I've given this compilation five stars because it rates as excellent value for money. I do have her earlier compilation "The girl from the street" which has many of these tracks on, but there are loads more on this one, particularly a song I've been looking for over the past 20 years since I first heard it on a BBC Radio 2 tribute programme to her....."I know you're mine". If you download no other song, you HAVE to have this one. It's a beautiful torch song/ballad, sung in Betty's low register and was the song I used for my first dance at my wedding (albeit culled from the radio broadcast). Just listen to those wonderfully romantic lyrics.

Betty is famously quoted as loathing her own voice, but I love it. There are some gorgeous songs on here "I'm getting sentimental over you", "I'll take romance" and "The moon remembered" to name but three. There are also the novelty songs that she hated and I can take or leave those, but what I love are the bonus tracks - the tracks from her films and the live recordings from Henry Hall. They make you really appreciate just what a powerful voice she had.

The only slight downside is the hissing in the background of some of the tracks, which could have been removed but hasn't been. I tend to consider this as adding atmosphere to the songs which are over 50 years old now. And then of course there's "I know you're mine". Buy it, you won't be disappointed.

Oh, and the title of this review?? I met Betty on a couple of social occasions in my lifetime and she was exactly as you saw her on screen: smiley, friendly, happy and so very lovely.
