    I know where you guys are coming from, especially in terms of the arrangements, but no way has GP got a suitable voice for opera - he doesn't have the range, for starters, and it's totally not his style.

    What I like is the richness and 'honeyed' tones of his voice, and the 'humanity' and emotion he injects into his vocal delivery, which I agree suits some material better than others. For me, he's still, without question, one of the great voices of the modern era.

    Yes, that sums up GP very well. I think he would be better perhaps singing Blues material. His voice is similar to that of the late Mississsippi John Hurt; not so much in the richness of tone, but in the sweetness and humanity of delivery.

    I went to the Cinema last night with my lovely wife to see the Incredible New Aretha Franklin Documentary AMAZING GRACE

    I can only say RUN do not Walk to see this film.
    It's obviously an art-house film and on for a week or so maximum.
    So sleep and you will miss it....

    Without doubt he BEST music documentary I've seen. NO talking heads or commentary, just an uncut view into 2 live Gospel performances by The Queen herself with James Cleveland and the Southern California Community Choir.

    An amazing treat into this world. Not a dry eye in the house when the lights came up!!
    An utter joys experience.

    Here is the recording from those 2 evenings of pure magic.

    Sounds great, Adam. Is it on national release, or only in selected cinemas?

    Right now, enjoying this classic, as I prepare lunch 'al fresco':
