"If you know the great Lola, as I do, mainly through greatest hits collections, this new 2 CD set will be a revelation for you. It is comprised entirely of material I hadn't heard before. It's definitely Lola at her height. The soaring, full-bodied voice and heart-tearing passion is everywhere in evidence here. There's no discographical info with this set, no dates, but it sounds like the 50s and early 60s. Most rereleases of her work come without dates, making finding the earlier material very difficult. These disks met my highest expectations in that regard. If you are after more early, prime Lola, I unconditionally recommend this set. Lola once told a reporter "The composer writes the words and music. I simply put in the passion and feeling." --Talk about understatement. There'll never be another Lola."
