When You're Smiling

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - William Pearl
Regis Philbin wears a number of hats in his career, but his vocalizing may be the most surprising to his many fans. The fact that Mr. Television hasn’t made an album since 1968 may have a great deal to do with that. On When You’re Smiling, Philbin indulges his passion for popular song, and, as with nearly everything this man with the golden touch applies himself to, the results are strikingly successful. Produced by Steve Tyrell, the album allows Philbin to pay tribute to two personal vocal inspirations: Bing Crosby and Dean Martin. He also finds room for nods to Sinatra (“You Make Me Feel So Young”), Louis Armstrong (“When You're Smiling”), and other icons of American...

The fact that Mr. Television hasn’t made an album since 1968 may have a great deal to do with that. On When You’re Smiling, Philbin indulges his passion for popular song, and, as with nearly everything this man with the golden touch applies himself to, the results are strikingly successful. Produced by Steve Tyrell, the album allows Philbin to pay tribute to two personal vocal inspirations: Bing Crosby and Dean Martin. He also finds room for nods to Sinatra (“You Make Me Feel So Young”), Louis Armstrong (“When You're Smiling”), and other icons of American popular singing. Affectionate duets have their place here also --- Ronan Tynan of the Irish Tenors pitches in on “Toora Loora Loora,” and Phibin’s wife, Joy, joins him for “They Can’t Take That Away from Me.” Throughout this snappy, unpretentious, and eminently likable project, this giant of the small screen exudes the same high spirits that have made him a pop culture legend.
All Music Guide - David Jeffries
What makes Regis Philbin such a great "everyman" on television is his ability to bounce between professional and spontaneous. If he's confused he wears it on his sleeve; if he's frustrated you'll know it. Philbin takes a totally different attitude when it comes to singing. His first album in over 30 years finds him being more agreeable than expected and doing very little of that great ad-libbing, which is a shame. That doesn't keep When You're Smiling from being a pleasant listen, but it's more pleasant than fun and if there's one thing Regis does right, it's fun. He refers to producer Steve Tyrell as a perfectionist in the liner notes, and he's right. There isn't a bum note on When You're Smiling, but there isn't an off-the-cuff moment, either. Regis keeps it simple and still has his voice, the small jazz combo and string orchestra backing him are lush, and trumpeter Warren Vaché's presence makes the collection all the richer. Now just imagine the lively studio banter that must have been going on or what one or two irreverent, uptempo numbers could have done for the album. The standard-filled set does satisfy with a collection of songs that mean a lot to Philbin; his desire to bring out every last drop of sentimentality in the tunes is up-front and charming. Tyrell's production is both elegant and cool and Philbin's duet with Irish tenor Ronan Tynan on "Too Ra Loo Ra Loo Ral" will put a tear in the corner of Mother's eye. Not playing to his strengths is a strange move for Philbin, one that might be explained by his lifelong ambition to be a "serious" singer. You'll miss the glib Regis and his lust for life, but a huge heart, reverence for the music, and warm voice keep When You're Smiling from being just another celebrity disaster.

    Righteous, Regis!

    Regis Philbin is very well known for his talk show on ABC, "Live with Regis and Kelly" and for hosting "Who Wants to Be A Millionaire". But when it comes to singing, he's got the voice for it. These songs sung by one of America's most popular television icons are more in the genre of Swing and Jazz. All in all, he's radical singing his renditions of some old tunes of the past. I don't care how bad Regis's singing is, he sure can swing the scene.

    Great CD! Regis can sing!

    I love this CD, very upbeat renditions of some of the old standards. The vocals are great as are the musicians. Class act all the way. Regis' version of "Too Ra Loo Ra Loo Ra" will bring tears to your eyes.

    The Reege has a voice, and a good one at that!

    If Mr. Philbin ever wishes to pursue a singing career after the talkshow gigs are over, this album surely points him in the right direction, for the cat can sing! "You Make Me Feel So Young" showcases his talents effectively, his vocals blending in nicely with the arrangements. Mrs. Regis(a/k/a Joy Philbin) lends her duet skills to "They Can't Take That Away From Me", also Regis proves that "Pennies From Heaven" really do happen, if only metaphorically! Regis definitely blows Mr. Shatner away when it comes to vocalizing!

    WoW!!!

    I was reserving judgement until I heard the entire album for myself. Well that day came and I can honestly say that this cd, like everything else Regis touches is poop. Stay in the bowels of showbiz that is talk tv sir, it's your true calling. At the end of the day, I only feel shame because I bought this and anger for Regis making it.
