CD Reviews

Fun stuff from the Golden Era of pop vocals
Joe Sixpack -- | Middle America | 12/05/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"'Forties crooner Dick Haymes gained fame singing with bandleader Harry James during a fabled 1939-1941 association wherein he was famously brought in as the replacement for bobbysoxer idol Frank Sinatra. This disc is a swell set of live 1943-1950 radio performances, capturing Haymes at his most nakedly Sinatra-esque. This chronologically arranged, 31-song set is generously programmed and well-paced, more fun and more engaging than other Haymes collections I've heard, and more lively than many of his studio performances. Great between-song banter with Haymes and the various bandleaders and announcers. Recommended!"
