Engelbert Humperdinck..jedenfalls 2:10 Minuten die nicht weiter stören..
****
diese Paukenschläge (das Getrommel) hören sich ziemlich majestätisch an, auch das Klassik-angehauchte Outro fügt sich dem an - in Ordnung - 4*...damit 1962 auf #5 in Norwegen gewesen...
****
STIMMT - klingt echt wie Tom Jones - aber das macht's nicht schlechter... :-)
****
... das damals übliche britische 'weiße' Cover eines amerikanischen 'schwarzen' Originals ... gut gesungen ist es ...
****
tolles relaxtes Bläserthema, den Gesang und das restliche Arrangement finde ich eher gewöhnungsbedürftig...
