Format: Audio CD
There have been many compilations of Kay's music on Capitol. This may not be the strongest of them but has much to commend it, covering both her spells with Capitol – she recorded for a different label in the mid to late fifties. Thus, this collection has music recorded up to 1954 and from 1959 to 1964. Her biggest hit during the intervening years was Rock and roll waltz, a song that is included here in the form of a 1964 re-recording.
This British compilation misses out many of Kay's American hits but it does include her first American number one (Wheel of fortune) as well as Fool fool fool, Comes-a-long-a-love (her first British number one), Side by side, Half a photograph, Allez-vous en, Changing partners, If you love me really love me (originally an Edith Piaf song written in French as Hymn l'amour) and Am I a toy or a treasure, all significant hits in America. Together with I'm the lonesomest gal in town (a non-hit from 1950) those are the only tracks here that were recorded during her first spell with Capitol. The remainder are from the period 1959 to 1964.
Aside from a cover of her own Rock and roll waltz, the later recordings include other brilliant covers. Crazy was written by Willie Nelson but made famous by Patsy Cline. Going to Chicago blues is a Count Basie classic. I love Paris was originally an American hit for Les Baxter but has been recorded by many others. It had to be you was a hit for several singers and bands in 1924 and revived by several more in 1944, which has been recorded by many great singers. Lazy river is a Hoagy Carmichael classic. Lovesick blues is a cover of a song popularised by Hank Williams, though the song dates from the twenties.
More than you know was originally a 1930 hit for Ruth Etting.

Got this for an aunt of mine and as I'd never heard of her (a bit before my time)I'd thought I'd play it.What a pleasant surprise!
I found I liked a good half of this cd especially her slow bluesy numbers with the tight backing plus a couple of swinging numbers (I love Paris,you're just in love).The other half verges towards country and western a bit which I'm afraid isnt my bag (thats a personal thing) but they are good of their type.A cracking little album
