Inside The Groove

Benton's “Best” album; really best of his hit songs.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

In order to get full of his appealings, it's not enough to listen to his “hit” singles. Many albums contains various kinds of tunes which concentrates on drawing out Benton's fascinating ability as an “singer”. On the other hand, his hit tunes ALSO conveys attractive moments as a singer, PLUS we can enjoy his another side - a great songwriter.

Actually all tunes have unforgettable melidies, nice arrangements, and his great voice. That's one of the real “best” album for him.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

9 out of 10
