ALBUM DETAIL

Definition of Love

Definition of Love

The seemingly ageless Hump bills this as his 35th anniversary album, but that fudges the numbers just a bit. In fact, it celebrates the year the former Arnold Layne Dorsey segued spectacularly from rock & roll also-ran to romantic balladeer with his massive hit cover of "Release Me," the record that broke the Beatles' own record streak of 12 No. 1 singles in their native England. The Big E celebrates that moment here with a good-natured, if typically laconic cover of "Penny Lane," the song his own budding success stalled at No. 2. While the remainder includes other standards and favorites from his live act (including "Volare," "This Guy's in Love with You," "Brazil," "If"), the veteran crooner invests himself most fully in the originals (highlighted by the title track and "How Slow We Go," a song cowritten by his daughter Louise) and newer material. The Hump's rock roots are revisited on "Nothing a Little Love Won't Cure," one of four tracks livened by the presence of his longtime touring band in the studio. The singer also puts his distinctive vocal stamp on Diane Warren's "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing," Robbie Williams's "Angel," and "If Tomorrow Never Comes" by Garth Brooks. Kitsch king to some, romantic balladeer extraordinaire to others, Humperdinck delivers it all on this emblematic contemporary collection. --Jerry McCulley

REVIEWS

Engelbert is probably, without a doubt, the most inspiring singer over the last 35 years and he does it again with his latest CD "Definition of Love." From this opening track, to the last track, "She", Engelbert shows once again his ability to take a song and make it become alive. "Angels" is another song that moves you to understand the power of this entertainer. Yes, a true winner here in this CD. An outstanding "5 STARS"!!


Indeed, This is superb album, really Engelbert at His Very Best. WAW!!! After al these years, he's still simply the best. But don't miss his Gospel album; It's also a fantastic album. He's touring the UK and Belgium(Antwerp 23 th June) in 2004. I'm longing to see him again in concert. That will be the fourth time. He's the best entertainer of the whole world. Engelbert The Best!

"When I listen to this CD it brings back memories of a show you did in Laughlin at an outdoor theatre on the Colorado River. Audience mainly couples mid to older. As the music began I noticed men putting their arms around their wives shoulders, squezzing them a bit. Very romantic! I also love your version of SHE and IF. Thank You Engelbert Billie "

"Another number one CD. If Tomorrow Never Comes beautidul. Also If and She. They are all great. Those are my favorites. Once in Laughlin he sang If Tomorrow Never Comes and half way through the song a lot of husbands were squeezing their wives shoulders. Brought tears to my eyes. Thanks Engelbert Love ya Billie"
