Finally. A CD of Eddy Howard with decent sound. We can't expect
glorious sound from recordings made in the 1945 era, but this is
very listenable.
Brought back vivid memories of seeing Eddy live at the Aragon in
Chicago in 1945. I just wish "So Long For Now" was on the CD and
that it'd switch to Hal Pearl playing the Aragon Organ between
sets. What a wonderful time and place.

If you don't already own an Eddy Howard collection, this would be a great start to your soon-to-be favorite big band singer. It's a mystery why so many people have never heard of Eddy Howard, yet recognize his hits when they hear them. Mr. Howard died too young, but left us with beautiful memories in song. When I purchased my CD player a decade ago, Eddy Howard was one of the first artist's work I searched for on CD to replace my well-loved old LPs. He was so hard to find on CD! Take advantage of what is available to us now. You will love the sweet sound of Eddy's ballads. So long for now.....see you later in my dreams......

Format: Audio CD
Eddy Howard, who died at the tender age of 48 in 1963 from a cerebral hemorrhage, began his career as a band singer, first with Ben Bernie and then with Dick Jurgens and His Orchestra [1934 to 1940]. You can hear him on Careless (which he wrote) and Bluebirds In The Moonlight on the Jurgens CD Here's That Band Again.

His first attempt at forming his own band in 1941 was aborted by WW II, but with the war's end he formed another group and soon had a contract with Majestic Records. And what a début. To Each His Own shot to # 1 in July/August of 1946 and stayed there for 8 weeks, remaining on the charts for an incredible 25 weeks. That same year he scored with The Rickety Rickshaw Man, [I Love You] For Sentimental Reasons, and My Best To You - the latter not in this collection. 1947 was even better with no less than seven Top 25 hits, highlighted by My Adobe Hacienda and I Wonder, I Wonder, I Wonder, both of which went to # 2.

In 1948, after Now Is The Hour, Just Because, and Put 'Em In A Box, Tie 'Em With A Ribbon [And Throw 'Em In The Deep Blue Sea] also made the Top 25, he switched to Mercury, and from November of that year to early 1954 he was seldom off the charts, racking up another 27 hits. The best of these - [I'd Love To Get You] On A Slow Boat To China [1948], Room Full Of Roses, Maybe It's Because [1949], To Think You've Chosen Me [1950], Sin [1951], Be Anything [But Be Mine] and Auf Wiederseh'n Sweetheart [1952] all made the Top 10, with Sin repeating the success of his first hit by going to # 1 for eight weeks in October/November of 1951.

All we need now from Mercury is a volume 2 containing the 20 hits NOT included in this CD.

Eddy Howard was, from all accounts, one of the truly nice guys of the music business.

This album sorted out sanity vs loud insanity in most instances comparing the old fashioned music and the mod mix of rap and rock of today's world. Music is a generational thing and I am an old timer that thrives on the mix of many wind and string instruments vs guitars, guitars and more guitars. Why they put "Happy Birthday" on this album is beyond me, but the rest of the cuts are pure enjoyment. It set me in the mood of pleasant song lyrics and arrangements so much that I am now buying more of the 30's and 40's bands that I either missed or forgot about.
This gives me a moving music experience

For those of you who, like me, were teenagers in the 1940's, you will find this CD to be a great musical representation of those romantic years. For those of you who were born decades later, you'll find, here, a sampling of the tunes, voice and singing style that had your parents or grandparents swooning in their youth. While some thought that Eddy Howard was a bit "square" (to use an expression of the times) I find his plaintive, mellow singing style to be a distinct pleasure to listen to or to dance cheek-to-cheek to. Starting with the lead song on this disc, "To Each His Own," a big Eddy Howard hit, you will find this disc to be a great fireside listen on a stormy night. Or, as my wife and I did when we first listened, you might just get up and dance and croon around your living room, remembering the great loves and passions of your youth.

The silky soft sound of Eddy Howard on this recording is a reminder of what is missing in the music of today. I was fortunate to have heard him in person, and this CD brings it all back. Al
