"Dakota Staton's LATE LATE SHOW accompanied me into basic training in the army. Played on a cheap record player in the shower room of our barracks (for the acoustics) for the first time, the demands for repeats from my buddies were incessant. Her stylistic singing of a magnitude equal to Ella, Vaughan, and Peggy is nothing less than sheer consummate listening joy.Dollars to doughnuts, those who buy this CD will become instant fans of her vocal arrangements of everybodys' favorites."

"....of course this is a fantastic LP...but.........the lousy fake stereo drives me crazy.....if you must, buy this until they,someone, issues this in proper mono."
The Duophonic's gotta go.

"Agree completely with John Griffin that the Duophonic master should NOT have been used for a CD release. Duophonic was Capitol's ersatz stereo re-processing so they could sell a simulated stereo version of a MONO recording. These Duophonic (and their ilk) releases showed up in the 1960's as a way for the record companies to charge premium (stereo) prices for old catalog products.
Boo, hiss to the person making that call. Should have been a nice, clean MONO transfer off the original session tapes. Capitol recordings of that era have a very good sound, and the Duophonic process negates the fine work in the recording studio."
