All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
This discount-priced two-fer reissue combines two albums Robert Goulet released originally on Columbia Records in the early '60s; Always You, Goulet's debut LP, appeared in 1961, and In Person, a live collection, was his fifth full-length disc in 1963. Goulet came to belated recognition with his featured role as Lancelot in the Broadway musical Camelot, but when he did he became a big star due to his dark good looks and powerful baritone. Columbia producer Frank DeVol took advantage of that voice on Always You, having Goulet record show tunes and old-time standards and bathing them all in string arrangements that the singer had no trouble dominating. At the time, that ...

Goulet came to belated recognition with his featured role as Lancelot in the Broadway musical Camelot, but when he did he became a big star due to his dark good looks and powerful baritone. Columbia producer Frank DeVol took advantage of that voice on Always You, having Goulet record show tunes and old-time standards and bathing them all in string arrangements that the singer had no trouble dominating. At the time, that was more than enough to keep Always You in the charts for over a year, but 40 years later listeners may wish that the material held up as well as the vocalist, although "And This Is My Beloved" from Kismet and "It's All in the Game" have weathered the decades. The songs on In Person are even more noticeably a mixture of the good and mediocre. Goulet's act was written by Jerry Bresler and Lyn Duddy, who imposed a handful of their forgettable songs on him. Happily, they also left room for such standards as "All or Nothing at All," "Soliloquy" from Carousel, and a medley of Lerner & Loewe show tunes, including "Almost Like Being in Love." Goulet also sang his single "What Kind of Fool Am I?" and inevitably concluded with his Camelot signature song, "If Ever I Would Leave You." So, as a 76-minute Robert Goulet collection, this CD definitely has its moments, even though you have to wade through some less-than-memorable patches to hear them.

    For Connoisseurs of Songs of Unsurpassed Beauty,...

    [commenting on the first part of this combo album - which I owned on vinyl]: The late Mr. Robert Goulet was blessed with a voice that enabled him to transport the listener to a far-off land of ineffable beauty in these songs, especially those based on the haunting melodies by "classical" composers: Ravel "The Lamp Is Low" Borodin "And This Is My Beloved" Leoncavallo "You're Breaking My Heart" Rachmaninoff "Full Moon & Empty Arms" Lecuona "The Breeze & I" Grieg "Strange Music" Tchaikovsky "Story of a Starry Night", "If You Are But a Dream". Not to have these melodies deposited in your mind's memory bank means you are a pauper when it comes to REAL music! - the kind that gets you out of emotional or spiritual debt in "hard" times! And most ESPECIALLY Tchaikovsky's "ALWAYS YOU" - the song above all others on here that preeminently RECOMMENDS this album. And makes it "outstanding"... You MUST OWN this if you love the most beautiful sound of the male baritone voice - and Goulet had that in spades! - combined in his blessed rendering of these songs rescued from the past. Music for "old" souls - whatever their "actual" age is in their present (re)incarnation!

    Early Goulet

    The Barnes and Noble review is right on, and there isn't much to add. However, I believe that the "In Person" live album was actually recorded in 1962 not 1961 as the liner notes indicate. The best live album of Mr Goulet's is the "Traveling On Tour" one released on vinyl in 1966, as by that time he was far more comfortable in front of an audience than he is on the "In Person" album.The "Always You" album shows that Columbia wasn't quite sure how to package their new recording artist. In fact he didn't find his niche until his third album "Sincerely Yours". All in all, this is a cd that is certainly worth buying, as Mr. Goulet was, and still is, a stage actor who had the voice and appeal to make it in the pop arena. Very few have over the years.
