CD Reviews

First of two sensational Dinah hits collections
Peter Durward Harris | Leicester England | 10/02/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Dinah may now be remembered more as a TV star, but she was one of the most successful female pop singers of the 1940's. This collection and it's companion volume, 16 greatest hits Encore!, contain all the essential hits that Dinah recorded for Columbia from 1946 to 1950. Some lesser hits have been omitted to allow the inclusion of some high quality recordings (like Willow weep for me) that were not hits - perhaps they were B-sides.Dinah's biggest hit, the lightweight but brilliant Buttons and bows (#1 for ten weeks), opens this collection, which includes the major hits Shoo fly pie and apple pan dowdy (#6), The gypsy (#1), Doin' what comes naturally (#3), Dear hearts and gentle people (#2) and Baby it's cold outside (with Buddy Clark) (#4). Some of these songs faced stiff competition from other versions of the same song and it wasn't always Dinah's version that charted highest, but Dinah's versions are all of a high quality.The 1940's were a particularly strong decade for female singers, but Dinah was certainly among the best of them. This CD and it's companion provide a wonderful introduction to her music."
Dinah Shore's biggest hits, and some standards too...
Mr. Ragtime Jazz | 10/30/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Although I generally listen to jazz singers like Ella Fitzgerald, Lee Wiley, Sarah Vaughan, et. al. I think Dianh Shore was under-rated in the jazz world she cut two exellent session for Capital in the late 50's one with Andre Previn's Trio and the other with Red Norvo's big band. This CD features Dinah Shore in the 1940's backed by string orchestras, and mostly singing her hits, which most ended up being jazz standards ten years later like "Willow Weap For Me" "It's DeLovely" and "Georgia On My Mind." Dinah Shore is a capable singer when it come s to a good song or a jazz standard, and when put in a jazz setting she can dish out some good jazz singing. Buy this CD to sample her earlier work, who knows she might even surprise you and sing something really good."
Just What I was Looking For
Judith G. Nickel | Clayton, CA USA | 01/02/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I know I'm not the only person who's recently heard the lovely voice of Dinah Shore singing 'Shoo Fly Pie and Apple Pan Dowdy' on a TV commercial. It reminded me how much I loved Dinah so I ordered this album. It's exactly what I hoped it would be...Dinah at her best, singing songs I remember and love. And to top it off, the liner notes are excellent."
