I Fell in Love

"I was a young man of 17 when on a hot August night in 1968 I went to a Marlene Dietrich concert at Merriweather Post Pavillion in Columbia, MD. I had discovered Miss Dietrich on my own the year earlier and while others my age were enthralled with the likes of Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin, I was spinning Dietrich. I had trouble finding someone to go to the concert with me and ended up taking my older sister. I had been listening to the Dietrich in London recording and was hoping to hear much of it live. I was not disappointed. From the furtive peek between the curtains at the audience to her last curtain call Dietrich owned the audience. Many were drawn to the stage from their seats to get a closer glimpse of this legend. Funny in dialogue, intriguing in song, La Dietrich left a lasting impression on a young man in 1968 that continues to this day. Buy the CD, hear the magic, experience a legend. You won't be disappointed."

"Dietrich was a tireless performer who was still touring long after most of her peers were home knitting (if they were still alive). Many believe that her voice improved with age, and this recording of a live performance in London certainly supports that belief. The audience obviously loved her, and you can tell that she gave them a hell of a show. Very good stereo sound."

"This recording should be the quintessential Dietrich concert album, but it seriously needs to be re-mastered. The original Columbia LP (from which the cover art derives) was in stereo, but this DRG release is the same mono version of the album that is available on dozens of other labels at much lower prices. Also, the song "Mona Lisa" was recorded at this evening, but never released. DRG or Sony should press an all out re-issue of this classic concert with photos, added material, and re-mastered sound, something in the vein of the Broadway Masterworks series.
This album captures Dietrich in brilliant voice, and supreme control, the Post-War Dietrich of myth and legend. She sings her standard song-book - minus "The Boys in the Backroom" for some reason - under the musical direction of Burt Bacharach, whose arrangements invigorate the songs (most of which were already decades old, and many in other languages) and support Dietrich's amazing and unique voice quite impressively.
This is a great introduction to the musical work of one of the greatest personalities of the 20th century, and needs to be re-issued for Marlene's legions of fans, old and new."
