Matt Monro - The Ultimate Matt Monro (2005) Retail CD
This is a hugely rewarding time for Matt Monro fans all over the world. To commemorate the 20th anniversary of his passing, his family has played a major role in the release of this album as well as the upcoming DVD set "An Evening With Matt Monro," which includes the only known (and newly-discovered) filmed concert from his entire career. Matt was the greatest pop singer of the last century, and if that sounds like fawning hyperbole, maybe it will at least entice you to have a listen to this album, a compendium of his top hits with other notable tracks included to personalize the collection amore… bit. The centerpiece is a live rendition of "One Voice," the Barry Manilow number that Matt performed regularly in his final years (but never recorded). As always, Matt makes the song his own, keeping you interested in the song's repetitive lyric through varying interpretations and turning a sing-song tune into an anthem. Not coincidentally, "One Voice" showcases the extraordinary power and range of Matt's voice. Engineered from a TV program, it is his only "live" recording ever released, and may represent a newly-determined resource for future live tracks, Matt never having recorded a live album. The success of this album, which had reached into the Top 25 at the time of this writing, may propel EMI to release more cleverly-conceived compilations like it. My bigger hope, being an American, is that their U.S. division will perk up and get Matt back into stores over here, giving him a leading presence in our ongoing singers-and-standards boom. This chart success, 20 years after he left us, shows that he has passed the "timelessness" test and has proven his appeal to new and future generations.
