CD Reviews

Sweet stuff from the peak of the crooning era
Joe Sixpack -- Slipcue.com | ...in Middle America | 05/28/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This 2-CD set covers all the Columbia studio singles crooner Dick Haymes recorded with bandleader Harry James during a fabled 1939-1941 association wherein Haymes was famously brought in as the replacement for bobbysoxer idol Frank Sinatra. Also included are a handful of tunes recorded with Benny Goodman, during a short stint with his band. It's all delightfully corny, cornball material -- Haymes was a real smoothie, with a light, silken baritone and an unabashed penchant for syrupy sentiment. He doesn't seem as heartfelt as many of his big band contemporaries, but he's certainly a man of his times. If you dig schmaltzy, romantic pop vocals (and the sweet sound of James' sleek arrangements) then this is a set you'll wanna check out."
