"This marvelous British soprano has one of the loveliest voiceson record today. You will thrill to her readings of these timelessoperetta standards presented with lush orchestration and remarkable fidelity. She has picked two favored composers in Kalman and Lehar to do her cavorting with and the result is music of the highest order. Those of us who are familiar with her art will find this a welcome addition and somewhat of a showpiece to her growing list of treasurable recordings. You will find a variety of favorite operetta classics in this collection. The only number that seems out of place is Kalman's Die Herzogin von Chicago number. Another reviewer, however, found it to be one of the highlights. It does show Miss Smith's versatility. Previous to this, she has given us TREASURES OF THE OPERETTA Vol. 1, 2 and 3 with Peter Morrison which are treasures indeed along with cast recordings of THE COUNT OF LUXEMBURG, THE STUDENT PRINCE, THE MERRY WIDOW, CANDIDE, etc. It is little wonder that she is regarded by many to be among the reigning royalty of the current world of operetta. I find myself asking, can it get any better?"
