5.0 out of 5 stars Experience the Incomparable Talent of Sarah Vaughn September 12, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Long before Bette Midler hit the scene, Sarah Vaughn was known as "The Divine One," and for good reason. Her voice is like clarity of mind; it's the soft, gentle breeze of summer upon which all of the sweet scents of the earth are carried; it's the sound that put the stars in the sky. And I envy anyone who has not yet experienced her music, because that moment of discovery is still ahead of them-- a moment after which all of the sounds of the world will somehow be forever changed, and in a good way, because the sound of Sarah is to the ear what sugar is to the tongue. So wait no longer. Delve into "Sarah Vaughn's Golden Hits," which will provide a transporting experience for established fans and "newbies" alike.
This album contains arguably the best versions ever recorded of some of the classic songs of all time, beginning with "Misty," which opens the album. But more delicacies await, all of which make this collection a veritable feast for the senses (yes, all of them, not just the ear; this is music you can taste, smell and feel). "Autumn In New York" and "Moonlight In Vermont" will take you to another place and time, and you can call it what you will because it will be a place of your own choosing, and timeless; that is the effect of Sarah Vaughn's incredible voice. And that's just an example of the magic of this album.
Call this a "sampling of Sarah," and know that while these songs are some of her best, the exciting thing is knowing that there are plenty more where this came from, more songs issued from that same unique well of excellence, waiting to take you on even more delightfully ethereal journeys born of one of the purest sounds ever recorded.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greater than Great November 27, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Compiling this album initially was an afterthought at Mercury. The C.D. version completes what the album started by adding signficant tracks the L.P. should have included. The new liner notes by Will Friedwald are insightful and intriguing. As for the music, it is divine start to finish. And how wonderful to have Sassy's magnificent and legendary duet with Billy Eckstine, "Passing Strangers," on C.D. You will be amazed at the sheer breadth of the material here--this woman could sing, and did sing, ANYTHING brilliantly. There's so much here, and maybe some gems you've never heard, such as "C'est La Vie."

5.0 out of 5 stars In A Class All By Herself! July 27, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Absolutely NOBODY had as much control, mastery and complete understanding of the first instrument like Sarah Vaughn. The passing of this monumentally gifted artist 10 years ago was truly the end of an era, and left a void that can never be filled. This is SINGING. On such standards as "Autumn in New York", "Misty" and "Whatever Lola Wants" her range of expression and emotion with a lyric is simply staggering. My mother Sharron owns this classic on vinyl and regularly blesses me with repeated plays of her favorite "Broken Hearted Melody" and then just lets me drift away into musical euphoria with the rest of the selections. There is not a wasted moment on this LP and it is especially rewarding to lovers of big band, swing and traditonal jazz as the numerous bands that accompany her provide brilliant backing on every number. No music collection is complete without someting by the divine Ms. Vaughn, and for my money, this is the best place to start! TIMELESS!

5.0 out of 5 stars The most beautiful voice this side of heaven! May 5, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Miss Vaughan, I believe , possessed one of the greatest vocal instruments of all time. She had a range and sweetness of tone that should have been the envy of ANY singer. This collection is an excellent offering of just a little of the magic this great lady was capable of. Miss Vaughan could not only sing a very tender ballad ("Autumn in New York")with the best of them, but could also sing jazz like no one else ever could ("The Bannana Song"). One of the most beautiful songs recorded by anyone is Miss Vaughan's "Eternally". Just listen to her as she molds each phrase, each word and makes it her own. This is what REAL singing is all about! The word "Diva" is used so much these days to describe such undeserving talents such as Diana Ross or Madonna. Well folks, this is a REAL Diva. How can one listen to Madame Sarah sing "Misty" or "Tenderly" and not be swept away to another dimension or not feel the fun in such songs as "Smooth Operator" of "Lullaby of Birdland" (another all time classic)? Miss Vaughan was definitely one of the greatest singers (not just female singers) of all time. A truly monumental talent who left us all too soon. Listening to this CD makes one happy just to be alive. Buy it!

3.0 out of 5 stars I really want to give it five stars but.... November 17, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is a very good overview of some career highlights for Young Sassy, but don't expect any information whatsoever about the players on a single song; or comments about chart position; nor do you get a single bit of information about the year, the producer or session that a particular song was recorded. What you get are excellent songs that are very eclectic and liner notes that tell us how great Sarah was.
Well, just who would buy this c.d. that did not already know that much?
If you want more information regarding the music try another collection.
