5.0 out of 5 stars DINAH DELIGHTS ON HER BEST FROM CAPITOL RECORDS!
Dinah Shore's long recording career included a period with Capitol Records when she produced six acclaimed albums, with all having been previously issued by EMI as "2 on 1" CDs. It can therefore be argued this superb compilation of songs chosen from the same source is superfluous. However, in my opinion these selections will appeal to buyers who prefer variety rather than...

3.0 out of 5 stars Great voice and audio but poor material.
A great voice wasted on soppy, boring standards only to be appreciated at 2 in the morning after too many drinks (tempo bit too slow) by the fantastically over-rated Gershwin, Porter and Rogers, make up Cd 1 .

Cd2 material even worse, with in your face orchestras trying to steal the limelight and horrible jazzy riffs.

Buy some rockabilly instead or...

This review is from: Dinah Shore - Best Of (The Capitol Recordings) (Audio CD)
Dinah Shore's long recording career included a period with Capitol Records when she produced six acclaimed albums, with all having been previously issued by EMI as "2 on 1" CDs. It can therefore be argued this superb compilation of songs chosen from the same source is superfluous. However, in my opinion these selections will appeal to buyers who prefer variety rather than concept with such a bargain-priced double-CD of forty-eight superb tracks encouraging purchase by casual and also younger buyers eager to enjoy Dinah's vocal magic.

Of the songs, SENTIMENTAL JOURNEY and TAKING A CHANCE ON LOVE are amongst six from YES INDEED! on which Nelson Riddle did the conducting honours in 1959; IT HAD TO BE YOU heads eleven wonderful standards from DINAH SINGS, PREVIN PLAYS(1960); WHEN I GROW TOO OLD TO DREAM and six others emanate from SOMEBODY LOVES ME(1960). I'LL WALK ALONE and seven others are re-recordings of her 40's hits which graced THE FABULOUS HITS OF DINAH SHORE(1962) leaving BYE BYE BLUES and eight other upbeat or bluesy numbers to impress when accompanied by the legendary vibraphonist Red Norvo on DINAH SINGS SOME BLUES WITH RED(1960). Finally, there's a return to Dinah's roots as she goes Dixieland for WAY DOWN YONDER IN NEW ORLEANS and six others from the 1962 album DINAH, DOWN HOME!(1962). Throughout, Dinah's superb vocal style is beyond reproach with songs which are trusted and true standards.

Attractive art-work includes some glamorous head-shots of Dinah; the notes are effusive and help to make this a recommended top-notch release.

Buy some rockabilly instead or maybe Francoise Hardy for some better songs and an even sexier voice.
