Editorial Reviews

2007 double CD set from one of America's most popular entertainers who, long after her mid-'40s commercial peak, was the first major vocalist to break away from the Big Band format and begin a solo career. Her career even included golf, TV and Burt Reynolds! This compilation features the best of the five classy and critically acclaimed albums Dinah recorded for the Capitol Records label 1959-62: Dinah - Yes Indeed!, Dinah Sings - Previn Plays, Somebody Loves Me, Dinah Sings Some Blues With Red and Dinah Down Home. EMI.

Always loved her voice.
TJ Ohio
It can therefore be argued this superb compilation of songs chosen from the same source is superfluous.

Recommended for those of you who are crooner fans.

Dinah Shore's long recording career included a period with Capitol Records when she produced six acclaimed albums, with all having been previously issued in the UK by EMI as "2 on 1" CDs. It can therefore be argued this superb compilation of songs chosen from the same source is superfluous. However, in my opinion these selections will appeal to buyers who prefer variety rather than concept with such a bargain-priced double-CD of forty-eight superb tracks encouraging purchase by casual and also younger buyers eager to enjoy Dinah's vocal magic.

Of the songs, SENTIMENTAL JOURNEY and TAKING A CHANCE ON LOVE are amongst six from YES INDEED! on which Nelson Riddle did the conducting honours in 1959; IT HAD TO BE YOU heads eleven wonderful standards from DINAH SINGS, PREVIN PLAYS(1960); WHEN I GROW TOO OLD TO DREAM and six others emanate from SOMEBODY LOVES ME(1960). I'LL WALK ALONE and seven others are re-recordings of her 40's hits which graced THE FABULOUS HITS OF DINAH SHORE(1962) leaving BYE BYE BLUES and eight other upbeat or bluesy numbers to impress when accompanied by the legendary vibraphonist Red Norvo on DINAH SINGS SOME BLUES WITH RED(1960). Finally, there's a return to Dinah's roots as she goes Dixieland for WAY DOWN YONDER IN NEW ORLEANS and six others from the 1962 album DINAH, DOWN HOME!(1962). Throughout, Dinah's superb vocal style is beyond reproach with songs which are trusted and true standards.

Attractive art-work includes some glamorous head-shots of Dinah; the notes are effusive and help to make this a recommended top-notch release from the improved and irresistible catalogue of UK's EMI Gold label.

Format: Audio CD
Dinah Shore was born on March 1, 1917 in Winchester, Tennessee and first came to national prominence with Xavier Cugat & His Waldorf Astoria Orchestra in 1940/41, being the vocalist on his hits The Breeze And I (# 13 in August 1940) and its flipside, When The Swallows Come Back To Capistrano, Whatever Happened To You (# 22 in October 1940) and its B-side, The Rhumba-Cardi (# 19), and Quierme Mucho (Yours), which had been recorded in June 1939 but not released until late 1941 (# 16) - all for the Victor label.

But she had already branched out on her own in 1940, scoring her first hit with the Bluebird label in September in a duet with Dick Todd, backed by the Leonard Joy orchestra, on You Can't Brush Me Off from the Broadway musical Louisiana Purchase (# 24). That's not here, but both sides of her next hit are, led by a great rendition of Maybe that made it to # 17 in October on Bluebird 10793 b/w The Nearness Of You with the backing of the Paul Wetstein orchestra (later Paul Weston). Late that year the wonderful Yes, My Darling Daughter, again with the Joy orchestra, started its climb to # 10 on Bluebird 10920 early in 1941.

Her next hit included in this volume is Jim, a # 5 in the fall of 1941 on Bluebird 11204, followed by arguably the best version of Blues In The Night, which had 6 different hit versions in 1942, Dinah's reaching # 4 in the spring of 1942 on Bluebird 11436. Another 1942 hit coming in March was I Don't Want To Walk Without You, a # 12 on Bluebird 11423 from the film Sweater Girl. The volume then jumps to early 1943 when the great wartime hit, You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To, from the film Something To Shout About, became her best hit to date, reaching # 3 in February on RCA Victor 1519 b/w Manhattan Serenade, once again with Paul Weston & His Orchestra.

We were pleasantly surprised that this is not the same old American songbook compilation of songs. Dinah's voice is a delight and these are some seldom heard songs by her or anyone else. A lot of music for the money. Recommended for those of you who are crooner fans.
