Collectables Records' seven-CD collection Only the Best of Eddie Fisher is a box set in only the most literal sense; the discount reissue label simply has put a light cardboard shell around its seven previously released Eddie Fisher discs and marketed them as a single package. The title is something of a misnomer, since it suggests a highly selective compilation, when in fact this one is wide-ranging, containing 163 tracks (with some repetition) at a running time of nearly seven and a half hours. In the liner notes that are reprinted with slight variations in the booklets of six of the CDs, Robert W. Rice states, "Eddie Fisher was not an album maker, in the generic sense." True, Fisher was for the most part a singles artist. Yet Collectables' scheme for its 2002 reissue series (which ran to six discs, the seventh being a straight reissue of the 1960 album Tonight with Eddie Fisher that the label came out with in 2000) was to reproduce Fisher's LP releases for RCA Victor Records of the 1950s and 1960s, usually presenting two to a CD. (When Fisher got started in the early '50s, the standard LP format was an 8" platter containing eight songs, which could allow for three of them to fit on a single CD.) Thus, this collection includes the solo LPs Eddie Fisher Sings (1952), I'm in the Mood for Love (1952), Christmas with Eddie Fisher (1952), Eddie Fisher Sings Irving Berlin Favorites (1953), May I Sing to You (1953), Eddie Fisher Sings Academy Award Winning Songs (1955), I Love You (1955), Thinking of You (1957), As Long as There's Music (1958), Tonight with Eddie Fisher (1960), Games That Lovers Play (1966), People Like You (1967), and You Ain't Heard Nothin' Yet! (1968), plus the soundtrack album Bundle of Joy (1956), the EPs Broadway Classics (1954) and A Girl, a Girl (1954), and the one-off single "Christmas Eve in My Hometown" (1953). What it does not include from this era are Eddie Fisher at the Winter Garden (1963), issued on his own Ramrod Records label, anything from his 1965-1967 stint on Dot Records, or a few stray singles for other labels. Curiously, it is also missing some of Fisher's biggest hit singles. Only Thinking of You was a hits compilation, and so, amazingly, the Fisher Top Tens "Any Time," "Tell Me Why," "I'm Yours," "Lady of Spain," "Outside of Heaven," "Even Now," "Downhearted," "Count Your Blessings (Instead of Sheep)," "Heart," "Dungaree Doll," and "Cindy, Oh Cindy" are all missing from a massive album called Only the Best of Eddie Fisher. Well, never mind the silly title, then. The package presents an opportunity to obtain the bulk of Fisher's RCA recordings in one place, and he's actually better essaying the Tin Pan Alley standards and show tunes that make up much of his LPs than the second-rate material he was saddled with for his singles, even if they were popular at the time. ~ William Ruhlmann
