This collection features three songs by Vic Damone (On the street where you live, Almost like being in love, It had to be you) and two each by Andy Williams (Music to watch girls by, Can't take my eyes off you), Petula Clark (Don't sleep in the subway, Downtown), Doris Day (Perhaps perhaps perhaps, Move over darling) and Nancy Sinatra (These boots are made for walking, Sugar town).
There are other famous classics here including Spanish eyes (Al Martino), Beyond the sea (Bobby Darin), Moon River (Danny Williams - no relation to Andy as far as I know, but Danny's version was a UK number one hit), Magic moments (Perry Como), That's amore (Dean Martin), Love letters in the sand (Pat Boone) and Let there be love (Nat King Cole) - and that's just a few of them.
This is a magnificent compilation of easy listening music from the fifties and sixties. With 38 tracks, there is plenty to enjoy.
The track ordering is virtually random. Virtually no sleeve notes. So I would rate it 4.5 stars but half stars are not available here.
The Brits slightly let the side down with their less sophisticated and less well engineered contributions. Tony Hatch was something of an English Bacharach but the melodically gorgeous Don't Sleep in The Subway sort of demonstrates the problem of English sixties pop - a great song yes - but a great record - not really. In LA a group like Spanky and Our Gang, the Fifth Dimension or the Mamas and Papas or even the Monkees, would have made pop nirvana out of a composition like that. There is a lot less chance of a post 1965 hit attracting the numerous cover versions that a fifties or forties song would and therefore less chance of somebody really nailing it with a definitive version. Often we're stuck with only the hit version, recorded in a rush without too much care or attention.
My particular favourites are Buddy Grecos the Lady Is a Tramp and Mel Torme's Blue Moon - 2 tracks I would otherwise have been very unlikely to own and in a style that has receded into the mists of time so much as to now seem deeply fresh and exotic.
