Price: £5.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Sung gold! You ought to have this in your collection, 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An album I've had on cassette for years.My 24 year old son still loves it from his childhood - some great songs never date. It makes you wonder what other wonderful songs Otis would have produced if he'd
lived. We'll never know,but at least we have these!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!, 21 May 2014

It's lovely to have these recordings of Anita - although some images are a little fuzzy (technology of the '60s!)
she really is a captivating singer- here you can see all the small gestures and facial expressions that make her live performances so engaging - PURE Magic.

5.0 out of 5 stars This should be in your Jazz collection, 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this DVD after seeing Youtube postings of Anita singing her heart out on tour recordings from the 1960s, To hear her sing is good, but actually, to see footage of her live performances is very touching - she gives everything to her audience - I so wish I could have seen her sing!

Another set of brilliantly arranged songs, all beautifully performed - and fronted by an amazing singer who holds nothing back.

This review is from: Blossom Dearie (Audio CD)
She has a sweet voice - but sounds like a five year old
Okay if you like your jazz on the light side!

3.0 out of 5 stars Rich, velvet voice... but not much emotion, 20 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thought I'd always REALLY liked Carmen Mcrae
so I shelled out on these- but I got tired of her
pretty quickly.
Don't get me wrong...she's fine for smooth Jazz,
but if you're after something a little deeper..?
Hmmm.

5.0 out of 5 stars You'd be MAD to ignore this gem!, 20 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
WHY??
This is one of the BEST set of recordings I have ever heard.

Anita O'day is now - UNDESERVEDLY AND SADLY- largely
ignored and forgotten in the world of Jazz....I mean, how many
people have even HEARD of Anita O'Day?
No, She's not Ella Fitzgerald or Billie Holiday, but she has
many qualities that often put those two better known singers
in the SHADE...She's quite unique, and of all the great singers
of her era, she's my favourite - creative, plucky and honest
in her richly varied tones - I have to say, if my house was
ever on fire, I'd have to rescue this volume first!
