5.0 out of 5 stars A More than Welcome Blast from the Past June 28, 2000
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album may come as a shock to people who think of Peter Nero as a purveyor of easy listening or smooth jazz. In his early days, he put classical-music shadings into popular songs and performed them with lightning speed, creating jazz piano with real bite and texture. The tunes are comfortable and familiar, but there's also a lot of fun stuff going on if you're willing to listen deeply. For example, "Dancing on the Ceiling" contains passages from Tchaikovsky's 6th Symphony, "The Way You Look Tonight" alternates between classical and pop stylings, and "Yesterdays" glides back and forth between major and minor interpretations of the theme. Buy this album immediately, and be sure to watch for more reprints from Nero's early years!

5.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Nero May 5, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Finally! Two CD's from Nero's original albums. Even though his "Young and Warm and Wonderful" album shares the CD titled "For the Nero Minded", the majority of the tracks are winners. During those early albums, Marty Gold conducted and scored the orchestral support which worked beautifully with Nero's arrangements. It has stood the test of time very well. "Hail the Conquering Nero" is next for me. If you are a Nero fan and you've missed his early stuff -- they're here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Peter Nero ~ As Good As Ever! June 22, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Peter Nero's Greatest Hits now digitally mastered on CD is as great as the LP ever was! Familiar but still thrilling overtures from our past. Nobody gets the rhythm or titilating piano any better than Peter Nero!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but it is too short November 29, 1999
By Ingalls
Format:Audio CD
Peter Nero played the piano with great taste. This album is good but is way too short with only ten selections. Still, so little of his work is available on cd that this will have to do for now.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! September 10, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Ian Levine has split soul fans in two camps, those who despise his recordings with more than 100 former Motown artists, and those who thank him for getting such talented artists to work again. Frances Nero had only a few singles released on Motown before retiring completely from the music business. 24 years later, it was Ian Levine who persuaded her to record again, and he did for her what Berry Gordy never did: he gave her a hit record. The brilliant "Footsteps Following Me" reached the UK Top 20 in 1991, displaying Frances' sunny, bright voice on a catchy, flowing tune. There are plenty of other good tracks on this CD, I recommand "Making My Daydream Real", "Mister Right" (co-written by Edwin Starr), "Right Up To The Limit" and the very 90s "Come Back And Start Again". Ashford/Simpson's "Some Things You Never Get Used To" is a very good remake, but there are, however, songs that don't work quite as well, the covers of "Attack", "Why Don't I Run Away From You", and the surprisingly lackluster re-dos of 70s disco anthems "Shame" and "Young Hearts Run Free", but apart from these, the majority of tunes are a good and competent showcase for such a beautiful voice as Frances Nero's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy Listening At Its Best May 15, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Wonderful music. This CD contains Peter's best known pop favorites of the late 1960s and early 1970s. His most successful single, "Theme from The Summer Of '42" is here. Just beautiful!! His great version of "Love Story" is also in this collection. My favorite is the "Theme from The Godfather"--very moody and full of music. Wish this had "Brian's Song"--Nero's other best selling single. Worthwhile purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hisorical December 14, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I have this in LP. I grew up listening to my fathers recordings of Sinatra, Jackie Gleason, and Norrie Parramour etc.. This album is fantastic. One of the main reasons why I listen to smooth jazz today. A child of the 60's no more. If you like Lyle Mays with Pat Metheny you'll love Peter Nero. A guitar player for 40 yrs. Nero gave me a great appreciation for the jazz pianist. He paved the way for people like Mays and David Benoit. I wasn't sure this would still be in circulation let alone cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars All hail Nero!! February 11, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I've been a fan of Peter Nero since age 5, when my father took me to see him play. I met him several times since then and have heard him in a trio, a solo setting, as well as with a pop orchestra. There are so few masters of piano in this world...make no mistake...this man is a master in every genre, and in every sense of the word. Do not miss this (or any) of his recordings.
