Merman Hidden Treasure

(4 out of 5 stars)
"At first glance, this compilation would seem like yet another in the series of Merman collections from her work in the 1930s and 1940s. However, the hidden treasure here is that several of the cuts are taken from her studio album for Reprise, recorded in stereo in 1961. This was perhaps her best studio turn at the microphone, with driving arrangements by Billy May. Ethel is at her best vocally, and is the greatest presentation on CD of what made The Merm such a big star. At the low price, this is a real bargain!"
