AllMusic Review by

Issued in 1992, this concise Bob Hope collection features many of the revered American entertainer's finest pop vocal recordings from the late '30s to the late '50s. Most of the tunes here are duets, predominantly with either Shirley Ross (the romantically bittersweet title track) or Bing Crosby (the goofy "Put It There Pal"), who starred with Hope in a number of '40s road movies. While there are more comprehensive Hope compilations on the market, THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES captures his fine singing voice and amiable persona with brevity and class.
