By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 7 April 2003
Format: Audio CD
I bought this originally because I wanted her cover of Glen Campbell's hit By the time I get to Phoenix, which is quite different to the original. I enjoy both versions in their different ways. Two Irving Berlin classics, There's no business like show business and Cheek to cheek, are also given new interpretations by Susannah.
There are other classic songs from the Great American Songbook here too. They don't all get re-interpreted - Susannah's version of A fine romance is more or less standard, but maybe she realised that there was no way to improve on the original arrangement.
It took a while for this album to grow on me, because Susannah has a style all her own, but I eventually realised just how talented she was and bought all her original albums. Susannah is not the kind of singer to sell in huge quantities, but she carved her own niche and her music has given me enormous pleasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars The music will play on 1 Oct. 2001
By Don A. Frascinella - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Due to her tragic death, Susannah's music was stilled but has not stopped. Through her CDs, she manages to keep the music playing for us.
Susannah's interpretations of songs continue to impress me. The highlight on this one is "There's No Business Like Show Business". But it is a far cry from the Ethel Merman version. Whereas that one was a celebration and joy of show business, Susannah's version is a sad, depressing rendition which shows the pain and heartbreak of show business, such as which she might have experienced.
Susannah also shows her ability to give a new read to "By the Time I Get to Phoenix", and gives it a more winsome spin than does Glenn Campbell. The title track "How Do You Keep the Music Playing?" is a question that we might have asked Susannah. Perhaps she is talking directly to us. The CD also has the usual effort from Dave Frishberg, "Blizzard of Lies". "Ain't Safe to Go Nowhere" is a something we are all thinking today and Susannah's smokey lyric almost sees into the future.
Of course, Susannah was a whiz at handling all types of material and she proved it on this CD. Even though she is no longer with us, the wonderful music keeps playing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet and charming 4 Aug. 2001
By Bonny - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Susannah made this CD in 1985, when her voice was sweet and charming, before the sadness crept in. She's been gone now for almost three months, and in that time I hadn't played this recording. It's really hard to "rate" the performance of someone who eventually took her own life, but this really IS a pretty, almost delicate album. "Ain't Safe To Go Nowhere" is my favorite cut, Susannah's vocal good-natured without a touch of sarcasm. This CD also includes "Outra Vez", an Antonio Carlos Jobim song sung as only Susannah could, and George Gershwin's "Slap That Bass". I'm giving this CD 5-stars for Susannah's sincerity and because, she cannot be duplicated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Susannah McCorkle, "How Do You Keep The Music Playing" 23 Feb. 2006
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Exquisite Jazz Voacalization! That is for starters. She is so reminisicent of the great female vocalist of late 1950s and early 1960s. Her phrasing leaves nothing to be desired and the instrumentalist backing her singing are very adept and easy on the ear. Put all this together on a Bose or any other fine sound system and you are in for a wonderful musical experience. Best dollars spent in a long long time and I know as I am 74 years of age.

Susannah doesn't just sing songs, she tells stories. She sings the title cut better than anyone-doing justice to the composers. Her cover of "No business like show business" is an instant classic, and so much better than any other version that it overwhelms the listener.
