Great old time music..

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Cliff Edwards is a great forgotten artist, his style of singing is truely unique. Some people associate it with scatting, but I think its much different then that. This kind of music really makes you wonder about what the 20s and 30s were like, it has a lot of the roaring 20's feel to it. My only dissapointment is the sound quality stinks, its like listining to the 78's the songs were taken from, these could be touched up a lot better than this with todays technology. I guess there wasnt any money in it. I mean for $6, this is a steal and a great addition to any music collection."
Jazz vocal collectors should enjoy this CD

"As a fan of jazz vocal, it's hard to believe that Cliff Edwards(Even before Louis Armstrong) used to scat sing before the phrase "Scat singing" was ever thought up. This CD should be of interst to jazz vocal collectors, some of these performences are very enjoyable."
Second Best Ike collection
Ukulele Mike | WI United States | 04/03/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This little collection of Cliff Edwards releases is a great way to understand him as a jazz singer, no doubt about it. His "Its only a paper moon" shows him at his most expressive. However, this is only the SECOND best ukulele ike collection...the best is the Yazoo album Bear in a Ladies Boudoir, which shows the mastery with which Edwards combined his awesome voice with the ukulele. "Hard Hearted Hannah" may be only a fun old collegiate romp, but Edward's recording is sheer mastery. I don't know if that's out on CD, though. Still, you can't go wrong with this album...get it if you're a Ukulele Ike fan."
