They should issue more albums like this in the States. This Japanese issue contains the best of George Kerr's All Platinum tracks. Kerr doesn't have much range, but when the song's in the pocket, he delivers, as on "Three Minutes to Hey Girl." Kerr tacked a rap onto the beginning of this old Freddie Scott tune and made it his biggest hit. Similar remakes of "The Masquerade Is Over" and Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell's "If This World Was Mine" didn't do as well. "Tweedly-Dum-Dum" is just plain silly, while "I'm So Glad You Stayed" is a tender ballad that rode the back of Kerr's rendition of "Love Is a Hurting Thing," which inexplicably didn't make this collection.
