Format: Audio CD
This three disc release from BMG Australia is pretty close to being the definitive collection assembled on her RCA Victor recordings. The sound is great and you get a lot of great music for your money, but that being said, it is missing a couple of essential tracks from this period. "Not One Minute More" (Billboard Hot 100 #16) was her third million-seller and "Won't You Come Home, Bill Bailey?" (Billboard Hot 100 #98) became one of her signature performances, and both are sorely missed on this otherwise amazing collection. Another track missing is my personal favorite, "The Most Beautiful Words", which peaked at number #67 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart back in 1961. All this aside, this collection does manage to paint a great portrait of one of the best American songbirds in last fifty years.

Disc 1: The Swinging Della

Disc one consists mostly of tracks from her 1960 Grammy-nominated album "Della" (Billboard Hot 100 #35) and her 1961 swing album "Special Delivery" (Billboard Hot 200 #113). Della was never a hardcore Jazz singer, but that doesn't mean she couldn't work it just as well as Sarah, Ella and Carmen. Proof of her amazing interpretive skills are evident on such tracks as: "Until the Real Thing Comes Along", "Thou Swell" and "If I Could Be with You (One Hour Tonight". Her diction is spot on and her meaning is always clear. Her vibrato is unlike anyone's, and entirely of her own character. Della was capable of almost any musical direction. From a hard-swinging opening "Blue Skies" to the tenderness of "If You Are But a Dream". Her biggest hit "Don't You Know" (Billboard Hot 100 #2) is also included on disc one.

HASH(0x92467d08) out of 5 stars Della Reese, need I say more? 6 July 2004
By D. Allen Sharpe Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Legendary Della Reese, a definitive collection of some of her best known works is a remarkable, and affordable buy. From the seductive Whatever Lola Wants, to the beat of Come-On-A-My House this CD just can't be beat. It is a must have for all Reese lovers and makes an excellent cocktail party soundtrack. With a total of 50 songs this CD is the best buy!

HASH(0x92467d5c) out of 5 stars Cha cha cha! 13 Feb. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Della swings and sings her heart out in this fabulous collection of her earlier recordings. In some decidedly sexy tunes like "Whatever Lola Wants," the religious Della sings the songs with her tongue placed firmly in her cheek. And that's just fine with me. For when Della sings a tune, it stays sung!
HASH(0x9349651c) out of 5 stars Della can Sing! And It's all here! 4 May 2010
By Michael Gannon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Della Reese is unquestionably one of the greatest female vocalist of our time. Strong and fluid yet she can delivery sweetly as is necessary. Her style is unlike any other. There are many great tunes on this CD. My personal favorite is 'Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone'. I know you will find yours here too! Enjoy!

Mine is on this CD and it's called "How Did He Look"?

It will break your heart.

Della rules, with her rich, smoky voice.
