Over twenty of songwriter Rod McKuen's greatest hits available here on one CD. This Dutch import features songs from his award-winning career including "Champion Charlie Brown" and "Seasons in the Sun."
Oh my. This has to be the largest Rod McKuen's "greatest-hits" package ever assembled. No; it's not that he didn't have them. Who could forget the croaking glory of his voice in "I'll Catch the Sun," or his turgid collaboration with French Schlockmeister Francis Lai on "I Think of You"? But then there are his wonderfully honorable tunes, the ones he authored, such as his beautiful "Jean," "Cycles," and "Rock Gently," and his written collaboration with the late, great L‚o Ferr‚ on "About the Time." Oh yes; there are far more than that, and they are all here: all of the collaborative writing credits with Jacques Brel, such as "If You Go Away," "Seasons in the Sun," and "Amsterdam." There are 22 cuts in all. It could have been whittled down to perhaps 16 or 18 -- but then, too much is better than not enough. Recommended. ~ Thom Jurek
