4.0 out of 5 stars SOME MINOR COMPLAINTS July 15, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I have a few minor complaints about this release. It neglects the first half hour of the film, in which young Asa Yoelson (portrayed by Scotty Beckett) grows up to become Al Jolson. I believe their inclusion would have contributed tremendously to the overall impact of this disc. Songs like "Banks of the Wabash" and "Bluebell," as well as "When You Were Sweet Sixteen," were pivotal in conveying the genesis of the World's Greatest Entertainer. Their exclusion is more than compensated for by the inclusion of the songs from the 1930 Warner Bros.'Vitaphone production of "Mammy," in which one can compare the style of the younger Jolson with the mellower voice of the older Jolson.
It seems to me also that the source of "The Jolson Story" music was probably the VHS video of the movie, since the actual film mix is evident. That said, the sound on a quality audio system is quite good.

The album is a wonderful way to introduce one of the voice of "The World's Greatest Entertainer'. It captures his wonderful voice, after he had a serious lung operation, that produced a more mellow voice that 'Jolie' original voice. Those who would like to hear the original, more robust version of Jolson's voice can do so on many CD's now out on the market. No matter which edition of his voice you hear, you'll be thrilled by it. Do yourself a favor and watch a Jolson video and then put on a CD. You'll be pleased!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Worlds Greatest CD March 29, 1999
Format:Audio CD
The Soundtrack to the film biography of The Worlds Greatest Entertainer, Al Jolson, is simply The Worlds Greatest CD. "Mammy", "Toot Toot Tootsie", "California Here I Come", "Rock-A-Bye", "April Showers", and more from this classic film. Jolson's voice is at its best, after listening to this, why go back to Sinatra, Crosby, or even Elvis. If you haven't heard this CD than as Jolie said "You Ain't Heard Nothin Yet".
