    Editorial Review

    At this point, who else but Tony Bennett would have the clout to round up stars on the scale of Elton John, Paul McCartney, Bono, Celine Dion and Barbra Streisand for some duets? (Note also that unlike some similar projects, all the parties involved on this CD were alive when it was recorded!) The material consists of relatively obvious classics in standard big-band arrangements, and Bennett himself is in top form at age 80, so much so that he doesn't need anybody else to handle "I Left My Heart in San Francisco." But the fun comes from checking out how his collaborators fare. The Dixie Chicks provide wonderful Andrews Sisters–type harmonies on the percolating version of "Lullaby of Broadway" that opens the festivities. The best songs tend to be the ones where Bennett's slightly craggy voice is juxtaposed to smooth female ones, like Diana Krall on "The Best Is Yet to Come," familiar accomplice k.d. lang on the sultry "Because of You" and Streisand—-perhaps Bennett's only equal in stature at this point—on "Smile." Among the less expected guests, soulman John Legend is a revelation on the hard-swinging "Sing, You Sinners," while George Michael confirms he’s quite the crooner on "How Do You Keep the Music Playing?" Elvis Costello, Celine Dion or Juanes don't sound as comfortable, and sometimes it feels as if they overdo it to compensate, but overall this collection is among the best of its kind, with most guests rising to the occasion.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Dissapointed
    I am sorry to say this is one of the worst CD's I bought. I thought with all the wonderful performers it was gone to be awsome. The backgrond music sounds boring. I know it's old songs but I guess I expected it to be more upbeat. I wouldn't sugest this to anyone unless you were a big Tony Bennett fan.

    5-0 out of 5 stars BUY THE TARGET SPECIAL EDITION!!!!
    I highly recommend you to buy the Target special edition. It contains a "making duets" DVD (about 20 minutes) and 4 bonus tracks with Diana Krall ("I've Got The World On A String" recorded live in 2000...WOW!!!), Micheal Bublé ("Steppin' Out With My Baby" a studio duet), Judy Garland ("I Left My Heart In San Francisco" from the Judy Garland Show) and Frank Sinatra ("The Lady Is A Tramp" recorded live in 1988). Enjoy!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Embarrassing ;80 year old needs retirementmoney.
    An early reviewer said it best : "Tony Bennett's old-age pension CD is much less embarrassing than Frank Sinatra's post-70 Duets projects." However, it is disappointing...a shame to hear his great voice straining for high notes and the intonanation so raspy.His choice of duet partners were selected for the bellowing style that attempts to gloss over Tony's shortcoming.They mostly creat a cacophonus soundtrack.Spend the money if you want to help The Bennet Retirement Fund which is a worthy cause, after all the beautiful phrasing he has given us in the past. ...

    3-0 out of 5 stars It's pretty good.
    I don't really think its correct to label this as a "duets" album, since some of the performers don't even sing, they just play guitar or whatever, and the ones that do sing are rarely adding more than background vocals.Thats okay though, since Jerry Lee Lewis really is the star here.I'm surprised he sounds this good considering he's, what, 71 now?I mean, he can still play really well, and his voice sounds pretty good still.
    4-0 out of 5 stars A Rock and Roll Street Brawl
    Make no mistake. The star of this CD is the piano playing of Jerry Lee Lewis. The boozy duets with George Jones, Merle Haggard, Ringo Starr and Keith Richards are as comfortable as your favorite slippers. But the true highlight of this CD is the street brawl between Jerry Lee's piano and the guitar of Jimmy Page, on "Rock and Roll". The track opens with a typical Page high octane riff, followed by the Killer saying, "This IS rock and roll!" You sense a battle brewing: the kid gunslinger (OK, middle-aged gunslinger), looking for the legend. And the legend doesn't back down. The battle for supremacy between the piano and the guitar rages at a furious pace, reminiscent of a John Wayne-Richard Widmark fist fight, rolling in a dusty street, both relishing the battle. One gets the sense that Lewis and Page call it a draw at the end, put their arms around each other, and walk back into the bar. This IS a new classic of rock and roll.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Killer rocks on
    Many duet albums have been released last couple of years, but this one is really something special. Jerry lee Lewis his piano playing and vocals are upfront and sound amazing, the guest artists show really respect for The Killers talent.

    Editorial Review

    Michael Bublé's assured debut and the tireless year of globe-trotting touring he spent promoting it elevated the 20-something Vancouver native into the first rank of pop crooner revivalists. His sophomore studio follow-up largely turns on the same formula that helped make his considerable vocal prowess so attractive to mainstream audiences, mixing the nigh flawless, if expected Sinatra-channeling ("I've Got You Under My Skin") with more playful and inviting renditions of pop standards like the Gershwin's "A Foggy Day in London Town," "Feeling Good," "Try A Little Tenderness" and Cole Porter's "I've Got You Under My Skin." But it's the eclectic mix of more contemporary material the singer seasons them with -- apt tribute to Bublé hero Bobby Darin -- that keeps him walking the narrow tightrope between artistic intrigue (a blues-tinged vamp of Holland-Dozier-Holland's "How Sweet It Is," Leon Russell's lovely "Song For You," with a guest turn by Chris Botti) and the kitsch-laden abyss ("Quando, Quando, Quando"'s Euro-centric duet with Nelly Furtado, a ring-a-ding-fling with the Beatles' "Can't Buy Me Love" that echoes fellow Canadian crooner/rival Matt Dusk's more successful flirtation with Lennon-McCartney). Arranger/producer Tommy LiPuma offers Bublé a welcome swinging jazz showcase on "The More I See of You," a bracing respite from the rest of producer David Foster's slick, if typically bloodless MOR production.Read more

    I rememeber the first time that I listened to this CD.I was in my car about a year ago waiting for an appointment.I would hear a new song, and I would scream with the excitement of a teenage fangirl.I love the arrangements of old standards. I love the new songs. I love the sound of the band, and most of all I love the sensuous sound of Michale Buble's voice. 10 out of 10!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Nelly, you only had to learn ONE WORD IN SPANISH.....
    We loved the CD, but were disappointed when Nelly sang CUANDO CUANDO CUANDO. She only had to learn one word in Spanish, and instead of saying CUANDO (translation: when), she sang CUANTO (translation: how much), prostituting the song.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Another Great one
    After thoroughly enjoying the DVD/CD release, "Caught in the Act," I also gave this CD a listen to by Buble, the second album of his that I have listened to. I have to give it 5 stars because I am very much impressed with and enamoured by Buble's emergence on the scene. He is a very capable vocalist and has given me a new perspective on what a jazz vocalist should sound like.

    Although I don't own this album, my dad does and I listen to it all the time. Songs like "I'm Looking Through You", "Drive My Car", "Wait", and "The Word" rock! Other soft songs like "In My Life", "Nowhere Man", "Norwegian Wood", and "Michelle" are good to. So if you don't already have it, go out and get it!

    5-0 out of 5 stars RUBBER SOUL IS AS REAL AS IT GETS
    I purchased this album in 1966 and was blown away, but first had to readjust from the Fab's earlier works and learn to appreciate how different Rubber Soul was from Help, yet still analogous. I mean, we all knew it was the Beatles when I've Just Seen A Face (American release) leaped into our ears upon our first listen, but they had transcended their classic sound a year earlier, surpassing anything they or anyone else had come close to perfecting prior to Rubber Soul. I'm still marveled by these lads, who were in their early 20's during the time Rubber Soul was composed and recorded, and their incredible sophistication for only being barely out of their teens. It's always been difficult for me to listen to anything new without comparing it to their standards. I guess that's not a grumble. I was so lucky to be elevated to this level of music appreciation at such an early age that it has forever changed my manner of thinking. This is one heck of a classy album and my fave forever! It just keeps getting better with every listen. If I may borrow John's line - "In my life...I love them more!" ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Better known as the "White Album," this was meant to be the record that brought them back to earth after three years of studio experimentation. Instead, it took them all over the place, continuing to burst the envelope of pop music. Lennon and McCartney were still at the height of their powers, with Lennon in particular growing into one of rock's towering figures. But even McCartney could still rock, and the amazement on "Helter Skelter" was that he had vocal cords at the end. From Beach Boys knock-offs to reggae and to the unknown ("Revolution #9"), this has it all. Some records have Read more

    Hi, my name's Joao, I have heard anything by this group from Starclub in Hamburg sessions to Twickenham outtakes and beyond to the Ringo Rotogravure and Wings @ the speed of sound and although this bunch is familiar for burning holes in people's pockets with their trite melodies (i would suggest maladies) and nonexistant depth in lyrics (think: 'I once had a girl', 'one to three four can I have a little more' and for instance 'because you're sweet and lovely girl I love you').
    5-0 out of 5 stars The greatest album from the greatest band
    If I were trapped on a deserted island for eternity and could only have one album with me to pass the time, it would be the White Album. It is the most diverse, interesting and well crafted album ever made. The songs range from rock to country to surfer rock to heavy metal to folk to camp to progressive to the just plain weird. The unparelled songwriting genius of Lennon and McCartney is well on display here as is there obvious differences in style. Harrison also emerges on the White Album and showcases his best song ever "While My Guitar Gently Weeps". Some may point to "Sgt Pepper" as the Beatles crowning achievement, I point directly and emphatically to the White Album.

    Editorial Review

    Accuse Rod Stewart of what you like--through the years he's been calleda philanderer, a has-been, a pageant-ish progenitor of puff rock--butas he has consistently proved with his Great American Songbook series, the concept of dignity is not lost on him. There is a time,after all, for leaping across stages in leopard-print spandex whileshamelessly parading an unparalleled gift for scratchy-voicedseduction, and he is past it. Past his prime is another thing. On thisfourth installation of the Clive Davis-produced series, Stewart againmakes excellent use of his rolodex: Diana Ross, whose affection for this material comesthrough as convincingly as her spike-haired partner's, cuddles up foropener "I've Got a Crush On You," Chaka Khan packs her bags but not her mighty vocalsfor "You Send Me," andSir Elton shelves the recent balladeer's instinctsfor a rip-roaring run through "Makin' Whoopee." A handful of marqueeinstrumentalists also returned Rod's calls-- Dave Koz blows sax on "Nevertheless," and trumpetersChris Botti andRoy Hargrove turn up the heat on "I Wish You Love"and "My One and Only Love" respectively. As on earlier discs, though,it's when Rod rules the spotlight alone that he can be most compelling:Cue up "My Funny Valentine" in the right frame of mind and you maynever need to hear it sung by another. Retiring the satin shirts infavor of this material was the smartest move Stewart ever made. Read more

    This CD should come with a warning label: not fit for mature / discreet listening audiences. Listening to this bloody dreadful CD could be hazardous to your ears.
    1-0 out of 5 stars Little Rod Rooster....Is That Singing?
    Has America gone completely mad? A previous reviewer states: "Rod has outdone himself on this one." Huh? Did she really mean that as a compliment? I've come to the conclusion that nobody under sixty years of age in this screwed-up contemporary society, in which mediocrity reigns, has any idea what a great pop vocalist sounds like. The songs included on this travesty of a cd are standards, classics of jazz-pop. Listening to Stewart mangle them with his phlegm-saturated gargling must have Mildred Bailey, Ella Fitzgerald, Mel Torme, Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra, etc., turning over in their graves. Stick with the few remaining major leaguers like Tony Bennett and Vic Damone---even in their eighties they sound lightyears better than this sandpaper-voiced human vegetable. Or check out the newer generation of pop-jazz crooners like Michael Buble, Harry Connick, and Peter Cincotti. They are infinitely better singers than this guy. My God! I can't believe that some people truly think this guy has talent! What's next---- Joe Cocker sings Caruso?

    If all documentation of music was destroyed (99% of today's music should be anyways)this album would be the only blueprint needed for an ALBUM.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Definitely the best
    Even more than Pepper, I think this was the album that changed pop music forever. I was in the UK and a teen at the time, and I have to admit it took several listenings and a healthy dose of illegal srimulants to figure it out. Today the music is still revolutionary and I no longer need the stimulants (sniff) but it ranks as one of the best 5 albums of all time

    3-0 out of 5 stars Whose Top 10?
    I've no designs on being iconoclastic or a hater or anything like that, so before you read on, please understand that. I fully understand that Beatles fans can be a fanatically loyal bunch who back up their beliefs with scores of critical support from the "experts" who have annointed the Beatles as kings of rock and roll music and innovators of all sorts of styles, production values, and other musical milestones. One reviewer even had the audacity to say that this album was "unquestionably" one of the greatest works of art of the 20th century. Well, I certainly question it. Am I able to say that "Road to Ruin" by The Ramones is unquestionably one of the greatest works of art of the 20th century as well? Why not? It's all subjective no matter how much one wants to convey their expertise. This album is good but there are dozens I'd rather hear instead and that criterion alone is the sole one I use to rate albums. As with so much of the Beatles, a bit less of the excessive banner waving and veneration would be a nice change.

    5-0 out of 5 stars THIS WILL BE YOUR FAVORITE FOR 2006
    Solomon Burke singing country is the best thing to happen to Nashville.Take an artist who is always exactly who he is, bring in the finest producer (Buddy Miller), the finest musicians and writers and the finest duet pairings (Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Gillian Welch, Patty Griffin and Patty Loveless) to surround him and 14 songs later, you have yourself your favorite cd - like an old friend.It isn't Solomon Burke "playing cowboy."It is Solomon Burke being Solomon Burke and offering a point of view that fervently honors country music.
    4-0 out of 5 stars A Master At Work
    I am another long-time fan of Burke's, and am rapturous over his revitalized career. 'Nashville' picks up where the brilliant 'Don't Give Up On Me' left off, with Burke again wrapping his warm, rich pipes around songs worthy of them.

    Editorial Review

    Proving yet again their willingness to dice 'n' slice their burgeoning legacy into new--if not exactly fresh--product, the Fab Four Minus One have released this single-disc compendium of their No. 1 hits. Though obviously superfluous to the faithful (who may also find themselves quibbling over the precise definition of "No. 1 hit" and the exclusion of seeming contenders like "Please Please Me" and "Strawberry Fields"), newly arrived visitors from the Pleiades star cluster and other neophytes will find it a concise and generous (nearly 80 minutes) single-disc introduction to the band's career-spanning, unparalleled dominance of pop music in the 1960s. But beyond being a mere trophy case of commercial success (and it won't be hard to find critics who'll argue that these singles aren't even the band's best work), it's also a Read more

    I understand why the Beatles are the top sellers in rock music as they suck. They only made about two decent songs in their "Hey Jude" a pretty song, and "Ballad Of John And Yoko". The sixties was a horrible decade of rock music. I would have to be said that only very few good songs came out in the sixties, which one of them is Neil Young's "Down By The River".

    Editorial Review

    Pop's rush to raid the cradle continues with this promising debut by 25-year-old Canadian singer Michael Bublé. And while the young vocal star's good looks are smart enough for a boy band, his muse seems to have sprung from a more sassy and compelling musical era. Mentored by Paul Anka (whose '50s hit "Put Your Head on My Shoulder" is covered in dreamy, cabaret fashion here), Bublé sings in the orbits of Darin and Sinatra, covering swing epoch gems ("Come Fly with Me," "The Way You Look Tonight," "That's All") and rock era standards (Van Morrison's "Moondance," "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart" by the Brothers Gibb, Queen's "Crazy Little Ting Called Love") with equal aplomb. David Foster's production is typically slick and played to the back row of the bleachers, but it's informed by smart contexts provided by such arrangers as Johnny Mandel, Randy Waldman, and Mike Melvoin. If the choices of material are sometimes staid and predictable, they also give the singer a crucial framework for building toward something more challenging; his is a bright future. Read more

    While we've heard them time and time again - Buble takes the classic standards and adds his own twist. No, maybe there is nothing terribly new going on - but he didn't mutilate the music either.Relaxing - Just lovely.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Rare to find - an entire CD of excellent music!
    Michael Buble is simply incredible, and although I do own all of his CDs it's this one that I come back to time and time again.This is the perfect CD to play while sipping a glass of wine or enjoying dinner with friends.It's slow and sensual at times and then lively and fun.I simply cannot say enough good about this artist or this CD.

    While certainly a better presentation than the Rod Stewarts and Michael Boltons of the world and their flaccid stabs at music way different from a rocker's sensibilities, Buble is a standards singer for those who think Kenny G is a jazz musician and John Tesh is a pianist.

    5-0 out of 5 stars HoorayFor Roddywood !!
    The performances contained in this CD demonstrate a song stylist master at work.Rod has simply taken all the talent,creativity and energy he has remaining and applied it to these masterpieces.Everyone associated with this recording must certainly be proud of their musical endeavors.In all candor,after listening to this CD for several repeated plays,I can honestly state the the American listening public richly deserves this product. Rod has shown the American Idols winners, and losers, how it's done. They, and other musical hopefuls, can certainly take a page from Rod's "playbook", on how to conduct asuccessful longterm career in show business.I suspect that Rod has modeled his career from the great singer and showmanCliff "Ukelele Ike" Edwards. Hopefully, Rod's career will continue into his 90's as did Cliff Edwards.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Cornerstone Of All That Came Behind It
    My title says it all.As a music historian, the release of this album is one of my top 10 moments in the history of recorded music, because it did something that only a handful of other albums ever did - it changed the entire industry.Until 1967, albums by "youth-oriented" artists were rarely more than collections of singles and never seemed to have much flow or continuity - in other words, nothing more than miniature greatest hits collections.But on June 1 of 1967, the Beatles changed everything.Other artists were expanding their horizons as well - the Beach Boys had released Pet Sounds, a bold experiment of sounds mixed with songwriting we had never realized was possible from a young artist.But the mammoth success of Sergeant Pepper would make other albums like this marketable - and it would lead to other recording stars to become artists as much as entertainers.

    Hi dear muzak lovers, yes, you read right: ONE star for this CD is ab-so-lutely enough, no actually it is over the top for try listening to this junk without dangerous mind-altering substatiaries and you're left out in the cold. NO ONE should even dare to attempt to digest this collection of laughable concoctions like Fixin' a Whole (drug related), She's leaving her home (because of a drug habit) and Within and without you (sexual lust caused by bad trip), Good morning (a wake up call to use drugs), LSD (need I say even more????)

    Do you love ripoff artists such as Lenny Kravitz and Norah Jones? Does true originality disturb you and drive you to seek cover in the soft womb of corporate created fluff marketed as the real deal? Then you're in for a treat with this album! Not even Rich Little could do Billie better. Texture of voice AND delivery expertly stolen without a qualm, but without any of the icky sincerity and authentic pain of the original. Enjoy!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Wonderful!
    I first heard Madeleine Peyroux playing through the speakers in a Starbucks on a trip to Seattle. Her voice was magical and I just had to ask who it was. I love Billie Holiday and her style of singing is very similar.This cd is a wonderful collection of songs from Patsy Cline's "Walkin' after midnight" to Edith Piaf's "La vie en rose", you'll love every song.Her other cd "Careless Love" is also a wonderful collection.You can't go wrong with this cd, it's simply lovely.

    1-0 out of 5 stars A wink is as good as a nod to Rod
    I'm in the process of confirming the rumour that Rod was being seriously considered for a knighthood until the royal family was accidently subjected to listening to this CD.The rest,as they say,is history. Let's get serious, Every performer of Rod's stature has the right to dress up and sing like a lounge lizard once and awhile. But like every good joke you only have to tell it to the audience once, not three times and counting.The only group that applauded the release of this CD were chronic insomniacs. Rod needs to emerge from the "counting room" of his Graceland mansion in St.Tropeze and get serious about the music instead of the bottom line. Forecasts are not promising. The music industry is abuzz, that his next project under consideration is a tribute album to the legendary Harry Reser and the Clicquot Club Eskimos orchestra. It's being leaked on the web,that through the state of the studio art, Harry's instrumental tracks are being combined with newly created lyrics for many of his best selling tunes. The standouts include,"The Old Town Pump" and"Send Me Back My Honeyman".I have serious reservations concerning the project's success, particularly given the weak performances represented on the American Songbook Vol.3. However,hope springs eternal.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Only One Star for Rod
    Sorry, Rod, you're still not sexy. And if I had the choice, you wouldn't get any stars from me.
    1-0 out of 5 stars Not for the faint of heart
    I know this has been said before, but this music makes me want to throw up.How many of these records can he make?Are we going to be treated to 6, 7, 8?While they still sell, I suppose he would be crazy to turn down the big bucks.Who would have guessed this is how Rod Stewart would end up, a more or less faceless artist working for faceless music promoters?At least he's not playing fairs and beergardens like the hapless $tyx.From the Stars-on-45 Beatles disco medley, to Jive Bunny, to this peppy set, the repackaging of SOMEONE ELSE'S music for fun and profit has come a long way.I agree with the other reviewer who compared the creation of this CD with Napoleon's decision to invade Russia during the winter.After doing this many standards from the same era, I think he should start desecrating 80s tunes now, just to be different.

    Elvis Presley died too young; but his music and his gift to us will live forever. This CD boasts a whopping 30 number one hits recorded by Elvis. This is not merely an introduction to Elvis or a standard retrospective of his work; this CD is also a celebration of Elvis' talent and the wonder of Elvis sharing his artistry with all of us.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Elvis on Vinyl
    I always enjoyed listening to Elvis growing up. My parents were shattered when he died in August 1977. Mom especialy enjoyed Elvis and thru that enjoyment I grew up listening to him in our home. This compilation is an excellent package for seasoned fans as well as newcommers to enjoy the magical legacy that Elvis has given us
    5-0 out of 5 stars Very Talented Entertainer.
    As well as being the most successful performer of all time ,Elvis Presley is also the most ridiculed.In the end though, all that will matter is the musical legacyhe left behind. Of all the 800+ songs that he recorded there are only a handful that could be considered trash. As well as the standard hits which are found on this album , there is a abundance of rarer tracks to be found on box sets and the "Follow That Dream " BMG label which caters to the fans who have to have everything!. Elvis was probably the most versatile singer of all time and because of his willingness to try styles that other singers wouldnt even attempt , we are left with magical music to satisfy us for a long time to come.Long Live The King!!. ...

    3-0 out of 5 stars Okay, but Let It Be Naked is what you want...
    When George Martin was asked if he wanted his name as the producer of this album, he reffused. I can't blame him. The Beatles intended Get Back, or Let It Be, as it was finnished, to be pure rock without overdubs and that junk. Thanks to Phil Spector and his "Wall of Sound", this back to the basics album was ruined. Although it wasn't that good for beginers, some of these songs would have been better. Then,in 2003, the seldom played Let It Be Naked... was released, the way it was intended. If you want REAL Beatles' music, buy Let It Be Naked... and get your money's worth.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Beatles let loose
    I've always thought that the "Get Back" sessions were one of the most fascinating periods of the Beatles' history. The back-to-basics concept; the infighting; the iconic rooftop concert; the multiple attempts to create a finished album from dozens of songs and hours of aimless tapes; the treasure trove of bootleg material that surfaced years later. The album that finally did emerge from the sessions, "Let It Be," is as intriguing a document as any other produced by the band. The Beatles have such a reputation for perfectionism that it's refreshing to hear them let loose and bash out a few jams. And despite the palpable strain of the sessions (captured in the "Let It Be" film), their musical partnership was still strong and capable of producing amazing collaborative efforts.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent

    5-0 out of 5 stars Hy Zaret would have loved it.
    Hy Zaret, who wrote the words to "Unchained Melody" never like Bobby Hatfield's (Righteous Brothers) version of it because he "jazzed it up".So, I think he would have loved the way Barry Manilow sang it on this cd.By the way, for those of you, like me, who always wondered where "Unchained Melody" got its name, it was featured in the obscure 1955 prison movie, "Unchained".It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Song but lost out to another song on this cd, "Love Is A Many Splendored Thing".History aside, I like the way Barry Manilow presents these timeless classics.He sings them with the feeling and respect they deserve.It's much more than easy listening.It's a time capsule back to the '50's!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Barry ManiLOW...real low.........
    How did this guy ever get a recording contract? Not only is his singing style shmaltzy, but his voice is grating, whiney, and nasally. Besides being a self-admitted atheist and homosexual, he is a terrible singer. Very handsome, though. He looks like a cross between a giant mosquito and a Kangaroo who got into somebody's eye shadow and makeup kits. What an overrated wierdo. This guy had to have friends inside the industry. Manilow singing Tony Bennett or Bobby Darin is akin to Cedric the Entertainer playing Cary Grant or Clark Gable. In drag, no less.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Barry Avalonio
    I LOVE every song I've heard Barry perform and have never been disappointed. This album is no exception. He does an outstanding job with some great songs that bring back many memories of the '50s. There are 13 tracks of romantic "(mainly) slow" songs--great mood-music for having dinner, or dancing, with someone special.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Kinks - 'The Ultimate Collection' (Red X)
    The title of this 2-CD Kinks compilation says it all,'Ultimate Collection'.Total of 48 tracks for our listening pleasure. Sound quality is over the top, which is to say it is simply S-U-P-E-R-B! The FM radio hits you all have 'etched' in the back of your minds like I do are all here,like "You Really Got Me", "All Day And All Of The Night", "Tired Of Waiting For You" (my personal Kinks favorite), "Sunny Afternoon", the so-so "Come Dancing" (I like the video better than I do the song), "Lola"," Mr. Pleasant" and the unforgetable "Celluloid Heros". Just all around great British Invasion rock&roll. A must-have.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best of all the Kinks' greatest hits compilations
    This is a quality double CD that tracks the history of one of the most talented and influential groups ever, not just of the 60's and 70's. There are some great "B" sides with all of their major hits included. There are a few songs left out that, if included, would have made this an even better collection - Misfits, 20th Century Man, Destroyer, Low Budget come to mind. But the Kinks have such a vast repertoire' I guess only a boxed set of 3-4 CD's could contain the entire depth and span of their music that many of us would like. But this is a gem for what it is.

    5-0 out of 5 stars One Of The Best Compilations Ever For Any Band
    This cd, which I have been looking for for ages, is a truly awesome collection of all The Kinks' best stuff. These two discs contain just about everything you need if you only want one Kinks cd in your collection. Everything from "You Reallly Got Me" to "Lola" to "Celluloid Heroes" to "Come Dancing" and so much more is included. There's a great wealth of lesser known tracks (including some Dave Davies solo material) that are just as good as their biggest hits, there's a great essay for the liner notes and the sound quality is pitch perfect.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Strawberry Fields Forever
    As a progressive rock fan who happens to have an interest in the genre that extends beyond listening to albums by the major players themselves, e.g. Yes, Genesis, ELP, King Crimson etc., I have started exploring those psychedelic bands that gave rise to the progressive rock style, e.g. The Beatles.Although the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album (1967) is widely recognized to have laid the groundwork for prog, not to mention providing inspiration for English psychedelic/proto-prog bands such as the Moody Blues, Pink Floyd (debut album only), and even the Nice (debut album only), it is the Beatle's Magical Mystery Tour album (1967) that is a personal favorite.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Magical Mystery Tour is coming to take you away...
    Not my personal favorite Beatle's album, but includes some of my favorite songs. The strongest tracks are "Strawberry Fields", "I am the Walrus","The Fool on the Hill", and "Hello Goodbye", but that's not saying that the others aren't any good. Even the weakest tracks like "Blue Jay Way" and "Flying" are still very acceptable. Fitting right in with the phscidelic era and "The Summer of Love", this album is a must for people who like good music. ... Read more
