By A. POLLOCK TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
There never was a singing duo act quite like that of Steve and Eydie who shared their personal and professional lives for over fifty years and on stage, in cabaret, or on US late-night and variety television shows, their playful husband-and-wife banter was always humorous as they scored points over one another. I’m sure they would not have wanted their careers to have been any other way but listening to their prolific solo albums, it’s clear both were undervalued as singers in their own right.

Vocally Steve was up there with Jack Jones, Vic Damone, Tony Bennett and even his friend Sinatra, but was invariably overlooked when such talent was discussed. Listening to this excellent combination of two albums, I was struck how great Steve could swing, turn a Latin lilt or purely emote a tender ballad. Originally released by United Artists Records, LAWRENCE GOES LATIN (1961), with Don Costa as arranger/conductor, allowed Steve to reinvent a dozen popular Broadway showstoppers from near and far with a Latin beat. THE SOUND OF MUSIC, JUST IN TIME, SMALL WORLD, EVERYTHING’S COMIN’ UP ROSES and TONIGHT reflect songs from late Fifties hits; reaching back to the Forties for PEOPLE WILL SAY WE’RE IN LOVE and BEWITCHED, BOTHERED AND BEWILDERED and heading back to the early Fifties for OUT OF THIS WORLD and TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT. By doing so, the choices are a satisfying survey of Broadway’s best-loved numbers ideally suited to Steve’s style, with the Latin arrangements ensuring the singer’s fresh approach in his inimitable way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Lawrence...early 1960s... 7 July 2014
By C. FULLER TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
SEPIA 1262

This new Sepia compilation brings together 2 great and relatively early Steve Lawrence solo albums the first from 1960 is United Artists "Lawrence Goes Latin" with the Don Costa orchestra. The cover on the reverse of the liner is that for the mono release. The copy transferred is stereo.
The second album is United Artists "Steve Lawrence Conquers Broadway" dating from 1962. This is a stereo recording with some great stereo separation.
With Steve Lawrence you are always assured of a exemplary performance and given the best of material to sing he delivers the goods song after song. Don Costa is on the first LP but I cannot find a mention of who is arranger/conductor for the second LP. I suspect it is Don Costa on both.
The transfers are very good but I did detect a higher overall volume for the second LP. Both transfers are from stereo LPs. These are transfers from LPs to CD. There is some minor distortion here and there. I always listen to my CDs through headphones and so tend to pick up the slightest defects.
My favourites from "Goes Latin" are "The Sound of Music"& "Tonight" as the arrangements and vocal fitness perfectly.
For "Conquers" my favourites are undoubtedly "If Ever I Would Leave You" & "Begin the Beguine" because of the perfect matching once again.
Attractive packaging and the inclusion of original sleeve notes and cover images make this a great addition to the other Steve Lawrence LPs on Sepia.
Price wise as always a very reasonable asking price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Four & one-half Stars!! Not Quite Five! 3 Aug 2014
By HP Cohen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Steve Lawrence was one of the very best male vocalists of an era that included Jack Jones, Vic Damone, Sinatra and maybe a handful of others. But in my opinion this release of two LP's on one CD misses just by a little. That little happens on the latin album. The songs are all classics from hit Broadway musicals. But the arrangements are not first rate--they may have been when the album was released in the sixties. But they are corny by today's standards and I think it's the latin beat and the backup singers on two of the cuts.

Those two cuts with backup singers are just ear shattering -- and not in the best way -- and hard to listen to more than once! Don Costa, it states, conducted the album. He also did the arrangements--he was one of the best, but I don't think this is one of his best!

The second album which consists of classic songs like Make Believe, Till There Was You, Isn't It A Pity, It's Love and others is true great Steve Lawrence. The great voice, some really good arrangements (although the liner notes don't state who did the arrangements for the second LP), and some very nice sound -- the CD states the recordings have been restored.

I really enjoy hearing Steve Lawrence, but I would state that the first cuts are not his best, while the last cuts from the second album are among some of his best.

By doing so, the choices are a satisfying survey of Broadway’s best-loved numbers ideally suited to Steve’s style, with the Latin arrangements ensuring the singer’s fresh approach in his inimitable way.

There are eight included tracks from STEVE LAWRENCE CONQUERS BROADWAY (1962) a compilation of songs from his various United Artists albums and to avoid duplication four songs originally extracted from LAWRENCE GOES LATIN have been replaced by six reaching back to Steve’s Coral tenure and BEGIN THE BEGUINE, SO IN LOVE and THE SONG IS YOU are among excellent choices. Inadvertently, the album’s title predicted Steve’s success two years later in his first Broadway musical, WHAT MAKES SAMMY RUN? for which he received a Tony nomination.

Sepia’s excellent remastering applies with presentation including original album covers and liner notes. The CD availability of these Steve Lawrence albums is very welcome.
