"Please refer to my review for the product entitled: You Stepped Out Of A Dream. Memorable and Mellow contains all of these tracks with the addition of the tracks:
You Only Live Twice, When You Awake, On The Street Where You Live, and Nancy With The Laughing Face. This is the Bobby Hackett dream CD for the following reason:
All 9 tracks on the CD Goodnight My Love are contained on the
You Stepped Out Of A Dream CD. So, if you can grasp Memorable and Mellow, you get these 2 CDs plus 4 songs, all in one. Grand!!! In addition, I can recommend the next step up from Memorable and Mellow. See the sponsored links, or go to www.yestermusic.com for Music 'Til Dawn. Bobby Hackett is supported by 2 theater organs, one or another at any given time, with each organ played by 4 hands. There are also piano and guitar brought into the mix. These 2 organs were salvaged from demolition, and kept in 2 large barns. Columbia sent everyone involved out to the barns to make the recording. You will find this rapturous recording only at yestermusic.com and that is because the producer was there for the original recording. He obtained it from the vaults where it would likely have remained in obscurity. Bobby Hackett is at his very best here, with remastered sound that is clean and bright. Bobby Hackett's cornet stands alone on ballads just as Wild Bill Davison's does on romps and stomps. An absolute and irrevocable thrill awaits you!"
A remastered classic..

"O.K. so 40 plus years ago I met this chick in calculus class. She came complete with two Bobby Hackett vinyl albums from her former boyfriend - Memorable and Mellow was one. The package was irresistable and all three were keepers. Before the remastered version became available, I tried replacing the well worn albums via the Jackie Gleason route. Those sounded like they were recorded in the Men's room at the Greyhound bus station. Don't torture yourself I said - the memory is too exquisite to pollute it with this junk.
Let me say this about that - when I listened to this remastered Memorable and Mellow, I did blink away a tear or two. There I was again: a callow youth in 1965, my true-love beside me, a quart of Colt 45 and impure thoughts. Thanks, Bobby."
