A Mixed Bag of Greatest Hits

"This compilation also includes Perry's 1957 hit record "Round and Round" mistakenly excluded here. This is an early 1988 compilation and it's another one of those jumbled up collections having no particular sense. The classic collection is still Perry's 1958 album "Como's Golden Records" which was released on CD a few years after this one. To call this set Perry's "All Time Greatest Hits" is certainly a misnomer but no less foolish than other attempts to do the same thing. BMG should focus on a theme and do it well, the 40s, the 50s, the 60s etc., or even the 70s from which one out of context song is included here. Perry's fans cover a wide range and the selection here is random at best and disjointed at the worst. The technical quality of these recordings is OK but nothing special and nothing rare! It took a third party, Time-Life Music, to release Perry's recording of "Catch a Falling Star" in stereo for the first time as many of his other greatest hits have yet to be."
Great Como Sampler

"Larry Bird is sometimes called basketball's all-time greatest "pure shooter". In that spirit, I would call Perry Como pop music's greatest "pure singer". This compilation contains most of his big hits from the 1950's. It was during that period that Como recorded a wide variety of songs from the beautiful "No Other Love" to "Papa Loves Mambo", which are included on this CD. He seemed to want to prove that his smooth, relaxed style could adapt even to such songs as "Ko-Ko-Mo", and he pretty well succeeded. Unfortunately, the CD does not include other great songs of the period, such as, "All At Once You Love Her", "And I Love You So", and "Wild Horses". Nor does it include very many of his earlier hits.If you want some of his very best, this is a great buy. I believe, however, that his new double CD with 44 of his hits will turn out to be a better buy. I do not have that as yet, but I know the songs and that would be my choice. As it is, I will buy the new album and get repeats."
Mr. Nice Guy

"This man's voice just calms the nerves and gives a new meaning to life itself. His warmth and love surround you until you're totally engrossed in a dream of peace and tranquility. The man is sincere in anything he does and it comes thru in this album quite clearly. Can't wait for vol 2! I have all his recordings since the early 40's (yes, they are breakable and pretty scratchy now (78's) that's why I appreciate this album or cd so much.I can now dream along with Mr. Nice Guy once again."
