5.0 out of 5 stars Great overview of Eartha's early career 4 Jan 2014
By wbr
Format:Audio CD
This double-CD in the "Essential" series is a great overview of the early years of Eartha's career - in my opinion, her best albums come from this era. Very well know songs like Santa Baby and C' Est Si Bon are on here, but also fabulous album tracks like Mambo De Paree and The Heel. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars What is regal and yet unforgettable??? 3 May 2011
By lionknockout61 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've remember when i first saw Eartha Kitt, she was being carried on the stage queen-like in a all black cast of the play,Timbuktu. It was quite powerful. This little woman had such a regal presence and command of everything she approached. You believed her, and just like her character in the play, you believe her in this wonderful collections of songs showcasing her career.
Her kittenish vocal stylings never tires you because it's her. It a recognizable quality that's known throughout the world. From the first note,she takes you on that journey, she sings articulatly in some many different languages,it will astound you. She's serious, funny, sexy, authoriative, and passionate. This collection features some standards,you'll recognize, "Sweet and Gentle," "lazy afternoon," "lullaby of birdland","let's do it","smoke gets in your eyes", "my heart belongs to daddy",and some new standards. Her quirky songs,like "Honolulu rock and roll' and Just a ol' fashioned girl" just shows you her incredible versatility But even with those songs, she commands your attention and gives you all she's got. Also, some interesting surprises is her hilarious version of "i want to be evil' which was last heard on the the soundtrack of movie,"Kinky Boots". There's a song titled, "If I was a boy", that will put Beyonce's version back on the shelf. These 40 wonderful orchestrated gems are definitely a treat, from the first song,"Monotonous" to the breathtaking spiritual hymm, "Steal Away". This song stylist Eartha Kitt takes you on trip that you will never want to end!!! A wonderful tribute and definitely a collectors item.

4.0 out of 5 stars Santa Baby! 30 Jan 2012

An oldie but a goody. There is no better rendition of 'Santa Baby' than Eartha Kitt's, which is the primary reason I bought this. There are several other decent tracks on this album too.
