Jack Jones - Nobody Does It Better (1979)


Polydor - 2383 547
1. The Love Boat
2. Evergreen
3. Silver Lady
4. Nobody Does It Better
5. Quiet Please, There's A Lady On Stage
6. Wives And Lovers
7. I Could Have Been A Sailor
8. Just The Way You Are
9. My Eyes Adored You
10. Ready To Take A Chance Again
This is one of my most-listened-to vinyl albums of the last few weeks, as it catches lounge crooner Jack Jones brilliant in a latter-seventies disco-pop moment in time, in which era-motifs of "The Love Boat" are suitably balanced by a splendid six-minute disco version of the classic Bacharach/David hit "Wives And Lovers" (which Jack himself made famous years earlier). Granted, this album is not for everyone's taste - but it appeals to me a great deal!

Love this one too!

You know my mother saw his father (Allan Jones)in concert many years ago when she was little.

He also appeared in the original film named Showboat with Irene Carr if my memory serves me correctly.

I would be interested in what you use to get these vinyl albums sounding so good, and also being able to insert the album cover in the rip like you do when playing in Windows Media Player.

Just a really great sounding rip. Certainly appreciate the time, care & effort you put into this. I know how much work it is because I digitize my LPs also. Love Jack Jones and this one is very nice. I always liked the song "Ready To Take A Chance Again" and his version is pretty good. Thank you for the music & a nice blog with some more great LPs coming up...hope, hope.
