The list author says: "Collecting Nancy Wilson's music can be a bit tricky. First of all, a good many of the 60+ albums she's recorded over the years have never been released on CD (while some are available in multiple releases). Second, many of the CDs that are available are compilations that rehash the same hits over and over. Third, Nancy has recorded in so many styles over the decades that not many people will be fans of all of them. And fourth, there are THREE different singers named 'Nancy Wilson'! This list will guide the Amazon customer through as much as it can."
"And this is the other essential jazz-based Nancy. (Amazon has several versions of this title. This one has the most tracks: 20 of them.) The problem is that many jazz listeners buy these two and then stop. Big mistake."
"There may be less improvisation on this album, but it has serious appeal to jazz listeners. Many of the songs are standards and she even tackles a Wes Montgomery tune. And the charts were brilliantly done by big band arranger Gerald Wilson. (Would that these two would collaborate once more!) If you like Dinah Washington, this one is for you."
"What the title suggests: show tunes. More pop and less jazz, this CD contains five bonus tracks (also show tunes) culled from other Nancy albums that haven't been released. Hopefully that's not a sign that they won't be...."
"But Nancy didn't exhaust the Broadway catalog with 'Broadway: My Way,' and she's back with 'From Broadway with Love.' Coupled here is another album, 'Tender Loving Care.' Both are good albums firmly in the classic pop genre."
"A four-disc box set and pretty much a companion to the Anthology above, with minimal overlap. It contains some non-Capitol tracks available on some albums recorded and available only in Japan, of which 'Casablanca' and (oddly enough) 'As Time Goes By' are standouts as is the hitherto unreleased Sands concert."
"I'm guessing this is a bootleg as whoever wrote the track listing on the back cover obviously didn't know the songs Nancy sung, and because it's not listed on Nancy's website. It should therefore be avoided."
"This is Nancy of recent vintage, with her youthful energy replaced by knowing experience. It's a duets albums, with a different guest star on each track, but this is possibly one of the best albums this trend has ever produced because there are no really odd pairings (no recordings with dead people or rock stars, etc.), and also because most of the guest stars are instrumentalists."
"Another one I don't actually have. The track list is surprising in not actually presenting her hits, yet being very well chosen. If you have one compilation, you can buy this one with little or no repetition and still get some great songs."
"Unreleased for years, this set finally saw light in the Essence box set and was later given a dedicated release (so don't buy both). Truly excellent, especially as her other live albums are still in digital limbo. 'I Can't Get Started' is stunning."
"Nancy has confessed to this being her favourite album. To me, the strings are way overdone, making it too bland and weakening a decent track list. Surprisingly, the culprits and Billy May and Oliver Nelson."
"Another album that probably won't come up in searches, and another instrumental album with Nancy along for a few songs. She sings only three, but they are good ones indeed: 'I Can't Get Started,' 'Imagination' and the title track. Recreations of old big-band era charts."
"Yippee! Since making this list, one old album has been given a CD release! It's a really good live album, and most of the tunes do not have studio versions. The audience is obviously enjoying the music."
