Format: Audio CD
Kate Smith was a true landmark in American music. No one sang like she did. She recorded for decades - without her voice failing (like so many other singers). And yet, she has been so grossly misrepresented on CD's. Her greatest body of work (in my opinion) is the work she did for RCA (several albums in the 1960's), when her voice was rich beyond belief - and orchestrations lush, contemporary, well recorded. BUT... where are these albums on CD? A few have surfaced, but only a few - and what HAS surfaced has NOT been re-mastered. In fact, much of what has resurfaced on CD is WORSE sounding than the original albums. The lady deserves much better than this. She gave us a lifetime of all-out singing. It's a shame.

This new CD is both a "must-have" and a "disappointment."

A "must-have" because there is simply not much out there for Kate - and this 3 CD set has many songs that have not appeared on other CD compilations.

A "disappointment" for many reasons... No liner notes. No photos. The track listing on Amazon (and practically EVERY website & music store!) is TOTALLY incorrect. The ONLY song in the Amazon.com listing that Kate sings on this set is "God Bless America". She sings NONE of the other songs.

The CD is also disappointing because NONE of the songs were re-mastered. The audio level varies from song to song. Some songs sound pretty good, with her voice WAY up front... while the next song will be so low, you can't understand what she's singing/saying. Many of the songs sounded better/clearer on the albums. By the way, most of these songs were 78 rpms. Only a few appeared on albums - nothing more recent than 1954 (Kate's Capitol Records album).

Instrumentals were good and clear However on the first track which was the only one with Ms. Smith singing (God Bless America) her voice was much deeper than it should have been. It sounded like the recording was not in speed or was dragging. I'm very disappointed with this purchase. Hopefully this was only my C.D..

I have a one CD album called KATE SHITH & FRIENDS - GOD BLESS AMERICA. The only song sung by Kate is God Bless America. Her friends are a choir [unnamed, but good] that sing America the Beautiful. All other songs are instrumentals by an unnamed, and not very good, band. To call this a Kate Smith album is fraudulent.

Very disappointed with this product. There were only two songs by Miss Smith and the rest was "marching" band music. "God Bless America" did not sound like anybody I had ever heard before. Digitally Remastered - bah!!!

Although her portrait is on the cover and its called Kate Smith and Friends God Bless America, she only sings one song, all the rest are instrumentals or chorales. False advertising and a complete disappointment.

75 performances from America's World War II "Songbird of the South" on this 3-CD set; the sound is excellent! I've got several collections of Miss Smith and this is by far the absolute best in terms of rare gems: Time on My Hands; Dancing with Tears in My Eyes; I'm Stepping Out; When You Wish Upon a Star; and countless others. Enjoy!
