Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Hailing from London, Ontario, Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians would have their first hit record in the fall of 1927. Incredibly, there would be 217 more charted hits over the next 27 years!!! The band would continue with live performances until 1977. What accounted for the enduring popularity of this outfit? After all, most of the critics dismissed Guy Lombardo's music as "trite and predictable" and dubbed him "The King of Corn". And many big band afficianados never really took him seriously either. But the record buying public loved him!! In fact, it has been estimated that over 100,000,000 Lombardo recordings have been sold!!!

Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians recorded for 4 different record labels over the years. This collection features 16 of his biggest hits on Decca between 1934 and 1954. These original recordings having been lovingly remastered for your enjoyment. There are 7 #1 hits here including ""Penny Serenade", "What's The Reason (I'm Not Pleasin' You), "Red Sails In The Sunset" and one of my all-time favorites "The Band Played On". The package also includes a nicely done 12 page booklet.

Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians were one of the most successful recording acts of the last millenium. "Guy Lombardo: Enjoy Yourself" should be included in any serious collection of 20th century American popular music. And while there are several discs currently available I feel that this is easily the best of the bunch. Recommended.

Format: Audio CD
This is a band leader who, prior to the emergence of the national Billboard Pop charts in 1940, registered well over 140 hit singles on what then passed for such listing (such as the Record Buyers Guide), no less than 21 of them # 1 hits. Then, from 1940 to 1954 he added another 73, including three more # 1s. It is estimated that, in singles alone [78/45rpm] he has sold over 100,000,000, easily making his the most commercially successful big band of all time.

Critics back then loved to pan his music, calling him "The King Of Corn" but as Joseph F. Laredo [my favourite liner note writer] says in his seven pages "For each critic of the Lombardo band's approach, there must have been at least a thousand admirers of every description imaginable. Jazz purists and all hipsters who decry the Lombardo sound as terminally square will be tormented until the end of their days knowing that Louis Armstrong was an ardent Lombardo booster." He then goes on to quote Louis, who said in writing, "Guy Lombardo and his band has always been my favorite band ... [and that brother Lebert] has always been in my mind as my first chair man in my dream band if he ever leaves the Guy."

Obviously, any attempt to completely cover his hits would require a 10-disc box set, but this one, with excellent sound reproduction, offers up original renditions of some of his best from 1934 to 1950 and, in the insert, shows you recording dates and label details. Not one of the selections offered from tracks 1 to 16 finished lower than # 10 [that was track 1]. Number one hits are represented at tracks 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 11 and 15, while # 2 hits are at tracks 8 to 10. The others were: track 5 [# 6], track 12 [# 7], track 13 [# 5], and track 14 [# 8].

Though most of Guy Lombardo's top chart hits not included here, you may really ENJOY YOURSELF when you listen it. "Enjoy Yourself" is amazing, and "Red Sails In the Sunset" is beautiful. Moreover, Guy's version of "Harbor Light" may give you a different experience with Platter's version.

Don't know much about the other songs on the cd, but this remastered version of Enjoy Yourself (It's later than you think) is too funny. It's got great horns, a cha cha/latino sound and lyrics that will make you laugh out loud. If ever there was a warning song for fast paced career driven 90's people--this is it.

I purchased this CD with the intent to play Auld Lang Syne on New Year's Eve, but I had recognized a few of the other numbers such as Bell-Bottom Trousers and And The Band Played On, plus the title song, Enjoy Yourself. I found myself enjoying it so much I played it over and over again, day after day. When I did decided to put a different CD on, it did not take long for me to switch back to Guy Lombardo. The mix of instrumentals and vocals I thought was very appealing as well as the mostly upbeat tempo of the selections. I liked Dearie as it reminded me of my younger days, Penny Serenade and Harbor Lights. It encouraged me to buy a CD of Glenn Miller and also The Only Big Band CD You'll Ever Need which has various Big Band artists. My favorite will remain Guy Lombardo's Enjoy Yourself and would definitely encourage others who want to listen to something new give it a try.

Enjoy yourself. It's later than you think!
Enjoy yourself. While you're still in the pink!
The years go by, As quickly as a wink.
Enjoy yourself. Enjoy yourself. It's later than you think!

You never go to nightclubs and you just don't care to dance.
You don't have time for silly things like moonlight and a bike romance.
You only think of dollar bills tied neatly in a stack
But when you kiss a dollar bill it doesn't kiss you back.

Enjoy yourself. It's later than you think!
Enjoy yourself. While you're still in the pink!
The years go by, As quickly as a wink.
Enjoy yourself. Enjoy yourself. It's later than you think!

Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians truly set the standard for fine music for many, many years; they brought happiness to millions of people with their music and songs that remain quite beautiful and memorable at once. The quality of the sound on this CD is good; some tracks have a bit of surface noise but make no mistake about it--you'll still enjoy the music. In addition, the artwork is tastefully done.

There's so much great music on this album; every tune's a winner although I do have my favorites just as you will, too. The first track, "Enjoy Yourself (It's Later Than You Think)" is catchy, memorable and just plain fun to listen to over and over again. I first heard this on a Guy Lombardo record album and the CD's digital format does justice to this opening number. "It's Love-Love-Love" has a sprightly classic Latin beat that I always love to hear; they sing this to perfection--and beyond while Guy and his band never let go of a single superfluous note!
