Michael Bolton: Soul Provider (CBS 465343 1/CD) ****

Paul Elliott, Sounds, 16 September 1989

GORRELL AND Carmichael's 'Georgia On My Mind' is the kind of song that can swallow up lesser singers. Michael Bolton sings it as good as, if not better than, Ray Charles. Whatever, Bolton's version suggests he's perhaps the greatest white singer of his era.
