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.

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.

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!

If you like the older songs this was a great CD it really brought back some good memories of when I was growing up and the songs my mom use to listen to.
