Album Review

While this two-disc compilation from Castle Pulse is hardly definitive, it does contain many, many classic performances and it lists for a good price. There are original recordings of "That's Amore," "In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening," "Lucky Song," "Georgia on My Mind," "That Lucky Old Sun," "Under the Bridges of Paris," and a few dozen others.

That is the function of a good compilation, and this one merits attention for that alone.
