5.0 out of 5 stars so many great songs, so many compilations 18 Jan 2005
Format:Audio CD
Engelbert is long overdue a three disc box set to contain some of the fantastic songs from the first dozen or so years of his nearly four decade long career, those melodies that hold so many memories, sung to perfection by "The King of Romance"; for now they are scattered among dozens of compilations, and to get all one's favorites means purchasing multitudes of compilations. Though practically all will include "Release Me", there are lesser know beauties that are "must haves". This is a terrific grouping, and the rarity on it is "Ten Guitars", and to a lesser extent "Everybody Knows (We're Through)", which is sung from a woman's point of view, and from his first "Release Me" LP, the wonderful Herman's Hermits hit "There's a Kind of Hush (All Over the World)", and "My World" (sometimes listed as "Il Mondo").
Also included is the song I could listen to for hours, "The Way it Used to Be", the exquisite "Les Bicyclettes de Belsize", and the waltz to end all waltzes, "The Last Waltz". These are all the original recordings, and the sound is O.K.
I wish the CD available to us in the US had this UK CD cover on it; definitely one of my Top 10 all time photos of Engelbert.
Total playing time is 43'19.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid Gold Greatest Hits 19 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
I suppose the beauty of music is embracing as many different styles as possible and appreciating them for what they are and not what the "Media Musos" suggest they represent. I have CDs ranging from The Who to Neil Diamond and Andrea Bocelli to The Marmalade. One day you're fashionable, the next "so dated and sad". Who says so? Those of us who are more concerned with "Street Cred. Image", the very people who probably listen to "Easy Listening" behind closed doors.

I grew up listening to the charts in the 60s, a time when there was such a variety of songs available, but the common thread was melody. The reason why so many lasted and became classics was because you never tired of them and you could instantly remember the tune and lyrics years later.

Engelbert always vied with Tom Jones during his career, and to many he was second best. However, if you look at the collection of songs he had a hit with and how many they sold; you'll be surprised to see he outsold Tom Jones many a time.

I only have one CD by Engelbert, and this is it. I couldn't wish for a better batch of songs, all delivered in that wonderful voice and some great arrangements. A key here is, they are the original recordings and all genuine quality offerings.

This CD is one I constantly re-discover and play it to death until I file it away again. Only to return to it time and time again. It never fails to put me in a great mood. As for the songs.........where do you start? "Am I that Easy to Forget", "Les Bicyclettes De Belsize", "Man Without Love" or "Way It Used To Be". There is so much on offer. Dramatic, uplifting and unashamed sentimentality.

I love this album, a joy to listen to...........and I don't care who knows!

5.0 out of 5 stars Is what it says on the cover. 19 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is probably the Engelbert cd that every fan has, and rightly so, all the original hits are here and ths cd is near perfection. It was my first Engelbert purchase on cd and it still gets a regular run out, and it never fails to lift my spirits. I will not list the tracks on offer, as every fan knows them back to front, just to say that this cd has a five star rating and is recommended. There is also a Spectrum release floating around titled "Release me" which has a nineteen song track listing on it, which I would urge Engelbert fans to search out, as it is good as this greatest hits package, and I have already reviewed and rated this cd as a further five star buy. If you have either of these two cds in your possession, you have a good start to any Engelbert collection. Yours, Mrs. M Walsh. "Maw".
