An Evening To Remember
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Lata joked at this concert - "I hope you enjoyed these songs. I have sung them in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar!". Known for her ready wit, she is also known to surprise her critics and detractors by churning chart-topper after chart-topper every year. She has not kept up with her prodigious pace of late; she records few songs nowadays, but those that she does, manage to top the charts. Call it a divine gift or a product of relentless dedication and discipline, her ethereal voice has no parallel - even today. And, if proof of this were needed, this collection has a 22 minute medley of 19 songs spanning 50 years which encapsulate her superb artistry. I remember someone who attended one of her concerts outside India telling me: "Even after the last song, the audience did not stir for a full five minutes; they thought and wished that she'd go on and on....". This is how I felt after listening to that medley."
