Format: Audio CD
EMI has released The Very best of Slim Whitman and a superb cd it is!! The opening track is Rose Marie. Notably this is the original hit version of the song that became a worldwide hit including New Zealand where it was made mention in the (then) Auckland Weekly magazine as one on the big hits of the year of its release. Following on is Indian Love Call and all the other UK hits which are all are the original hit versions. The sound quality is excellent. When listening to tracks such as Unchained Melody, Old Spinning Wheel, It's A Small World and Home On The Range the versatility of Slim's voice is evident. The special song for me is `It's All In the Game' which was very popular here in New Zealand in 1974. This is the song that got me hooked on Slim's music and started me off on my way to a large Whitman collection! But, there is a real bonus on this cd and that is the inclusion for the first time ever of `We Three'. This track has not been released since Slim recorded the song much earlier and thanks to Paul Hazel searching the Capitol archives it is now available for the first time and well worth waiting for. This cd has it all. The liner notes are thorough and give a very good overview of Slim's career. When listening to track 26 `Happy Anniversary' take a moment to reflect on the quality of songs chosen by Slim and recorded with perfection throughout a long career. Thanks Capitiol/EMI. I look forward to your next Whitman release.

What a shame to spoil such a lovely collection of songs from Slim Whitman. I don't know what the audio engineers had been up to when recording this album but they managed to totally ruin the first 5 songs and one or two more of the early recordings they sound much too clinical much too clean and in my opinion its ruined a super collection of songs. I have the first 5 songs on 78's and even though they are old there is some depth to them. This has made me cautious of buying any dated music. The later songs 1964 onwards are fine and well recorded.
This cd wants re recording, If you want a cd for the joy of easy listening don't choose this one. I am speechless how on earth Capitol and EMI have allowed such a recording to be made, the quality of sound is missing untill the newer ones start.
DON'T BUY IT! However YOU CAN ALWAYS TRUST AMAZON 100% A great firm, if I had wanted to I could have sent it back but as other tracks were good, I decided not to. ALWAYS TRUST AMAZON, I DO!

Slim Whitman always meets my expectations. I have been a fan for well over 5 0 years and have lots of other CDs and Vinyl LPs. Now Slim is no longer with us he will be greatly missed.

My elderly mum is a keen Slim Whitman fan and after trawling through a vast selection of his DVD's decided this is the one for her. All I can say is she's well pleased with this purchase. He's not my cup of tea - I prefer Tamla Motown!!
