In which the record company implies that the artist has only turned out 12 songs worth compiling in five decades. Does this disc even run longer than 30 minutes? The dumbness within the dumbness is that these songs actually span about 30 years. Which according to most number systems is kinda not five decades.
If you're this interested, go for Rhino's 30th Anniversary Collection. For five bucks more, you get 24 hits instead of the 12 Curb parcels out. All but the last three tracks here are there as well. Frustratingly, Curb manages to include one key hit (to these ears, anyway) not on the Rhino set--"Hold Me Til The Morning Comes" is a great ballad (to these ears, anyway) featuring Peter Cetera on backing vocals. It nicked the Top 40 (peaking at #40) in 1983, making Anka one of the few artists to hit in the 50's, 60's, 70's, and 80's. Its presence here justifies, unfortunately, the existence of this skimpy thing.

What I want to know is does anyone know of a CD collection that contains Paul's original ABC hits from 1957-61? There used to be a label called Sire which had such a collection but unless one can find it as vinyl in some used record store, its unavailable. Its a shame, because the CD thats on my left, the "21 golden hits" version on RCA are all remakes, which sound terrible. Even Paul, I've read, regretted making it.

For the most part, I am pleased with this compilation. Paul Anka has one of the most distinctive voices in pop music and his popularity has stood the test of time. Each major hit on this CD is a piece of pop music history. So, why do I only give this CD three stars. I find it hard to believe that a man of Mr. Anka's distinction can not get a more comprehensive CD to showcase his talents and the musical changes he went through during the span of his career. This CD says FIVE DECADES. So, where are the rest of the songs? This CD is missing major Anka tunes from his Columbia, RCA and Buddha years. His ABC-Paramount years are covered fairly well with his major hits. The United Artists years are also well represented, although this CD should have included "Happier" and "Closing Doors" from his standout LP "The Painter" (why that LP is not available on CD boggles my mind. It is perhaps his best next to "Feelings" which is on CD and does contain as a bonus track, "Happier." But nowhere can you get the best track on that LP - "Closing Doors.") His Buddha years are totally ignored on this set and his major hit "Jubilation" during those Buddha years is an obvious missing track in my eyes. Columbia songs such as "Second Chance" with Michael McDonald is also missing. "Love Makes The World Go Round" during the RCA years is not here. I could on and on and I'm sure others have favorites which are not included in this compilation. That is my point - a man of Mr Anka's caliber deserves a better, more rounded salute to his career and FIVE DECADES should have included more songs from each decade. One major plus with this set is the inclusion of the moving and emotional Anka tune "Freedom For the World.Read more ›

Some of the best of Paul's songs. Really nice for a quiet evening by the fireplace. My personal favorate is "Hold Me 'Till The Morning Comes". Beautiful song, with Peter Cetera singing background.

MR. ANKA'S VOICE HAS ONLY GOTTEN BETTER WITH AGE. THIS CD DOESN'T HAVE EVERY HIT HE EVER WROTE BUT THE ONES IT DOES INCLUDE ARE FANTASTIC. WELL WORTH THE MONEY. ONE OF MY FAVORITES, "HOLD ME TILL THE MORING COMES" IS TRULY AN ANKA CLASSIC. DON'T MISS THIS ONE.
