World Greatest Entertainer
Mr. Emile Smiley | Ottawa, Ontario, Canada | 11/25/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This album contains some of Jolson's greatest hits. In front of an audience he was spectular, able to make them laugh with one song and cry with another. This album highlights Jolson's voice after he had an operation that removed most of one lung that made him sing 4 keys lower than before the operation. In his prime, no other entertainer could match him. When he appeared at benefit shows with other great stars, he was always put on last because no one could follow him. He was the first superstar of the 20th. Century and is still considered one of the greatest stars of the century even he has been dead for 50 years. You'll really enjoy this CD."
Good Jolson CD With A Different Selection
Edward J Vasicek | Kokomo, IN USA | 03/05/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)
"As a great Al Jolson fan, there are few Jolson CD's I do not like. This is a good one, with selections not found in most Jolson CD's, including, "Are You Lonely Tonight" and the 40's version of "I'm Sitting On Top of the World."There are many Jolson CD's available, and this is a good one if you have a few of the others. But some other CD's (like Al Jolson, The Best of the Decca Years) are probably better for the new Jolson fan. The mixing on this one is okay, but several others seem to provide more depth of sound.Jolson is, in my view, the greatest entertainer and my favorite male soloist of all time. Although some CD's might be a bit better, you would certainly not be making a mistake getting this one."
