    Not Anka’s Best…., February 21, 2005

    Although it’s nice to have most of Anka’s RCA Victor singles collected on one cd, some of these songs are not really very good at all. Anka can’t really blame the British Invasion for his poor chart showings after 1962. Just give a listen to a waste of good vinyl like “Hello Jim” or “At Night” to see that Anka waxed some real clunkers for RCA. Also, missing from this CD is Anka’s pretty good version of “Goodnight My Love” from early 1969. On a more positive note, these tracks sound a bit better here than on the old Rhino “30th Anniversary” disc from the late 80′s. Like the other reviewer said, stick with “30th Anniversary” unless you’ve just GOT to have all of these Victor tracks. One other note: two versions of “Remember Diana” appear on this disc; the more familiar single version and an alternate take that I’ve never heard. The track is listed only once on the CD.

    I don’t have this one but I know most of the songs. Thanks Heaven RCA didn’t include none of the awful re-recordings from the ABC Paramount hits. Two things are left, Goodnight My Love version from which I had once the vynil copy and most of all, an obscure but finest song from RCA as it was “Sylvia”, I guess it was a B-side. Can anyone tell me where can I find this one? Regards. Raúl
