CD Reviews

Memory Lane
Gregory G Nipper | Omaha, NE United States | 01/24/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My parents made me a tape of this album when I was about three and I would play it repeatedly every day, mesmerized by Burl's... Burlness. Getting it on compact disc after all these years was incredible. Hearing his voice and his chords transported me back to my early childhood: I cried, I forgot how to walk, I may have soiled myself. Burl Ives sings of a time the world forgot. Buy this album and take a trip down memory lane."
Consider this album for your child!

"I bought this album for my four-year-old son, and he loves it! He memorized "Jimmy Crack Corn" in no time and also likes the Posse song. I love "Royal Telephone" myself. Thank you, Burl! Your music lives on."
An excellent overview of Burl's career

"If you can find this compilation of Burl Ives classics, buy it even though the Millennium Collection is available as it is out of print, there are many songs on this comp that aren't on the Millennium Collection comp and then these 5 songs are on the Millennium Comp but aren't on this CD from 1996: Goober Peas, Wild Side of Life, Mary Ann Regrets (this one is very much missed on this CD), The Same Old Hurt, and Foggy Foggy Dew, plus some of the repeats from this CD have improved sound quality on the Millennium Collection. Highlights on this CD aside from the duplicates that also appear on Millennium Collection including A Little Bitty Tear, Call Me Mr In-Between, Lavender Blue (Dilly Dilly), Blue Tail Fly (with the Andrews Sisters), Funny Way of Laughin', Big Rock Candy Mountain and Pearly Shells, are Royal Telephone (a wonderful gospel song), One Hour Ahead of The Posse (a great western song), Polly Wolly Doodle, True Love Goes On and On, Home On The Range, Beautiful Brown Eyes, the version of On Top of Ol' Smoky with the Percy Faith orchestra (the version on the Collectables Wayfaring Stranger CD is only Burl and his guitar) and many others. As I stated in an older review, this was planned to be called "The Best of Burl Ives" until MCA decided to change it to "Greatest Hits." This is a must have for all Burl Ives fans."
