"Ed Ames is an unrivalled singer among the greatest male singers. And for many reasons: his absolute professionalism, his deep humanity that transcends his singing, his emotional, tasty, gracious, evocative style, the conviction he puts in each song, viewed as a work in itself. His voice is like the seasons, being like a light breeze or capable of thundering. He has the classicism and elegance of Bing Crosby, but he can really belt! It must be said that he made over 30 disks, and therefore the songs of the CD, though representative, are far from exhausting all what he sang, changing each song, even the more modern one, into a definite standard. Ed Ames was a tremendous, impressive artist who must be rediscovered and considered as one of this century's greatest singers. He must not be seen just as one of those retro singers. He is a great and rare entertainer, capable of bringing joy or stirring the soul. BUY THIS CD and let's hope that his numerous other disks will be released as CDs too! He deserves the best!"
A great balladeer

"Ed Ames originally made his name as one of the Ames brothers but continued as a solo singer after his brothers quit. He had several solo hits in the America during the sixties, where his albums also sold well. His hits were usually songs from musicals, but he made no impact in Britain. On this CD, you get two of his original albums plus two of his other hits.Who will answer, My cup runneth over, Try to remember and Time time were among Ed's American hits. All of them are included here. He had other hits that are not included here. Most of the other songs here are covers.Among the great covers of contemporary pop songs here are Blowing in the wind (Bob Dylan), Yesterday (Beatles), Monday Monday (Mamas and Papas), Massachusetts (Bee Gees), Cherish (Association), The other man's grass is always greener (Petula), Can't take my eyes off you (Andy Williams) and There's a kind of hush (Herman's hermits, later covered by the Carpenters). Show songs are also well represented, including In the arms of love (from What did you do in the war Daddy), Au revoir (from Sherry), Watch what happens (from The umbrellas of Cherbourg), Melinda (from On a clear day you can see forever), True love (from High society) and Edelweiss (from Sound of music).This is a wonderful collection. I wish more of his original albums were available on CD."

"Of the two albums available, this is the better buy. It includes the complete songs from two lps, most importantly, "Who Will Answer" and "Try To Remember" which are not on the album MY CUP RUNNETH OVER."
