The four central songs -Hey John, The Ballad of the Shape of Things, Someone's been sending me flowers and Bruce are at the heart of this compilaton. They are all beautifully light and amusing. Wonderful cabaret music. At times she has a marvellous Marilyn-Monroe-little-girl quality to her voice. Her enunciation is immaculate and the accompaniments are invariably sympathetic. I recommend this CD unreservedly - a great discovery.

Charming, witty, obvious love of the English language and its nuances. A gem of a recording. I shall look for more of her back catalogue.

Get this CD! 28 Aug 2000
By Hoc Stercus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD is an anthology of fifteen songs taken from Blossom's own label, Daffodil Records. It is an assemblage of some of her best work. My personal favorite is "Bring All Your Love Along," which she recorded with Bob Dorough. At the present time this song can be found on no other Blossom Dearie CD. Although some of the material can now be found on other BD discs, there is a sufficient number of songs found nowhere else to make this pressing an important part of your collection. To be honest, on any of Blossom's recordings there are some songs I like better than others. This one contains the cream of the crop from start to finish.

Blossom is a hoot! 14 Sep 2005
By The Man in the Hathaway Shirt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The word "iconoclast" was invented for Blossom Dearie, a performer who doesn't quite fit into any category. Not only is she a gas, she chooses some smart and funny songwriters. This CD, from her own Daffodil label, is a combination of live and studio material, the live being better and funnier in my opinion. (Much of the studio stuff is an attempt at campy fun that doesn't always quite come off.) Some highlights include "I'm Hip," "Bruce," "The Ballad of the Shape of Things To Come," "My Attorney Bernie," "I'm Shadowing You," "Answering Machine," and her anthem song, "Peel Me A Grape." Blossom has an affinity for the smart and sophisticated (yet very silly) songs of Sheldon Harnick and Dave Frishberg, and they make the most amusing material in the collection. Why these two aren't better-known is a mystery to me.

Most of these were recorded with an aging Blossom at the piano, playing to a very small and intimate audience. She's charming, eccentric, and wry. There's no one quite like BD today, and that's sad. Grab this CD, skip past the occasional dud, and enjoy some really good belly laughs.

Cabaret /jazz special 9 Aug 2006
By Artemis_oz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This warm and highly professional performance reaches heights of delight difficult to describe. Blossom Dearie's musicality, exquisite timing and sheer magic provide a concert of unsurpassable delicacy, joy, tinged always with humour drawn from wry observation.

Not to be missed.

Amazon.com - Blossom Dearie's Our Favorite Songs 6 Aug 2011
By Rita A. Dominguez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I remember listening to Blossom Dearie KCRW radio station years ago and I loved her girlish little voice. She is a wonderful jazz pianist and most definately doing New York jazz. I was thrilled that I could find a CD of her music because everything I have of hers is on vinyl. I have missed hearing her. This is a wonderful CD with several of my favorite songs, "Bernie My Attorny", "I'm Hip", and Peel Me a Grape" very funny song and appropriate theme song for any "high maintenace girlfriend".

This is a collection of songs from her Daffodil years.
I was lucky enough to hear Blossom Dearie in performance in New York in 2002. She signed a copy of this for me. Which unfortunately became damaged. I just had to replace it.
There are many songs she wrote or co-wrote such as 'Hey John' about John Lennon. The classic I'm Hip and Peel me a Grape and a trio of great comic songs : Bruce, My attourney Bernie, and the delightful Answering Machine.

Most of Blossom's more famous main label catalog is being continually being recycled. This CD may not be around for long. get it while you can
