AllMusic Review by

These are wonderful memories, certainly, but unfortunately they are slightly false ones, since every track here except for Gogi Grant's "The Wayward Wind" is a re-recording done by, as they say, "the original artist or one or more members of the original group." There is usually a reason a song is a hit, and often that is due to intangibles in nuance, production, and just plain luck at the original session, and no matter how many times you redo it, those intangibles are missing. Avoid.
