4.0 out of 5 stars This is guy at his nearly best August 26, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is a collection of Guys records that any fan of the 1950s singers should have in their collection. It is good to see Wise Man or a Fool in the collection. I am sure that Derek Beeby of the G M A S will be pleased with this selection. Personally I would have been pleased to see the song Belonging in the selection but that is a personal view. If any person has just been reminded of Guys songs then grab this CD it is a pleasure to listen to the memory he has left us. Thank you Guy if there is such an internet where you are

5.0 out of 5 stars A Mitch Miller Creation September 11, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Between 1950 and 1953 Guy Mitchell - born Al Cernick on Feb, 27, 1927 - racked up 17 charted pop hit singles, and in this marvelous collection you get them all. Seldom, in this period, did Guy miss the million seller mark, but for one reason or another he could not reach the top rung in this period, as his highest ever was a # 2 on two occasions.

His first, My Heart Cries For You (based on an 18th Century French melody "Chanson de Marie Antoinette") reached that pinnacle in late 1950/early 1951, unfortunately at a time when Patti Page's huge hit, Tennessee Waltz, was occupying that spot for THIRTEEN weeks. The flip didn't do too badly either, as The Roving Kind (adapted from the English folk song "The Pirate Ship") made it to # 4. The second # 2, My Truly, Truly Fair, reached there in the summer of 1951, and it was kept from the top spot by Rosemary Clooney's Come On-A My House, which hogged the top spot for eight weeks.

His other Top 10 hits for the period covered were: Sparrow In The Tree Top (# 8 in spring 1951 - the flip, Christopher Columbus, also charted at # 27); Belle Belle, My Liberty Belle (# 9 in late summer 1951 - the B-side, Sweetheart Of Yesterday, made it to # 23); and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (# 4 in spring 1952 - the flip, Day Of Jubilo, reached # 26). He was accompanied on all of hits in this period by Mitch Miller & His Orchestra.
After being shut out from the charts in 1954/55 many figured Guy had run into the same stone wall called R&R that had stymied contemporaries like Eddie Fisher and Don Cornell.

ut then, in 1956, he returned to the charts with a # 23 Billboard Pop Top 100 in Ninety-Nine Years (Dead Or Alive) b/w Perfume, Candy And Flowers, and by 1960 had chalked up another ten charters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitive Guy Mitchell December 24, 2001
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What a voice. As a youngster, I listened to my parents 78 RPMs. I've discovered that many of these songs are marked in my psyche. The songs are simply moving and very pleasant to listen to...

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitive American hits collection October 2, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Aside from a duet with Rosemary Clooney (You're just in love), this compilation includes all Guy's American hits from his peak years although several major British hits are missing. As this is an American compilation, that is understandable - his chart successes in the two countries are strikingly different.

Guy's biggest hit - number one in both Britain and America - was Singing the blues, which was originally recorded by a friend of Guy's, the country singer Marty Robbins, who had an American top twenty hit with it. Guy was reluctant to record the song but eventually did so ant it is clear that the public wanted his version of the song although I enjoy both versions and I'm not sure why his version did so much better than Marty's.

Apart from Singing the blues, Guy only had one other American chart-topper - Heartaches by the number, which also made the top five in Britain - but he had three other number ones in Britain, two of which (She wears red feathers, Rock-a- billy), are included here.

Guy had many American hits but his record was patchy as many of them made the top thirty, even the top twenty, but most failed to make the top ten although some of those that did were hugely successful. Apart from the two number one hits, Guy's biggest hits were My heart cries for you, My truly truly fair and Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, all of which made the top five and sold at least a million copies each. It would be interesting to know how popular they were in Britain but UK record charts did not begin until November 1952. During that early period in Guy's career, he also made the American top ten with The roving kind, Sparrow in the tree top and Belle belle my liberty belle.

This is the strongest collection of Guy's American hits that you are ever likely to find.
