Two sides of Ella
Annie Van Auken | Planet Earth | 01/12/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"THE GOLD COLLECTION * ELLA FITZGERALD starts off with seven in-concert LP to CD dubs. Sound quality is excellent, with little extraneous noise or distortion. These FINE TUNE label discs offer no liner notes, so its difficult to date this event-- best guess is mid-1970s. Fitzgerald's voice is still sweet, the program's solid, and the small group in perfect support make these performances a pleasure to listen to.

The second half of the CD consists of much older records-- some of Ella's earliest big band-era 78 sides. Fidelity is a bit limited, but not by any means inferior. The contrast here between the young and older singer is interesting.
