Live at the Talk of the Town / Caterina Valente
Price: £11.27

5.0 out of 5 stars Great experience 2CD Caterina Valente Live!, 17 May 2014
Caterina Valente was in her active years a household name, she delivered so many beautiful gems in her time! It's great to see and hear that Vocalion honours this great lady by re-releasing her material again on CD for the world to enjoy it again! These two live Albums "Live at the Talk of the Town" 1970 and "Neue Revue Tour Deutschland" 1969 are two of those 'Live' gems, 44 years after their original release, they are available again to the public. Caterina Valente a true worldstar, she often used her voice as a musical instrument and controlling it to perfection! I've wittnessed her Live many times and she Always delivered what she promised, she a professional through and through....never satisfied with less! The only thing I can advise you is buy this 2CD set, lay back, relax and let Caterina do the rest! You'll be amazed...how powerfull this lady can be!

4.0 out of 5 stars Strange combination!, 16 May 2014
The album "Wake up and Shake up" from 1973 was not one of my favourite albums, a few songs I thought were okay. It sounded so different from everything Caterina did before...., but I guess it's a matter of taste...either you like it or you don't! The other album "Ich wär'so gern bei dir" is an album from 1974 and contains Polydor songs from the fifties in a new more modern arrangement, that was an album I liked immediatly! The arrangements from Heinz Gietz and Kurt Feltz, two great german composers/lyricists did a marvellous job, it sounds absolutely fantastic! I think Caterina will aggree! Listen to this Vocalion CD and find out for yourself! Those two albums were the last DECCA recordings, then she signed with EMI-Electrola to do 5 more albums together with the two people I mentioned before...Heinz Gietz and Kurt Feltz and with great success!!! Have fun with Caterina's music!

5.0 out of 5 stars Two great Valente albums come together as one!, 16 May 2014
Caterina Valente needs no introduction, she's music, dance and theatre in person! She's made a permanent mark in the showbizz world! Her talent and skills are known throughout the whole world! These two great albums; "En France" from 1962 and "Pariser Chic, Pariser Charme" recorded two years later in mono from 1964 and the stereo version another two years later in 1966 were albums that sold very well! Caterina was on the top of her career and you can here her artistry is in full bloom. She uses her voice like an instrument which she controls perfectly! The "En France" is full of Charles Trenet melodies, Charles Trenet was a famous singer/composer in France at the time and Caterina loved singing his compositions! The "Pariser Chic, Pariser Charme" contains succesfull French songs translated into german and done very well I might say. These albums were long out of print and thanks to Vocalion we can know enjoy them once more in a digitally remastered version! Listen to this CD and you will hear Caterina Valente's fabulous voice stroking your ears and you will say......QUI...QUI....QUI....that lady can sing!!! So put this CD in your CDplayer, lay back, relax and let Caterina do the rest!!!

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Oh I know Caterina way back from the fifties when she was with Polydor and on her way to become Europes big sensation! Caterina Valente LIVE is a fabulous experience, you can tell that she has music in her blood, she breaths music, she is the personafying of music! Born in a famous artist family....6 generations of Valentes...entertaining people! These two CDs are an absolute "MUST HAVE" if you like good honest music and love Caterina! She Always gives her very best and never leaves you with anything but a good feeling! She is a true artist in the purest form and a true worldstar!
Now she enjoys her well diserved rest after more than 60 years of hard work....good for you Caterina....!!!!!
She has a warm place in my heart and I wisch her all the happiness and luck and health in the whole wide world!
Caterina you go girl!

5.0 out of 5 stars It most certainly met my expectations, 11 Dec 2013

This review is from: Another Side of Sandie (Audio CD)
Sandie Shaw, eversince I saw her barefoot win the Eurovision Songcontest in 1967 with her much covered "Puppet on a string" she got my sympathy! I've never met her face to face....would love to, but she still has that sympathy until today! This CD 'Another side of Sandie' is fabulous and I love it very much!
I have many CDs with her from RPM...they are great as well!
She's one of my all-time favorite british female singers!

1.0 out of 5 stars How can one review???, 10 Oct 2013
What is there to review???
There's no tracklisting!!!
Or do we just review the cover????
Maybe if the tracklisting was available, it would be a whole different matter all together!
Bur probably it's the same compilation as Always....no surprises!

This review is from: Boomerang [DVD] [1992] (DVD)
I bought the movie for the part of Strangé by Grace Jones.
Eddie Murphy is not very funny in his stereotype role of womaniser!
Grace Jones with her brutality, extravaganza, humor and boldness steals the show!!!
I love her "no nonsens" attitude!

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating Brigitte, 16 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Master Serie (Audio CD)
On this CD Brigitte Bardot takes us on a musical journey, she has done some wonderful recordings in her days. You can say I'm fond of her way of making music with the best writers, composers and producers! She could sing and I think she hasn't gotten the credit for that part of her career! She should get it!
