    Michael Bolton Corrects Eva Cassidy's Faulty Recording of "Fields Of Gold"

    Finally. The original was such a mess, one must admit. But Mr. B. has fixed it up so that "Fields Of Gold" is now listenable.

    AOL is streaming Bolton's new album, "Gems - The Duets Collection", listen to Michael duet with Eva here:

    Michael Bolton - Gems The Duets Collection

    Mikey also covers "Pride (In the Name Of Love)", which U2 could never really get a handle on. Plus he covers "The Prayer" and "Hallelulah", two songs that no one has done a very good job on until this time.

    Mark my word, expect to see Mr. Bolton up on stage next February taking home the Grammy for best album of the year for this treasure.
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    Brian's going to take exception to the opinions you've voiced here.

    And leave it to a skating fan to refer to Eva's version as the "original."

    Wow. Just listened to Pride (In the Name of Love). I hope Bono and the Edge show up at next year's Grammys and kick MB's ass for that one.

    You're being too literal. Bolton took Eva's original, removed some of her vocals and added her own. So we're talking about Eva's original recording, as apparently she declined to record a new vocal with Mr. B. for some reason...

    You have, umm, interesting taste in music PeterG. I cannot imagine Michael Bolton improving anything, especially Eva Cassidy's sublime version of "Fields of Gold." He sings like he has a very painful hernia.

    For some reason . . . You're awful.

    Hahaha. Reminds me of Pat Boone's In A Metal Mood. Another instant classic
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    I think I'm going to have to listen to the real versions of these songs to cleanse my brain.

    I don't think Peter can imagine him improving anything, either.

    Yes, and when she returns home afterwards, takes Bolton with him. With so many songs out there to choose from, he really picked a good handful which will only make people hate him more. Not too bright, for sure.

    And what was Cassidy's estate thinking to let this happen? Why not let Barry Manilow have a shot at it first?

    As I said on Facebook, for doing this to Eva's song, he must be destroyed by a meteor.

    And as PL replied, this may be one of the 7 signs of the apocalypse.

    Looking at the tracks on this album...it's like the album that was specifically made to torture me, with every song that makes me run screaming from the room. All that's missing is a duet with Michael Buble to make it complete.
    We live in an ageist society where everything is based on youth, but I hated being 18. I don't like teenagers any more now than I did then. I'm 49 now and there is no way that I'd go back to my teens and 20s - even if I knew what I know now, I don't want to go through all that again. I found it a very difficult time. - Buzz Osborne of the Melvins

    B & B do a hidden track on the album, a cover of Simon and Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water". Finally a definitive version.

    PeterG., I'm very worried about you. These posts show that you are very immature and probably have an unstable home life. I hope you seek the help that you need; obviously it's you that has the trouble waters.

    You are worse than Flatt. Who will no doubt skate to a muzaked mash-up version of every song on this CD.

    Are you serious? Somehow I just can't picture Pat Boone tackling the Judas Priest or Black Sabbath catalogs.
