you can find some quotes and reviews about Sue's Solo CD
Moreno: a dreamwoman...She looks like a Spanish or Mexican beauty, probably
has got some roots back there, but it’s possible to just talk Dutch
to her. At this moment she is the dreamwoman for many who are able to
see and hear her in the Country Music Hall of Fame (initiated by Bob de
Jong). She plays the part that was meant for Annita at first. Due to a
car accident she unfortunately couldn’t make it to the show. Sue
Moreno cannot be compared to anybody because she takes her own place in
showbizz. In the past, she played many songs in the Elvis-style. She even
worked with his bandmember D.J. Fontana and was on the road with people
like Rocky Burnette, Ace Cannon and Paul Burlinson. Besides Elvis’
work, her attention goes out to sensual songs by the likes of Marilyn
Monroe, Ann-Margret and ‘all time’ nostalgic work. That’s
the spirit of this album as well, a mix of popballads, music with a lotta
feeling and a jazzy tone, a bit of rock and a little country. This feeling
for variety was brought to her in her musical upbringing. Her role in
the Country Music Hall of Fame definitely brought her on the country-tracks,
and especially the older songs she performs sound close to nature. Even
though there’s not much country on this cd (who knows what her next
album brings) we can enjoy great songs like Tender Feelin’ / (All
I Can Do Is) Dream You / Yes I Know / I Remember You / Hallelujah I Love
Him So / Johnny Guitar / Perfidia / Bachelor in Paradise… (20 songs
CD lohnt sich alleine wegen des Covers! Sue Moreno ist nicht nur talentiert,
Sie ist auch noch ausgesprochen hübsch. Sue’s sexy, rauchige
Stimme passt hervorragend zur Titelauswahl. Neben 18 im Englisch gesungenen
Titeln, finden sich zwei spanische wieder.
piacevole sorpresa ci viene da questo cd debutto di Sue Moreno. Il cd
viene registrato in Olanda e nei 20 brani contenuti possiamo scoprire
le qualità vocali della cantante. Da sempre appassionata di Elvis
ha lavorato per una rivista olandese dedicata al Re e si cimentava spesso
in esibizioni e gare canore su Presley. Nel corso degli anni il canto
la porta a conoscere e frequentare artisti come Paul Burlison, D.J. Fontana,
Rocky Burnette e Ace Cannon fino alla recente proposta da parte della
Rarity Records di realizzare un cd.
it really is possible to fall in love with music, then your CD has a new
boyfriend. I don't think I've ever heard a disk quite like this, such
a sweet blend of rockabilly, torch and twang, and cuts that sound straight
out of cool 60's movies. You have definitely found a real niche in the
middle of all the americana twangers out there, I really hope you'll do
more of this type of music. You're the featured artist on this week's
Hill Country Hayride. I played 'Pure Love', 'Dream You', 'Look Before
You Leap', and 'Hallelujah I Love Him So'..."
was a little surprised at first to hear that it wasn't a "rockabilly"
CD per se but I must tell you that I'm glad. I think you really hit on
your strong suit with these selections...smoky, silky voiced, twangy,
torchy ballads and love songs. Fantastic! ...the sound and style you got
on this CD is different and unique..."
of Sue turned out to be her first solo CD, without her Flaming Stars.
And it’s even more surprising than I thought it would be…
Why? First of all because the style is totally different from what I expected
it to be. I expected a lot of Elvis or music in the style of Annita (ex-
Haystack Hi-Tones) and Mary Ann (Ranch Girls) but it’s all very
different. The sound is different than expected as well. Not very authentic,
and produced in a modern way as well, yet with a very rootsy approach
and, if necessary, played in the original way. Pure Love (Johnny Burnette),
the opener, is the most rockabilly type song, but Sue’s modest,
almost mysterious voice makes the song totally different. The same goes
for the only real rock ‘n roll song on the album, Rave On (Buddy
Holly). Why isn’t there any more rock ‘n roll or rockabilly?
It’s pretty simple: her voice turns out to be perfect for songs
with a more jazzy feel, or – if you don’t like the word- a
soft, intimate or maybe even a sultry way of singing in songs like (All
I Can Do Is) Dream You (Roy Orbison) and I Remember You (Johnny Mercer).
These performances wouldn’t be wrong in a classy coctail bar with
high classed ladies. That’s the least meant for a song like I’m
Gonna File My Claim, originally by no one less than Marilyn Monroe…
The fact that I don’t know most of the songs is only logical. Most
aren’t really from the rock ’n roll genre, and some of them
are real classics, it is possible to find out who were the firsts with
a (commercial) succes with it, but hard to find out who the original performers
were. The song Sway hasn’t been made famous by Number Nine, Bobby
Rydell (1960), not even by Dean Martin (1954), but originally it is a
Mexican song, Quien Sera. Sue sings it in both languages but that’s
not very hard to do with such a last name. Sue’s debut is an album
that’s worth it! And it also shows a lot of courage to exploit her
character in these 20 songs.. But clearly it’s no r&r or rockabilly..."
is made right here on Radio 9! Sue Moreno's CD 'All I Can Do Is Dream
You' will bring shivers to the bones of real musiclovers. The very well-known
Johnny Guitar has been supplied with great words and the song goes straight
into your heart and it will stay there forever, a very catchy song and
beautiful pictures! You started 2003 off very well..."
is great.A lot more Jazzy than i thought it would be , but really good.
Well done (...)love your version of 'Sway'. Damn you've bettered mine
"...I got to
know Sue Moreno through our mutual admiration for Elvis Presley. About
12 - 13 years ago, we were both part of the staff for a Dutch Elvis magazine.
We discussed The King numerous times, but somehow she never really talked
much about her own musical aspirations, which I think says a lot about
her modest personality. The first time that I saw Sue perform was at an
Elvis festival in 1999, and needless to say that I was pleasantly surprised.
It's always difficult for any performer to sing Elvis songs, but she carried
it off very well, focusing mainly on the lesser-known material from his
