Amy Winehouse was a great singer, way beyond our era, and even beyond her lifetime. In this posthumous album is a compilation from the producers Mark Romson, Salaam Remi and the family of Amy, to do this album, they had to listen hours and hours of Amy’s voice. Released in 2011, this album had to compete with The King of Limbs from Radiohead, 21 from Adele, El Camino from The Black Keys and even The Beach Boys with their Smile Sessions. Amy gives us in this album the best in RnB, Blues and Pop, this album will make you miss her because her voice and music style will never be be equaled. Back to Black and also special editions of previous songs. This album reached the No. 1 in the UK albums charts on 2011. Our day will come, Between the Cheats and Will you still love me tomorrow? takes us back to the first album of Amy inspired by the music from the 50’s again. Pure touching R&B, soul and even jazz “Our day will come, and we’ll have everything”. Tears dry on Their Own(original version), the voice of Amy reflects perfectly the sadness in their soul and the band performs great following this. I have to say that this song moves me and make me sad. I like this ballad more than the version that was released in 2007 because transmits more feeling in it. Valerie (68 version), another classic song of Amy but this time with a faster tempo and with the guitar sound fresher making the song more danceable. The girl from Ipanema was another surprise for me in this album, Amy’s voice fuelled with softness to transmit the original feeling of the track is followed with a jazz band that changed the style from bossa to jazz. Half Time, a very touching song in chill out tempo, soft and sweet this song enters your mind and soul: “Halftime, time to think it through, consider the change, see it from a different view”. Wake up Alone (Original Recording), a smoother version, just a guitar, bass and just touches of drums, the voice of Amy could pierce your soul. At the end of the song the evidence of the passing life of Amy is revealed (for the album) because her voice is faded and disappears leaving the band playing solo. Body and Soul, this song begins with the original voice of Tony Bennett and then Amy, alternating in this way all the song. “Body and Soul” was recorded as a duet by Tony Bennett and Amy Winehouse on the 23rd of March 2011, it was the last recording from our friend Amy revealing their mature in her music and following the original style of the song, she was very nervous when she recorded this song given that Tony Bennett was a great leader for Amy. The album was a great finish for the career of Amy, specially with the Tony Bennett and Amy duet, she said one time: “Y’know what? Marvin Gaye‘s great, but Donny Hathaway, like, he couldn’t contain himself. He had something in him, y’know?”And i could say the same for Amy too. Rest in peace Lioness.
