If there was just one album to introduce you to the World Of "HI FI Easy Listening", this could be it. The engineering and production are startling, the selection "Could you do better"? They say there is a time and place for everything, this CD is Anytime Any Place, go on treat yourself, you will not regret it. Meet you in the lounge sometime. ROGER

Friend of mine lent me this album. I was hooked straight away. Went out and bought my own copy. Recently took it sailing it with me - all my crew mates loved it too.
It's the ultimate in feel-good atmosphere. Buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another 5-star collection from the Ultra-Lounge folks! 12 Dec. 2002
By Brooke Pennington - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I suppose I will divide this review into two parts, one for the listener who is not familiar with the " Ultra Lounge" series and those (like myself) who wait anxiously for the next release in the series. If you are new to Ultra-Lounge, well, you can dive in about anywhere in the series and get an idea of the Ultra-Lounge outlook on life: life is good, relaxation is essential, and a good mixed drink should never be far away. If this is a philosophy you agree with, and you're tired of all the cookie-cutter pop music and bland jam-band rock, give lounge music a try to perk you up without sounding cliched (or perhaps by sounding so cliched you don't realize you're hearing a cliche!) These Ultra Lounge CDs give you a chance to sample some of lounge's many subgenres without committing to a CD by a sole artist.
For those of us who have heard these collections before, this one is familiar territory. Be warned, however, that all tracks on this and "W,C, and S II" are vocal tracks, which may put off some who prefer their lounge music more Martin Denny-style, laid back and instrumental.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vocals to Get Your Fingers Snappin'! 7 May 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
One of the strongest volumes in the series, and a great introduction for the beginning lounge aficionado, this one includes all the '60s Vegas lounge royalty, and it swings right out of the galaxy!
Aside from a few tracks like "Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone" by a young Sammy Davis, Jr., the sultry "You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To" by Julie London, and the uber-classic "Fever" by Peggy Lee, this volume is commandingly owned by Louis Prima, Bobby Darin, and Dean Martin.
Prima checks in with mega-hit "Jump Jive an' Wail" (recently played to death when the Brian Setzer Orchestra covered it), but his best entry is the uproarious "Closer to the Bone," a cute song about the singer's love for skinny women. Each verse gets more sidesplitting than the last, and if that last one doesn't have tears of laughter rolling down your cheeks, you probably need to listen more closely! (And makes sure to listen for sax player Sam Butera sampling from Glenn Miller's "Pennsylvania 6-5000" at the start of his solo!)
Good ol' Dino is represented here with two of his greatest songs. Everybody loves the soaring "Volare." And the bottom line is, it just doesn't get any better than "Ain't That a Kick in the Head." Dean at his hard-swingin' best and Nelson Riddle's magnificent brassy arrangement made this the perfect tune to kick off the volume.
Bobby Darin wins hands down, with THREE entries. "Sunday in New York" is a beautiful song, capturing Darin's laid-back manner better than any other song I've heard. And light, cool, breezy "More" is just one of the greatest songs ever. (I fell in love with it years ago when I heard it on a car commercial.)
As of now, I've yet to hear the follow up, Volume 15, but if it's anything like this one, it'll be money well spent!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wild -You Bet! Cool - Cucumber! Swining - Aces Baby, Aces! 8 Mar. 2000
By Dave Pavone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Like many of the other reviewers, I was lured in to the Ultra Lounge series's seductive web with the fuzzy sampler; (that leporard-skinned temptress had me lapping melted ice out of her palm before I knew what hit me, why with her tight packaging, and velvety smooth case, my mere "regular guy" defenses were no match...but that's a different story). Sure I've branched out. How could I resist? The sampler leaves you wanting more and more...
Wild, Cool & Swinging is by far my favorite of the series(with WCS,TOO)right next door. These 2 cd's get away from some of the truly ecclectic, electric and quirky beats of other cd's in the series(which breathe their own life, but we're talkin'favorites here). Instead the WCS cd's come with straight ahead swing. Songs about gals who want guys and vice versa... providing it doesn't interfere with cocktail hour. The sauve sense of the lyrics, the accenting punch of the horn sections, and and the big finish style of each song, will leave your fingers snappin' and lips mumblin' cool baby, real cool....

5.0 out of 5 stars This is just an all time classic CD - you have to have it! 6 Feb. 2002
By Marjorie Lacovic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I cannot say enough about how good this CD mix is. I love it so much that I am getting a new copy to replace one that was loaned out (probably never to be seen again - big mistake!). It is one of my fave CDs and never fails to get me in a good mood and swinging to the beat. Not a bad song on it - and I didn't know many of them before I bought it many years ago. I was in a music store and they were playing it in the background. I asked what it was since it was so cool! That was their last copy and I bought it on the spot. Best purchase that I ever made. (Okay really I know it sounds like I work for amazon or something but really this CD is so hot!)
All time fave on it of course is "Jump, Jive and Wail" - the original is much better than the remake. Other greats are "Fever", "Closer to the Bone", and "Ain't That a Kick in the Head". Just all awesome songs. Whoever put this together really knew what they were doing.
Enjoy it! I can't wait to get my new copy. I miss it.
