5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent budget collection
Compiled from recordings spanning a period from the 1930s to the 1950s, with the occasional track either side of that, this collection features 75 tracks that sound great; no problem there despite their age. Some of these tracks were hits for the artists performing them here, who weren't always the original artists. in some cases, the hits featured here are more famous...

2.0 out of 5 stars Great American Songbook
It was cheap and I can see why after hearing some of the tracks- not many 'Great American Songs' here

This review is from: The Great American Songbook Volume 2 (Audio CD)
Compiled from recordings spanning a period from the 1930s to the 1950s, with the occasional track either side of that, this collection features 75 tracks that sound great; no problem there despite their age. Some of these tracks were hits for the artists performing them here, who weren't always the original artists. in some cases, the hits featured here are more famous than the originals, for example Love letters (Ketty Lester), I remember you (Frank Ifield), At last (Etta James) and When I fall in love (Nat King Cole) to name some.

There are plenty of surprises, notably the Andrews Sisters, who are represented by The Japanese sandman (not one of their most famous recordings, but great to find it here), Connie Francis, also not represented by one of her famous hits, but by Ac-cent-chu-ate the positive.

Overall, I was already familiar with most of the songs, so the surprises were mainly limited to the versions selected for inclusion. For the price I paid, this was an excellent bargain.
