Hi everyone, thanks to Françoise and according to:


We now know that the contents of the French version of the CD will be the same as the German version. Here’s what the site says:

“ Le Mot de l'éditeur : Ain't no mountain high enough

Impossible de ne pas aimer le “son Motown”, cette musique soul mâtinée de pop. Toute une génération a grandi avec, et Michael Bolton n’a pas dérogé à la règle.

Sur “Ain‘t No Mountain High Enough - A Tribute to Hitsville U.S.A”, le chanteur rend hommage aux plus grands tubes issus de l’ère Motown. Il chante ses propres versions de ces hits intemporels, et par là-même paie son tribut à quelques-uns des plus grands auteurs et compositeurs de cette époque, tout en conservant son style si reconnaissable. Prenons comme exemple “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”, l’un des plus grands hits de la Motown. Cette chanson, popularisée Marvin Gaye puis par Diana Ross. La version présente sur cet album, et interprétée en duo avec la star anglaise Leona Lewis, est en fidèle aux versions originales, personne ne pourra le nier. La dernière piste de l’album est une autre version de cette chanson, cette fois-ci en duo avec la star allemande Helene Fischer.

D’autres duos sont également présents : sur “Ain’t Nothin Like the Real Thing” en compagnie de Melanie Fiona, étoile montante du R&B américain, et sur « Money » avec la guitariste virtuose Orianthi.

En plus de ces reprises, Michael Bolton nous gratifie de 2 nouvelles chansons : “Gotta Keep Dreamin” et “Somethin Out of Nothin“.

En bonus, un deuxième CD intitulé “Greatest Hits – Michael Bolton’s Favourites”, contient les meilleurs chansons de Michael Bolton, choisies par lui-même, et retraçant sa riche carrière.

Pour résumer, Michael Bolton et la Motown : retrouvez le meilleur des deux mondes. . “


Word from the editor: “Ain’t no mountain high enough”

Impossible not to love the “Motown sound”, this soul music mixed with pop. An entire generation grew up with it and Michael Bolton hasn’t broken the rule. On “Ain‘t No Mountain High Enough-A Tribute to Hitsville U.S.A”, the singer pays homage to the greatest hits born of the Motown era. He sings his own versions of the timeless hits, while paying tribute   to some of the greatest singer-songwriters of that time and keeping his unmistakable style.  Take for instance “Ain’t no mountain high enough”, one of the greatest Motown hits, this song, popularized by Marvin Gaye and then Diana Ross. The present version on this album is sung as a duet with English star Leona Lewis, stays faithful to the original versions, no one will deny. The last track of the album is another version of this song, this time sung with the German star Helene Fischer. Other duets are also present: “Ain’t nothing like the real thing” accompanied of rising American R&B star Melanie Fiona and guitar virtuoso Orianthi on “Money”.

In addition to these covers, Michael Bolton graces us with 2 new songs : “Gotta Keep Dreamin” and “Somethin Out of Nothin“. 

As a bonus, a second CD entitled “Greatest Hits – Michael Bolton’s Favourites”, contains Michael Bolton’s best  songs, chosen by himself and retracing his rich career 

To sum it up, Michael Bolton and Motown: the best of both worlds.

So there you are folks! Take care and hugs to all, sincerely, Sylvie QC Canada :D

Thanks for update Sylvie !! :)

Announced on Twitter that Michael's and Fiona Lewis's version of ANMHE on MB's UK version of the CD is song of the week on the BBC Radio 2 channel here and here is tweet:

Leona Lewis@LeonaUKArmy 2h

Great news! Michael Bolton ft. Leona Lewis - Ain't No Mountain High Enough is song of the week on Radio 2!

Thought would bring this link over here as well as having placed in the 2014 Tour Review thread for it does contain description and write-up about UK version of ANMHE due for release on 5th May and as I said in other thread it also contains very interesting information about show at RAH in London which would appear to be one that is going to be slightly different from the usual format of a concert.....be interesting to know exactly what format and time will tell !!! :)   As I said in other thread we do have a TV programme which is called "An Evening With............" so could it be going to be recorded ????

Another opportunity for UK fans to win a copy of Michael's new CD and competition closes on 30th April for this one.


Just to say looks as though you have to be on Google Chrome to enter.....I can't get to work and think will put message on their tweet.

Sylvia.  Your wee Scottish friend.


Hi Sylvia, since you've put the link to that contest/competition here, I thought I'd add the one Gail posted in the "German release" thread, since it's to win the U.K. version:


You have to be a U.K. resident to enter, so felt it was relevant to put it here. Good luck to U.K. Fans! Take care Sylvia. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie QC Canada

Another competition to win copies of Michael's UK version of CD ANMHE


Sylvia.  Your wee Scottish friend.


Sam Bailey Official has posted tweet which Michael has retweeted and it states that her duet with Michael of "Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing" is to be released next Sunday as a single.   Here is tweet..............                     

Sam & duet 'Ain't Nothing But the Real Thing' is being released next Sun as a single! Yes Sam! Team Sam x

Sylvia.  Your wee Scottish friend.


Hey Sylvia, you wouldn't happen to know whether it's only on ITunes or as a physical CD, would you? Just wondering. Thanks for the update, take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D

Have been checking on it Sylvie but can't find any information.   Have posed question via FB on Sam's page so will see if get any response but will definitely keep looking as I am getting asked about it too on my FB page for Michael ......think a few people want a CD in their hands, including me !!!!! lol.

Sylvia.  Your wee Scottish friend.


Hi again Sylvia, well I think it probably goes for both Michael fans and Sam fans. Besides, I'm curious to know about bonus tracks if any. Chances are that since it's a Sam single, extra tracks would be Sam's, but you never know. :D Thanks for keeping us posted Sylvia, much appreciated. Take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D

Just for up-date and I cannot find a thing about supposed single of "Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing" from Michael and Sam being released today, nothing at all !!!!   Have checked all sites that I know of for new releases, charts and everything else and nothing and there is no mention on Sam's page on FB and I got no answers from question I posed on FB and on Twitter in reply to tweet about it and of course too, Michael hasn't said anything except retweeting the tweet that Sam's people put out  way back so, sorry folks, but no further forward !!!! :(

Should add that I have checked also the iTunes store and there is nothing about any single for Sam Bailey or Michael Bolton being released today.

Sylvia.  Your wee Scottish friend.
