AllMusic Review by

For someone looking to brush up on their American popular song collection but not wanting to spend the big bucks on individual albums or discographies, Castle's Great Vocalists should help in that pursuit. An immense ten-disc set, Great Vocalists compiles best-of-esque (this is off a budget label after all) set of tracks from Frank Sinatra, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, Dinah Shore, Peggy Lee, Perry Como, Bing Crosby, and Doris Day. You get what you pay for here: minimal liner notes, a lack of huge hits (though of course some are included), but for what you pay, it can work as a decent introduction to ten important singers.
