If you are a big fan of Ken Dodd's music then this CD is for you. 24 original hit singles. It shows all of his best UK hit singles from 1963 to 1975 it is kind of an definitive collection of the EMI years and it is fantastic. From happiness which was a top 50 hit in 1964, tears which was number 1 for 5 weeks in 1965, promises which was a number 6 hit in 1966, to wherever you are which went to number 21 in 1975. Trust me costumers your money will be well spent on the very best of Ken Dodd. This is the only CD to find all of his original hits

This funny man is perhaps best well known for his comedy shows which, alas, do not contain enough of his excellent songs. This CD contains many of his most popular songs from many years back and is simply lovely to listen to. Even if you are not familiar with the music of Ken Dodd you could not fail to enjoy this CD at an extremely good price. This man surely brings pleasure to so many and here you can appreciate the musical talent which has entertained so many people over so many years.

The funnyman from knotty ash is 100% perfection of this album.
This will take you from Happiness to Tears in this wonderful of origional recordings.
Although missing ' Love is Like a Violin ' and ' Hold My Hand '7
and novelty recordings such as ' Come and join us ' ' Nikky Nakky Noo ' and ' We are the Diddymen' for an excellent price put this on and you'll never want to take it off

By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 22 April 2004
Format: Audio CD
Ken was best known as a comedian but in the sixties he made some wonderful, easy listening pop music and had a string of British hits. Very few reached the top ten but his style appealed to fewer people than the music of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones so that's no surprise. There are no novelty songs here - this is straight music of the highest quality.
He had three hits for Decca including Love is like a violin, which made the UK top ten, but those hits are not here. This compilation focuses on his most important years as a singer, with what is now EMI but was then Columbia (confusing, because the American Columbia label was a completely different label and is now part of Sony).

Ken's first three hits for Columbia (Still, Eight by ten, Happiness) were all covers of songs written by Bill Anderson, a top country songwriter of the sixties who also had significant success as a singer. All of them made the UK top 40 although none made the top 20. Of course, there's no hint of their origins in Ken's versions, with their orchestral backing. After those songs, Ken only had one more hit with a cover of a country song. Just out of reach, recorded by Patsy Cline in 1958, became a top thirty UK hit for Ken in 1972.

By far Ken's biggest hit, Tears, spent several weeks at number one in the UK charts of 1965 and was one of the best-selling UK singles that year. The two singles that followed it (The river, Promises) both made the top ten but there were to be no more top ten hits for Ken after that.

Ken's other hits here are So deep is the night, More than love, It's love, Let me cry on your shoulder, Tears won't wash away my heartache, Broken hearted, When love comes round again and Think of me wherever you are.

Bought this album through Amazon because my father wanted to hear a song he liked from many moons ago ,Love me with all your heart ,which was track 7 on advertised album playlist ,when the disc arrived i eagerly opened it to play my very ill dad this record ,only to find it is not on the reissued album ,i am very disappointed with this album and it would never have been ordered without that song being on there.

Would not agree that these are his most popular songs so cannot call these the "best of" but still enjoyed it.

What a lovely collection of songs. Soft and mellow easy listening and all well know songs sung with warmth and sincerity. Ken is a sadly underestimated singer and this cd is just amazing. Lovely to listen to anytime and very relaxing. 24 songs on a cd is just terrific,there is not a duff song on it anywhere.
