Biography

Tony Bennett: DUETS II

Less than ten months before he would celebrate his 85th birthday, Tony Bennett stood on the field of AT&T Park in San Francisco during the 7th inning of the first game of the 2010 World Series between the Giants and Texas Rangers (San Francisco would go on to win the championship in 5 games). This was his second time “at bat” during the game. ... Read more in Amazon's Tony Bennett Store

Subsequent albums also amaze, with the excellence, class and good taste never diminished.
Carole Del Monte
Tony Bennett remains one of the world's greatest entertainers ever; and we are all better off for his sharing his talents with us.
Matthew G. Sherwin
This CD compilation is just a "taste" of Tony's successful fifties and sixties recordings.

16 Most Requested Songs by Tony Bennett gives us sixteen of Tony's greatest hits--and most requested songs, too! The sound quality is really good and it baffles me that this album is currently out of print. The artwork is great, too.

"Stranger In Paradise" gets the royal treatment from Tony who sings this passionately with a fine musical accompaniment. The backup vocalists harmonize so well and Tony never misses a beat! "Rags To Riches" was always one of my favorite Tony Bennett songs; it makes me smile when I hear this and I predict that you'll enjoy "Rags To Riches" also. Listen also for "Just In Time:" Tony does so well on this that you really get the sense of the wonderful operatic qualities of his voice. Great!

"I Left My Heart In San Francisco" is, of course, a Tony Bennett standard; and he gives this the royal treatment a ballad this fine deserves. Tony sings this with exceptional sensitivity and his delivery is flawless. What a great number! "I Wanna Be Around" is a stunning love ballad that will make you want to dance with your sweetheart; the arrangement for the piano is excellent and Tony sing this so well it can break your heart.

"For Once In My Life" has Tony performing a very well done cover of the famous Stevie Wonder song; this gets a much slower tempo than Stevie gave it but it all works very well and this shines like gold when Tony sings it! Stevie would be proud. In addition, "Smile" stuns me with its beauty; Tony delivers this with panache and all the gracefulness of a highly polished entertainer.

"Tender Is The Night" has a great arrangement for the strings as Tony sings this well; and "The Shadow Of Your Smile" is wonderfully romantic when Tony Bennett performs it!

This is a great album - the essential Tony Bennett. It does miss a few good tunes such as IF I RULED THE WORLD and one of his favorites - When Joanna loved me.

I was raised on Tony Bennett records when I was young. My dad was a WWII veteran who liked Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, and Benny Goodman. Tony was a product of that generation. Many of the great crooners, such as Bing, Nat, Frank, Dino, and Perry, are gone now. Tony is all that is left from that wonderful period of big-time crooners. He recorded George Gershwin, Cole Porter, and Johnny Mercer songs, similar to the other singers. However, no one could do it better than Tony. It is no wonder that Frank Sinatra called him "the greatest singer around". This CD compilation is just a "taste" of Tony's successful fifties and sixties recordings. I would tend to agree with critics that there should be a two volume CD release - Volume I (1950-1958) and Volume II (1958-1965). I also think that his 1994 comeback on MTV is worth a look too. He still has got it.

Most songs are top notch except LOVE STORY could have been dumped for WHEN JOANNA LOVED ME.
Why doesn't Columbia come out with a TONY's GREATEST HITS VOL. 1 (1950-1958) and VOL.2 (1959-1965) collection to cover all the great ones?

You can never go wrong with Tony - took the Cd in my daughter's Easter Basket - habit for 50 years - and she was so thrilled. He is one of the big collector's items so I heard from her friends in LA. I'm all for collecting them as his voice is just terrific and so is this CD All go out and buy one. Val Luttrell

Really like the music! The only complaint would be that this order had 2 other CDs on it and two of the three jewel cases were cracked in shipment. Too much of a hassle to return so I kept it. No more CDs for me from Amazon!

If these are his 16 most requested songs, you couldn't change that, but the CD could have been his 20 most requested songs and included a few other big hits. Also, there could have been more than one page of liner notes (which was a brief but interesting history of Tony).

Here are the peak positions (as single songs) on the Billboard 100 (BB) and Adult Contemporary (AC) charts for the years indicated in parentheses:

1. Because of You (1951) #1 BB
2. Stranger in Paradise (1953) #2 BB
3. Rags to Riches (1953) #1 BB
4. Boulevard of Broken Dreams (1950)
5. Cold, Cold Heart (1951) #1 BB
6. Just in Time (1956) #46 BB
7. I Left My Heart in San Francisco (1962) #19 BB (#7 AC)
8. I Wanna Be Around (1963) #14 BB (#5 AC)
9. Who Can I Turn to (1964) #33 BB (#3 AC)
10. For Once in My Life (1967) #91 BB
11. This Is All I Ask (1963) #70 BB
12. Smile (1959) #73 BB
13. Tender Is the Night (1962)
14. The Shadow of Your Smile (1965) #95 BB (#8 AC)
15. Love Story (1971) #114 BB
16. The Good Life (1963) #18 BB (#7 AC)

This CD includes all of Tony's number one BB hits, 4 out of 7 of his top ten, and 8 our of 25 of his top 40.

Here are four songs that I might suggest be added to produce "20 most requested songs".

In the Middle of an Island (1957) #9 BB
There'll Be No Teardrops Tonight (1954) #7 BB
Can You Find It in Your Heart (1956) #16 BB
Solitaire (1951) #17 BB
