That this 1968 release is Regis's only pop-vocal album says something about its overall quality and lack of commercial acceptance. One CD that you won't mind seeing end after 26 minutes, It's Time for Regis! captures none of the guy's unique meld of the exuberant and the wiseacre. Instead, it finds him tonelessly negotiating the likes of "Mame," "Swanee," and a combo of "Toot, Toot, Tootsie (Goodbye)" and "Baby Face" that comes off not so much like a medley as the musings of a man who can't remember which song he's supposed to be singing. As for the absurdly schizoid production, a meld of rinky-tink tempos and half-hearted pop-country moves, let's just say that it represented a boldly over-the-top aesthetic stance in the year of the "White Album" and Beggars Banquet. --Rickey Wright

"I ordered the CD because i am such a huge Regis fan, i love him, and after hearing him sing in person i really enjoyed ordering the CD. A great buy, suprisingly!"
At least he doesn't bark like a dog

"Regis Philbin CANNOT sing...Let's be honest here...Sure,he's a star of teevee and all,but so are Lettermen,Leno,Oprah,Maury and Jerry Springer,but you do not see any of these people trying to match tonsils with Tony Bennett...And,sure,this album was made 40 years ago,when Regis was a nobody,but that is STILL no excuse for this disaster..I sing in the shower,and am a nobody as well,but you do not see me inflicting my bad voice on the listening public...Now this album might stand as a curiousity item,sort of a monument to the man BEFORE he became a teevee talk show icon,but Philbin has recently released another album of bad vocals,this time with a bigger budget,strictly as an effort to make a fast buck on his teevee status...Given that his new album is NOT any better than his old album (and,in many respects it is worse!),it is obvious that Philbin is a vainglorious doof,who has no regard whatsoever for the listening public...So buy this album only if the money would otherwise be spent on crack,or if you are moments away from death and really do not care where the money goes as long as it isn't left behind for your relatives to squander,but if you are healthy,and not mentally deranged,avoid this album as if it were the plague."
