CD Reviews

Captures the career of Jolson from 1913 to his death in 1950
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD has tracks not offered elsewhere. Latin from Manhattan is a classic that is hard to find but available here. The ordering of the tracks is quirky but it is the best CD that I have seen that captures the essence of Jolson."
Why Al Jolson was once "The World's Greatest Entertainer".
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album represents the Beginning, the Great Years, and the Years After Jolson had most of one lung removed and sang four keys lower than in his prime. The after voice was more mello than before the operation. The listener will learn how Jolson was able to captivate audiences all through his lifetime. It is a pity that the present generation was unable to see Jolson perform in person. He was the first superstar in show-business. This album gives the listener a taste of how he thrilled people. These Cd's are the best representation of why Jolson was called, at one time, "The World's Great Entertainer"."
