The recordings on this 1992 compilation date from 1962-1964. Selections for this CD come from the following albums In Love (1962); Dinah '62; Back To The Blues (1963); Dinah '63; The Dinah Washington-A Stranger On Earth Years (1963); Dinah Washington (1964); The World Of Dinah Washington (1964); A Stranger On Earth (1964)
The sound transfers are excellent. The orchestra's of Fred Norman & Don Costa provide the backings. There are plenty of definitive performances from this last phase of her recording career. My favourites are "He's My Guy"; "Something's Gotta Give" & "Fly Me to the Moon".
This CD can be obtained for a very reasonable price so shop around for a good deal. You will not be disappointed with the content from the Roulette Years...
