Album Review

In 2001, Philippine independent Vicor Records released, Victor Wood — Mr. Lonely, a collection of songs recorded by male Philippine singer Victor Wood for the label between 1907 and 1975. The album is dominated by remakes of American songs from the 1950s and 1960s. Opening the album is a remake of Bobby Vinton's "Mr. Lonely," on which Victor Wood imparts much passion and emotion. Victor Wood's voice is smooth and has depth, and his delivery throughout the album is distinguished by warmth and sincerity. Victor Wood also performs a version of Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline," replete with the catchy horn riffs heard in the original version. Out of the album's 14 tracks, four songs were composed by Philippine songwriters, including the ballad "I'm Sorry Now," which sounds like a song Paul Anka might sing. Victor Wood performs a fine version of Kris Kristofferson's "For the Good Times," imparting much depth and sincerity. Two of the more surprising numbers were first recorded by American soul stars Jackie Wilson and Eddie Floyd, the funky and entertaining "Lonely Teardrops" and "Knock on Wood," respectively. While the arrangement of "Lonely Teardrops" approximates the soulful approach of the original version, Victor Wood sings the song in a straightforward manner, minus the funkiness imbued by Jackie Wilson. However, Victor Wood gets down and funky on "Knock on Wood," and the instrumentation is as rough-edged as the original version. The songs on Victor Wood — Mr. Lonely are enjoyable, and it's significant to note that most of these songs are conducive to karaoke singing, a popular pastime in the Philippines. However, it's too bad this album relies so heavily on remakes of American songs.
