Masterpieces Poorly Recorded

"This is some of Gloria Lynne's absolutely best work very poorly recorded on the Collectable label out of Pennsylvania. BEWARE! If it were not for Amazon's policy for not accepting return CD's opened, I would have delivered it to them by hand. This is a tragedy. The company even recorded some of these great songs off a scratchy LP, with no filtering whatsoever. Really low rent approach..."
BEAUTIFUL.......Pay no attention to the Other Review!

"I had no intention of reviewing this particular album/CD by Gloria Lynne. I had included it on one of my 'Listmania' compilations as a classic buy (grab it while you can!) and then read the totally negative review from Robert Hanks.Please...trust me...this Gloria Lynne album by a jazz artist of UNQUESTIONABLE credentials, is a masterpiece. Period. Nothin' more to be said.....but, OK, I'll say more.First of all, COLLECTABLE CD's are a god-send, helping us to preserve the Best of the Best from past musical history. They do excellent work, very professional, totally First Class. If Bobby Hanks ended up with a 'scratchy CD' he must have run his nails over it when he tore it out of the box & into the player!And as for Gloria Lynne's interpretations of some classic ballads, well, just grab a little Tia Maria, curl up in front of a fireplace, and listen to this sultry songstress deliver...Full Force..."I Wish You Love," "The Folks Who Live On The Hill," "I'm Glad There Is You," "I Should Care," "Try A Little Tenderness"....I could name each & every song on the CD, but you get the idea. They are all Perfect. They are all Glamorous, Glorious Gloria at her Grandest....and it doesn't get better than that!"

"The recordings on this CD sound better than they did on the radio where I first heard them. I gave mine to my sister and am purchasing another for myself. The music is still fresh. I absolutely love it!! The ballads are smooth and mellow and make you feel good while you're listening. If anyone is on the fence about buying this CD, don't be.
If you have never heard of Gloria Lynn and you like easy listening music, you will never regret purchasing this CD. If you have any relatives who grew up during the 50s and 60s and you want to give them something special, buy this one. They will love you for it."
