5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent dance and listening music October 15, 1998
Format:Audio CD
I've been listening to Billy Vaugn since I was 16 yeas old. If you like Excellent Alto Sax playing 3RD harmonics this is music for you. I've never met anyone who doesn't like his music. It's good to be able to get it on CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Billy Vaughn updates Gene Autry's hit. March 22, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I used the song "Sail Along Silvery Moon" as a theme song for a radio show I had in Las Vegas in 1966-68. We played rock & roll hits such as James Brown and The Beatles and Wilson Pickett and The Kinks etc. It was an incongruity to play Billy Vaughn for a theme but it worked. I had the recording of "Sail Along Silvery Moon" by Gene Autry when I was a kid. Billy Vaughn did a great job with the melody. For those who may not know, Billy Vaughn also did some hit recordings as a vocalist. He was a member of the vocal group The Hilltoppers. They recorded on Dot and some of their recordings are also available at Amazon.Billy's orchestra was basically a rock band surrounded by horns.

As the title of this review suggests, if Guy Lombardo & His Royal Canadians gave us "the sweetest music this side of heaven" throughout the Thirties and Forties, then Billy Vaughn kept some of us sane during the raucous decade of the 50s and the early part of the 60s with his melodic sounds. His 12 Top 40 pop hits from 1955 to 1962 followed hard on the heels of his three-year tenure with The Hilltoppers singing group where he also contributed to ten more hits from 1952 to 1954.

After leaving the group to become Dot's musical director in 1955 (they would have six more Top 40 hits between 1955 and 1957) he not only chalked up those 12 hits of his own, but his orchestra was a prominent part of many of the hits of Pat Boone, Tab Hunter, The Fontane Sisters, and Gale Storm, among others, including the three put out by the venerable old actor Walter Brennan (of TV's The Real McCoys fame) in 1960 and 1962.

Anything by Billy Vaughn was readily discernible within the opening few bars and, without exception, charted or uncharted as singles, ALL of his music is thoroughly enjoyable.

The only thing keeping me from giving the CD at least 4 stars is Curb's usual habit of including only ten or eleven songs in their compilations and virtually nothing in the way of liner notes (exactly that here - nothing), and their habit of screwing up on at least one track. As another reviewer pointed out, track 8 in this collection is NOT When The White Lilacs Bloom Again, but rather a tune called Morning Mist. Nice as it is, it not only wasn't among his "greatest hits" it wasn't even the flipside of one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Some of Billy's Best January 11, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Billy Vaughn's greatest hits is a good beginning CD for those not familiar with Vaughn's recordings. All are the original DOT recordings(not later 70s rerecordings of hits). The only drawback of this CD is the fact that the cut listed as WHEN THE WHITE LILACS BLOOM AGAIN is not the correct song. The song on the CD is actually MORNING MIST.
