5.0 out of 5 stars Dinah's fantastic style July 14, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Here you have the chance to have a long-time-out-of-print CD that reissues the first of Dinah's Roulette's album. Her style was changing a little, and she made use of pauses and whispers much more than in the past.
A must have to experience something really wonderful from the swinging Miss D.
You'll also have some rare track from unissued LPs.

I grew up with this album and loved every mintue of it. Her phrasing is unbeatable. Drinking Again... For All We Know.... If I had to choose one Dinah Washington album to listen to -- this would be it.

Format:Audio CD
Dinah Washington invariably commanded the attention of her adoring audiences wherever she performed; and this CD gives us more than ample proof as to why. Dinah's voice remains in strong form throughout this CD even though these songs were recorded not long before her untimely death. The four extra tracks offer us special treats so that we can enjoy Dinah's vocal symphonies even more!

The CD track set starts off with "Drinking Again;" the piano and percussion in the musical arrangement complement Dinah's voice perfectly. Dinah, as always, uses her voice to enunciate with remarkable clarity and she expresses every little nuance in all the lyrics to the song. Dinah sings so touchingly of a love gone awry; and even though some may say her voice sounded "world weary" I maintain she still had "it" as she sings "Drinking Again." The CD then takes a 180 degree turn for the peppy love ballad "Destination Moon" which allows Dinah to sing a song about the joy of love. "Destination Moon" also refers to the space age craze that had gripped America completely by the early 1960s. Great!

Other very special numbers on this CD include the love ballad "A Handful Of Stars" which gives us Dinah reminiscing about a past love. Dinah belts this out without ever losing the slightest bit of sensitivity for a delivery of this song that only a very few singers could ever express. The musical arrangement shines for "A Handful Of Stars," too. "Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby" gets the royal treatment by Dinah as she sings this to perfection. Dinah doesn't miss a beat and you will be charmed by this performance. "Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby" features a fine harmonizing chorus as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uniquely Memorable Beautiful Voice April 24, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Dinah Washington was one of those rare singers whose artistry was enhanced by her uniquely rare, memorable, beautiful voice. She could literally sing anything (even the telephone book) and give her own unique spin. Dinah could sing torch songs, the blues, jazz, R&B in sad, yearning, lonely vocals or high and happy vocals, depending on the song. The raw emotion she sings with can move you to tears of longing, the remembering of "been there, done that," and just as easily have you jumping and laughing for joy. So, kick back and "Take Your Shoes Off." You're heading for "Make Believe Dreams" of a "A Handful of Stars:" "Destination Moon!"

4.0 out of 5 stars Past her Prime but fabulous ! August 8, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
At this point in Miss Washington's career, she seemed bored and her gifts had been diminished by alcohol.But when I was a kid listening to my Father's record collection, I played this album to death! To this day it's one of my all time faves.Drinking Again,Destination Moon,Is you is or is you aint my baby,Where are you, are all stand outs and can be shiver inducing. " Where are you " has actually brought me to tears. The bombastic big band arrangements mixed with a vague knod to rock guitar ( thanks Elvis )show a transition in the pop/jazz industry. One was on the way in and the other was on it's last legs.
Long Live Dinah !
