AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine [-]
Released as a tie-in to Paul Anka's 2013 memoir My Way (really, would an Anka autobiography bear another name?), the 2013 collection Duets attempts to illustrate the depth of Anka's career through song, letting the singer/songwriter indulge himself with duet partners both expected and unfamiliar. There is a degree of posthumous trickery here -- he sings "This Is It" with Michael Jackson and "My Way" with Frank Sinatra, two vocalists long deceased by the time Anka assembled this album -- but Anka is such a creature of show biz that this sleight of hand doesn't much matter; arguably, it even enhances the splash and glitz of this deliberately showy album. There may be a little too much modernity on Duets -- Anka succumbs to Auto-Tune here and there, including on "Find My Way Back to your Heart," the only solo song here -- and there's the odd sense that he's trying to appeal to every possible audience that may exist in 2013, although nothing here could conceivably be played on modern radio. Instead, Duets plays like a fantasia of pre-MTV pop, songs designed for maximum radio play even when there are no outlets for that sound. There are some pleasant moments here, to be sure -- many of them play like throwbacks to 1990, including Tom Jones' new take on "She's a Lady" -- but it's a sound that belongs to past that's long since gone.
Paul Anka Releases 'Duets' Album On 09 April 2013 With Recordings From Michael Buble, Tom Jones, Frank Sinatra, Celine Dion And More
On 09 April 2013, Sony Music Legacy Recordings will release 'Duets', a celebration of Paul Anka's 55th year as a singer/songwriter/entertainer featuring brand new recordings with Michael Bublé and Leon Russell and collaborations with some of the world's greatest artists.
The album brings together a mixture of the best artists and songs throughout music history including Paul Anka's all-time classic 'My Way', recorded by Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson's posthumous last single 'This Is It' co-written by Anka and the track he penned for Tom Jones, 'She's A Lady'.
Duets also features collaborations with George Benson, MICHAEL MCDONALD, Dolly Parton, Leon Russell, Gloria Estefan, Willie Nelson, Patti Labelle, Chris Botti and Peter Cetera, who have all contributed to Paul Anka's musical journey in this warming, must-have album. The release coincides with Anka's long-awaited life story, 'MY WAY: An Autobiography', co-written with David Dalton and published by St. Martins Press.
Paul Anka said: 'Throughout the history of music there have been all kinds of songs; to me, the classics still reign supreme. This endeavour, these songs, will be easy on your ears; they are the stuff that love and life is all about.'
Paul Anka is a pop music legend and is among Billboard magazine's top 25 most successful recording artists, putting him alongside Elvis Presley and The Beatles. Anka's debut single, Diana hit the number one spot in the UK in 1957 and he has continued to chart singles throughout the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.
Paul Anka wrote all his own hits - 'Diana', 'You Are My Destiny', 'Lonely Boy', 'Put Your Head On My Shoulder', 'PuppyLove' and took control of his business career (producing, buying and owning his master recordings, a practice he still employs today).
Anka finishes with a personal message: 'I am proud of what you are about to hear, and I am grateful to those of you out there who continue to show an interest in every body of work that I create. I have always said that success has many fathers and I thank everyone who has made this venture possible; it is always a team effort.'
From the 1950s into the new millennium, Paul has endured and thrived as a very successful performer, songwriter, and recording artist. He long ago cemented his status as an icon of popular music; but never one to rest on his impressive laurels, he has continually re-invented himself throughout his career, establishing new pop standards and electrifying the classics.
The prolific and versatile songwriter is now releasing a brand-new collection: DUETS. This remarkable assortment of classics and standards features superstar collaborations with Chris Botti, Celine Dion, Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble, Tom Jones, and many others.
