Took me a minute to realize that these weren't vintage recordings. His voice sounds so good, almost perfect, and the instrumentation and production are exquisitely done. Superb

Late reinterpretation of his main classics. His mature voice is deep & soulfull. A great collection of tunes. Vinyl sound sounds great.
