CD Reviews

By Far The Best Remastering Sound
Kevin J. Roberts | 12/27/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This recording is a masterpiece. Peggy Lee creates a concept album unlike any other in commercial recordings up to that time, and perhaps for another 30 plus years into the future (this is from 1955). It is really a folk music album, with all songs accompanied by a harp (mostly), or harpsichord. It may be listened to as an entire suite, or selecting individual songs. Many of the individual songs are astounding - fragile, gentle vocals that overwhelm you. If Peggy had pursued more folk recordings, she would have been the preeminent folk singer in the folk boom that came 6-10 years after this recording.

THIS VERSION HAS SOUND THAT COMPLETELY BLOWS AWAY THAT ON THE UK CD ON THE MCA LABEL (the two-on-1 CD). The Japanese mastering is so far superior that it is a crime that the UK CD is even on the market."
Superb sentiment that is gone from us in 2005!

"If you do NOT understand this album, it is probably because you have been squashed by the level of crap that has continued to assault our ears for the last 30 years! If you do, you are one of the lucky ones, my friend. This album IS and always has been a treasure. BUY IT!"
One of our most perfect artists in profound form.

"I will not elaborate on the qualities of this album. I was not familure with this genre before now. I will tell you that I will never forget this performance. Please search and find this album sometime."
