"This is the most refreshing and 'uplifting' CD I've had the priviledge to hear in years! Paul Evans' versions of his hit songs recorded by other artists are excellent - such as 'ROSES ARE RED' made famous by Bobby Vinton, 'WHEN' recorded by The Kalin Twins, 'I GOTTA KNOW' by Elvis, etc., not to mention his own 'WILLIE'S SUNG WITH EVERYONE BUT ME' - a delightfully fun song that was included in a compilation of Willie's duets. There is also one song on this album 'HANGIN' OUT AND HANGIN' IN' that is worth the purchase price on it's own. This is a timeless masterpiece that could be a number one hit TODAY. If you want a 'HAPPY-GO-LUCKY' lift, you need this CD."
A fantastic performer - a real joy!!

"This CD contains a cross-section of some of the many musical sides of the versatile singer-songwriter-entertainer Paul Evans. This guy can do it all - and he does!! Hearing his original demo recording of his song ROSES ARE RED shows how much Bobby Vinton cloned Paul's rendition - but Paul STILL sings it better!! His WILLIE'S SUNG WITH EVERYONE BUT ME is hysterical! The passion he brings to AFTER THE HURRICANE is a page from Elvis' book - and the "southern" authenticity of his MIDNIGHT SPECIAL truly IS special!! Paul is a master of music and this CD is a joyful noise!! What we need now is a reissue of his FOLK SONGS FROM MANY LANDS - and another CD with hard-to-find demo recordings of his jingle singing and his other original songs, like HAPPINESS IS!!?!"
Thanks for the memories!

"What a treat it was to hear not only the old songs, but also the rare tunes I've never heard before on this CD. Hearing his hit songs again like, "Seven Little Girls," "Midnight Special," and "Happy-Go-Lucky Me" was like a time machine, taking me back to the 50's and 60's! Although Paul didn't write "Seven Little Girls," Paul's singing was what made it one of my all-time favorites of the 50's. This CD is a great resource of all his songs, and reveals Paul's endless talent as a songwriter and a singer who deserves more recognition in the new millennium. This one's a keeper - it's definitely a collector's item for me."
