Format: Audio CD
Umm. There are forty-three songs here. I don't know if you noticed that, but if not, you should be aware. Forty-three. Many of them quite belty and swathed in brass. This Capitol Years collection includes three early albums, a couple of loose singles, a smattering of London Palladium live cuts with Mom, and a few tracks from the New York, New York soundtrack. All nicely remastered.

Logic would dictate this should be enough Liza to take down a draught horse. Certainly enough to put regular sized mammals like you or me out for good.
But it ain't. Nope. I just checked. I still got a pulse. Here's why it's not too much Liza--and why it, in fact, ain't nearly enough Liza:
There are (is? are?) at least three of Liza here. Maybe three and a half.

Will Friedwald pretty well nails it in his excellent liner notes when he describes the first two albums (from 1964 and 1965 and comprising Disc One) as Capitol's effort to "Barbra her up." To be fair, they also Garland her up and, on at least one occasion, Merman her up. Which is a little creepy, but it just goes to show you her sheer range of ability. At 18 or 19 years of age, maybe Liza didn't realize she didn't have to be such a good sport. But she was, gamely cruising through the arrangements--some of them truly goofy, some terrific, mostly just fine. (In a gloriously overwrought arrangement of "Together Wherever We Go," she actually channels Barbra and Judy both. Which almost makes you not notice the--I swear I'm not lying--kettle drums punctuating the melodramatic denouement.)

"Blue Moon" stands out on Disc One as the track you know you're going to make someone listen to over and over again. With its faux-rock arrangement, you immediately think it's the cheesiest thing ever.

I'm the first to admit, I have a love/hate relationship with Liza Minnelli. I loved Liza Minnelli when growing up (she's only 4 years older than me, so when I was in high school, Liza's star was just beginning to really shine) - and hate what her life/her living has done to her voice... This CD collection of her first 3 albums takes me back in time, though, to when her voice was young, vibrant, exciting... when her voice was both rich beyond its years, and a little unsteady with its youth.

It was great fun to hear these recordings again. The girl did some terrific singing (My Shining Hour, Wait 'til You See Him, It Amazes Me - and my 2 favorites, Nobody Knows You When You're Down & Out, and I Never Has Seen Snow). The re-mastered sound is amazing. The Peter Matz arrangements (first 2 albums) and the Ray Ellis arrangements (3rd album) never sounded better. It's also great to have the albums in their entirety - with all the songs placed exactly where they were on the original albums. Liza's talent was so "right there" on these recordings. All the promise of what we hoped for is heard in her voice - sophisticated, kooky, subdued, and over-the-top... It's all here.

The bonus tracks are interesting. The 2 "single" releases are pretty bad (the songs themselves), and the 2nd of the two songs, Liza hits a note at the end of the song that is so off-key, it's jarring... Full out, loud - off-key. You think "Why didn't they re-record that?" And, yet - that was part of the fun of early Liza (if this makes sense)... She was "full out" - taking big chances... succeeding, or just missing the mark... like a child learning to walk... It was all exciting stuff.

If you like Liza at all, GET THIS CD. It puts everything else in perspective.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
...right from the beginning of this incredible entertainer's career...and this CD from Capitol can take everyone else back to those memorable moments, if they "Try to Remember" (one of the highlights from her very first album.) Granted, the producers have thrown in "The Man I Love," "But the World Goes Round," and "New York, New York" from the soundtrack of her LEGENDARY SUPERSTAR years...and a great bonus they certainly are. But only a bonus and, frankly, not a requirement to understand how she reached the Top of the Heap. If the many of you who are not burdened with my Old Age will just listen to all the Minnelli magic that was so evident right from the beginning...displayed beautifully in the three albums from Capitol that launched her recording career...it will be impossible for you not to agree with the appropriate title ('FINEST') given to this compilation. It didn't take her Oscar-winning "Cabaret" to make "Maybe This Time" my favorite Liza song, because she performed it to perfection on the first Capitol album. And then I had my second all-time favorite from her second album, and that was/is "Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out." But there is so much versatlity, zest, and unique style, pure poignancy touched by humor, with "I Knew Him When," "Blue Moon," "My Shining Hour," "I Like the Likes of You," "Plenty of Time," "I Who Have Nothing," "M'Lord," "See the Old Man"...well, actually, on all forty-three remarkable songs she gifted to the world about forty-three years ago...you will finally understand, comprehend, exactly how and why this little girl would soon become one of the greatest entertainers of both the 20th and 21st Centuries.
