Not the greatest-hits compilation listeners may think it is, Billy's Best! is in fact a full LP, one of Eckstine's first for Mercury, and the best of his career. Wrapped in strings and the brassy notes of a few jazzmen by arrangers Henry Mancini and Pete Rugolo, Eckstine slides through a dozen ballads and romantic songs, "Stella by Starlight," "You Don't Know What Love Is," and "The Boulevard of Broken Dreams." Though his certainly isn't the zippiest version of "Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart" ever committed to record, Eckstine's wonderful baritone commands this set entirely.
