"Warm Your Heart is Absolutely Stunning, Musically and Sonically! This album is a Phenomenal Demo Disc
as well and one that you can enjoy listening to over and over." - Bob Bantz/President Elusive Disc
This awesome collection by Aaron Neville combines original songs and some classics. Produced by Linda Ronstadt and George Massengill, it offers lush, rich sounds which really do Warm Your Heart. Neville's voice is at its best and several songs include duet vocals with Linda Ronstadt or Rita Coolidge. Ry Cooder also plays guitar on several tracks.
The 1991 album features Neville's cover of "Everybody Plays the Fool" by J.R. Bailey, Rudy Clark and Ken Williams which was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1973 for Best R&B Song. Neville's version hit the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart reaching #8.
"A big multi-track production with Neville backed variously by The Grace Episcopal Choir, The Skywalker Symphony Orchestra and a host of stars including Linda Ronstadt, Rita Coolidge, Bob Seger, Ry Cooder and Dr. John ...with the awesome sound on this record, this is a big winner. Originally mastered by Bernie Grundman for A&M, the improvements in Grundman's mastering facilities over the last 20 years shine through on this two LP 45 RPM reissue." - Dennis Davis, HiFi+ Magaine, 10/10 Recording, 9/10 Music
"The production yields a great deal of eye and ear candy (eye in the sense that it's all laid out with surgical precision on a wide, deep and ultra-dynamic soundstage) but it's Neville's vocals that produce most of the fireworks. His voice was then peaking with suppleness and firm control, the trademarked warble/yodel used sparingly. The vocal recording is magnificent like everything else placed before the microphones... There's not a weak track on this album." - Michael Fremer, www.analogplanet.com, Music 10/11, Sound 10/11!
"Bernie Grunman mastered this A&M release when it was first issued and he does the honors here at 45rpm from the original analog master tapes... "Tip on" gatefold packaging adds luster... A highly recommended demo disc... I am certain you will not be disappointed." - Michael Fremer, www.analogplanet.com, Music 10/11, Sound 10/11!
"The musical arrangements on Warm Your Heart are layered with orchestral instrumentation and dense vocal mixes. ORG has found the perfect technical vehicle for this polished auditory conversion in audiophile 45 rpm vinyl. Neville's stylized vocals and upper-register range are rendered with superb clarity and suppleness. Choir and orchestra do not overpower musicians... they blend fluently." - Robbie Gerson, www.audaud.com, 5.5 Stars!
