Editorial Reviews

In celebration of the 40th Anniversary of their initial issue, Collectors Choice is pleased to present, for the first time ever, the CD debut of Liza Minnelli s entire catalog for A&M Records restored and remastered for this new collection, in 24-bit digital splendor, directly from the original master tapes! Originally released from 1968 through 1972, these four albums represent a unique period in Liza s legacy, a time when she was already past the stage of being an unknown or new artist, but not quite the superstar she would become just as her association with A&M would end, and the avalanche of awards began in earnest (including an Oscar for her starring role in the movie Cabaret, and an Emmy for her TV special Liza With a Z ). In fact, you might think of this historic 2-CD set as Liza BEFORE The Z , or PRE- Z! This exclusive Collector's Choice 2-CD set features an informative essay from Liza's official webmaster, author-historian Scott Schechter, inside a full-color booklet with rare photos, and includes the studio albums Liza Minnelli (1968), Come Saturday Morning (1969) and New Feelin (1970), along with her first in-person solo recording Live at the Olympia in Paris (1972) discs that have never appeared on CD in the U.S. (and only the first and last LPs were on briefly-issued overseas compact discs, that fetch many hundreds of dollars online when they appear). Hear Liza tackle songs with an unexpected contemporary pop-country-folk-Muscle Shoals beat, including numbers by Randy Newman (Debutante s Ball), John Denver (Leavin on a Jet Plane) and her husband Peter Allen (Simon) along with, yes, the expected tunes from the Great American Songbook, Hollywood and Broadway...including selections by her team of Kander and Ebb, and thus her hits Liza With a Z and, of course, Cabaret. And, listen up, collectors this 51-track set also includes unreleased outtakes of I m Looking over a Four-Leaf Clover; Alicinha; I ll Never Fall in Love Again; This Girl s in Love with You; For Once in My Life; Old Friend (a.k.a Hey Friend) and For Once in My Lifetime, and an unreleased alternate take of (On) A Slow Boat to China! This set is a musthave for all fans of music from the late 1960s into the early 1970s and, of course, Liza Lovers will think they ve died and gone to, well, Liza Land. Come to the Cabaret and celebrate this still acclaimed living legend at the early period of her acclaimed career!

Liza fans will cherish this two CD set; and I think people just getting into Liza will become instant "forever fans" once they hear these songs.
Matthew G. Sherwin
Well, this was worth every penny and each song is just as fresh and polished for the time, some with exceptional production.

Liza Minnelli is the singing wonder of her generation and this tremendous collection is proof...stunning collection should have made the Legendary Diva a Superstar long before Cabaret but radio for some strange reason refused to play these awesome recordings that would easily have sold in the millions plus won a number of well-deserved Grammy Awards...doesn't say much for the music industry in general or the lame radio-programmers of America who were all going psychedelic at the time of Liza's stunning A&M debut. Self-titled "Liza Minnelli" is the extraordinary A&M Records recording debut with incredible performances like "Married/You'd Better Sit Down Kids", "Waiting For My Friend", "The Look Of Love", "My Mammy", "For No One", plus a number of Peter Allen & Randy Newman gems making this landmark album magnificent from start to finish! "Come Saturday Morning" is another awesome collection of great songs filled with more fine singing from Liza like smoldering & mesmerizing performances such as "On A Slow Boat To China", "Don't Let Me Lose This Dream", a haunting "McArthur Park/Didn't We" featuring Peter Allen on piano while "New Feelin'" is a charged rocking and soulful set containing a passionate & stirring "Maybe This Time" plus a sublime gospelized "God Bless The Child". Now by the early 70's only "Singer/Songwriter's" were given airplay but in early 70's "New Feelin'" Liza really lets it rip on old standards such as "Love For Sale" & "I Wonder Where My Easy Riders Gone" while "Can't Help Loving That Man" & "The Man I Love" are soul-deep & satisfying. An exciting early live album recorded at the legendary Olympia Theater in Paris is included along with superb unreleased gems with a jazzy tropicial feel featuring glorious & mesmerizing vocals from Liza.Read more ›

When I first saw this two CD set advertised in Collectors' Choice mail order magazine I literally yelped before calling to order a copy. First of all, I would finally own the rare "Liza Minellei: Live at the Olympia in Paris", a 1972 album of which I had only heard portions. That album is a wonderful glimpse of the singer on the verge of superstardom; not quite capturing the all out frenetic style that she would soon become famous for. Secondly, I would be able to listen to a non-scratched version of her 1969 album, "Come Saturday Morning" which includes not only that sweet (but all too short) song from "The Sterile Cuckoo" but also truly beautiful takes on "Raggedy Ann& Raggedy Andy", "Leavin' On A Jet Plane", and a breath-taking version of "On A Slow Boat to China" that will knock your socks off. I forgot just what a good voice Minnelli had as her obvious stage performance skills sometimes obliviated her natural vocal gifts. In third place on this compilation is Minnelli's first A&M entry, a 1968 album with such diverse titles as "My Mammy", "The Happy Time", "The Look of Love", and "For No One". There's also her first recording of a later mainstay of her repertoire, "Married" coupled with "You Better Sit Down Kids". There are also outtakes from this album including "Once in a Lifetime", "I'm Looking Over a Four Leaf Clover" and "Snow". The only weak part of this CD set is the album, "New Feelin'" where the arrangements just don't let Minnelli do justice to otherwise great songs such as "Stormy Weather", "Come Rain or Come Shine", and "Easy Rider's Gone". However, there are other treats including "Frank Mills" from the Broadway musical, "Hair" and "Tell Me That You Love Me, Junie Moon" a song penned by Minnelli's then husband, Peter Allen.Read more ›

I know, Whats a metal head doing listening to Liza, But sometimes I like mellow music too. Put this music in when you have a nice candle lit dinner with the wife and you will see her voice is magic.

This 2 CD Set is one of the most well done CD anthologies that I've ever bought. It's a true labor of love that the producer of this set put into making Liza Minnelli's highly valued recordings at A&M Records into a totally complete double CD. Everything about this set will have a fan extremely satisfied. All four of Liza's A&M albums are here in beautifully restored sound in their entirety. Not just that, but there are many unreleased or rare bonus tracks. And to enhance this tremendous package is the expertly written liner notes , which are very informative. Plus, the visuals of color photos and more.

Liza's late 60's/early 70's recordings are a delight to hear. You can hear transformation from her earlier Capitol album recordings , where she did primarily standards into doing more contemporary , hip songs by the principal songwriters of the time. Liza was young herself, and I find it more satisfying hearing her sing songs from her generation, and not just the old songs that she did for Capitol. There are so many great songs on this 2 CD set that are worthy of being elevated in status in the Minnelli canon of songs. The 3 studio albums are all good: LIZA MINNELLI, COME SATURDAY MORNING and NEW FEELIN' , which I think is really good because it adds contemporay pop style arrangements to standards that makes them more hip. It's not the disaster some say it it, unless they just love the old stuff. But Liza has always been diversified, and every song on here offers the listener something to like. The live album is also very good, as you can hear the live Minnelli personality breaking out in a 1969 Paris concert. What's to complain about on this set? Nothing at all. It's perfect. Just what the fans wanted.
