HASH(0x98f9b0d8) out of 5 stars MAGIC OF MINNELLI~BRAVO LIZA!!! 28 Nov. 2008
By Bradly Briggs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Liza Minnelli is the singing wonder of her generation and this tremendous collection is proof...stunning collection should have made the Legendary Diva a Superstar long before Cabaret but radio for some strange reason refused to play these awesome recordings that would easily have sold in the millions plus won a number of well-deserved Grammy Awards...doesn't say much for the music industry in general or the lame radio-programmers of America who were all going psychedelic at the time of Liza's stunning A&M debut. Self-titled "Liza Minnelli" is the extraordinary A&M Records recording debut with incredible performances like "Married/You'd Better Sit Down Kids", "Waiting For My Friend", "The Look Of Love", "My Mammy", "For No One", plus a number of Peter Allen & Randy Newman gems making this landmark album magnificent from start to finish! "Come Saturday Morning" is another awesome collection of great songs filled with more fine singing from Liza like smoldering & mesmerizing performances such as "On A Slow Boat To China", "Don't Let Me Lose This Dream", a haunting "McArthur Park/Didn't We" featuring Peter Allen on piano while "New Feelin'" is a charged rocking and soulful set containing a passionate & stirring "Maybe This Time" plus a sublime gospelized "God Bless The Child". Now by the early 70's only "Singer/Songwriter's" were given airplay but in early 70's "New Feelin'" Liza really lets it rip on old standards such as "Love For Sale" & "I Wonder Where My Easy Riders Gone" while "Can't Help Loving That Man" & "The Man I Love" are soul-deep & satisfying. An exciting early live album recorded at the legendary Olympia Theater in Paris is included along with superb unreleased gems with a jazzy tropicial feel featuring glorious & mesmerizing vocals from Liza.
Liza recorded a rich variety of standards during her productive stint at A & M Records but the real surprise here is the greatness of the contemporary material and unique originality of the varied and richly illuminating performances...the legendary lady can really sing and this magical & wondrous musical treasure should be given a Special "Grammy Award" as it is better late than never to award a deserving stunning collection filled with timeless great performances!!!
Bravo Liza!

HASH(0x98f91ec4) out of 5 stars A Collectors' Choice: Early Liza 28 Dec. 2008
By Bruce K. Hanson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When I first saw this two CD set advertised in Collectors' Choice mail order magazine I literally yelped before calling to order a copy. First of all, I would finally own the rare "Liza Minellei: Live at the Olympia in Paris", a 1972 album of which I had only heard portions. That album is a wonderful glimpse of the singer on the verge of superstardom; not quite capturing the all out frenetic style that she would soon become famous for. Secondly, I would be able to listen to a non-scratched version of her 1969 album, "Come Saturday Morning" which includes not only that sweet (but all too short) song from "The Sterile Cuckoo" but also truly beautiful takes on "Raggedy Ann& Raggedy Andy", "Leavin' On A Jet Plane", and a breath-taking version of "On A Slow Boat to China" that will knock your socks off. I forgot just what a good voice Minnelli had as her obvious stage performance skills sometimes obliviated her natural vocal gifts. In third place on this compilation is Minnelli's first A&M entry, a 1968 album with such diverse titles as "My Mammy", "The Happy Time", "The Look of Love", and "For No One". There's also her first recording of a later mainstay of her repertoire, "Married" coupled with "You Better Sit Down Kids". There are also outtakes from this album including "Once in a Lifetime", "I'm Looking Over a Four Leaf Clover" and "Snow". The only weak part of this CD set is the album, "New Feelin'" where the arrangements just don't let Minnelli do justice to otherwise great songs such as "Stormy Weather", "Come Rain or Come Shine", and "Easy Rider's Gone". However, there are other treats including "Frank Mills" from the Broadway musical, "Hair" and "Tell Me That You Love Me, Junie Moon" a song penned by Minnelli's then husband, Peter Allen. Still, even with a few poor choices in arrangements and selection of material this new release is an excellent partner to DRG's wonderful "Liza Minnelli: The Complete (Capitol) Collection"; a welcomed addition in efforts to own all of the singer's commercially recorded material; and an excellent reminder of just what a great talent is Liza Minnelli. Kudoos to Collectors' Choice for another excellent re-release of out of print records with the original cover art intact; to Amazon.com for picking up this independent release; and to Scott Schecter for once again penning excellent liner notes.

HASH(0x9a4623cc) out of 5 stars A Real Gift For Liza Fans - and Complete Too 9 Dec. 2008
By gassy goon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This 2 CD Set is one of the most well done CD anthologies that I've ever bought. It's a true labor of love that the producer of this set put into making Liza Minnelli's highly valued recordings at A&M Records into a totally complete double CD. Everything about this set will have a fan extremely satisfied. All four of Liza's A&M albums are here in beautifully restored sound in their entirety. Not just that, but there are many unreleased or rare bonus tracks. And to enhance this tremendous package is the expertly written liner notes , which are very informative. Plus, the visuals of color photos and more.

Liza's late 60's/early 70's recordings are a delight to hear. You can hear transformation from her earlier Capitol album recordings , where she did primarily standards into doing more contemporary , hip songs by the principal songwriters of the time. Liza was young herself, and I find it more satisfying hearing her sing songs from her generation, and not just the old songs that she did for Capitol. There are so many great songs on this 2 CD set that are worthy of being elevated in status in the Minnelli canon of songs. The 3 studio albums are all good: LIZA MINNELLI, COME SATURDAY MORNING and NEW FEELIN' , which I think is really good because it adds contemporay pop style arrangements to standards that makes them more hip. It's not the disaster some say it it, unless they just love the old stuff. But Liza has always been diversified, and every song on here offers the listener something to like. The live album is also very good, as you can hear the live Minnelli personality breaking out in a 1969 Paris concert. What's to complain about on this set? Nothing at all. It's perfect. Just what the fans wanted. There have been endless repackages of her A&M material on CD & albums for years, always missing out on some songs. Well, this corrects the problem, as it has everything she recorded for A&M, right before her Liza With A Z and Cabaret superstar success. Many thanks to the people who put together such a remarkable package. Definitely one of the best CD reissues I've ever bought.

HASH(0x98f9b6c0) out of 5 stars Probably because it was PRE - "LIZA WITH A Z"... 3 Dec. 2008
By Music2424 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
...Liza's first couple studio albums for A&M Records were largely ignored by the buying public, both young and old. The elder crowd didn't, as a rule, purchase albums by younger artists whose work they didn't know well and hadn't heard, and Liza Minnelli was not considered a contemporary by younger buyers - even though she was closer to them in age. They hadn't heard her on their transistor radios. Thus, a real commerical quandary.

However for those who simply know Minnelli's work on her live albums, you will be pleasantly surprised to find that her vocals here are based on singing with actual nuance and real feeling, not bombast and histrionics (which works so much better on stage in the excitement of live performances than on record).

In my humble opinion, these are not perhaps the most exciting vocal performances by the gifted Liza Minnelli, but interestingly enough, they are among her absolute best. She is gentle on some tracks and wistful, but never boring... she truly interprets the lyric dramatically and with simplicity ("Simon", "Come Saturday Morning"). And her "The Look of Love" is just plain sexy. In fact, Liza's version of this golden chestnut stands with the best of them. No small thing.

The sound, overall, is of its time, and in quite a few cases it does not transcend, but it is still a delightful listen. In any case, it is truly wonderful to finally have this collection available for the buying public along with some bonus tracks and fantastic liner notes composed by Scott Schechter that cradle the music in a fun and insightful way.
