CD Reviews

The Ol' Perfessor gets an A+
Katy Didd | Sanford, Michigan United States | 08/28/2004

"Every track is a winner on this Kyser compilation. Some may quibble over the omission of some Kyser favorites ("Thinking of You, "Three Little Fishes," "Playmates"), but for the most part the music is highly enjoyable and sure to put a smile on your face, as Kyser's music was intended to do. The liner notes are well-written and the fidelity is outstanding. A good introduction to the Kay Kyser Orchestra for those who are new to his music."
Very nice, but not the best

"This collection was one of, if not the first 'Best of' Kay Kyser CDs, so for that reason i give it a good score. There are dozens of songs equal or better from Kay, Ginny, Harry, Sully Ish, Georgia and Mike Douglas. I certainly wouldn't consider the inclusion of THAT'S FOR ME, BELL BOTTOM TROUSERS or HUGGIN' AND CHALKIN'as representing their best work, nor their most popular. I notice they don't include some of their biggest hits, such as 3 LITTLE FISHES or PLAYMATES or PUSHIN' SAND, but I guess when you had 35 top tens one must leave something out! If one is just being introduced to this great band of great people (I know, I've met many of them over the years)this collection serves its purpose. Try A STRICT EDUCATION IN MUSIC. It's 50 Kyser songs for about the same price!"
