Album Review

The Very Best of Paul Anka concentrates on his early RCA recordings, as well as the re-recorded, stereo versions of his first hits that he cut when he switched labels. The revamped versions of "Diana," "You Are My Destiny," "Put Your Head on My Shoulder," and "Puppy Love" are mixed with later singles like "A Steel Guitar and a Glass of Wine," "Remember Diana," "Eso Beso (That Kiss)," and "It Doesn't Matter Any More." Though it doesn't quite live up to its title, The Very Best of Paul Anka is still a decent and fairly comprehensive collection of his '60s sound.

Customer Reviews


Spectactular! Breath-taking! Amazing! No words can correctly describe Paul Anka except the flowing and beauty of his music. Anka brings romance and class to your ears and steals your heart with lovable, sentimental-fun, and songs that never get old. I highly suggest this album and I guarentee you that it is worth the money. If you're a beginner at the classics of Anka start with songs like Diana or Put Your Head On My Shoulder (my personal favorite) to give you the feel of what Anka's music is bound to offer. Nothing beats the classics!

Teenage phenom!

I am surprised BMG of all companies would dare to release remakes, rather than some great originals.

Donʻt buy these remakes, even though theyʻre sung by the original artist.

One of the biggest teen idols of the late '50s, Paul Anka moved to the adult sphere several years later and became a successful performer, songwriter, music businessman, and recording artist, remaining so well into the new millennium. Born in Ottawa, Ontario, in 1941 to parents of Lebanese Christian descent who owned a local restaurant, Anka proved a child prodigy, beginning his show business life at the age of 12 as an impressionist. By the age of 14, he was stealing the family car to drive to amateur...
