The Most Indeed
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Actually, this album covers music by a whole range of outstanding American writers. It was originally titled "Positively the Most, It's Joanie Drost" and then they decided to rename her. She came along at exactly the wrong time for a great jazz singer; they tried to sell her as "The Sound of the Sixties" but actually she was the sound of intelligence, taste and craftsmanship and there wasn't much of an audience for that. She sold an amazing amount of records nevertheless and her albums STILL sound fresh as paint."

"When will they release the rest of Joanie Sommers albums on cd? Certainly one of my favorite artists from the 60's, this album is a great listen. All of the songs are by the same writers (Oliver, and Paich I think). My personal favorite being her rendition of "That Old Devil Moon". The arrangements on this album are really exceptional and its in stereo as well! Some noticeable hiss on a couple of tracks but that is to be expected on recordings this old. A great find espescially if you collect girl singers of the 60's."

"One of the most unique pop/jazz voices ever as displayed on her first album. Hard to believe she was only 18 years old at the time. The voice of the "For Those who think young" Pepsi commercials of the early '60's, I never tire of listening to her. We should be so lucky as to have other Joanie re-issues."
