An astonishing talent
Colin Burgess | Sydney, AUSTRALIA | 07/07/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This incredibly talented lady can only be a breath away from super-stardom. Her vocal range and her choice of songs is sublime, and these tracks will just knock you out with their charm, power, excitement and achingly beautiful arrangements. I have just seen Caroline in Sydney in her new show, "Piaf." It is an absolute tour de force, and she is truly one of today's great musical stars. This album is an absolute must for anyone who wants to listen to one of the first ladies of song. Take a bow, Caroline, this album is a knockout!"
A versatile singer

"I have the two solo records of Carol O'Connor. I prefer her second record, From Stage to Screen. However, I must admit that I am blown away by this singer everytime I listen to this CD. It is definitely a "resume" type of record highlighting her strengths as a character singer. Some notable renditions are "Who Will Love me As I am", "Don't Rain on My Parade", and the two songs from All that Jazz. I am not so fond of the song "The Story Goes On", however, i learned to appreciate it after hearing Carol O'Connor's version. Another good song (on another CD) is Kissing You, a "must-hear". If you are tired of those "lyrical singers", sopranos, and Broadway vocalists (which seem to sound all the same), try the lady from down-under. Note: Time Heals Everything is nice as well, but her version of the song in the Mack and Mabel CD is better."
A true musical performer......

"I first came across Caroline when I saw her perform the role of Velma Kelly in a revival of Chicago The Musical in Melbourne and Sydney. I was so totally blown away by the performance of Caroline that I ended up seeing the show 4 times. Needless to say I was estatic when I found Caroline had released a solo CD. Caroline is not merely performing, but she becomes totally engrossed in the role so the audience sees the true character and not just a performer playing a part. This really comes across on this CD - the characterisations on this compliation of musical numbers really comes across, which is no doubt helped by Caroline's wide vocal range and her ability to change from sweet soft singing to gutsy outpouring of emotion, sometimes even in the same song. This CD is packed with wonderful numbers from a wide range of musicals, my personal favourite being 'Who will love me as I am'. Even if you're just remotely interested in musicals, buy this CD. you won't be disappointed."
