She sings the song with a lot of emotion and passion.

I had only one Vinyl record of her and was able to buy another CD in the Philippines some years ago.

Timi will be forever remembered for Hurt, a record which has often been covered (including by Juice Newton, who had a country number one with it, and Elvis), but never bettered. You will find it on any Timi compilation (except The voice that got away, a companion volume to this CD) but Timi deserves to be remembered for much more, as this collection shows. Even 26 tracks does not cover everything worthwhile, but there's another 26 on The voice that got away, for those who want to explore further.

Perhaps Timi was best at the tearjerkers like Hurt, but it is a measure of her brilliance that she did a wide variety of songs really well. This collection includes a lot of mainstream pop, some more R+B, and even some country songs. It would be a good idea if a record company would issue a separate compilation of her country recordings, just as has been done for Ray Charles and others. As it is, they are sandwiched between all the other stuff, but that's a minor criticism.

This is an outstanding compilation of one of the finest - and most under-rated - singers of the sixties (or any era, come to that).

First time events in our lifetime become special memories and in 1961 while in Junior High School I clearly remember the first time that I heard TIMI YURO'S magnificent "HURT" masterpiece and rushed out to the local record shop to purchase the 45 RPM then rushed home and played it over and over resulting with everyone in my family quickly falling in love with the incomparable and distinctive voice of Timi Yuro. Patsy Cline was a family favorite at that time and with the release of the definitive hit version of "MAKE THE WORLD GO AWAY", Timi was then viewed in the same high esteem and it looked like this dynamos talent would elevate her career to Superstar Legendary status and there would be no limits as Timi Yuro excelled in all areas of the music world as she smoothly went from rock and soul to country and classic with astonishing results. Through the years we would all always reflect back on this great singer as something incredibly special and uniquely amazing and A TOTAL ORIGINAL whose career should have soared to great heights...Elvis Presley was reported to be taken by the powerfully emotive voice of Timi Yuro and did a wonderful cover of "HURT" late in his career but this song remains TIMI'S CLASSIC as none of the cover versions come close to Timi's stunning original...Chaplin's "Smile" is deeply emotional and it is clearly Timi Yuro and Judy Garland who both own this classic and are equally great giving incredibly moving and unforgettable performances! Big band swing has never sounded finer than in the masterful "LET ME CALL YOU SWEETHEART" which would thrill Sinatra as its up to his level of greatness.Read more ›

What a wonderful collection.

Worth every penny, especially to hear the original recording of her doing "Permantley Lonely". This must be the most emotionally charged record ever made, and when I first heard it many years ago on the "Make The World Go Away" Album, it actually made me cry!

This lady should have been a huge star. What a powerful voice with a hint of Edith Piaf, Dinah Washington and Esther Phillips about it, but with so much more.

She has never made a bad record, and leaves behind a legacy of truly mind blowing recordings

What a fabulous singer! Every song in this CD is
excellent. The song "I Know (I Love You)" really
gets to me. It touches me more deeply than any
other song I've ever heard. Timi makes it sound
so beautiful and heavenly. She sings the song
with a lot of emotion and passion. In my opinion,
Timi Yuro deserves to be called "the white queen of
soul". Timi is in a class by herself!

Yuro's stature, both physically and commercially, never matched the power of her outsized voice. At only five feet even and of Italian-American descent, her brash, soulful blues-belting was difficult for the record buying audience (and her labels) to get their heads around. She had a pair of indelible top-5 hits in the early-60s, but her was diluted by a split in her material between deep soul, orchestrated pop, and cabaret. The public just never seemed to get a line on Yuro's character, and her catalog never reached the commercial plateau her talent deserved.

This generous 28-track collection focuses on her early, seminal work for Liberty from 1961 through 1964, with a pair of tracks from her return to the label in 1968. The set opens with her debut cover of Roy Hamilton's "Hurt," which peaked at #4 on the pop chart, and hit #22 R&B. Yuro's opening wail brings to mind Jackie Wilson before she settles back to reveal it's a woman singing; her combination of soulful R&B and pop phrasings bring to mind Dinah Washington. Throughout her initial tenure at Liberty (she'd return at the end of the decade after waxing sides for Mercury), she was matched with orchestral arrangements that varied from supportive to overbearing. Unsurprisingly they're often similar to the backings heard on Washington's Mercury sides, as both artists used arrangements by Belford Hendricks.

RPM's cherry-picked from Yuro's catalog with an ear for her soulful sides, and included many of her artistic highpoints. Her single most effective recording, "What's a Matter Baby," is the perfect combination of dramatic production (courtesy of a one-time artistic liaison with Phil Spector), a lyric filled with scorn and remorse, and Yuro's brilliantly bitter vocal.
