• Guy LOMBARDO & HIS ROYAL CANADIANS - Get Out Those Old Records - Fifty Of His Many Greatest Hits

Guy Lombardo and his Royal Canadians were one of the leading dance bands of their day. They had 218 hits of their own on the American Charts, of which 50 can be found here The recordings on this collection were all made for Decca, for whom Guy recorded in 1934 & 1935, then from 1938 to the end of his hit-making career in the 1950's.Even if you are new to Guy's music, fans of the music of that era will recognise some of the songs. In those days, it was customary for several versions to be in the charts simultaneously, so some of these songs also charted for the likes for Jo Stafford, Dinah Shore, Bing Crosby and others. Sometimes Guy ended up with the biggest hit, sometimes not. When it comes to whose version was best, it's all a matter of personal preference. In any case, all of them are brilliant in different ways.
