Format: Audio CD
Maggie Whiting was born for a career in music, as her father was a successful songwriter and had many friends in the business. So, all she needed to be a successful singer was a reasonably good voice. In fact, she had a wonderful voice, ideally suited to the romantic songs that provided her with her greatest hits.

With access to the finest songs available at the time Maggie recorded the original versions of several songs that have become popular classics including Moonlight in Vermont, Far away places and Baby, it's cold outside. I've heard several versions of these songs, but Maggie's originals are hard to beat.

My particular favorite song of Maggie's, A tree in the meadow, was actually her biggest hit, but there are not many covers of this song around. Could this be because meadows themselves are a rarity these days?

Maggie was also a major influence on popular music via her duets with country star Jimmy Wakely. Probably conceived as an idea to give Jimmy some pop success, these duets were not only very successful on the pop charts, but also on the country charts. And so it was that country/pop crossover was firmly established.

This compilation includes many of Maggie's hits of the forties (her best years), among them being Moonlight in Vermont, A tree in the meadow, Slipping around (with Jimmy Wakely), Baby it's cold outside (with Johnny Mercer), Guilty, Oh but I do, You do, Pass that peace pipe, Now is the hour, Forever and ever and Far away places. Of these, only Moonlight in Vermont failed to make the American top ten. Its comparative failure as a single (it peaked at fifteen) shows that over-reliance on charts is a mistake.

This is a compilation of some of Margaret Whiting's greatest hits. The sound is beautiful. The voice is magnificent. Fans of America's best popular music should enjoy the album thoroughly.

This CD is a bargan at any price. How did we lose good music?
