This review is from: Live on Stage Town Hall New York (Audio CD)
Audiophile, in their continuing Lee Wiley series, have now put together an album of all her contributions to the Eddie Condon series of Town Hall and Ritz Theatre concerts in 1944 and 1945. This was an excellent idea and, put together like this, has resulted in a delightful album of standards sung by one of the finest ever interpreters of the Great American Songbook caught in her prime and beautifully accompanied by various members of the 'Condon gang'.

Many of the songs, of course, were also recorded by Lee Wiley in the studio but these performances are in no way inferior and show once again what a wonderful artist she was.

Also included is an interview which is fascinating to hear. It's tucked away at the end of the album - very sensible as I am sure most listeners will want to hear the songs more often.

As is usual from this label, the remastering is very good indeed and, although not the finest Lee Wiley album available, can be recommended without reservation.
