5.0 out of 5 stars A good collection of her work January 21, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I must say that this particular collection seems tailor-made for me personally, as it omits one of her hits that I don't particularly like ("Sweet Old-Fashioned Girl"), while including the ones I like best. It is entirely based on her recordings for Coral Records, so instead of having the original 1949 version of her first hit, "Music! Music! Music!" it has a remake which she did on Coral in 1953, which I personally like better. It also includes "A Tear Fell," which I think is the most melodious song Teresa ever recorded, and some other big hits ("Jilted" and "Ricochet" being the biggest).

It also includes some samples of her pop covers of R&B hits like "You Send Me" and "Pledging My Love," which I like better than the Sam Cooke and Johnny Ace originals. (But then, I generally like pop covers of R&B songs better than the originals!)

Probably, if you want only one Teresa Brewer collection, this is the one to get.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad For An Early CD Release September 15, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Among the many Teresa Brewer CDs available, this early MCA release isn't a bad choice. Yes, like most of those CDs back at the dawning of the era, it only contains 10 tracks, but very much UNLIKE most of the others, this has 2 pages of liner notes written by noted jazz critic Leonard Feather (who passed away in 1994).

The AAD sound quality is also very good, and although 9 of the 10 hits included can also be found on the Varese Sarabande release Music! Music! Music! - The Best Of Teresa Brewer (along with 9 more and for not that much more), you do get here the hard-to-find I Gotta Go Get My Baby. Written by Marvin Rainwater, it was a # 19 on the Billboard Honor Roll Of Hits charts in February 1955.

5.0 out of 5 stars fine Teresa Brewer CD--even if a bit too short October 29, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Teresa Brewer sang beautifully and she entertained millions of people throughout her lifetime. Teresa's voice is in excellent form throughout this CD; and just one listen proves it!

The track set begins with one of Teresa's very early hits entitled "Music! Music! Music!" Teresa's voice, clear as a bell, gets the perfect accompaniment from the musicians on keyboards, brass and percussion. I predict that you will enjoy "Music! Music! Music!" very much.

"You Send Me" begins with a great musical flourish; and when Teresa comes in this number takes flight! The backup choir bolsters Teresa's performance; and the brass works wonders for "You Send Me." Great! "Empty Arms" begins with the backup choir singing a few words; and Teresa bats this one straight out of the ballpark for a grand slam home run! Moreover, "I Gotta Go Get My Baby" showcases Teresa's fine ability to handle a country song flawlessly.

"Ricochet" sports a great beat; and the upbeat melody belies the seriousness of the lyrics as Teresa sings of a man who left her because he didn't truly love her. "Ricochet" has great drums, flute and guitar, too! "Pledging My Love" reverts back to a more traditional love ballad; and Teresa sings this without a superfluous note!

"Bo Weevil" features Teresa singing another country flavored ballad; Teresa makes her rendition the definitive rendition of this classic ballad! The backup choir works wonders for "Bo Weevil," too. The CD ends with a number called "A Tear Fell;" Teresa sings this marvelously and the backup choir enhances the natural beauty of this number. I like the strings on "A Tear Fell," too.

The liner notes have an excellent, informative essay by Leonard Feather; and we get the song credits, too. Very good!
