AllMusic Review by

16 Most Requested Songs of the 1940s, Vol. 1 contains a selection of traditional pop, big-band and easy listening hits from the Columbia Records vaults, including performances from Les Brown ("Sentimental Journey"), Harry James ("You Made Me Love You"), Dinah Shore ("Buttons and Bows," "Doin' What Comes Naturally"), Xavier Cugat ("Amor"), Benny Goodman ("Symphony"), Doris Day ("Again") and Ezio Pinza ("Some Enchanted Evening"). It's not a definitive overview of pop hits of the era, but it's still a nice sampler of some highlights from one of the most popular and successful labels of the decade.
