“Showcase Of Hits” by Frankie Laine - album review

TJR says

Frank Harvey's sickeningly enthusiastic liner notes would make you wary before a note was heard:

For innumerable reasons Frankie Laine's "Showcase" will remain for many years to come a treasured souvenir - not only for his countless fans. but all admirers of versatility in lusty, full-throated vocal power. Listen to Laine - and absorb every pulsating second of his thrilling style - so widely impersonated, but never improved upon!

Don't believe the hyperbole.
