"The Collection" is a welcome addition to the Whitman line up of cd's available. I particularly enjoyed some of the lesser known versions of Slim's songs. For example, the opening track Rose Marie, this version was recorded but never released and thanks to Paul Hazel, the albums compiler, is now available to Whitman fans. Many other great songs are included and I must say how good it is to be able to purchase on cd Slim's later uptempo version of When My Blue Moon Turns To Gold Again. There are also other songs included from the late 1970's which appear to be on cd now for the first time. This cd The Collection presents excellent value!!

THIS IS A VERY WELCOME COLLECTION OF SLIM WHITMANS LATER RECORDINGS ,MAINLY FROM THE LATE 60s/70s,THIS IS A DOUBLE CD WITH 58 TRACKS ,MAKING THIS EXECELLENT VALUE FOR THE PRICE.
THIS COLLECTION HAS MANY OF SLIMS BIGGEST HITS MAINLY RE-RECORDED IN THE 70s,MANY OF THE BIG HITS FOR THE 15TH ANNIVERSARY ALBUM,WHICH ARE SO HARD TO FIND ON CD,THIS SET ALSO INCLUDES SLIMS UP-TEMPO VERSION OF WHEN MY BLUE MOON TURNS TO GOLD AGAIN ,RECORDED IN 1969.
ALSO ON THIS SET YOU WILL FIND SLIMS VERSION OF THE WESTERN SONG ,RED WING,AND THE VERY HARD TO FIND VERSION OF COOL WATER COMPLETE WITH STRINGS AND CHORUS ,THIS RECORDING HAS ELUDED MOST FANS FOR DECADES.
THERE ARE MANY OTHER RARE SONGS AND RERECORDINGS THAT SLIM MADE IN THE 70s WHEN HE WAS ENJOYING A COMEBACK .IF YOU ARE A TRUE COLLECTOR OF SLIMS MUSIC YOU WILL ALREADY HAVE THE 2 BEAR FAMILY BOX SETS WHICH GIVE YOU ALL THE SINGLES AND ALBUMS HE MADE IN THE LATE 40s THROUGH TO THE LATE 60s SO THIS SET WILL BE A WELCOME ADDITION TO YOUR COLLECTION.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on 1 Jun 2009
Format: Audio CD
Ever since he topped the British charts in 1955 with Rose Marie, Slim Whitman has always been much more popular in Britain than in his homeland. In the CD era, there has never been a lot of his music available simultaneously, if you exclude the brilliant but expensive Bear Family boxed sets. However, a steady stream of compilations, together with a few original albums, have been released at mire affordable prices, so it has been possible to build up a fair collection of his music for a more modest financial outlay. There are not many songs that absolutely have to be included on a Slim Whitman collection, leaving compilers plenty of scope to select tracks not previously released on CD, should they wish to do so. Of course, there is bound to be some duplication with earlier CD compilations, and not just with the obvious tracks, but with as many as 58 tracks on this budget-priced double CD, there are bound to be plenty of tracks that you haven't already got on CD.

Slim Whitman had eight hits in the British pop charts, all of which are included here in some form. It seems that the versions included here of China doll, I'm a fool, Serenade, I'll take you home again Kathleen, Tumbling tumbleweeds and Happy anniversary are the original versions but Rose Marie and Indian love call are re-recorded versions. The compiler also selected a 1964 version of Love song of the waterfall, another Slim Whitman classic, instead of the original. But don't worry about these re-recordings, as they are very much in the minority here and in any case, they still sound brilliant.

The songs cover the full range of material that Slim recorded except for Christmas music (hopefully somebody will one day provide a CD compilation of his Christmas music; he did at least three Christmas albums).

14 of 15 people found the following review helpful By The Country Grumpkin VINE VOICE on 22 Feb 2007
Format: Audio CD
First, the good news. This 2-disc collection of 58 of some of the best-known songs from Slim's vast repertoire, totalling two and a half hours' playing time, is clearly good value at this price. He's in good voice, and any such compilation must be worth a 3-star rating. Now the not-so-good. In my view, this does not constitute a 'best of' collection by any means. There's a very nice booklet with the collection, with an overview of Slim's long career, and a good deal of interesting information about the great man, and you could easily get the impression that the older songs here, including 'Rose Marie', 'China Doll', 'Serenade' and 'Indian Love Call' for example, first recorded in his classic '50s heyday, are the actual recordings from that time (ie., the Imperial/London American versions). That is, until you hear the very first song on disc one, which happens to be 'Rose Marie'. Not so. All these songs are copyrighted by Capitol Records, and therefore include a number of re-recordings. Caveat emptor - 'the cave is empty'. With that in mind, you can make your choice. Unfortunately, and in my opinion, there doesn't seem to be a single - or even 2-disc - collection available that does represent Slim's very best from the classic years. And not everyone wants to go as far as buying the Bear Family set - excellent as it may be. Nevertheless, this is very good for what it is.
