"If you like Webbers music and a good female vocalist then this albums by the this late actress and caberet performer is a good bet. Laurie chose a wide variaty ranging from the often covered and the more rate songs like Starlight Express and Half a Moment. She has a strong rich voice and does justice to such belting classics as With One Look, Memory, and Love Changes Everything which I think is her most powerful performence on this CD. Unlike Sara Brightman she does not reach those upper octaves so you can hear these songs in a more subdued setting. Some of the arrangments do stray from what I am used to on the cast recordings, but they are good arangements. Who wants a carbon copy of someone elses version. This fifteen track should serve as an introduction to her recording work and A.L. Webbers if you don't know his stuff. Laurie will be missed!"
Outstanding Collection of ALW Hits by the Consumate Diva

"No one sang an Andrew Lloyd Webber song better than Laurie Beechman who was nominated for a Tony Award for her performance in "Joseph" and was "Grizzabella" in "Cats" on Broadway. This collection offers ALW's best showcase with a wide variety of songs. Of course, no one performed "Memory" better than Beechman and her power and range lends itself well to all the tunes on this CD. Among the highlights are "With One Look," "As If We Never Said Goodbye" and "Love Changes Everything." If you like Broadway belters, Beechman is your gal. Her tragic death by ovarian cancer took her from us all too soon."
