Hailing from London, Ontario, Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians would have their first hit record in the fall of 1927. Incredibly, there would be 217 more charted hits over the next 27 years!!! The band would continue with live performances until 1977. What accounted for the enduring popularity of this outfit? After all, most of the critics dismissed Guy Lombardo's music as "trite and predictable" and dubbed him "The King of Corn". And many big band afficianados never really took him seriously either. But the record buying public loved him!! In fact, it has been estimated that over 100,000,000 Lombardo recordings have been sold!!!

Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians recorded for 4 different record labels over the years. This collection features 16 of his biggest hits on Decca between 1934 and 1954. These original recordings having been lovingly remastered for your enjoyment. There are 7 #1 hits here including ""Penny Serenade", "What's The Reason (I'm Not Pleasin' You), "Red Sails In The Sunset" and one of my all-time favorites "The Band Played On". The package also includes a nicely done 12 page booklet.

Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians were one of the most successful recording acts of the last millenium. "Guy Lombardo: Enjoy Yourself" should be included in any serious collection of 20th century American popular music. And while there are several discs currently available I feel that this is easily the best of the bunch. Recommended.

This is a band leader who, prior to the emergence of the national Billboard Pop charts in 1940, registered well over 140 hit singles on what then passed for such listing (such as the Record Buyers Guide), no less than 21 of them # 1 hits. Then, from 1940 to 1954 he added another 73, including three more # 1s. It is estimated that, in singles alone [78/45rpm] he has sold over 100,000,000, easily making his the most commercially successful big band of all time.

Critics back then loved to pan his music, calling him "The King Of Corn" but as Joseph F. Laredo [my favourite liner note writer] says in his seven pages "For each critic of the Lombardo band's approach, there must have been at least a thousand admirers of every description imaginable. Jazz purists and all hipsters who decry the Lombardo sound as terminally square will be tormented until the end of their days knowing that Louis Armstrong was an ardent Lombardo booster." He then goes on to quote Louis, who said in writing, "Guy Lombardo and his band has always been my favorite band ... [and that brother Lebert] has always been in my mind as my first chair man in my dream band if he ever leaves the Guy."

Obviously, any attempt to completely cover his hits would require a 10-disc box set, but this one, with excellent sound reproduction, offers up original renditions of some of his best from 1934 to 1950 and, in the insert, shows you recording dates and label details. Not one of the selections offered from tracks 1 to 16 finished lower than # 10 [that was track 1]. Number one hits are represented at tracks 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 11 and 15, while # 2 hits are at tracks 8 to 10. The others were: track 5 [# 6], track 12 [# 7], track 13 [# 5], and track 14 [# 8].

Though most of Guy Lombardo's top chart hits not included here, you may really ENJOY YOURSELF when you listen it. "Enjoy Yourself" is amazing, and "Red Sails In the Sunset" is beautiful. Moreover, Guy's version of "Harbor Light" may give you a different experience with Platter's version.

Don't know much about the other songs on the cd, but this remastered version of Enjoy Yourself (It's later than you think) is too funny. It's got great horns, a cha cha/latino sound and lyrics that will make you laugh out loud. If ever there was a warning song for fast paced career driven 90's people--this is it.

I'll try not to make this too long. About 3 years ago I adopted a dog. It took me the longest time to find a name for her. As you might guess, I named her Bella. Every once in awhile I look at her and think, "I could have named you Dixie" because she was rescued from Alabama. Or, "I could have named you Ginger" because she's the color of ginger or maybe a strawberry blond. Now that brought to mind a song that I grew up with many, many moons ago, called The Band Played On. First line of the song being "Casey would waltz with a strawberry blond and the band played on". And I thought, "I could have named you Casey (even though Casey wasn't the strawberry blond). Seems I'm making a long story longer. Anyway, I did some research and found Guy Lombardo recorded the song on an album called "Enjoy Yourself". I bought it from Amazon and found every one of the songs brought back fond memories. All you 1940 babies would love this album. It includes Red Sails In The Sunset, Enjoy Yourself (It's Later Than You Think), Harbor Lights, Red Roses For A Blue Lady, Anniversary Song, and many others (17 in all) including Guy Lombardo's classic Auld Lang Syne. There is nothing that I don't like about this album. And yes, Bella is still Bella.
