5.0 out of 5 stars Jo Stafford always gets 5 stars in my book January 29, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is not one of the greatest compilations of Jo Stafford's recordings. But, because it bears her name, it deserves 5 stars. She is one of the greatest singers of our time, and anything she has recorded is worth buying! What this disk does have going for it is, to my knowledge, the only cd availabiity of her 1960's version of "Make Love to Me", as well as her recording, with Gordon MacRea, of "'A' You're Adorable". To me, just to have "Make Love to Me" on cd is worth the price of this disk alone. I play it all the time!
I do feel the title of this disk is misleading, though. Maybe it should be, "Some of", or, "A Few Of", Jo Stafford's Hits. What happened to all her work with the Pied Pipers (such as "I'll Never Smile Again"), not to mention her solo hits, "Little Man With The Candy Cigar", "For You", "The Things We Did Last Summer", "I Should Care", and "Hawaiian War Chant" (yet to be released on cd!), just to name a few? Still, I would recommend this disk to any newcomer to Jo Stafford's art. She is the best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Singer, Poor CD Production December 2, 2000
By JK
Format:Audio CD
What a shame that Jo and her voice of 'liquid velvet' get such poor production on this Curb CD! However, even Curb can't ruin the radiance of her voice, the power of her delivery, and the subtlety of her interpretations. Truly, as with all of her other recordings, it's easy to see why she was tops in the American pop genre for nearly ten years. I purchase CD's like this because I want all of her recordings. I look forward to a CD with production quality to match her voice. Worth buying, with reservations.

5.0 out of 5 stars She Still Has It. December 27, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Jo is the greatest and this recording does her justice.
"You Belong To Me" alone is worth the price of the CD.
Buy this one!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Well done and smooth November 26, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This recording of Jo Stafford is a fine example of her versatility and you get Johnny Mercer and Gordon MacRae thrown in. Thanks to being digitally remastered you get an excellent sound quality recording. If you like Jo Stafford or this era in music, you will not be dissapointed.

I'll never know how Curb Records could release a "greatest hits" compilation with a puny ten numbers especially when the singer is the incredible Jo Stafford. The running time of the CD is a let down and although the material is excellent there should have been more on this CD. However, the sound quality is pretty good and the artwork is halfway decent.

The track set starts off with Jo's sublime rendition of "You Belong to Me;" "You Belong to Me" is most romantic when Jo sings this to perfection--and beyond! I love to hear her deliver this faultlessly and the music fits in perfectly with Jo's vocals. Wisely, however, the musicians remain in the background; they never even try to steal the show from Jo Stafford--excellent! "Make Love To Me" is a very pretty tune that's also rather energetic and dynamic. That big band style musical arrangement works wonders for "Make Love To Me;" and that's grand. I love it. How's about that brass? "Shrimp Boats" uses the percussion to great advantage and I'm truly impressed. Jo sings "Shrimp Boats" very well and she never lets go of a superfluous note.

"Jambalaya (On the Bayou)" is a major highlight of this album; I really like this tune. Jo sings this lively number with lots of positive energy and the percussion is again used very well in the arrangement. "Jambalaya (On the Bayou)" just plain sounds good and I know you'll like this tune if you haven't heard it before. In addition, there's yet another gem when Gordon McRae joins Jo Stafford to make ""A" You're Adorable (The Alphabet Song)" truly memorable; they sound great together and you can also hear the operatic qualities of Gordon's fantastic voice. What a lively number! It's a stand-out of this album.

"Jo Stafford emerged from the big band heyday of the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, where she shared the vocal chores with a young Frank Sinatra and The Pied Pipers, to become one of the foremost best-selling artists of all-time." ~ Don Ovens ~

Jo Stafford was one of the best things that ever happened in the history of American Pop Music because of her vocal art. Devoid of any technical enhancements, she possessed one of the most innately beautiful voices the music world has ever heard. She was one of the many favorite singers of my late parents. Her records were dominating our turntable and stereo system when I was growing up. As I get older, I have come to deeply appreciate the kind of music they so enjoyed. As a result, I have an on-going project in replicating their vinyl records into CD/MP3 formats. It's always nice to revisit the artistry of Jo Stafford and what better way to enjoy her music than this remarkable compilation of her greatest hits. The beauty of this collection, notwithstanding its short playing time, is that all the selections are her original recordings from Capitol Records in 1940s through 1950s.

The material represents some of the best recorded songs of all-time. Each track is a surprising delight and easy-on-the-ears but my topmost favorite is her unforgettable greatest hit of all, the beauteous "You Belong To Me." She delivers the sweetest track with a duet partner Gordon McRae, "A-You're Adorable " (The Alphabet Song) where they both seem to enjoy singing this engaging song. It's such a marvel listening to her as she interprets with zest Hank William's "Jambalaya.
