"By the way,what happened to all the reviews that were here a few weeks ago? Why were they deleted? I was really looking forward to this CD because the few tracks of Gracie I heard on the radio were delightful. This CD has been put through a weird "stereo" process that makes it sound like she is in one studio and the orchestra is in another distant one. Her voice is given tremendous echoey promanence and the orchestra can hardly be heard. To me the sound is unpleasant and nothing like the original recordings. I have another "Parkerized" CD of Helen Kane (the model for Betty Boop) that was equally disappointing in exactly the same way.
I have just ordered what I hope is a non-parkerized CD of Gracie Fields (Sing As We Go,Vol 1). I wish Amazon would alert us to which CD's of pre-stereo music have been put through this weird attempt to "modernize" the sound."
