All-Time Top 100 TV Themes

5.0 out of 5 stars All Time Top 100 TV Themes (2CDs): 100 original TV themes; not pop versions; good sound; great collection!, June 26 2016
POSITIVE POINTS:

1 There are many CDs on TV Themes. Some are not original versions. Some are pop versions. In this case, TeeVeeTunes (TVT) Records have given us their top 100 TV Themes, all original versions. TVT Records have released many similar TV Themes series in the past, and these CDS are simply treasures to keep.
2 The sound is very well remastered, with clean good recordings from the original TV series.
3 There is an 8-page booklet, containing details of each song, very informative. The front and back covers contained pictures of old TV sets. Very cute and nostalgic indeed.

NEGATIVE POINTS:

1 Which song should be included in the Top 100 is really up to the discretion of the producer. In this case, there are a few glaring omissions:
(1) Star Trek Theme
(2) Lost In Space Theme
(3) The Avengers Theme (British TV series, with John Steed and Emma Peel)
(4) Doctor Who Theme
(5) Golden Girls (Thank You For Being A Friend)
(6) 77 Sunset Strip Theme
(7) Dr. Kildare Theme
(8) Dr. Ben Casey Theme
(9) Mannix Theme
Just to name a few. Fortunately, the above themes are found in previously released TVT CDs.
2 Although there are 50 songs on each CD, the time occupied was only slightly over 50 minutes. Surely, TVT Records could have filled in the remaining empty space on each CD with more tunes.

FINAL THOUGHTS:

This is the most updated TV Themes collection to date, with 100 tunes. Most collections are single CD with 20-50 songs. The sound is excellent. Listening to these original themes really bring back many happy memories of days gone by watching those beloved series. This set is very highly recommended.

PS. In all my reviews, I always list the entire song listing. In this case, the song listing is rather long and I purposely leave that to the end, so that in case you are not interested, you don’t have to waste time going through it. If you want to know just how great this set is, please read on:

5.0 out of 5 stars Chris Barber Complete Decca Sessions 54/55 (2CDs): 29 songs; 12 studio versions; 17 live versions; good sound., June 23 2016
CONTENT:

“The Complete Decca Sessions 1954/55” by Chris Barber’s Jazz Band, released by Lake Records from UK in 2000, is a 2-CD set, with first disc devoted to studio recordings (12 songs), and second disc devoted to the live sessions (17 songs). I have compiled a detailed song listing (including singles label & number, chart position, year of release)(UK=UK Singles Chart):

DISC 1 (STUDIO SESSIONS):
01 BOBBY SHAFTOE (Decca F-10492)(uncharted UK a-side, March 1955)

17 THE WORLD IS WAITING FOR THE SUNRISE (Decca FJ-10724)(UK b-side, April 1956)

POSITIVE POINTS:

1 Chris Barber started his charting career on Decca label. This set represents the most complete coverage of his output during that time. As noted above, there are many rare singles, making their CD debut.
2 The sound is well remastered.
3 There is a 16-page booklet, with an informative essay by Paul Adams. LP labels and rare pictures and posters are included.

NEGATIVE POINT:

1 During the Decca era, I notice that Chris Barber also recorded on Memory Jazz, Storyville, Metronome and Tempo labels. All the singles should have been included to make this set more complete.
2 No label & number are included.

COMPLETE SINGLES DISCOGRAPHY:

Chris Barber has 3 charted singles on UK Singles Chart. I have just finished compiling a Complete Singles Discography, and found that he actually has 71 singles from 1952 to 1985 (charted & uncharted, As & Bs from different countries). His main labels are (1) Memory Jazz (1952), (2) Decca (1954 – 1956), (3) Pye (1957 – 1960), (4) Columbia (1960 – 1966), (5) Marmalade (1967 – 1969), (6) RCA Victor (1970), (7) Black Lion (1976), (8) Ultra (1977), and (9) Sonet (1976 – 1985).

FINAL THOUGHTS:

Chris Barber was born Donald Christopher 'Chris' Barber on April 17 1930. He is a British jazz musician, best known as a bandleader and trombonist. As well as scoring a UK top twenty trad jazz hit, he helped the careers of many musicians, notably the blues singer Ottilie Patterson, who was at one time his wife, and vocalist/banjoist Lonnie Donegan, whose appearances with Barber triggered the skiffle craze of the mid-1950s and who had his first transatlantic hit, "Rock Island Line", while with Chris Barber's band.

Chris Barber’s recording career can be divided into three major labels. For his early Decca output, the current set is recommended. For his Pye era, surprisingly, the 2CD set of “Pye Anthology” is inadequate and not complete. For his later Columbia Records era, I would highly recommend “The Best of Chris Barber” (EMI, 2002, 1CD, 22 songs)(be careful there are many collection with that title out there) and “Jazz Band Favourites” (EMI Gold, 1991, 1CD, 22 songs). The best overall set belongs to “Absolutely Essential Collection” (Big 3, 3CDs, 60 songs, 2015, covering 1954-1962).

If you like his early output, this set fits the bill. The entire set is totally enjoyable, and is highly recommended to all Chris Barber and jazz fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nancy Wilson: Best of: Jazz & Blues Sessions (1CD): 18 rare album tracks; good sound; not a Greatest Hits CD, June 23 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
CONTENT:

“The Best of Nancy Wilson: the Jazz & Blues Sessions”, released by Capitol Records (US) in 1996, contains 18 album tracks. I have compiled a detailed song listing (including album label & number, chart position and year of release)(BB200=Billboard Album Chart):

01 LIKE SOMEONE IN LOVE*from album “Tender Loving Care” (Capitol 2555)(BB200 35/1966)
02 I WISH I DIDN’T LOVE YOU SO*from album “Nancy, Naturally” (Capitol 2634)(BB200 35/1967)
03 DEARLY BELOVED*from album “Hollywood – My Way” (Capitol 1934)(BB200 11/1963)
04 JUST FOR A THRILL*from album “Nancy, Naturally” (Capitol 2634)(BB200 35/1967)
05 I’VE GOT YOUR NUMBER*from album “From Broadway With Love” (Capitol 2433)(BB200 44/1966)
06 IN A SENTIMENTAL MOOD*from album “But Beautiful” (Capitol 798)(BB200 185/1971)
07 GETTING TO KNOW YOU*from album “Broadway – My Way” (Capitol 1828)(BB200 18/1963)
08 CALL IT STORMY MONDAY*from album “Something Wonderful” (Capitol ST 1440)(1960)
09 HE’S MY GUY* from album “Something Wonderful” (Capitol ST 1440)(1960)
10 YOU’RE GONNA HEAR FROM ME*from album “A Touch of Today” (Capitol 2495)(BB200 15/1966)
11 PEOPLE*from album “How Glad I Am” (Capitol 2155)(BB200 4/1964)
12 SUFFERIN’ WITH THE BLUES*from album “Yesterday’s Love Songs – Today’s Blues” (Capitol 2012)(BB200 4/1964)
13 WAVE*from album “Easy” (Capitol 2909)(BB200 51/1968)
14 UNCHAIN MY HEART*from album “Today, Tomorrow, Forever” (Capitol 2082)(BB200 10/1964)
15 NEVER WILL I MARRY*from album “Nancy Wilson/Cannonball Adderley” (Capitol ST 1657)(BB200 30/1961)
16 GREEN DOLPHIN STREET*from album “The Swingin’s Mutual” (with George Shearing)(Capitol ST 1524)(1961)
17 YOU DON’T KNOW ME*from album “Welcome to My Love” (Capitol 2844)(BB200 115/1968)
18 A GOOD MAN IS HARD TO FIND*from album “Hello Young Lovers” (Capitol ST 1767)(BB200 49/1962)

POSITIVE POINTS:

1 This is a decent collection of 18 memorable album tracks of Nancy Wilson. Some of the above mentioned albums are quite expensive on CDs, like “How Glad I Am”, “Tender Loving Care” and “From Broadway with Love.” I personally bought this CD for those songs.
2 The sound is good, but nothing spectacular.
3 There is a 6-page fold-out booklet, with the usual informative essay by Will Friedwald. The names of source albums were clearly identified.

NEGATIVE POINT:

1 Only 18 songs. This was probably acceptable standard in 1996.

FINAL THOUGHTS:

Beware, this CD is NOT a Greatest Hits of Nancy Wilson, despite of the title as The Best Of. If you are looking for her true Best Of or Greatest Hits, I would recommend “Anthology” (Capitol, 2CDs. 30 songs, 2000).
Nancy Wilson is basically an album artist. I am in the process of collecting all her albums on CDs. This set is still a welcome addition to my Nancy Wilson album library. This entire set is still enjoyable and is recommended to all Nancy Wilson fans.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bob Dylan Fallen Angels (1CD): Bob’s 37th studio albums performing 12 old classics of yesteryears; poor sound., June 23 2016
This review is from: Fallen Angels (Audio CD)
CONTENT:

“Fallen Angels” by Bob Dylan, released by Columbia Records in 2016, was his 37th studio album. I have compiled a detailed song listing (including album label & number, year of release and names of artists of the original versions plus chart positions)(BB200=Billboard Album Chart; UK=UK Album Chart; US=US Singles prior to 1955; BB Pop=Billboard Hot 100):

LP “FALLEN ANGELS” (Bob Dylan)(Columbia 530802)(BB200 7/2016; UK 5/2016):
01 Young At Heart (2:53)*original version by Frank Sinatra (US 2/1954)
02 Maybe You'll Be There (2:50)*original version by Gordon Jenkins (US 3/1948)
03 Polka Dots And Moonbeams (3:30)*original version by Tommy Dorsey (US 18/1940); first hit vocal by Frank Sinatra
04 All The Way (3:58)*original version by Frank Sinatra (BB Pop 2/1958)
05 Skylark (2:51)*original version by Dinah Shore (US 5/1942)
06 Nevertheless (3:22)*original version by Jack Denny (US 5/1931); Frank Sinatra (US 14/1950)
07 All Or Nothing At All (3:00)*original version by Frank Sinatra & Harry James (US 1/1943)
08 On A Little Street in Singapore (2:10)*original version by Jimmy Dorsey (US 13/1940); Frank Sinatra with Harry James (US 27/1944)
09 It Had To Be You (3:56)*original version by Isham Jones (US 1/1924)
10 Melancholy Mood (2:49)*original version by Artie Shaw (US 8/1939)
11 That Old Black Magic (3:01)*original version by Glenn Miller (US 1/1943)
12 Come Rain Or Come Shine (2:36)*original version by Margaret Whiting (US 17/1946)

POSITIVE POINT:

1 Following the footsteps of Rod Stewart and Tony Bennett, Bob Dylan presented to us her husky version of old classics, although all been sung by Frank Sinatra, but in some cases, his versions were not the original versions. The restrained picking and creamy pedal-steel guitar of his live band imposes a smooth but demotic country mood behind Dylan’s elegant, world-weary croon. His voice may be husky and damaged from decades of performing, but there’s beauty to its character.

NEGATIVE POINTS:

1 I am very disappointed by the digital remastering of all the songs in this disc. As the matter of fact, there was probably no additional remastering at all. Being a remasterer myself, I would rip the songs onto my computer, and the wav files reminded me of those efforts from the early days of compact discs in the 80s where the tracks were simply laid down as was, with no remastering at all. And this is the case with this set. You probably have to turn the volume up to hear the details.
2 Only 12 songs.

FINAL THOUGHTS:

Being a Bob Dylan fan, I would buy any CD release by him. Being an old-timer, I personally have the original versions of all the songs above and quite familiar with them, plus old Frank’s versions. I personally prefer the original versions. The poor sound with lack of remastering is a big minus and major disappointment. Fortunately for myself, I have remastered all the songs and now they sound like what they originally should. I would not recommend if you are not a Bob Dylan fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nancy Wilson & Ramsey Lewis: Meant To Be (1CD): 2nd collaboration; 11 songs; good sound, June 23 2016
This review is from: Meant To Be (Audio CD)
CONTENT:

“Meant To Be” by Nancy Wilson & Ramsey Lewis, released by Narada Jazz in 2002, contains 11 songs. I have compiled a detailed song listing (including album label & number, year of release):

LP “MEANT TO BE” (Nancy Wilson & Ramsey Lewis)(Narada Jazz 50774)(2002):
01 Peel Me A Grape
02 Truthfully
03 Did I Ever Really Live
04 Velvet Night
05 A Moment Alone
06 Moondance
07 Meant To Be
08 Piano In The Dark
09 Time Peace
10 First Time Love
11 Tanquissimo

POSITIVE POINTS:

1 This is the second collaboration between Nancy Wilson & Ramsey Lewis, following their very successful “The Two of Us” in 1984 (CD still very expensive now). In 2001, Nancy Wilson performed at Chicago’s famed Ravinia Festival. Ramsey Lewis, the festival’s Artistic Director of Jazz, was chatting backstage with her. They both agreed that they should do something together. “Meant To Be” is the result. Songs composed by Van Morrison, Brenda Russell and Patti Austin were used. The majority of the songs were composed by Ramsey Lewis himself.
2 The sound is very well remastered using 24-bit technology.
3 There is an 8-page fold-out booklet, outlining the personnel. A forward by Nancy Wilson was included.

NEGATIVE POINT:

None.

FINAL THOUGHTS:

This is Nancy’s 62nd domestic album release. Her next release is also with Ramsey Lewis, called “Simple Pleasures.” I am in the process of collecting all of Nancy’s albums on CDs. This set is totally enjoyable with great sound, and is a welcome addition to my Nancy Wilson album library. This set is of course highly recommended to all Nancy Wilson and jazz fans.

This review is from: Take My Love (Audio CD)
CONTENT:

“Take My Love” by Nancy Wilson, released on LP by Capitol Records in 1980 and now finally released on CD by SoulMusic Records from UK in 2013. I have compiled a detailed song listing (including album and single label & number, year of release):

LP “TAKE MY LOVE” (Nancy Wilson)(Capitol 12055)(1980):
01 Take My Love
02 Someone Else
03 Welcome Home (Capitol 4839)(b-side, 1980)
04 The Sadness In My Eyes
05 Let’s Hold On To Love (Capitol 4839)(uncharted a-side, 1980)
06 I Loved You All The Time
07 Not Afraid to Love (live)
08 I’m Coming Home (live)
09 Bows (live)

POSITIVE POINTS:

1 In this set, Nancy Wilson reunited with co-producers Larry Farrow and Carolyn Johns, shifting the focus from dance music to radio-pop with lyrical themes that more often touched upon the shadier realities of romance. The set is also making its CD debut.
2 The sound is well remastered.
3 There is a 16-page booklet, with an informative essay by A. Scott Galloway. The album front and back covers are in full displayed, each occupying an entire page. The LP labels are also included.

NEGATIVE POINT:

1 There are no bonus tracks.

FINAL THOUGHTS:

This set was Nancy’s 45th album and her final album release on Capitol. The last three songs in this album were specifically designed to record in front of a live audience in the large Capitol “Studio A” with a fifty-one piece orchestra. The entire set was enjoyable. I am in the process of collecting all her albums on CDs. This set is a welcome addition to my Nancy Wilson album library, and is recommended to all Nancy Wilson fans.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
CONTENT:

“Kaleidoscope/I Know I Love Him” by Nancy Wilson, released by SoulMusic Records from UK in 2013, contains 2 complete charted Capitol albums. I have compiled a detailed song listing (including album and singles label & number, chart position, year of release)(BB200=Billboard Album Chart):

LP “KALEIDOSCOPE” (Nancy Wilson)(Capitol 852)(BB200 151/1971):
01 The Greatest Performance Of My Life (Capitol 3212)(uncharted a-side, 1971)*rare gem; CD debut; became a staple of her concerts; big hit by Shirley Bassey
02 If I Were Your Woman*big hit by Gladys Knight
03 I’ll Get Along Somehow
04 Middle of the Road
05 Let It Be Me*big hit by Everly Brothers and Betty Everett & Jerry Butler
06 To Be The One You Love (from film “The Anonymous Venetian”)
07 Mr. Bojangles*big hit by Sammy Davis Jr.
08 Ain’t No Sunshine*big hit by Bill Withers
09 Everyone Knows (Capitol 3212)(b-side, 1971)*rare gem; CD debut
10 Once In My Lifetime*big hit by Harry Belafonte

13 Don’t Misunderstand*originally sung by O.C. Smith for movie “Shaft’s Big Score”
14 Are We Losing Touch (Capitol 3540)(uncharted a-side, February 1971)*rare gem; CD debut
15 I Was Telling Him About You
16 Easy Evil
17 The Laughter and the Tears
18 Can I
19 I Heard You Singing Your Song
20 I Know I Love Him

POSITIVE POINTS:

1 Thanks to SoulMusic Records, these two fantastic albums are making their CD debut. All the songs reflect Nancy’s unique vocal style, ranging from dynamic peak in “The Greatest Performance of My Life” to gentle ballad in “The Laughter and the Tears”, capturing the hopeless feelings of lovelorn and lonesomeness when you can never forget someone you love who is no longer there and never coming back.
2 The sound is wonderfully remastered, as per usual high standards at SoulMusic Records.
3 There is a wonderful 20-page booklet, with an informative essay by A. Scott Galloway, plus liner notes from both albums. The front and back album covers of both albums are clearly displayed, each occupying an entire page. Good job, SoulMusic Records, and thank you. Labels and numbers are included.

NEGATIVE POINT:

1 There are no bonus tracks.

FINAL THOUGHTS:

“Kaleidoscope” and “I Know I Love Him” were Nancy’s 35th and 37th domestic album releases respectively. Both albums showcase the singer at the top of her jazzy easy listening form, gliding effortlessly through carefully selected songs she knew she could leave her timeless classy stamp upon, to be discovered by generation after generation. I personally am in the process of collecting all of her albums on CDs, and this set is certainly a welcome addition to my Nancy Wilson album library. This twofer, with both great performance and sound, is highly recommended to all Nancy Wilson fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tragically Hip That Night in Toronto (DVD): fantastic concert in 2004 Air Canada Centre; 24 songs; great performance and sound!, June 21 2016
INTRODUCTION:

The Tragically Hip, often referred to simply as The Hip, are a Canadian rock band from Kingston, Ontario, consisting of lead singer Gordon Downie, guitarist Paul Langlois, guitarist Rob Baker (known as Bobby Baker until 1994), bassist Gord Sinclair, and drummer Johnny Fay. Since their formation in 1984 they have released 13 studio albums, two live albums, 1 EP, and 54 singles. Nine of their albums have reached No. 1 in Canada. They have received numerous Canadian Music awards, including 14 Juno Awards (Canadian equivalent to the “Grammys”. “That Night in Toronto” was filmed at the Air Canada Centre on November 26, 2014.

VIDEO:

“That Night in Toronto” arrives on DVD with 1.85:1 widescreen. The transfer was good, with sharp images. Colour was subdued. The stage was quite plain and black and white. (3/5)

AUDIO:

“That Night in Toronto” arrives on DVD with Dolby Digital 5.1 or PCM 5.1. I chose DD 5.1. The sound was excellent. Gordon Downie’s vocal was the main feature, while all the guitar notes and drum beats were clearly heard. (4/5)

CONCERT:

This concert has 24 songs. I have compiled a detailed song listing (including chart positions of singles and names of source albums):
01 Vaccination Scar (CAN 5/2004)*from album "In Between Evolution" (2004)
02 Fully Completely (CAN 65/1993)*from album "Fully Completely" (1993)
03 Grace, Too (CAN 11/1994)*from album "Day For Night" (1994)
04 Summer's Killing Us (uncharted single, 2004)*from album "In Between Evolution" (2004)
05 Ahead By A Century (CAN 1/1996)*from album "Trouble at the Henhouse" (1996)
06 Silver Jet (CAN 3/2002)*from album "In Violet Light" (2002)
07 As Makeshift As We Are*from album "In Between Evolution" (2004)
08 Courage (for Hugh MacLennan)(CAN 10/1993)*from album "Fully Completely" (1993)
09 Bobcaygeon (CAN 3/1999)*from album "Phantom Power" (1998)
10 Nautical Disaster (CAN 26/1995)*from album "Day For Night" (1994)
11 Gus: The Polar Bear From Central Park*from album "In Between Evolution" (2004)
12 Poets (CAN 4/1998)*from album "Phantom Power" (1998)
13 At The Hundredth Meridian (CAN 18/1993)*from album "Fully Completely" (1993)
14 It Can't Be Nashville Every Night (uncharted single, 2004)*from album "In Between Evolution" (2004)
15 My Music at Work (CAN 47/2000)*from album "Music @ Work" (2000)
16 New Orleans Is Sinking (CAN 70/1989)*from album "Up To Here" (1989)
17 Heaven Is A Better Place Today*from album "In Between Evolution" (2004)
18 It's A Good Life If You Don't Weaken (CAN 5/2002)*from album "In Violet Light" (2002)
19 Little Bones (CAN 11/1991)*from album "Road Apples" (1991)
20 Gift Shop (CAN 4/1996)*from album "Trouble at the Henhouse" (1996)
21 Springtime in Vienna (CAN 11/1997)*from album "Trouble at the Henhouse" (1996)
22 Three Pistols (CAN 59/1991)*from album "Road Apples" (1991)
23 Boots Or Hearts (CAN 47/1990)*from album "Up To Here" (1989)
24 Blow At High Dough (CAN 48/1989)*from album "Up To Here" (1989)

My favourites were “Bobcaygeon””At the Hundredth Meridian” and “Ahead by A Century.” The interviews with the audience during the rolling of the end credits were us a true appreciation as to how great the show was and how good a live band the Hip was.

The Concert (5+/5)

FINAL THOUGHTS:

It is indeed very sad news that Gord Downie was discovered to have terminal brain cancer, when the Hip was planning their 2016 Canadian Tour. The tour would still proceed, but the sour note was that most of the tickets were scooped up by scalpers and resold at 2000% profit. Additional show was added at the Air Canada Centre in August 2016, and with the redesign of the stage, more seats were available. I was not the fortunate one to get a ticket for the three shows at ACC. I hope a high definition blu-ray disc will be released in the future, and hopefully the concert will also feature all their many singles and memorable album tracks. This is a fitting tribute to this great Canadian Rock N Roll Band!!

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Yesterday's Love Songs (Audio CD)
CONTENT:

“Yesterday’s Love Songs/Today’s Blues” by Nancy Wilson, released by Capitol Records in 1964 and on CDs in 1991, contains the complete charted Capitol album, plus 5 rare bonus tracks. I have compiled a detailed song listing (including album and singles label & number, chart position, year of release)(BB200=Billboard Album Chart; BB Pop=Billboard Hot 100):

LP “YESTERDAY’S LOVE SONGS/TODAY’S BLUES” (Nancy Wilson (Capitol 2012)(BB200 4/1964):
01 The Song Is You
02 The Very Thought Of You
03 Satin doll
04 Bewitched
05 Sufferin’ With The Blues
06 Someone to Watch Over Me
07 The Best Is Yet to Come (Capitol 5408)(b-side, April 1965)
08 Never Let Me Go
09 Send Me Yesterday
10 All My Tomorrow
11 Please Send Me Someone to Love
12 Blue Prelude
BONUS TRACKS:
13 What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve? (Capitol 5084)(b-side, November 1963)*rare gem
14 The Show Goes On*from album “How Glad I Am” (Capitol 2155)(BB200 4/1964); rare gem; CD debut
15 West Coast Blues*from album “How Glad I Am” (Capitol 2155)(BB200 4/1964)
16 Tell Me The Truth (Capitol 4991)(a-side, BB Pop 73/June 1963)
17 The Sweet Thing (Capitol 4991)(b-side, June 1963)*rare gem; CD debut

POSITIVE POINTS:

1 If you like this album, this CD is the only source to get it. There is no twofer. It is her 8th domestic album release, and has the highest charting position on Billboard Album Chart (same as “How Glad I Am” later that year). This album marked the climax and conclusion of the (Nancy) Wilson/Wilson (Gerald Wilson, the arranger & orchestra) partnership. There are many outstanding pieces, like “Never Let Me Go”, the most emotionally soaring piece, and “The Best Is Yet To Come”, that predates Sinatra and Basie.
2 There are 5 rare bonus tracks, three rare singles, with one still making CD debut in 2016, and two others from her most well known album “How Glad I Am” (for some unknown reasons, still not reissued and now still very expensive).
3 The sound is very well remastered from original three-track master tapes. It was pointed out that a scratch sound on the vocal make early in “Never Let Me Go” was on the original recording.
4 There is a 6-page fold-out booklet, with an informative essay by Will Friedwald. Details about personnel on each song were included. The front cover of the booklet represents the original album front cover.

NEGATIVE POINTS:

1 The rare a-side of “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve”, being “That’s What I Want For Christmas”, should have been included as bonus track.
2 The album back cover should have been included in the booklet too. I know I’m asking too much.

FINAL THOUGHTS:

“Yesterday’s Love Songs/Today’s Blues” was her 8th domestic album release. The entire album, with great sound, is totally enjoyable. The bonus tracks were simply icing on the cake. I am in the process of collecting every Nancy Wilson release, and this CD is indeed a very welcome addition to my Nancy Wilson album library. This set is very highly recommended to all Nancy Wilson fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars John McCormack Collection (5CDs): 120 songs 1906-42; his entire career; many rare gems CD debut; good sound; a Must-Own!!!, June 17 2016
POSITIVE POINTS:

1 If you are a John McCormack fan, rejoice! Acrobat Music has compiled this 5-CD set with 120 songs, spanning his career from 1906 to 1942 when he retired, in one single set. Of course, there are many rare gems, many making their CD debut.
2 The songs are, more or less, sequenced chronologically.
3 This set covers his earliest acoustic recordings for Odeon in 1906, through acoustic recordings for HMV and Victor into the 1920s, and then electric recordings for the same labels up to 1942. Considering the age of many of the above recordings, the sound is excellent, as per high standards at Acrobat Music.
4 Although he has 73 charted songs, I was simply amazed at just how big his discography is. You will know what I mean when you visit his society’s website in UK. I painstakingly extracted the label & number plus chart position to demonstrate just how popular a singer he was. No fillers here. It should be noted that there were no b-sides on 78s until 1924.
5 As usual, there is an excellent booklet, with an informative essay by Paul Watts. High marks are given to the efforts in putting the labels & numbers in, both US & UK, Victor & HMV. Great job!!

NEGATIVE POINT:

1 There are glaring omissions of five charted a-sides:
(1) Kathleen Mavourneen (Victor 74236)(a-side, US 3(1)/1911)*using the 1927 version on disc 4 does not count
(2) Aida – O terra addio (with Lucy Isabelle Marsh)(Victor 74398)(a-side, US 9/1915)
(3) Evening Song (Victor 64496)(a-side, US 8/1915)
(4) Crucifix (with Reinald Werrenrath)(Victor 64712)(a-side, US 6/1917)
(5) When You And I Were Seventeen (Victor 1086)(a-side, US 5/1925)

FINAL THOUGHTS:

John McCormack was born on June 14, 1884 in Athlone, Ireland. He was the legendary tenor singer. He became an American sensation in 1910, and was so popular that he largely abandoned opera to concentrate on solo concert performances. Along with Enrico Caruso, he firmly established the value of commercial recordings in the United States. He died on September 16, 1945 (age 61).

My own original reference was “I Hear You Calling Me” (Living Era, 2CDs, 50 songs). There are also “John McCormack Collection” (Naxos, 11 volumes). There are still many missing tunes. Now, thanks to Acrobat Music, this 5 CD set is my dreams come true. I consider this set one of the most important releases in 2016 and is very highly recommended.

PS I purposely leave the song listing to the end because of its extensive length. If you really want to know just how fantastic a singer he is, please read on (US=US Singles Chart prior to 1955, according to Joey Whitburn’s Pop Memories book):
