Product Description

CD Description

This collection celebrates the legend that is Gracie Fields, famous for war-time hits like "Sally", "Wish Me Luck As You Wave Me Goodbye" and "Now Is The Hour" and a true star until her death in the 1970s. This brand new selection brings together 25 recordings, including five US radio broadcasts from the 1930s which have never been released commercially before now. In addition, a brand new duet has been recorded, using 21st Century recording techniques to add the voice of Jane Horrocks to Gracie’s original recording of "Now Is The Hour".

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice introduction to Gracie's music 18 Oct 2010
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
While Gracie's dedicated fans would be better to ignore this and buy the 5 CD boxed set Gracie Fields: Gold - 100 Songs From Our Gracie, I saw this at a giveaway price and decided to buy it, even though I'll probably end up buying the boxed set myself. Gracie was an all-round entertainer - comedienne, actress and singer, but my interest is limited to her music. The recordings here all date from the period 1935 to 1947. Gracie's high soprano voice may not appeal to everybody (those who don't like it might describe it as shrill) but I love it.

I read other reviews that commented on hitherto rare tracks allegedly found in a garage. My research indicates that these tracks (Sing as we go, That old feeling, Lancashire blues, Smile when you say goodbye and an Irving Berlin medley of This year's kisses / The song is ended / How deep is the ocean?) were originally released only in America. Gracie's dedicated fans of long standing may nevertheless be familiar with these songs, but my guess is that most people who listen to this CD have never heard these recordings before.

Even more controversial is the final track, a duet with Jane Horrocks (who played the role of Gracie in a biopic) on Now is the hour. It probably doesn't help that this duet version follows immediately after Gracie's solo version of the same song, but it`s easy to stop the CD at the end of the penultimate track if you don't like it. Actually I don't mind it. In any case, there are 24 great recordings here that certainly offer value for money at the price I paid. This CD provides a great introduction to Gracie`s music, although if you have to pay full price you would be better to pay the extra for the 5-CD.boxed set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Grace 23 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD
Just received my cd today. Loved every minute of it,lots of cheerful songs to lift the spirits and well balanced with a few weepies. A great compilation, I bought this after watching Jane Horrocks star in 'Our Gracie'. These songs were from an era before I was born but there is something for every generation on the album. It contains the song 'Take me to your heart again'and I think it did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gracie 2 Jan 2012
By Flossie
Format:Audio CD
This item was bought as a christmas gift for a specific reason, the recipient wanted one of the songs to be played at her funeral service as she wants to be organized when the time comes, so to speak. I have heard this before. The recipient was very pleased with her gift and has been playing the CD, much to her enjoyment.

4.0 out of 5 stars What's new ? 26 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD
An OK selection if your new to Gracie, but if you're already a fan there is nothing here that we don't already have (except the last track, of which more later) so what's all this publicity gumph about rare records being found in an old garage ? though I have to admit that some of the sound editing sounds as though it might have been found in a garage: after being driven over a few times. Yet other tracks have a deep and rich sound though not good enough to listen to loud and bangin the way I like Gracie.

As to the last track, the duet with Jane Horror's, Oh-My-God, it is AWFUL. Thin and weedy lisp mixed with a strong, beautiful and confident voice. An insult to Gracie. If you can't get to your machine to turn it off before this abomination starts don't blame me, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

My advice, there are cheeper and better compilations on the market.
