CONNIE IS AT HOME SINGING MOVIE THEMES

"This CD was part of Polydor's attempt to release all of Connie Francis' lps to CD. They stopped after the first 20 or so and all of them went immediately out of print. This is Connie's first movie inspired CD and also one of her major chart toppers in the early 60's. She was at the pinnacle of her career when she was asked sing at the Oscars. She chose the underdog "Never On Sunday". The rest is history, as this song has become as closely associated with her as anything written for her. Her version of "Love Is A Many Splendored Thing" is the best cover to date and "Moonglow" with the underscore of "Picnic" in the background is classic. She takes a Smaltzy "High Noon" and turns it into believable drama at it's best. Connie went on to sing several movie themed lps and no singer has really had the right feel for these type of songs quite like Ms. Francis does. Sadly, out of print, hard to get but try to find! It's a beauty."
One of Connie's best

"People who dismiss Connie Francis as a fluffy singer should take a listen to this soundtrack album. It does get samey after a while but it is a remarkable achievement. Connie's voice is at its peak and she truly takes the lyrics to heart. Her cover of "Young at Heart" is a superb example of it. Every time I hear it I just have to clap. Connie shows she has a sense of humor too with the cheesy "High Noon"."
