Product Description

Together with Peggy Lee, Margaret Whiting was the only female vocalist to have hits in the '40s, '50s and even in the late '60s, when the rock and roll sound sidetracked the career of most of her peers. But unlike Peggy, Margaret's '60s recordings made with producer Arnold Goland and released on the London label have remained unissued in the digital era. This release marks the CD debuts for both Margaret's 1967 album Maggie Isn't Margaret Anymore and her 1968 album Pop Country, both remastered from the original stereo master tapes, to which we've appended four unreleased tracks. More groovy sounds from one of the all-time great songbirds, with notes by Will Friedwald and photos from the Whiting family's private archive!

This has to be one of my favourite releases of Margaret Whiting. I have the original LP albums of both these superb albums and was delighted when they were issued on cd earlier this year. The remastering is superb and Margaret's voice is at her very best. Wonderful versions of My Cup Runneth Over and Only Love Can Break A Heart are included on this great set. Just wonderful.

Format: Audio CD
Margaret Whiting (1924-2011) enjoyed a long career and well-earned reputation as a classy vocalist with her Capitol Records tenure of the '40's and `50's enabling many hits in the USA although her fame fell short of the wider popularity bestowed on Ella, Peggy, Doris etc. However, Margaret's innate ability to handle all song genres included not only the Great American Songbook but newly-minted show and movie songs, country ballads, novelty pop ditties and occasionally even kids nursery rhymes set to music. Having helped to establish the newly-launched Capitol label in 1943, she bloomed until 1957 before seeking pastures new and surviving the rapid and drastic changes to musical styles during that decade and those which followed, she recorded for Dot and Verve/ MGM before surprisingly reinventing herself as a pop princess at London Records where she notched up a dozen US hits including the Chart-topping single THE WHEEL OF HURT in 1966.

Such popularity spawned a same-titled album followed by two others and Real Gone Music has done us all a favour by resurrecting them with the latter two neatly combined to fit this CD - thus filling a gap in the Whiting CD discography. MAGGIE ISN'T MARGARET ANYMORE (1967) is a mix of covers like THERE'S A KIND OF HUSH, THIS IS MY SONG, SOMETHIN' STUPID and revived oldie I REMEMBER YOU (hits for Herman & His Hermits, Petula Clark, Frank/ Nancy Sinatra and Frank Ifield respectively) with show tune MY CUP RUNNETH OVER from Broadway's two-hander I DO!, I DO! a hit for Ed Ames. Less familiar is the Bacharach/David ballad, ONLY LOVE CAN BREAK A BROKEN HEART and the jaunty JUST LIKE A MAN. Needless to say, Margaret's vocal range and power are well on form on ideal material that makes an entertaining collection.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 2 Jun. 2014
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The first album, Maggie Isn't Margaret Anymore, mostly features Maggie's covers of familiar pop songs, although there are surprises, such as her solo cover of Somethin' stupid. Other great songs include Only Love Can Break a Heart, There's a Kind of Hush, I Remember You and This Is My Song.

The second album, Pop-country, begins with a song I've not heard elsewhere, I Hate to See Me Go, which was released as a single but only made the bubbling under chart. The rest of the album is filled with classic songs and every fan of traditional country music will recognize. Maggie does them in her own style which really isn't all that far removed from traditional country, and certainly a lot closer to it than much of the so-called country music recorded later.

These albums from the late sixties are not among Maggie's most famous recordings, but for sheer quality they are among her best, providing you enyoy listening to cover versions.

Another stunning CD from one of the best singers of the 50/60. Every song clear as day,not like today's over produced music.

CLASSY MARGARET'S SIXTIES RESURGENCE! 2 April 2013
By A. POLLOCK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Margaret Whiting (1924-2011) enjoyed a long career and well-earned reputation as a classy vocalist with her Capitol Records tenure of the '40's and `50's enabling many hits in the USA although her fame fell short of the wider popularity bestowed on Ella, Peggy, Doris etc. However, Margaret's innate ability to handle all song genres included not only the Great American Songbook but newly-minted show and movie songs, country ballads, novelty pop ditties and occasionally even kids nursery rhymes set to music. Having helped to establish the newly-launched Capitol label in 1943, she bloomed until 1957 before seeking pastures new and surviving the rapid and drastic changes to musical styles during that decade and those which followed, she recorded for Dot and Verve/ MGM before surprisingly reinventing herself as a pop princess at London Records where she notched up a dozen US hits including the Chart-topping single THE WHEEL OF HURT in 1966.

Such popularity spawned a same-titled album followed by two others and Real Gone Music has done us all a favour by resurrecting them with the latter two neatly combined to fit this CD - thus filling a gap in the Whiting CD discography. MAGGIE ISN'T MARGARET ANYMORE (1967) is a mix of covers like THERE'S A KIND OF HUSH, THIS IS MY SONG, SOMETHIN' STUPID and revived oldie I REMEMBER YOU (hits for Herman & His Hermits, Petula Clark, Frank/ Nancy Sinatra and Frank Ifield respectively) with show tune MY CUP RUNNETH OVER from Broadway's two-hander I DO!, I DO! a hit for Ed Ames. Less familiar is the Bacharach/David ballad, ONLY LOVE CAN BREAK A BROKEN HEART and the jaunty JUST LIKE A MAN. Needless to say, Margaret's vocal range and power are well on form on ideal material that makes an entertaining collection.

The second album POP COUNTRY (1968) returns the singer to the country and western genre with which she was quite familiar, having had a string of hits with country singer Jimmy Wakely during the Forties and had since revisited on occasions. RELEASE ME, I CAN'T STOP LOVING YOU, YOU DON'T KNOW ME and GENTLE ON MY MIND are familiar favourites, whilst I CAN'T HELP IT (IF I'M STILL IN LOVE WITH YOU) is a known Hank Williams heart-breaker and I LOVE YOU SO MUCH IT HURTS an old Wakely hit. Orchestrations blend country and pop with occasional chorus with sufficient space allowing Margaret's emotional vocal shading to shine through. Four previously unreleased songs intended for singles are welcome bonus tracks and enhanced by an unexpected jingle for a beer commercial!

Real Gone Music's remastering is faultless and Will Friedwald's accompanying notes are an object lesson on how such reissue material should be treated with rare photographs adding their significance to this welcome project.

At Last Margaret Whiting's London Label Recordings on CD 6 April 2013
By David Cummings - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This music, for the first time on compact disc, is a must for all Margaret Whiting fans. Margaret's fans have waited a long time for these songs to be re-issued on compact disc. The long wait is over.
Ms. Whiting was never in better voice than she was with these London label recordings. The sound quality of these CD's will attest to that.
Don't put it off, get both discs now, "Maggie Isn't Margaret Anymore" and "The Wheel of Hurt." The song selections are terrific and again show Margaret at her best. Will Friedwald's liner notes are a wonderful addition to these classic albums. Also included in the liner notes are some wonderful pictures of some of Margaret's family moments with daughter Debbi along with some of the people that Margaret worked with.

Margaret Whiting at her absolute best 5 April 2013
By STM4 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I am only 16 years old but I must say this double album is absolutely fantastic! I was very pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this album. I had heard other songs by Margaret Whiting, I especially like her renditions of her father Richard A. Whiting's work such as "Guilty" and "My Ideal." This album however really showcases Margaret's ability to move out of her comfort zone and sing 1960's pop and country cross over songs. I really enjoyed the tracks "Somethin' Stupid," "Because," and "There's A Kind Of Hush." These tracks are not only wonderful to listen to but also to really hear Margaret's impressive vocal power and style. As I said I am only 16 and found this CD thoroughly enjoyable. It takes Margaret out of the jazz standard world and immerses her into an entirely alien environment and yet she is able to sing these songs with just as much passion and grace as any other standard that she adored the world with. This is a CD to have if you enjoy anything including Margaret, The Great American Songbook, and pop songs of the 1960's. Truly a 5 star album.

Time to Celebrate Maggie Whiting Again! 4 April 2013
By Jerry Osterberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
What makes for a good singer of standards? How does a song become a standard? The answer to both questions is one and the same - Margaret Whiting. Born to a famous father - composer Richard Whiting, and a mother - Eleanor Young, who wanted to perform but instead deferred to her sister - Margaret Young, who had both the desire and the presence to succeed; and raised in a Hollywood household where many of the biggest stars of the screen and popular music came to call; Margaret Whiting was bound to follow her famed elders into the family business.

Margaret was only thirteen when her father died of a heart attack, and had been singing for half her life for not only Richard Whiting, but her uncles Johnny (Mercer), Leo (Robin), Harry (Warren), Jerry (Kern) and other songwriters, usually to try out the tunes they had just written. After Johnny Mercer took her under his wing and taught her how to put over a song, it was generally understood that Margaret would sing professionally. When Mercer formed Capitol Records in 1942, she was one of the first singers he hired. Margaret scored big with her very irst recording, and at the age of seventeen she was well on her way.

Over the next decade she placed forty songs among the top forty, twelve of which reached into the top ten. By 1956, her successful run had ended, and by the time the music began to change in the second half of the 1950's, her recording career seemed over before she turned thirty-five. She continued to perform - television, summer stock, clubs, eventually moving to New York City to try her hand at cabaret. At around that time, she was approached by a record producer - Arnold Goland, who convinced Margaret to go back into a recording studio.

It was understood that there was no longer a market for the kind of songs she had performed earlier in her career. The songs that she turned into hits had long since become standards, but the younger generation wanted nothing to do with them. It was in 1966 when she strolled into a studio to record what would become her second number one hit - "The Wheel of Hurt," which appeared on the London Records label. Ironically, Margaret's first number one song had also been country - "Slippin' Around," made in 1949 with Jimmy Wakely.

Margaret went on to record two additional albums, including Maggie Isn't Margaret Anymore and Pop Country, which have been combined in this new release. Now, more than forty years after first coming to market, more than two dozen tracks, including several bonus tracks, have been re-mastered, completely re-packaged and re-issued with new liner notes by music critic Will Friedwald. To say that this CD is "Deluxe" is an understatement. Everything about it is top drawer - the design and art work, the notes and the great care taken to produce superb sound such that it might have been recorded only yesterday with the best equiptment now available.

So, do yourself a favor and listen to a fine singer at the very top of her game. With twenty-five years experience behind her, Margaret interpreted these comtemporary songs and imbued them with much feeling and substance. She treated them with the same respect as she had the popular tunes of an earlier generation. This is a welcome addition to a catalog which, while the quality is high, is much too small for Margaret Whiting's many fans.
