Performer Notes
  • Liner Note Author: Lucy O'Brien.
  • While there's some good music on this 73-minute CD, it's a patchy quilt of songs from the 1950s to the 1980s, reaching as far back as late-'50s sessions from early in her career, and stretching through several subsequent decades, including two songs from a 1985 album and seven songs from her In Concert album thrown in along the way. That's not, incidentally, her 1964 Philips In Concert album, but an identically titled release that's obviously from much later, since there are references to Michael Jackson and Ronald Reagan inserted into one of the songs. Other than those pair of 1985 tracks, the music is good, and sometimes superb, as on her version of "Mood Indigo." However, there are better anthologies out there. Although there are liner notes by noted author Lucy O'Brien, little is supplied in the way of specific dates and original release information. ~ Richie Unterberger
