The King
As Soon as I heard Jon sing "Welcome to my World" with his great, powerful and tender voice, my memory took me back to the Hawaiian Concert 1973, when Elvis was performing the same song, looking like the king that he is with his charming looks and amazing voice while everyone in the audience was going crazy over his dashing good looks and angelic voice! Jon is the only entertainer that is always capable of keeping Elvis' memory alive in all of us through his amazing voice that has the ability to transfer me in time to Elvis' era. Every song is mastered and performed to perfection just like Elvis would do. I love every song on this CD but my favorites are "you don't have to say you love me", "Fairy tale" and "Steamroller blues". This last song is so perfected to the point that I forgot that I was listening to Jon and not Elvis.. This is how blessed and gifted this man is. Thank you Jon for keeping Elvis alive through your great performances, your God given talent and adorable voice.

An absolutely Wonderful and Priceless CD !
I absolutely agree with Dixie , everyone must have this CD …like I said for Gospel #1 I didn’t think it was possible to improve on perfection but Jon did …The Golden Oldies # 1 CD was already absolutely wonderful and a true joy for the heart and soul to listen to , but all the new arrangements on the new tracks are totally awesome and will delight your heart and fill it with even more love , pride and joy , all the new takes are so very beautiful and listening to Jon’s flawless , amazing and powerful voice it will only confirm to you once again what an incredible performer /singer he is . I loved his first recording of Earth Angel , but this new version is totally special ….Track #7 is absolutely fabulous … and track# 4 # 10 and #11 are among my favorites too .Are You Sincere is a true gem, so heart –melting and sang straight from the heart , this song surely contributes on making this CD absolutely priceless, regardless how many times you will listen to it , you will want to hear it again and again …but as always happens with Jon’s CDs , it is totally impossible to chose a favorite song cause he sings magnificently every single one . The sound on this CD is crystal clear and surely comparable to a recording made on a real professional recording studio, totally fantastic ! You will be overwhelmed with so many wonderful emotions ….The whole CD is Truly Superb !

The Most BEAUTIFUL Voice In The World!
How do you improve on what was already Incredible? There was absolutely nothing wrong with the first Golden #1 CD, but these new takes are even more beautiful!! I don't know how it is possible, but Mr. Jon's voice gets better and better all the time. He is the only one who can out perform himself, but somehow he manages to do it. :) With his deep, rich, soothing and powerful voice, the studio quality sound of the recordings only help to bring out every detail of Mr. Jon's beautiful singing. Are You Sincere is so heart melting beautiful,a real treat to have it included on this CD, and Steamroller just about blew my mind. :) You Don't Have To Say You Love Me has never been sung more perfect. Anyway You Want Me will put you in a trance. Just AMAZING!! This whole CD is Guaranteed to blow your mind!! :) LOVE IT!!! ♥ Thank you again, Mr. Jon, for EVERYTHING!

Aweome Album!
Golden Oldies Part 1 is a really cool album. I've been listening to this album all the time. Like all the albums that Mr. Jon makes the song selection is magnificent, and the flow is smooth as silk. Speaking of smooth as silk, does it get any better than "Welcome To My World"? What a fantastic way to start the album out by welcoming us into Mr. Jon's wonderful world of music. "Early Morning Rain" is a cool song that starts to get the foot tapping. Mr. Jon does a really nice version of "Earth Angel". I've never heard that song done the way Mr. Jon does it, and I think it's awesome! "You Don't Have To Say You Love Me" is a classic that Mr. Jon seems to sing effortlessly. "The Most Beautiful Girl In The World" is a song that just blew me away when I was a kid and heard it on the radio. I was always transfixed when I heard it, and when I saw that Mr. Jon sang it, I couldn't wait to hear his version which is better than the original in my opinion. :) "Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song" is another classic that I love, and Mr. Jon has the best version. I could write a whole review just on "Anyway You Want Me" because it's such a special song to me, but I'll write a post on Mr. Jon's channel about that sometime. Basically it was the b-side to the very first Elvis Presley record that I ever got which was a gift from my mom's old 45 collection. When I saw that Mr. Jon recorded it I couldn't wait to hear his amazing version. It's beautiful! Thank you for recording it!! "Mr. Songman" is so cool and absolutely fitting for Mr. Jon. He is Mr. Songman! "Are You Sincere" is a song I discovered through Mr. Presley, and I love Mr. Jon's wonderful version of an amazingly beautiful song. I've never heard "Love Me, Love The Life I Lead" until I got this album, and it's a cool version from Mr. Jon. What can you say about "Steamroller Blues"? It's a cool cool song that Mr. Songman makes even cooler. The album wraps up with the great "Fairytale". I can never sit down when I'm listening to Mr. Jon sing this. I always have to get up and start dancing to it. Mr. Jon's music is amazing, and it's a true gift to the listener. Thank you Mr. Jon for creating such wonderful memories that will last a lifetime and beyond. God Bless you.

Fairytale!!!!
I bought this CD just to hear "Fairytale," and found so many other songs that I love! Early Morning Rain transports you to another place and time. Welcome To My World makes you feel like you're stepping into another world! Anyway You Want Me is one of the best of the early songs! Just can't say enough about this wonderful CD. Thank you, Mr. Jon for giving us this treasure chest full of gold.

A Whole Lot of Mellow with a Little Bit of Steam
I’m lost in a dream whenever I listen to ANY of Mr. Jon’s CD's! The smooth-honeyed tones of his voice and the mellow tunes (with just a touch of steam) in this CD are hypnotic and relaxing, like a fine wine! Nobody does it better than Mr. Songman himself! Grab this CD for a great non-alcoholic way to unwind after a long day. Another one of my favorites!
