Every now and again, but much more infrequently than is generally assumed, there appears on the showbusiness horizon a new and undoubted star. That overworked word is used for many mediocre talents but very few truly deserve the acclaim – one such is most definately Robert Young. He must belong to the enviable section of mortals “whom the gods love” for ha has that rare combination of great talent, handsome features and a warm exciting personality.
When CSB Records asked me to produce this LP I had the usual qualms all producers have the working with an artist for the first time, but I need not have worried. Robert is superb professional and a delight to work with – the sessions were fun and even the orchestra, usually blase about whoever they work with, were overwhelmed by Robert’s tremendous vocal power.
I know of no other voice in the world as capable of the range and warmth and also the sincerity of interpretation Robert introduces into every song.
We have deliberately chosen all love songs for this album and have included old favorites and modern standards plus a handful of new songs, including the title song that Robert first introduced as a “single”. One of the titles “My Love For You” was unanimously voted into first place when Robert sung it as the British entry in 1972 Yugoslavian Song Festival.
I know Robert Young would wish me to pay tribute to the three superb arrangers we worked with – Johnny Douglas, Nick Ingman and Tony Osborne.
This LP is one of the most exciting experience of my recording career – Robert Young will most definately become an international star and I am privileged to have produced one of his first albums.
