After her very successful “Malayo man Malapit din” album, it is evident that Carmen Soriano’s multifaceted talents shine best interpreting Pilipino music. Her latest offering, “D’yos lamang ang Nakakaalam”, is a well-balanced collection of old favorites and present day standards.
In this album, executive producer Allan J.Villar of A&W Records International has seen fit to re-introduce five beautiful selections from the past, “Maalaala mo kaya”, “Katakataka”, “Minamahal,Sinasamba”, “Dalagang Pilipina” and “Minamahal Kita,” fully confident that Carmen would breathe fresh life into these musical gems. It is also worthy to note that of the twelve selections in the album, four include the works of Don Manolo P.Villar Sr., one of the Philippines’ best lyricist.
It would take thousands, or even millions of words to describe the care, attention, and love poured into this album. Perhaps, it would be best to let the album speak for itself. So, here now is “D’yos lamang ang Nakakaalam”, a sparkling tribute to our outstanding Pilipino music,writers by the Philippines’ top songbird, Carmen Soriano.
