Album Review

The omission of Stewart's heartfelt "How Nice It Is," one of his seven best singles, is the only sore spot. Compilers always overlook the tension-filled ballad on these short collections (11 songs). Stewart's six other gems — "Strange Feeling," "I Do Love You," "Sitting in the Park," "Cross My Heart," "Summertime," and "Secret Love" — sparkle like diamonds with their digitally remastered makeovers. Also solid are "Everyday I Have the Blues," with vocal accompaniment by the Dells, and "Reap What You Sow," featuring the Jewels.

This is a must buy for R&B Fans

Ok every once in a while you find something old that rocks your world and Billy Stewart is by far one of the most under rated and un played of the oldie R&B Artists . The Beach Music Scene of the Carolinas keeps his music alive today and I swear his style has had a little to do with reggae in the 60's as well. Sitting In The Park is by far one of my favs as is I Do Love You and Summertime which is a classic done right.. All in all if you want groove this will do it to yah.

I told him of how, as an adolescent in the early 70's, I watched them pull, from the Neuse River in Smithfield, NC, the car that he and his band rode the last night of their lives. I have awesome memories of listening to BS as I grew up on the coastal planes of NC. I'm downloading this album to give to my husband for his birthday so we can enjoy it together.


Why is every R&B singer not covering/sampling this guys work?! I am so shocked that I was not aware of Billy Stewart's increadible body of Work! What a discovery! He is truly an amazing talent.

Pianist and singer Billy Stewart was a distinctive and influential R&B vocalist whose stuttering delivery and word-repetition technique borrowed liberally from the jazz practice of scat singing. Born in Washington, D.C., in 1937, Stewart started singing publicly with his mother's group, the Stewart Gospel Singers, as a teenager. He moved into secular music by filling in occasionally for the Rainbows, a D.C.-area vocal group led by future soul star Don Covay; like fellow Rainbows substitute Marvin...
