"There is no doubt that the music on this CD is great, however there is no need for compilations, all of June Christy's classic Capital sessions are available on re-issues, the best place to start is The Misty Miss Christy(Capital) and the very best is Something Cool(Capital) however Capital re-issued it all mixed up as a compilation, so I would look hard for Something Cool on LP. Also worth getting "Off Beat", "Fair and Warmer", "The Song Is June" all of these I would reccomend instead of this compilation."
Truely the best of June Christy

"I am an original June Christy fan and this is my favorite collection. The sound is perfect and the song choices are the very best. If you can only have one June Christy CD, this is the one. Also, the CD arrived in great condition and in a timely fashion."
Hearing is believing.

"I disagree with the reviewer who said "there is no need for compilations." If you are curious about why some rate June Christy as "the ultimate voice of swing" then listen to this album. In my extensive collection, I find no better -- in fact no equal performance by any artist of "Baby all the time", "It's a most unusual day", "Midnight Sun", "Fly Me To The Moon", "When Sunny Gets Blue", "How High The Moon", -- the latter being 'the anthem of jazz'. Since it is a collection, the backup musicians vary and you will enjoy them all: Buddy Collete, Russ Freeman, Mel Lewis, Shelly Manne, and Bud Shank to name a few. Oh yes, there are Kenton recordings.
If you never had the chance to hear June Christy live -- this is your second chance.
