The Very Best of Vaughn Monroe

All Music Guide - Cub Koda
If ever there was a musical populist of the big-band era who managed to hang on into the rock & roll era, it was bandleader/vocalist Vaughn Monroe. Monroe's pleasant baritone vocalizing fit like a glove around the smooth love ballads that his band played, scoring numerous hits 70 all told well into the late '50s.

Monroe's style was pure vanilla and his honey-toned baritone always found the right tune for his style, and rather than chasing trends the only one here deviating from formula is 1954's "They Were Doin' the Mambo", he found his niche and didn't stray far from it, giving the people a simple, recognizable style that was easy to digest. Vaughn Monroe is one of RCA Victor's best-selling artists of all time, and his legacy is well served by this wonderful little set.

    OOOOOOOHHHHHHHH

    OOOOOOOHHHHHH, THIS ALBUM IS GREAT. I REMEMBER BACK IN MY DAY MY SOON TO BE HUSBAND PICKED ME UP FOR OUR FIRST DATE. IT WAS 1945 AND I REMEMBER GOING TO A SHOW AND DINNER. THEN AFTER THAT WE WENT TO PURDUE FOR A WHILE AND THIS IS THE ALBUM THAT WAS PLAYING ON THE RADIO. IT WAS SO GREAT LISTENING TO VAUGHN MONROE AND THE CHICKENS IN THE BACKGROUND AT PURDUE. THAT WAS THE FIRST TIME I EVER GOT HOME LATE AND BACK IN THOSE DAYS IT WAS FROWNED UPON, BUT AFTER HEARING VAUGHN IT DIDNT MATTER TO ME. BLESS VAUGHN AND ALL HIS MUSICAL TALENTS.
