Features the hits "Hula Hoop Song", "How Do You Know It's Love", "Anymore", "When Do You Love Me", "Pickle Up A Doodle" and "Venetian Sunset" to name a few. This is another fantastic tribute to the great lady and will make a wonderful inclusion for her many fans.

A followup to the 2-CD "A Sweet Old-Fashioned Girl" which covered the first part of her Coral label recordings. This is the late 50s and early 60s until she changed to Philips in 1962. Includes album songs and hit and non-hit singles.
But still an annoying omission of Milord which was a hit in 1961.
"Remastered" is a wrong word - it's digitized. You can't remaster unless you have the original studio tapes and you remix them all over. "From the original masters" is the best way.
Naturally the music is great.

The title says it all. Teresa could sing anything in any style. She was one of a kind and the first pop artist. I mean a real pop star, all the other female singers of her era were also great. But Teresa didn't come from a band, and wasn't a band singer. A true pop singer that could sing, pop, country, Dixieland, American songbook. Well, you get the message. I started listening to her music as a child and still play it today. That's a real STAR.

Thank you Miss Brewer, Edmund Andreas Arredondo

Jasmine's very generous (three complete albums plus bonus singles) compilation covers the entire arc of Miss Brewer's mature career at Coral, with four distinct thematic foci, but it also exposes serious flaws in artist/repertoire coordination (blame the Coral house style of Bob Thiele, Brewer's longtime producer and second spouse) and in La Brewer's take-no-prisoners middlebrow pop technique (and I AM a Brewer Fan, kinda). If the technique is questionable, in all fairness I allow that Teresa's diction, even of nonsense lyrics, is really impeccable and bears positive comparison to Dame Vera Lynn. Neither Dame Vera nor La Brewer was exactly a subtle singer, but listeners certainly hear every parsed syllable of the lyrics.

The jukebox novelties and B-sides which open this collection are uniformly wretched, terrible songs delivered in blowtorch fashion in substandard Coral 1950s mono. One listen is more than adequate, although Miss Brewer does unleash the trademark vibrato and some convincing ladylike growls on several tracks which approach sanitized urban rockabilly. (Bear Family's TEENAGE DANCE PARTY, an integral reissue of 1957's FOR TEENAGERS IN LOVE, with similar bonus tracks, is a more authentic version of these novelties if you really must have them.)

The 1958 DIXIELAND BAND album in genuine early stereo is a very pleasant surprise and rates four generous stars. The sidemen swing exuberantly, and Brewer's unquenchable enthusiasm settles into a very comfortable Deep South/Big Easy groove. She sounds musically at home, far more so than in her late-career attempts to morph into a "real" jazz singer (where Kay Starr and Peggy Lee had already thoroughly written the white woman's jazzbook).

Following my general comments, I've added comments about each CD or CD section and followed by a track by track list of the sources and release dates for each track or album.

Generally, the sound quality is very good; there is no apparent surface noise on any of these tracks. However, as usual, they've fouled up the "remastering" by pushing the higher frequencies within the range of Teresa Brewer's voice. There is a very high frequency harmonic over the vocals, especially on the tracks that came from singles. The defect is still present on the tracks from LPs, but not to the extent that it is on the singles. This defect makes the vocals a bit unpleasant to listen to due to the very sharp high frequency harmonic. When the so-called remastering alters the sound of the vocals, it is wrong. On albums featuring a vocalist, remastering ought to leave the voice alone so we can enjoy hearing the artists voice as preferred by the artist and the production engineers. Given the fouled up "remastering", I can only give this album two stars; When the "remastering" alters the voice of the artist on an album, the result deserves no more than two stars.

An additional note about one of the earlier reviews. I agree that "digitizing" is the process of producing digital track from an analog source and cleaning it of surface noise and background static. If that's all that was done, I'd have no complaints. However, what the industry terms "remastering" is someone taking the digitized track and applying an equalizer to alter the sound to suit their ears, their preferences, their reproduction equipment, their speakers or earphones and their listening environment.
