My girlfriend, who likes a bit of a singalong, asked me me to look out for an Al Jolson compilation. There were quite a few options on Amazon, but I'm very pleased that I picked this one. It has all of the best known classics, but also some new (to me) belters, like Blue River and You Are Too Beautiful. We also like the way that it spans Jolson's career; you can hear his voice deepening in later years.
Jolson's style can come across as hammy now, but we've all grown up with many of these songs, and the boy really gives it his all! These three discs are a treat and a bargain.
