Early Buddy Clark Album Shows His Versatility

"I'm a Buddy Clark fan from back in the late 40's when I was in Junior High. I loved his voice then, and I still love it. I have bought at least 30 Buddy Clark records/LP's/CD's in the past two months, and this one has songs I had never heard before. Here his wonderful voice is given full range, from novelty tunes, to jazz and all the way to ballads and country. If you love music of the 30's, this is a good selection."
Excellent early Buddy

"Take Two has done their typical first-rate job on this collection, with first-rate remastering of some of the rarest vocals from Buddy's Clark's years as a (sometimes uncredited) studio vocalist. A must for Buddy Clark collectors."
Back in the Day

"I've purchased nearly every album I can find of Buddy Clark's, and this one is the most interesting, because it reveals the change in singing styles from when he started singing with bands, to when he became more of an independent artist and began to be appreciated. I enjoy this album, primarily for its interest value.
The singing styles of the 30's had different phrasing and singers tried to sound like Rudy Vallee. In fact, Clark's voice was so much richer in tone and range than Vallee's. That style was good for Vallee, but it masked the depth and warmth of Clark's voice, which became apparent in later recordings.
I particularly enjoyed the Eddy Duchin number, but all of the bands are good and are great to listen to, even if Buddy weren't singing with them. A good buy for lovers of band music and for Buddy Clark fans. Nice to see we can still buy his records. Let's hope more will be released in the future. What a tragedy to lose him so early on, but at least modern
technology preserves some of his recordings. If you are reading this, you are likely a Buddy Clark fan and I highly recommend this album."
