Playing in a TV commercial near you right now is probably a Dinah Washington song. It was the use of "Mad About The Boy" in one such ad that prompted this collection. Still, let's not get too sniffy about that because if it means that more people get to hear her than that's all the better. For since her heyday of the late 1950s/early 60s Dinah has been neglected for far too long. Her's is a voice of Viagra mixed with gravel, which spans jazz, R&B and pop. This collection from Phonogram has 17 sparkling numbers from the swing of "All Of Me" to the sensuousness of "Let's Do It" and the sheer class of the title track. In each her phrasing is excellent with every consonant and vowel perfectly delivered. Dying tragically early at 39 Dinah Washington may not be as well know as Ella Fitzgerald or Billie Holiday but at her best and with the right tune Dinah could mix with the best. Get mad about Dinah. --Phil Bret

What a fantastic album. Even with all the other Dinah tracks I have this compilation of her work is outstanding, all the classic tracks and her 'bounciest' performances.
Whether a die hard fan or just looking for a good introduction to either Dinah or the genre this is a winner, guaranteed to have you singing out loud-even the kids know the words in our house!

Aware that Dinah Washington had been recording for many years my choice of compilation was determined by a love of September in the Rain and a desire to acquire other tracks of that vintage, 1961. It's all about the voice and arrangements from this period. I think that this is it although would need to look further than the inlay which is sadly lacking in detail.

However, Mad about the Boy, What a Difference a Day Made and A Rocking Good Way, which must all be from around the same time, along with September in the Rain, are worth the price of purchase alone.

Format: Audio CD
This great little compilation is missing some great songs. Sadly this cd lacks All Of Me by Dinah Washington - the Queen of Jazz.
Cry Me a River is spectacular. 'This bitter Earth', and 'Every time we say goodbye' are classic Dinah Washington.

'Is you is or is You aint my Baby' is missing from this CD. I heard it years ago on vinyl.
Vacuum tubes and vinyl.

Great, a classic. I enjoyed every minute. Easy, relaxing listening, just curl up on the sofa with good book, or off course a good friend.
