CD Reviews

Great career retrospective
Phil S. | USA | 07/18/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"One of the true Queens of Rock and Roll performing many of her greatest hits in full versions wth a powerful band. Her voice is prominent throughout - perhaps a little more band might have helped, but it's not an issue because she is singing well.
She pays tribute to other legends such as Bessie Smith (St. Lous Blues); Esther Phillips (What A Difference A Day Made); Patti Page (Tennessee Waltz). Her workouts on her own recent Broadway-related material, also beg return spins.
The band is tight and strong; background voices mixed nicely, especially on See See Rider and a lesser-discussed nugget, Play It Fair (she also recut it Brunwick in the late '60s); ad they show no signs of slowing on the rousing finale, Saved."
