The centerfold of the liner notes for this CD is a montage of more than a dozen Lettermen album covers. The rest of the notes has some nice color pictures of the trio, and a simple list of the 23 "best of" songs, beginning with "The Way You Look Tonight," recorded in February of 1961 (which reached #13 on the pop charts), and ending chronologically with "If You Feel the Way I Do," recorded in August, 1975. In between are consistently popular (all accompanied) romantic "slow dance" songs, "When I Fall In Love" (#7 on the charts), "Come Back Silly Girl" (#17), "Silly Boy" (#81), "Theme from A Summer Place" (#16), "Sealed with a Kiss," "Medley: Goin' Out of My Head/Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You" (#7), "Put Your Head On My Shoulder" (#44), "Hurt So Bad" (#12) and John Lennon's "Love" (#42). There's no bio or history of the group, it's assumed we know all about their remarkable career, and lets this sincere, possibly sappy, romantic music speak for itself. Fair enough! Those of us who have slow danced to this music will always be touched by it - the sweet harmonies, the lyrical sentiments of young love, the sweeping orchestral strings, oboes and horns-it chronicles a simpler time, a time of innocence and sweet music to fall in and out of love to.
