Timeless Irving Berlin Done by Two of the Greatest Singers!

(5 out of 5 stars)
"To quote Gary Giddens in the linear notes:"They don't make records like this anymore, but thank heavens they did once upon a time". You may have heard these chestnuts done by dozens of singers/bands etc. over the years. That should not stop you from checking out these versions beautifully done by two classic and class acts, SARAH VAUGHAN and BILLY ECKSTEIN. Billy may not be too well known these days, but should be, and his unique baritone sounds almost operatic, and Sarah keeps things flowing too, on these (mostly) duets. Every track is golden, but the best may be EASTER PARADE, and THE GIRL THAT I MARRY, songs everyone over about 45 heard somewhere along the road as a kid, and may have forgotten. These must be the best versions ever. To think these gems were recorded in 1957!!! BTW, these are not jazzy arrangements,but the very best of lushly orchestrated numbers."

"It's sad that we now live in a world where 8 out of 10 people have never heard of Mr. "B" or Irving Berlin, but there was a time when Billy Eckstine was class and sophistication personified!!
This is one of my favorite albums and I think once you hear it you'll feel the same, I truly believe it's time get back to real romance and this CD will make the journey alot smoother."
