"Tammy" is the song that starts of the album with Debbie Reynolds singing very sweetly. The strings are used to great advantage; and overall this is a fine number to begin the album. Debbie's voice is certainly clear as a bell! "A Very Special Love" has Debbie swinging gently as she sings this to perfection and beyond! The musical arrangement is very lush. Nevertheless, make no mistake about it--this is Debbie's number, the music simply enhances it.
"Am I That Easy To Forget" features Debbie squarely front and center--right where she belongs! Her vocals are exquisite and the backup vocalists harmonize softly in the background. "Am I That Easy To Forget" is very much a highlight of this album. There's also "Moonglow;" Debbie does this with panache and her delivery makes "Moonglow" a very solid yet pretty number.
"Time After Time" sounds great when Debbie sings it--this sounds to me like THE definitive rendition of "Time After Time." Wow, Debbie sure could sing! "Mean To Me" again puts Debbie Reynolds right in the spotlight as she sings this poignant ballad. The strings sound great on "Mean To Me," too.
"S'posin" gets a fine treatment by Debbie Reynolds who aces this seemingly without the slightest effort--she was THAT good. The somewhat jazzy, lush music that goes with this song perfectly complements Debbie's vocals. "Hooray For Love" is a classic pop song that Debbie delivers very well.Read more ›
The songs are generally taken from the Great American Songbook, though Debbie occasionally recorded country songs here too, adapting them to her own style. Am I that easy to forget (Skeeter Davis) provided Debbie with an American top twenty pop hit. Among the classic songs included here are Moonglow, Hooray for love and Time after time.
This collection is dominated by love ballads, but not limited to them, as Aba daba honeymoon demonstrates. If you enjoy music by Peggy Lee, Julie London, Jeri Southern and others like them, give Debbie a listen.
Reynolds rose to fame starring in a string of classic M-G-M musicals (in a few of them, namely Three Little Words and Singin' in the Rain, her singing was actually dubbed!), but it wasn't until she starred in the 1957 romantic comedy Tammy and The Bachelor that she scored a hit single ("Tammy"). Another million-seller came with "Am I That Easy to Forget?".
This disc also includes a dreamy "Moonglow", a well-judged "Mean to Me", and a delightful "Hooray for Love". Debbie Reynolds' singing has the ability to melt even the hardest of hearts, and this disc is a fine souvenir of her talents.

Only one decent song! All others are obscure. Unless familiar with more than "Tammy" suggest you invest in more modern and therefore higher cost.Published on May 20, 2013 by susan worrell
