"JUNE CHRISTY WAS THE BEST SINGER OF THIS CENTURY UNFORTUNATLY, THIS CD IS A TECHNICAL DISASTER"

"When Hindsight Records released this CD in 1995, it was the first time these 16 June Christy radio transcriptions were available for fans to buy. Six tracks from 1946 with Stan Kenton's "Kentones" lead off, followed by by some 1957 tunes with the Les Brown and Jerry Gray orchestras. The final five numbers are from a session June did with Shelly Manne and His Men in 1965. Christy's improvement in tone and confidence are obvious between the 1946 and 1957 sets, and it's obvious during the last 10 songs on this CD why she was a dominant vocalist in jazz circles untilher retirement. Christy hits "I'm Thrilled" and "Something Cool" are here, along with some songs not regarded as her tunes like "Get Me to the Church on Time" and "An Occasional Man." The variety -- and the evolution of the singer -- are interesting."
