Just Like being in the Audience,With a Very Alive Starr!

"I have listened to the CD,literally dozens of times.Having seen kay in person,it brought back all the magic that I remember. Though past her heyday in pop music.Kay's talents with lyrics and emotion are just fabulous.This CD shows her prowess at performing and keeping an audience in the palm of her hand.This 1986 recording is full of jazzy,pop,and bluesy ballads that an older raspier yet richer voiced Kay Starr belts out! The samples dont do justice to whats on the full album! Thanks kay !"

"This is the only live recording of late-era Kay Starr, and though she seems to be singing on one, worn-out vocal chord, this girl still could sing her behind off. There's a sublime, torchy medley of "For The Good Times" and "Help Me Make It Through The Night", that is so emotion-drenched that if your spine doesn't tingle, you'd better get to the doctor, 'cause you must be dead. When she hollers out "...make believe you love me ... ONE MORE TIME! ", she doesn't have to ask, because there is no way you can't love this woman! And she even rocks out with a swinging "Big Bad Leroy Brown" that no other singer would dare to pull off. Kay deserves her place right next to Dinah Washington AND Edith Piaf, and this recording proves it in spades!"
Five Stars for the great Kay Starr!

""Live at Freddie's"(1985)provides listeners with an opportunity to hear the jazz side of Kay Starr in an intimate live performance at Freddie's in New York City with her jazz trio. As a serious collector and a personal friend of Katie I am thrilled to finally hear her show-stopping rendition of "Help Me Make It Through The Night" and "For The Good Times", two songs whose lyrics are combined and sung as one song. It was a surprise to Frank Ortega, Kay's arranger-conductor that Kay could sing these two great country songs together. As she told me in 2008, "This unique arrangement was a masterpiece". You will only hear it on this C.D.
