Outstanding Early Crooner!
gishfan | Texas | 02/01/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Voice of the Southland is an outstanding collection of songs by one of my favorite singers of the 1920s-1930s. The sound quality is excellent for recordings of this period and the selection of songs represent the crème de la crème of Gene Austin's early career (he had a semi-revival during the 1950s). Just a few of the twenty-five great songs on this disc include "My Blue Heaven," the biggest hit of the 1920s, "Ev'rything's Made For Love," "The Lonesome Road," "Just Like A Melody From Under The Sky," "Love Letters In the Sand," and "Ramona." I enthusiastically recommend this CD, another great issue from ASV/Living Era. The only other Gene Austin offering in print, Time To Relax, isn't as good as this one but still comes highly recommended, and at the time of this review is also available through"
A now forgotten crooner | Rockwall, Texas USA | 06/13/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am familiar with the works of Gene Austin for a number of years. All that had been available were scratchy old 78 rpm's. This digitally mastered CD eliminates the noise to reveal the smooth and easy ambiance that characterized his style and times. One the most popular crooners of the Jazz Age (Roaring Twenties), now largely forgotten. An excellent and rare find!"

"for those who enjoy the slow, quiet, peaceful voice of Gene Austin, this is a must to have."
