Title - 'The Best of Jim Nabors' (Columbia/Legacy)
Artist - Jim Nabors
This collection is a musthave for long-standing fans of Jim's beautiful voice. I once had the opportunity of seeing him LIVE at the local armory, and I will never forget the power of his beautiful singing, and neither will anyone else who was there. On the surface, this CD appears to be a companion to Mom & Dad's old Perry Como LPs. But what separates Nabors from the rest of the feelgood pack is his ability to add an unorthodox element of anger to tunes like "The Impossible Dream." That said, listen to this album with your utmost attention. Don't just put this set on as background music while doing chores. If you do,you are missing the true experience of Jim Nabor's seething baritone hiss that is the tantrum of a fed up generation.
