Harry Connick, Jr. is a man of many moods, all supremely musical. Look no further than his recent Columbia albums for proof.
After exploring the wonders of childhood on his 2001 Grammy ®-winning songs I Heard and the spirit of the Christmas via his recent blockbuster Harry for the Holidays, Connick now turns to the matter of romance on his new collection of ballads, Only You.

With a selection of songs that made comebacks in the 50's when they were covered by then-hit bands, such as "My Prayer" - first performed by the Ink Spots in the 30's, then later covered by the Platters in the 50's. This album should appeal to those who had their hey-day in the 50's and 60's, as well as today's 20 year olds. Harry's smooth tones should appeal to any young woman.
Overall, quite a pleasant album. I quite look forward to some nice weather so I can pipe it to the outdoor speakers, relax back on the seat and soak a few quiet, relaxing therms while I sip a cold one. Maybe even char a few lumps of flesh on the BBQ, if fate should allow me that much.
