Seth has a great voice and puts these songs over well. A lovely album to play over dinner with friends or when simply alone at home. A classy performance.

I am probably her biggest fan and I love to see her still recording great songs. As always her interpretation of a songs lyrics is impeccable. A lesson for anyone learning to sing great songs well.

My favourite musical of all time and great to hear this remastered classic albumn. It remains fresh and exciting and although other covers have been released the original is still the best.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 13 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great Buckley fan I found this CD disappointing. Her voice sounds strained and harsh and some of the songs did not seem to suit her. A shame as I am always waiting for the new Buckley album.

Always been a big fan of Dionne since the 60s. Although the voice is not the same these are great new recordings of some classic Bacarach and David songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars God I love Barbara Cook, 15 Aug 2010
This review is from: The Essential Barbara (Audio CD)
This is a great collection for anyone who has yet to discover the wonderful Barbara Cook, the greatest female interpreter of a lyric. The feeling she brings to Sondheim and Rogers and Hammerstein songs is heart wrenching at times and so effortless. The warmth of the voice, the intimate atmosphere she creates in the live performances makes every concert so special. If you are learning to sing or want to go into musical theatre you must buy this collection and simply listen to the phrasing, the breathing and the sheer quality of the the greatest female musical star. The concert at the Metropolitan Opera House is simply wonderful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous - I was 19 again!, 24 Sep 2009
Loved it the first time round and even more this time - I was transported to my bedroom and the huge record player on which I played my LP's!
