CD Reviews

And the band played on and on and on for 50 years !!!!
Paul Tognetti | Cranston, RI USA | 06/04/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Hailing from London, Ontario, Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians would have their first hit record in the fall of 1927. Incredibly, there would be 217 more charted hits over the next 27 years!!! The band would continue with live performances until 1977. What accounted for the enduring popularity of this outfit? After all, most of the critics dismissed Guy Lombardo's music as "trite and predictable" and dubbed him "The King of Corn". And many big band afficianados never really took him seriously either. But the record buying public loved him!! In fact, it has been estimated that over 100,000,000 Lombardo recordings have been sold!!!
Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians recorded for 4 different record labels over the years. This collection features 16 of his biggest hits on Decca between 1934 and 1954. These original recordings having been lovingly remastered for your enjoyment. There are 7 #1 hits here including ""Penny Serenade", "What's The Reason (I'm Not Pleasin' You), "Red Sails In The Sunset" and one of my all-time favorites "The Band Played On". The package also includes a nicely done 12 page booklet.
Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians were one of the most successful recording acts of the last millenium. This music should be included in any serious collection of 20th century American popular music. And while there are several discs currently available I feel that this is the best of the bunch. Recommended."
A song for the 90's if ever there was one

"Don't know much about the other songs on the cd, but this remastered version of Enjoy Yourself (It's later than you think) is too funny. It's got great horns, a cha cha/latino sound and lyrics that will make you laugh out loud. If ever there was a warning song for fast paced career driven 90's people--this is it."

"Though most of Guy Lombardo's top chart hits not included here, you may really ENJOY YOURSELF when you listen it. "Enjoy Yourself" is amazing, and "Red Sails In the Sunset" is beautiful. Moreover, Guy's version of "Harbor Light" may give you a different experience with Platter's version."
