Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Campbell
Collectables Classics: The Very Best of John Gary is a limited-edition four-CD box set with 92 songs that collects the following seven albums from the pop crooner: Catch a Rising Star, Encore, The Nearness of You, Sings Your All Time Favorite Songs, A Heart Filled with Song, Choice, and The John Gary Carnegie Hall Concert. Whether there are enough rabid fans to warrant such an elaborate set could be argued, but the Collectables label should be given credit for keeping easy listening titles like these in print for those who want them.
