CD Reviews

Fun with Lucy & Desi!
Mark Savary | Seattle, WA | 03/20/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"While not strictly a soundtrack of the classic television series "I Love Lucy", this CD does have several of the most memorable musical numbers from the show.The Mertzes and Lucy join in with Desi on "Jingle Bells", "California Here I come" and others. Famous Lucy & Desi numbers include "Cuban Pete", "We're Having a Baby", "There's a Brand New Baby at Our House", and the vocal version of the "I Love Lucy" theme song. These are interspersed with songs taken from classic radio programs featuring Desi.The opening cut is a modernized dance version of "Babalu" with dialog from the show spliced in as a rap-like accompaniment. A little annoying at first, but it can grow on you if you let it.The opening cut was made by Weird Al of pop star impersonation fame ("Eat It", "Girls Just Want to Have Lunch", "The Saga Begins", "Dare to be Stupid"). Yankovic also produced the CD. In a nice turn, he keeps a low profile on the album, letting the music of the Lucy show speak almost entirely for itself. I thought that showed a respect for the classic series, and more importantly, for Desi's music.The CD is reasonably priced, and well worth the smiles you'll get remembering musical moments from "I Love Lucy"."
Worth EVERY cent!!

"This is the greatest CD I have ever heard. Desi Arnaz is perhaps the greatest singer-songwriter our country has ever seen. It is an honor for me to be able to review this incredible work of art. It is a sign of Amazon's musical credibility that they carry this album."
