5.0 out of 5 stars Great American songbook 15 April 2011
By cicero
Format:Audio CD
For those who remember the good old days when singers needed to have talent (Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Bing Crosby, Sarah Vaughan et al) and lyricists had poetry in their soul (Gershwin, Porter, Berlin, Mercer et al), this compilation is a must. Very reasonably priced for so much pleasure and nostalgia. There are one or two horrors, though, e.g. Doris Day (is it really her?) singing Hernando's Hideaway, and the appearance of Shirley Bassey (don't associate her with the greatest American songs). You must buy, 100 great songs at such a great price for 5 CDs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Did the American Songbook end in the 50's? 9 Aug 2010
By Gandalf
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
All the oldies but goldies & a few obscure tracks thrown in for good measure.
Sinatra, Crosby, Davis, Armstrong, Day, Astair etc etc, they are all here.Most of the tracks never made it to the British charts, but will still be familiar to most listeners.
At £5.99 for 100 tracks, you can't really complain I suppose, but (forget everything before the 'but') 'Hernando's Hideaway' is credited to Doris Day, but there is another female voice too (+ male chorus) not credited on this track (that's soundtracks for you!), and I didn't know Shirley Bassey had honourary American citizenship (anybody told the Welsh?)
Having said that, if you're into schmaltz, nostalgia or time-warps, or want a present for Grandad, you could do a lot worse than this set.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good oldies for an oldie. 5 Aug 2012
By Derfla
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
My first concern was that being oldies, most of the tracks would make my i phone sound cheap. Hallelua - they are all fine and I rate the download as very good value for money.
