(4 out of 5 stars)
"As a 33 year old connoisseur of easy listening music, I'll gladly croak side by side with Rod Mckuen in a elevator to the sky. I first discovered Rod in a pickle jar at a yard sale, and for 25 cents he was mine. From out of the pickle jar croaked the innocence of a toad, and the sadness of a lost kitten. It was a simple time of lollipops, sunshine, and beautiful violins. Will you put aside your prejudices for just a moment and lend an open heart? The sweetest sounds are locked away in secret places- only to be revealed when the soul departs. In flashes of brilliance, God grants permission to just a special few- Rod Mckuen has touched the sky. Why not croak along? Authur Greenslade's beautiful orchestration will pleasantly guide the way."
He is excellent !!!!!!!

"Rod McKuen is a fantastic artist. He has the ability to hold your attention, relaxes you and can put you into the world of his words."
Rod could write them, why did they ever let him record them

"Rod Mckuen was on T.V. so much in the 60's (Mike Douglas Show) I got to hear and see him a lot. I could not belive they let him sing back then and this recording reminded me of that time again. I used to try and wisper his songs around the house when I was 12 and 13. I'll never forget the day Rod Mckuen told Mike Dougles he was singing in his car and discoverd he had come upon more vocal range? This album is Rod Mckuen, the 60's best selling poet, singing basic demo's of his best songs..... Almost everyone of Rod's songs were taken by good singers and made into very good songs. Alot of good songwriters never get to record thier own songs, this album does let us hear how the writer sings what he wrote...."
