Worth Remembering
05/22/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The '50s brimmed with so many outstanding female vocalists even great talent sometimes could not really make the the top or keep up there consistently. These four singers technically are beyond reproach and each has her own individual style, plus all four benefitted from the best arrangers and musicians on their sessions. This is a thoroughly enjoyable C.D., not just nostalgia but a current enjoyment."
Some of the best from some of the best

"Included in this CD are some of the best vocal recordings from some of the best vocalists of the 1950's. There is a good mix of the big hit records like Little Things Mean a Lot by Kitty Kallen to some of the lesser known but good performances such as With Open Arms by Jane Morgan. This is a good collection of 45's from the 1950's."
This CD has a lot of great songs and performances

"I bought this CD for "With Open Arms" by Jane Morgan, but I discovered many other gems here. I had never heard Sylvia Syms before, and her rendition of "You Fascinate Me So" is full of energy and humor. I also like her version of "It's Good to Be Alive." Of the four singers in this collection, I am not crazy about Toni Arden. Her voice is strong and clear, but I find her interpretations somewhat "big" and impersonal. I like all the Jane Morgan songs on this CD; all the Sylvia Syms songs except "The Night They Invented Champagne," which has a gimmicky arrangement; and all the Kitty Kallen songs except "True Love" (not because of her, but I just don't like the song). For anyone who likes female pop vocalists of the 1950s, this is a great collection that offers a variety of styles."
