5.0 out of 5 stars A SPARKLE OF ED AMES DIAMOND CAREER! July 12, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Ed Ames is an unrivalled singer among the greatest male singers. And for many reasons: his absolute professionalism, his deep humanity that transcends his singing, his emotional, tasty, gracious, evocative style, the conviction he puts in each song, viewed as a work in itself. His voice is like the seasons, being like a light breeze or capable of thundering. He has the classicism and elegance of Bing Crosby, but he can really belt! It must be said that he made over 30 disks, and therefore the songs of the CD, though representative, are far from exhausting all what he sang, changing each song, even the more modern one, into a definite standard. Ed Ames was a tremendous, impressive artist who must be rediscovered and considered as one of this century's greatest singers. He must not be seen just as one of those retro singers. He is a great and rare entertainer, capable of bringing joy or stirring the soul. BUY THIS CD and let's hope that his numerous other disks will be released as CDs too! He deserves the best!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great balladeer March 21, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ed Ames originally made his name as one of the Ames brothers but continued as a solo singer after his brothers quit. He had several solo hits in the America during the sixties, where his albums also sold well. His hits were usually songs from musicals, but he made no impact in Britain. On this CD, you get two of his original albums plus two of his other hits.
Who will answer, My cup runneth over, Try to remember and Time time were among Ed's American hits. All of them are included here. He had other hits that are not included here. Most of the other songs here are covers.
Among the great covers of contemporary pop songs here are Blowing in the wind (Bob Dylan), Yesterday (Beatles), Monday Monday (Mamas and Papas), Massachusetts (Bee Gees), Cherish (Association), The other man's grass is always greener (Petula), Can't take my eyes off you (Andy Williams) and There's a kind of hush (Herman's hermits, later covered by the Carpenters).
Show songs are also well represented, including In the arms of love (from What did you do in the war Daddy), Au revoir (from Sherry), Watch what happens (from The umbrellas of Cherbourg), Melinda (from On a clear day you can see forever), True love (from High society) and Edelweiss (from Sound of music).
This is a wonderful collection. I wish more of his original albums were available on CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT VALUE WITH MORE SONGS January 13, 2000
By Boz
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Of the two albums available, this is the better buy. It includes the complete songs from two lps, most importantly, "Who Will Answer" and "Try To Remember" which are not on the album MY CUP RUNNETH OVER.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very underrated "sleeper"! December 3, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Ed Ames has to be the most underrated singers of the last century. His voice is as close to flawless - clear, full and resonant. The musical selections perfectly suit his style. I grew up watching him as Mingo on "Daniel Boone" and listening to his music on both 33rpm and 8 track. On CD he sounds better than ever. He must surely be considered a "sleeper" who could still support a strong niche today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ames' Deep Voice is Superb August 21, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Ed Ames'deep voice offers male vocals at their best. The immensely thoughtful and reflective "Who Will Answer?" provides a stunning target for his talent,as do"Try to Remember" and "My Cup Runneth Over",two of his best-known hits from Broadway shows.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb song stylist/performer October 24, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I have been a fan of Ed Ames since the 60's when his solo albums began appearing....and still consider him one of the finest vocalists of this century--largely undiscovered for the talent that he is. Perhaps his talent as an actor helped him put such emotion in his songs, but I still get goose bumps listening to some of those old (now scratchy) albums. I too would like to see much more of his work appear on CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rich Wonderous Baritone December 19, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have a good many of his recordings including ones not mentioned here. His voice is one of strength and color that seems to be lost in the music of today. You just don't hear many baritones anymore and his is exceptional in that it ranges from low tenor to high bass. I wish you had more selections to choose from.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Finest Vocalist of the 20th Century April 30, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This CD is a good representation of Ed Ame's music. It is a shame that more of his recordings haven't been made available on CDs. I agree with the other reviews shown here as to his talent. It has not gotten the appreciation that he deserves. Buy this CD!

4.0 out of 5 stars Who Will Answer - Ed Ames
I really wanted to have this on CD - have had it for years on a 45! It does not seem to be "remastered" but it fills the bill, so to speak, so am glad to have it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Two-fer with a split personality
The only real problem with this two-fer album is that it has a split personality. The first half of the album is Ed's 1967 "Who Will Answer" album, arranged by Perry Botkin, Jr. Read more
