For those of us who want to experience some of the very best songs the great Dinah Washington ever sang, this is a great CD to start with.

Her songs live on as many of the great artists of the 40's, 50's, and 60's.

For those of us who want to experience some of the very best songs the great Dinah Washington ever sang, this is a great CD to start with. This CD is budget priced (a nice plus when everything is expensive these days) and comes with very good photos of Dinah. Yes, I do have to agree with the reviewer who writes that this is not a comprehensive package of her work--but then again, all the songs are on one CD so the manufacturers weren't trying to be thorough.

A nice treat is the two songs here Dinah sang with Brook Benton: very well put together and they sound wonderful together despite the rumors that Dinah couldn't stand Brook Benton! Dinah really works when singing "This Bitter Earth;" notice the slight pause just after she sings the word "This." It's the little things and nuances in Washington's work that make her songs so special. I personally love the song "September In The Rain;" it's thoughtful and very beautiful.

I recommend this CD for people who want a brief and inexpensive Dinah Washington CD that still has some very good quality. Enjoy! GRIN

Format: Audio CD
Kind of a no-nonsense, bare-bones hits package, including her biggest hit, "What A Diff'rence A Day Makes," along with similarly swank, pop-oriented material such as "Unforgettable," "Baby, You've Got What It Takes" and "Baby, Get Lost." Sure, there's plenty more Dinah Washington worth checking out, but for a quick, inexpensive look at her best known stuff, this overview of her later years is pretty darn efficient.

Arrived promptly and in perfect condition. Given as a Christmas gift, it was well received and has been played endlessly. A must have for any blues or jazz fan.

Dinah Washington is a classic. I love her music. I also like Brook Benton who performs many songs with her. It's so easy to get what I want from AMAZON, I'm very pleased.

I just ordered this CD and it came promptly in the mail and that's the best I can say about it. I would love it if I could hear Dinah Washington. I can hear some songs but the ones, What a Difference a Day Makes and Unforgettable, are unhearable, if that's a word, which I know it's not. Who ever mixed this put backup singers in front and Dinah Washington must be out in the alley. Sometimes there is just silence or a barely audible voice singing, which could be anyone. I am so disappointed.
