5.0 out of 5 stars Alone in a city after a broken romance 26 Mar 2004
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This album is built around the theme of a lonely woman in a city recovering from a broken relationship. It is many ways a typical Susannah album, full of quality songs mainly drawn from the Great American Songbook but with the occasional song of more recent origin (the title track is by Rupert Holmes, while Neil Sedaka co-wrote The hungry years). Susannah's bluesy voice is, as ever, well suited to the songs she chooses to record. Her interpretations of these songs are not always faithful to the original - another characteristic of Susannah's albums.
This album includes covers of No more blues (Antonio Jobim), Bye bye country boy (Blossom Dearie), The lady's in love with you (Frank Loesser), The hungry years and other classics such as I won't dance and I've grown accustomed to his face. The lyrics are often sad or reflective but it is a very mellow, relaxing album, only occasionally steeping up the pace a little (as on The lady's in love with you and I won't dance). If you play it as background music, you may not realize how sad some of the songs are.
This is one of many excellent albums from the late, great Susannah.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looking into her soul 23 May 2001
By Bonny - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a heartbreaking beautiful CD, particularly in light of Susannah's suicide on May 19, 2001. First released in 1983, this CD is an example of what caberet is at its best; a succession of tunes by composers like Antonio Carlos Jobim, Blossom Dearie and Oscar Brown Jr., each song a separate part of a integral theme: the romantic trials of a now-single woman in an urban setting. The genre is not new but there will never be another Susannah McCorkle. These songs will be easier to listen to for me, after the shock of her death has passed. "The Hungry Years" by Neil Sedaka/Howard Greenfield is an excellent example of the perfect emotive qualities of her voice and timing, or try "The Lady's In Love With You" (Frank Loesser/Burton Lane). If you are hearing this CD for the first time, I can pretty much guarantee it will go straight to your heart. Not a bad cut among the bunch.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great singer 27 May 2001
By Eric T. Dean - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've had this album for years and have played it countless times. The song which first caught my attention, and which I rate as near the top for a performance by any female jazz singer is "Bye Bye Country Boy". It shows Susannah at her best--wistful, brimming with emotion, feeling the pain of life's lost chances, but never overstated. On the contrary, it is moving in a quiet and deeply memorable way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never Really Got to Love Her 1 Sep 2001
By Don A. Frascinella - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Upin retrospect, I am amazed at how often Susannah seems to be speaking to us from the Great Beyond. She has left us so many songs which seem to defy her untimely end and at the same time foretell it. This one is a good example.
"The People That You Never Get to Love" is a favorite of mine because of the story it tells - a tale of missed opportunity and what might have been. How many of us could relate to that. Susannah never got to love us and we really never got to tell her how much we love her.
Again, Susannah shows us many of her multi-talented sides. She covers Jobim (a favorite of many contemporary jazz artists) with "No More Blues", Neil Sedaka with "The Hungry Years" "Foodaphobia", a really quirky song by Dave Frisberg (who wrote "Quality Time" also covered by Susannah, "The Feeling of Jazz" by The Duke, "I've Grown Accustomed to His Face" by Lerner and Lowe, The beautfiul title track which alwsys makes me cry (written by Rupert Holmes who also did "The Pina Colada Song" if you can believe that) and the last song "I'm Pulling Through".
Oh how we wish you had. You are in our hearts dear lady and you always will be.

5.0 out of 5 stars great songs great style great voice 7 July 2007
By Lars - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Great songs great style great voice! The title song rings so true; you never know what happiness can come your way unless you take the chance. This early compliation of songs shows Susannah McCorkle's as a great singer snd why she is missed.
