Old Memories Revisited

"I had my first taste of the delightful stylings of Marie McDonald when I was a young man, fresh out of high school and just finishing basic training in the Navy. I was home on leave and after listening to rock and roll all day on the radio, I wanted something different. My mom loved the old standards from the 40's through the 60's and as I browsed through them, I came across this incredible album cover with this curvacious blond in gold lamee'. I recognized many of the tracks as songs my mom would sing around the house. I decided to take a listen and I was knocked over by the beauty and emotion that was put into every song on this album. Later, I found out it was one of my mom's favorites and it soon became one of mine too. Whenever I would come home on leave, I'd always find time to give it a listen. The richness of Marie's voice and her way of evolking an emotional quality to each song made them special and much more than just a singer going through the motions. A few years later my mom passed away from cancer and without thinking, many of her precious possessions were given away to charity after she died. Among those were her favorite albums, including this one by Marie McDonald.
Over the years, I've often thought about that album and tried to find it in old record stores or online but with no luck. I happened to give it another go at recently and to my surprise, found it available as a Japanese import. You can't begin to know how excited I was to finally have it in my possession again.Even though this album has a strong emotional meaning for me, I can say honestly that Marie's rendesions of the songs included in the album are as good if not better than other better known performers. She may have been a flash in the pan in hollywood and maybe only known for having "the body" but the girl could sing. You won't be disappointed if you like classic standards and a voice that matches the rest of her!"

"I was somewhat put off by the title of this album and was reluctant to purchase it. However, after reading Mr. Reed's EXCELLENT review, and listening to the tracts again, I knew I had to have it!
Ms.McDonald sings with emotion, and her tone is clear and pure! She means every word. In my opinion this album is perfect! It is so sad that there aren't more just like it. This is what Ms McDonald should have been doing all along. She was made to sing!
