Product Description

Product Description

Tony Award winning actress Chita Rivera is considered one of the foremost performers in Broadway history. This album includes her debut solo LPs 'Chita!' (1962) and 'And Now I Sing!' (1963). In a career spanning over seven decades, Rivera has starred in some of the most groundbreaking musicals of our time, originating roles in West Side Story, Bye Bye Birdie, Chicago, Kiss of The Spiderwoman and many others.

Presented in glorious stereo sound, these digitally remastered recordings make their debut on CD. Both albums present an eclectic mix of showtunes and standards alongside more obscure material handpicked for the sessions. These early 1960s albums clearly demonstrate that Chita Rivera was as versatile a performer in the recording studio as on the Broadway and London stage.

Chita Rivera is that rare thing a supporting star performer. Too often the material she's been given has not been of the top quality (West Side Story and Kiss of the Spider Man aside) so it's a real treat to hear her at her best, bringing her unique vocal quality and insight to a whole range of standards. I particularly loved the fabulously deadpan rendering of "Let's Put Out The Lights and Go To Sleep", butter not melting in that oh-so-sexy mouth.

I have been waithing for years for this cd to be released. i had the lp years ago, and wore it out i loved it that much. to have the wxtea songs on the cd is a wonderful treat. Chita's version of TEN CENTS A DANCE, is the best i have ever heard.
i recommend to all if you like a swinging band this is the cd for you ENJOY

5.0 out of 5 stars Early 60s Chita is great 17 April 2013
By California Greg - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I've always been a fan of Chita's work on Broadway. From her groundbreaking performance as Anita in the original cast of "West Side Story" to her turn opposite Dick Van Dyke in "Bye Bye Birdie," to "Chicago" in the 1970s and everything else beyond. I discovered this CD, though, a two-fer containing the tracks from two solo albums she recorded in 1961 and 1962 and they're great. Chita has a classic Broadway contralto and she knows what to do with a song.

This work has been out of print for a long time, but I'm glad they found it and put it out. It's great fun!

I met Chita once. I told her my parents took me from Cleveland to NYC to see West Side Story. She smiled and said "I was only 12."
