A Big Treat for Ray Stevens Fans

Most of us are familiar with Ray Stevens' big hits "Ahab The Arab", "Santa Claus Is Watching You", and some will even remember "Harry, The Hairy Ape". But the real treat on this CD is the inclusion of "Butch Babarian" and "Speed Ball", two songs that got very little (if any) airplay on the radio. Both are every bit as clever and funny as any of his better-known hits. And while this CD is titled ALL-TIME HITS, there are certainly a few of his other hits missing, notably "Gitarzan". But this CD is worth twice the price I paid, not only for the gems included but also for the fact that these are not re-recordings or live versions, as is the case on some of Stevens' other so-called Greatest Hits collections. These are the original versions. I highly recommend it.
