Hey man, I'm so pleased with this crooner twofer!

"Man, this CD has all my favorite crooners and has helped me to discover ones I might not have heard, if it had not been for this insightful cd re-issure, which is done perfectly. For starters i bought this for the Bing Crosby and Frank sinatra cuts, but discovered some truly great singers. Chick Bullock is my favorite singer on here, he really knows how to carry a tune, and he was one of the 1st white singers in the 30's to sing with an all black band(he was backed by Cab calloway, Ellington, Waller...), he was one cool dude, and probably one of the best singers that ever lived. I wish they would put out a whole box set of Chick Bullock & His Levee Loungers. Anyway Harold Arlen is a great crooner as well as Seger Ellis, man that guy really croons romantic. Dude if you don't get this cd your crazy. Buy it, and do yourself a favor, buy an Al Bowlly cd too, because he wasn't on this one, so buy this and an Al Bowlly cd. Buy it now, laterz."
I loves this

"Wow, I was simply knocked out by Columbia Records Art Deco sereis for putting out such a wide range of crooners, not just the popular ones like Bing Crosby, but the forgotten ones like segar Ellis. Every cut on this superbly done disc is a gem. Even jazz critic Scott Yanow gave this a great review. This is without a shadow of a doubt the best crooner compilation ever put out by anyone, and you must own it. Such artists as Cliff "Ukulele Ike" Edwards, Pinky Tomlin, Willard Robison, and Russ Columbo are here, as well as Bing Crosby Harlan Lattimore, and Dick Haymes, and a few others. This is when men really sang like men, every one of these baritones will leave tingles up and down your spine. A perfect desert island sisc(10 stars)"
