5.0 out of 5 stars Another masterpiece from Susannah, 11 Sep 2003

This review is from: Someone to Watch Over Me (Audio CD)
George Gershwin co-wrote many classic songs, often with his brother Ira but also with others. Susannah was renowned as a great interpreter of old songs, so it was no surprise that she recorded an album of Gershwin songs. Nor was it any surprise that she included some obscure songs as well as some standards.
Several famous songs did find their way on to this album, including They’ll never take that away from me, Someone to watch over me, It ain’t necessarily so, I got rhythm, S’wonderful and (perhaps most famous of all) Summertime. By contrast, Will you remember me remained unpublished for many years, though the quality of this song makes one wonder why somebody didn’t record it. It was written for a show but dropped during rehearsals. The oldest song here, Drifting with the tide, is not among the more famous songs, but it is really lovely.
Susannah recorded many excellent albums, but this is as good as any of them. The number of famous songs makes it one of the easiest Susannah albums to appreciate, although there are enough obscure songs to maintain interest in the album after repeated listening.

This is the first McCorckle that I have bought and she is up there with the best, although saying nothing new.
