Editorial Reviews

Like her mom, Liza started early-she was 18 when her 1964 Capitol debut, Liza! Liza! , came out. This is a magnetic actress and singer standing at the brink of fame: Maybe This Time; A Quiet Thing; Say Liza; All I Need; Meantime; Blue Moon; Lorelei , and more from her debut and the Capitol LPs that followed, It Amazes Me and There Is a Time , plus singles. You get 55 breakthrough tracks, all with stunning 24-bit remastered sound!

If you want to know what all the fuss about Liza Minnelli is about, this is a good place to start.
Paul A. Tassone
Liza!, It Amazes Me and There Is A Time are on CD together as albums without being cut up or the tracks being shuffled around.
Matthew G. Sherwin
Now I wonder when Capitol will release the on-the-shelf restored, re-mastered "Judy and Liza at the Palladium" two-cd set.

After I heard this two CD set, I said to myself, "Oh come on, who could ask for anything more from Liza's years at Capitol Records? What a punch this packs!"

Indeed, this two CD set, so ably produced by Scott Schechter, noted Liza Minnelli and Judy Garland historian, is a treasure for Liza's fans. It marks the first time that Liza's record albums Liza! Liza!, It Amazes Me and There Is A Time are on CD together as albums without being cut up or the tracks being shuffled around. This two CD set also is far superior to the single CD The Capitol Years by Liza simply because it's actually COMPREHENSIVE!!!

These songs are wonderfully performed by one of the greatest talents ever known, Liza Minnelli. Her voice is rich, vibrant and exhilarating at every turn. The quality of the sound is excellent and the songs offer up beautiful musical arrangements.

I love the sensitivity with which Liza delivers "Try to Remember;" and her performance of "Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out" is very well done. There is the lesser known, older song "M'Lord" that she sings really well; and the CD ends with the classic and humorous "Say Liza (Liza With a 'Z')."

The liner notes boast an essay by Scott Schechter and the package design is tastefully done.

Liza fans will find this collection irresistible and an absolute must-have for their collections.

I also highly recommend this two CD set for fans of quality pop vocals. It's an excellent retrospective of Liza's work in the studio during the years she worked at Capitol Records. Viva Liza!

The prospect of having all of Liza Minnelli's studio recordings for the Capitol label is irresistible. Ms Minnelli recorded for the label for 4 years starting in 1963, resulting in three stunning albums, various singles and a number of unreleased tracks. All these have been collected for this 2 CD set.

Let's begin with what's good about this set...and there is an abundance of wonderful features to it. The best, of course, is hearing the legendary Liza May at the very outset of her career and experiencing firsthand the promise she exhibited as a teenager. From the 17 year old at the outset of her tenure with the label, Liza's growth as a singer is charted through these 55 tracks that deliver some very accomplished singing from one so young. Even at this very tender age, there was a maturity and earthy elegance about Liza's singing and choice of material that belies her youth. Her exuberance is infectious and the effortless way in which she uses her voice, especially in the upper range on softly floated notes is astounding. It's easy to see why four decades later she is the revered entertainer that she is.

It's also wonderful to have the three albums (Liza! Liza!/It Amazes Me!/There Is A Time) in their entirety at last on CD with the tracks sequenced as they were on the original vinyl lps. Add to this the many fine tracks that were conceived and released as singles and here is a set that demands repeated listening. The singles, which have been out of print since originally released, include some real gems. For example, there are four songs from the score of Liza's Broadway debut "Flora The Red Menace" which were arranged in a very contemporary 1960's style allowing them to exist outside the context of the show.

Kudos to Scott Schechter for all the blood, sweat, tears and years of devotion to this latest Liza treasure..."The Complete Capitol Collection." Brilliant!

There are so many gems here, but having listened to the previously released albums over and over, I was particularly intrigued by the never-released material, and especially "At My Age," which showcases Liza's vocal control and vibrant vibrato. How on earth did this beautiful song not make the cut originally?

The liner notes must be the longest I've ever read...beautifully written with stunning Liza images. Who could ask for more?

Now I wonder when Capitol will release the on-the-shelf restored, re-mastered "Judy and Liza at the Palladium" two-cd set. Come on, Capitol, release it already. You missed the 40th Anniversary (November, 2004) boat...please don't make us wait any longer.

Thanks so much, Scott. What's next...the A&M catalog (w/all the goodies that were never released), the complete Winter Garden Columbia release, with all the songs in proper sequence.

More, please!

Here's to your continued good health and success and congrats on your recent Germany and Greece concerts, Liza May!

If you love Liza, you'll cherish this amazing DRG release featuring a young legend in waiting.

Enjoy!

A big fat "HALLELUJAH" to the folks at DRG for releasing all three of Liza's Capitol albums from the 1960s exactly as they were originally packaged, along with the singles.

The first two albums paired the amazing Liza with the arranging genius of the brilliant but sorely missed Peter Matz, while the third "There is a Time" (heard by these ears for the first time) featured gorgeous settings by Ray Ellis. Messrs. Matz and Ellis are two of my favorite arrangers for singers, period.

A huge bonus was the singles - need I say more?

The only low spot for me was NOT including the fabulous double pow-wow concert album with Mama Judy at the London Palladium - that would have made this package really complete. But Miss Liza is the star here - and Capitol knew that at the time of her signing that a future superstar was in the making.
