Five Stars for Starr!
J Keistler | Lake Jackson, Texas USA | 12/03/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Kay Starr's voice is unique, you can pick it out of a thousand singers. Her voice is so clear, so strong, it must have sounded fabulous over those old car radios of the 40's and 50's! I particularly enjoyed her duet with Ernie Ford, and her recording of 'Side by Side'. However, there's not a clunker in the bunch on here. As with the other Capitol Collectors Series, I found the restoration of these old recordings to be superb, a task performed with meticulous care. An excellent start for a collector of pre-rock pop music."
Kay Starr's commercial recordings for Capital...

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Since Kay Starr's roots were in jazz, her commercial recordings as middle of the road as they are, are still very enjoyable. If you listen to Patti Page's greatest hits they sound dated and she sounds awful, yet you listen to Starr's hits and they are still classy and are of interest to jazz collectors, Starr had(and still does to this day) a bluesy Jimmy Rushing/Connee Boswell influenced voice(Starr replaced Boswell in Bob Crosby's orchestra in the 40's, hence the influencial New Olreans drawl). Starr was unique and jazzy even in the most middle of the road tunes like "Bonaparte's Retreat." But before buying this CD try these three essential recordings by Kay Starr "I Cry By Night" with Ben Webster, "Movin'" and "I Hear The Word"(the only one not yet on CD)"
Absolutely brilliant!

"I found this combination of vaudeville-pop-high camp and jazz music abslutely irresistable! Miss Starr voice has just enough country timbre to makes all this pop songs interesting and she could also sing very good blues (look for her "Cry by night" album!).After hearing this album I started fanaticly searching for anything by Kay Starr and she is now one of my all time favourite singers!"
