AllMusic Review by

This two-fer from Collectables features a pair of out-of-print Ray Conniff LPs: Jean and Bridge Over Troubled Water. Originally issued in 1969 and 1970, respectively, each of the 22 tracks has a continuity dominated by easy listening (or elevator music) versions of popular songs from the '60s. Highlights include "Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In," "I'll Never Fall in Love Again," "Leaving on a Jet Plane," "Honey Come Back," and "Everybody's Talkin'." This is an enjoyable reissue from the massive Ray Conniff catalog on Columbia Records, but most listeners would be better-served with one of the many compilations in print.
