Five Stars is NOT ENOUGH!!!!!

"This album features 12 great rare cuts from Georgia Gibbs' days at the Majestic label in the immediate postwar years. Her version of Irving Berlin's You Keep Coming Back Like A Song is hauntingly beautiful and gets my vote for the definitive version (beating out such greats as Jo Stafford and Bing Crosby).
The Things We Did Last Summer is a flat-out masterpiece. The song's narrative reflects on a series of immediately recognizable scenes from a summer love affair that somehow faded with the leaves in Autumn. Georgia's delivery is so impeccably real, so subtley infused with passion, that one cannot help believing every word.
Her Ol' Man Mose, otoh, is a spooky delight that, again, gets my vote for the definitive version. And her torcher, Fool That I Am, ably demonstrates that her signature sound was fully developed at this early stage of her career.
Dorothy Shay still has the definitive version of Feudin' And Fightin', but Georgia gives her a run for her money. She also give us excellent versions of Frankie Laine's Put Yourself in My Place Baby, Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams, How Are Things in Glocca Morra, and other standards.
This spectacular album appears to be out of print, so fans should grab up the new & used offerings while they last."
