timlove160 I absolutely love this record and I'm thrilled that it is available on Bandcamp. I owned a CD of it that my brother ripped for me. But I love it so much I actually bought it on Bandcamp. The sad thing is I actually did not know a lot of these songs. I knew that they were old classics, but I had never actually listened to them. Stan introduced me to them. And I think he actually does a wonderful tribute to them.

about

"The Way I Feel Today "

A swingin' and surly sonic succotash from Stan Ridgway, singin' and croonin', cryin' and swoonin'. Mix up a high ball and join Stan and his big-band as he sings these golden greats of yesteryear! Croon' the Classics! With two olives please!

Review - " The Way I Feel Today was a real out-of-the-blue left-turn for Stan Ridgway, especially coming only a few years after his work with "experimental noise combo" Drywall. On this CD, Ridgway reinvented himself as a big band crooner, and enlisted a genuine Hollywood big band to help him tackle a wide range of Sinatra-esque standards, regardless of their perceived campiness or kitsch value. You'll find some interesting and amusing performances here, especially when Stan tips his hat to narrative songs such as "One for My Baby" (which was a clear, if previously unacknowledged, influence on his own "A Mission in Life"), or when he exuberantly belts out a strong novelty number like "The Coffee Song." Fine, brassy arrangements by the Robert McNelly big band and unquestionably heartfelt performances by Ridgway throughout. Bravo! "
