CD Reviews

Terry D. Robertson | Asheville, NC USA | 07/16/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you are looking for the standard hits packages some have come to know and love (or get really tired of), this CD is not for you. It actually contains on a couple of her charted hits--the majority are Lp cuts of songs with a love theme spanning 1959 to 1968. Her version of "La Vie en Rose" in French and English is a delight. Several cuts from one of her best composer-themed Lps, "Sings Burt Bacharach" still stands the test of time. This CD has been in print all over the world for many years (except here), and is one of Connie's seminal reissues. The quality of selection explains it's broad appeal and shows Connie's growth from a "Teen Idol" to a powerhouse intepretor of American standards. A great collection for all music lovers. The fans will certainly want this one for it's diversity alone. Highly recommended."

"If you take randomly 14 songs from Connie's repertoire you may be sure that the most of them are love songs. Thus entitling the scant set of her cuts "Love songs" do not speak well for somebody's imagination. However, this Australian edition is currently the only source of Connie's interpretation of famous Bacharach's hits: "Make it easy on yourself" and medley "This girl is in love with you / I say a little prayer". If you add "What the world needs now" (also by Bacharach, but now available from Japan among "The Best of", Polydor; see my review) and "La vie en rose" (currently also on "Lipstick and powder", 3CD, Trilogie; see my review on UK Amazon site) it may make this set worth purchasing, especially that it became dirt-cheap. Good quality of recordings, but ugly cover and only 39 minutes of pleasure for ears.
Three stars for it, does not mean I don't like it, but just one for each of Bacharach's rare cuts.
