"The magnificently talented Michael Feinstein has made one wonderful album after another for nearly two decades. Now that Elektra and Rhino have put together this anthology, I am blown away by the versatility and diversity in Feinstein's recorded output. Such amazing rare gems, combined with the most beloved favorites in the history of American Popular Song. Assembled with wit, intelligence, and obvious affection on the part of the record company, this set is a keeper. You'll love it!"
Absolutely 'S WONDERFUL!

"There are very few contemporary performers who can hold their own with the truly great interpreters of American popular song. Michael Feinstein is truly the ONLY performer of the "younger" generation who really understands what these songs are all about. His incredible knowledge of this music, and his enthusiasm and passion for it have fueled his career. Rhino Records has done a truly outstanding job of putting together an anthology that exemplifies why Mr. Feinstein has become so beloved by audiences around the world. The packaging is excellent, and filled with interesting photos and background information about many of the selections.This collection not only contains all the favorites one would expect, but a neat group of surprises too. I especially love the duets with people like Liza Minnelli and Rosemary Clooney, and the various collaborative efforts with songwriters like Jule Styne and Burton Lane accompanying Michael at the piano.This collection is a classic to be treasured. Bravo Michael!
Bravo Rhino!"
Great Listening

"This is a fantastic two cd album of compilations from fourteen of Michael Feinstein's albums. Disc One has twenty two selections and Disc Two has twenty one,with duets with Rosemary Clooney,Page Cavanaugh and Liza Minelli. There are fourteen previously unissued selectiions.Also included in the package is a 50 page booklet with pictures of Michael and a wonderful interview conducted by George Feltenstein of Rhino Records,who also happens to be one of Michael's best friends. This is a great addition to this collection.Since Michael helped select the songs played here it is quite a representation of the many facets of his talent. This album will please all those who love his music."
