By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 9 Sept. 2002
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Jeri is the best torch singer there has ever been - and there have been many excellent ones down the years. Of Jeri's contemporaries, Polly Bergen, Julie London, Gogi Grant and Peggy Lee are the ones that spring immediately to mind. I love them all and I have most of their music. They were generally more versatile than Jeri. Peggy, in particular, could pick up the tempo to great effect when she chose to. Jeri could never do that - her style was altogether too intimate and understated. And that's exactly why she was the best torch singer of them all - and still is, even though she has long since left us.
Jeri didn't try to do the upbeat stuff. There were, and are, plenty of others for that. When rock'n'roll took over the charts, Jeri simply carried on as if nothing had happened. When record companies put pressure on her to change, she resisted - and eventually quit the business. Jeri knew what she could do, and stuck to it. This twofer is an excellent example of Jeri's music.
Many of these songs have become classics, though it is usually other singers who are identified with these songs. When I fall in love was originally a hit for Doris Day, and later a much bigger hit for Nat King Cole. I love both those singers and I enjoy their versions. I've also heard many other excellent versions, but none of them can match Jeri. Smoke gets in your eyes dates from the 1930's although most people remember the rock'n'roll cover by the Platters. I love that version and (even better) I love Margaret Whiting's lovely romantic version on her Jerome Kern tribute album. I call her Magic Maggie, and for very good reason. Yet, even she could not match Jeri's version of the song, although she came very close.

I really cannot add much to the enthusiastic reviews above - she was indeed an expressive singer, certainly up there with the likes of Peggy Lee and Julie London.

She was disenchanted with the way popular music was going and so folded her career at a relatively early age - this means that 'completists' can acquire all her recordings without breaking the bank - and she really is well worth it!

I was unfamiliar with her singing but impressed by CD reviews and decided to buy this one. I'm very pleased that I did because I like her slightly restrained, torch song style which causes her to take her time with the song and yet hold the listener's attention. My favourite track is "I Thought of You Last Night".

This is probably my favourite of the CDs that couple two of Jeri Southern's LPs from the 1950s - here, from 1956 and 1957, respectively. The first LP is a compilation of tracks Jeri recorded with a number of different orchestras - Tutti Camarata, Victor Young, Sy Oliver, Sonny Burke, Norman Leyden and Lew Douglas. It contains some of her best-known recordings: `You better go now', `Alec Wilder's `Give me time', Victor Young's `When I fall in love' with his orchestra and a piano solo by Jeri, `I thought of you last night' and `The man that got away'. In the second LP transfer, Jeri is accompanied throughout by Tutti Camarata and his orchestra. Again, some classic Jeri Southern vocals here on such standards as `Smoke gets in your eyes', `Can I forget you' (both by Jerome Kern), `I remember you', `Autumn in New York' and `Someone to watch over me'. I have picked out some of the best-known melodies and performances but Jeri is in good voice throughout and all the backings seem to me to be fitting for the song.
