Nancy Wilson on CD

A Listmania! list by K. Parent (Daejeon)
(REAL NAME)   
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."
Nancy Wilson & Cannonball
1.  Nancy Wilson & Cannonball by Nancy Wilson (Jazz)
The list author says:
  "If you're approaching Nancy from a jazz standpoint, this is the album to start with. But if you're reading this list, you probably already have it."

The Swingin's Mutual
2.  The Swingin's Mutual by Nancy Wilson (Jazz)
The list author says:
  "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."

Yesterday's Love Songs, Today's Blues
3.  Yesterday's Love Songs, Today's Blues by Nancy Wilson (Jazz)
The list author says:
  "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."

Broadway My Way
4.  Broadway My Way by Nancy Wilson (Jazz)
The list author says:
  "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...."

Hollywood My Way / Broadway My Way
6.  Hollywood My Way / Broadway My Way by Nancy Wilson (Jazz)
The list author says:
  "A repackaging of the above two, minus the bonus tracks. I don't have this one so I can't compare the sound quality."

From Broadway With Love / Tender Loving Care
7.  From Broadway With Love / Tender Loving Care by Nancy Wilson (Jazz)
The list author says:
  "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."

But Beautiful
8.  But Beautiful by Nancy Wilson (Jazz)
The list author says:
  "Recorded in three consecutive days, which was as common then as it is unheard of now. Made with just four jazz musicians and no overdubs, this is essential jazz Nancy."

Like in Love / Something Wonderful
9.  Like in Love / Something Wonderful by Nancy Wilson (Jazz)
The list author says:
  "Nancy's first two albums, and the only way to get the first on CD. These are pop albums made when pop was not so distant from jazz."

Anthology [2 CD]
11.  Anthology [2 CD] by Nancy Wilson (Jazz)

The Essence of Nancy Wilson: Four Decades of Music
12.  The Essence of Nancy Wilson: Four Decades of Music by Nancy Wilson (Jazz)
The list author says:
  "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."

Live in Europe
13.  Live in Europe by Nancy Wilson (Jazz)
The list author says:
  "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."

Today, Tomorrow, Forever
14.  Today, Tomorrow, Forever by Nancy Wilson (Jazz)
The list author says:
  "A fairly typical pop outing, with renditions of the then-contemporary 'Unchain My Heart,' 'I Can't Stop Loving You,' and a particularly unsympathetic arrangement of 'On Broadway.'"
$11.98   Used & New from: $3.79

Today Tomorrow Forever / Touch of Today
15.  Today Tomorrow Forever / Touch of Today by Nancy Wilson (Jazz)
The list author says:
  "Or you could get that album and 'A Touch of Today' for a few dollars more. For this album, the producer and arrangers were clearly inspired by Motown."

R.S.V.P. (Rare Songs, Very Personal)
16.  R.S.V.P. (Rare Songs, Very Personal) by Nancy Wilson (Jazz)
The list author says:
  "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."

Turned to Blue
17.  Turned to Blue by Nancy Wilson (Jazz)
The list author says:
  "A repeat of the RSVP formula of having a different guest star on each track. Not quite as solid as RSVP, but both are enjoyable."

With My Lover Beside Me  Music By Barry Manilow  Lyrics By Johnny Mercer
18.  With My Lover Beside Me Music By Barry Manilow Lyrics By Johnny Mercer by Nancy Wilson (Jazz)

Forbidden Lover

21.  Guess Who I Saw Today: Nancy Wilson Sings Songs Of Lost Love by Nancy Wilson (Jazz)
The list author says:
  "I don't have this CD, but I have most of the songs on other albums. These tracks focus on her ability to dramatise the ballad, something she does like no one else."

Best Of: Jazz & Blues Sessions
22.  Best Of: Jazz & Blues Sessions by Nancy Wilson (Jazz)
The list author says:
  "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."

The list author says:
  "Again, I don't have this because I have most of the songs, but this is a stunning line-up of her standards. Even better but OOP is a three-disc set. Type B000002TZA in Amazon's search."

Live From Las Vegas
26.  Live From Las Vegas by Nancy Wilson (Jazz)
The list author says:
  "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."

Lush Life
27.  Lush Life by Nancy Wilson (Jazz)
The list author says:
  "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."

It Don't Mean a Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing
29.  It Don't Mean a Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing by J. Williams
The list author says:
  "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."
