    This is from my favorite Streisand album and is proof positive she can be just as affecting when she's soft.

    First one that came to mind is the album "Nilsson sings Newman", just Harry singing and Randy Newman playing piano (except for a couple of spots), yet it's so creatively done that it never gets repetitive

    Harry Nilsson - Yellow Man

    Ray Charles - "Someday Baby"

    Recorded at a rehearsal session on 10th May 1953 (not released until 1961)



    The song's history is a little convoluted: Worried Life Blues - Wikipedia

    Once again proving that Bruce Johnston writes the songs that the whole world sings, LOL. I have always wondered if Bruce might have had more success for himself as a songwriter, if he hadn't spent the better part of his career, in a band that already had too many great songwriters already and one of which, who has been spoken of often in this forum, as a genius?

    I love the "songs" of Jimmy Webb, but until this album, I could never get into hearing him do them himself. Producer Fred Molin finally found a way on this album, to have Jimmy sing his songs like we all know them, rather than the somewhat odd versions that he did originally, on his earlier REPRISE and ASYLUM albums. I own all of those albums on LP, but on those albums I feel that Jimmy took too many liberties with his own melodies and in the end for me, he lost the "feeling and depth", that folks like Art Garfunkel, Glen Campbell and his producer Al De Lory, so perfectly brought to them.

    Terrible fidelity but Nina can communicate through anything. The album version on Baltimore is beautiful too but not solo piano.

    This is the demo of Elton's "Your Song" and while I realize that the finished hit version was also very sparse, but this is just Reg and his piano ...

    Clearly better when sung by Karen Carpenter, but even though the sound quality is for crap, this is a unique piano only cover of The Carpenters "I Need To Be In Love", by Richard. This song really is a great example of a very catchy melody meeting meaningful lyrics.

    Rod Stewart made this song a hit, but I like this version by the guy who wrote it, Marc Jordan ...

    My favorite is almost any of the albums Andy Bey did in this format.
