5.0 out of 5 stars A great cd from a great voice! April 6, 2000
By lobo65
Format:Audio CD
I have taken a ribbing from my friends for being a fan of this man's music, but his voice is just incredible. Don't be fooled by the country bumpkin he portrayed on Gomer Pyle USMC, and on the Andy Griffith Show. This man can flat out sing. I loved his version of "My Cup Runneth Over", which I already owned by Ed Ames. I like Nabors' version as well, or better. He really shines on songs such as "The Lord's Prayer," "The Impossible Dream," and "You'll Never Walk Alone." If you want to hear a cd by a singer who puts some gusto in every song he sings, do yourself a favor and buy this cd!

Jim Nabors truly has done his listeners justice. This is a collection of some of the best songs that can take you back down memory lane and make you glad you went. I never get tired of hearing the songs on this CD. It seems to get better with every listening session. This is definately the Jim Nabors CD to add to your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Angelic Voice Overflowing With Passion! December 13, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Jim Nabors is etched in most Americans' minds as the happy-go-lucky Gomer Pyle. For too long his finest talent has been overlooked, and this CD is a good start if you want to become familiar with Jim Nabors "The Vocalist."
On the surface, this CD appears to be a companion to Mom & Dad's old Perry Como LPs. But what separates Nabors from the rest of the feelgood pack is his ability to add an unorthodox element of anger to tunes like "The Impossible Dream." That said,listen to this album with your utmost attention. Don't just put this set on as background music while doing chores. If you do,you are missing the true experience of Jim Nabor's seething baritone hiss that is the tantrum of a fed up generation.
Nabors take on "The Impossible Dream" is the first rendition I've heard that cries the lyrics in anger and despair, capturing the inward pain and assault that results from chasing society's intangible holy grails. The deep focus and subtle collapse of soul in his voice is cutting, painful, raw. I can only compare the pure uncut energy he injects into "The Impossible Dream" to Iggy Pop singing "China Girl."
If you want to hear a blatant example of the emotional anarchy that Jim Nabors should be appreciated for, you should sample "Love is Blue," where man's self-destructive behavior is prepared and served by Jim Nabors faster than instant oatmeal.
The pain and regret pleads obvious with Jim's unique ability to add a haunting Guajardian low-note that is just short of a societal scolding.
Society pretends to change, all the while retaining the skin it claims to have shed. Yet the former Gomer Pyle truly does shed the vile snakeskin that is our pride in most of these songs.

For fans of Jim Nabors, this is the choice collection of covers. For those unfamiliar with this great vocalist's work, this is the CD to introduce you to the artist that does more than merely cover a repetetive rendition of memorable song; he transforms one dimensional works of emotional aria into unbridled Jungian archetypes. I feel anarchic awakening when Mr. Nabors rips open "Try to Remember;" he takes a sugary hit from the musical "The Fantastiks" and, with the sheer emotion and ironic overstatement in his voice, breaks open the song's true message. We no longer hear a song about mindless romantic recollections, we hear a seething matriarchal sword dethrone the greedy corporate masters that force us to retain our emotional needs in the name of modern repressive society. Similarly, "The Impossible Dream" was never the same since Jim Nabor's rendition. Even Jacques Brel couldn't match the Quixotic cum Descartian war cry that in essence declares "Hands off my soul, you corrupt politicians with your crumbling manifestos; I pour detergent into my own laundry of sins, no other shall bathe my psychological being!" This said, I melted like a child when he breaks into "Love is Blue." No message to cut into the depths of our awareness, just a simple song that melts us into the innocent young lovers we once were.

5.0 out of 5 stars Relaxing December 31, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love Jim Nabors as a singer and an actor. He is funny in the Andy Griffith Show and funnier in Gomer Pyle U.S.M.C.. I watched one of his music videos and his old interviews. It was surprising to watch him live on T.V. at the super bull. I love his classic Christmas songs and his regular songs have a calming effect on me.

I bought this for two songs from an album my grandfather bought me years ago. While those songs were terrific, I must ask why they used songs that were done in Spanish for America? Read more
