Fabulous voices, less than great song selection

(5 out of 5 stars)
"Two of the most celebrated voices of a few decades ago, this CD is not exactly a collection of their "greatest hits" from that era, but though not the best overall selection of songs, there are still many fabulous tracks, my favorites being "Thunderball" and "With These Hands" for Jones, and "What Now My Love" and "Quiet Nights" for Humperdinck.
Both singers, with their respective phenomenal talents, have managed to survive into the 21st century, the changing tides of the music industry, and the bumpy road of fame, and are still giving concerts and having good careers.
"It's Not Unusual" put Jones on the map in 1965, and "Release Me" did the same for Humperdinck in '67, and both these songs are included on this CD, and are sure to bring back memories to their fans. For me, "Release Me" always brings back the memory of seeing Humperdinck in concert at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles in the early '70s, where he wore a jacket with "Release Me" in lights.
Though the songs could have been better for a hits compilation, there is enough greatness in the voices of these two fantastic singers alone to merit a 5 star rating, and as an avid Engelbert fan, and a moderate Jones fan, it's fun to hear them both on one disc.
The sound is O.K., and total time is 43'11.
