By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 14 Feb. 2011
Format: Audio CD
This was Susannah's first solo album, released in 1976 in the UK where she was living and working at the time. It has since emerged that she made some demos that were eventually released as Beginnings 1975, but they were never intended for commercial release. This album didn't do much business in 1976, but was eventually released in 1981 in America.

The songs here include some of the composer's famous songs along with some less famous songs, setting the pattern that Susannah always adopted for her composer-themed albums. Of all Harry's songs, the most famous song of all is surely I only have eyes for you, which is featured here, along with Lullaby of Broadway, Chattanooga choo-choo, I had the craziest dream (as the first half of a medley with No love no nothing) and Forty-Second Street. Another famous Harry Warren song, September in the rain, did not make this album, but Susannah eventually recorded that song for her album As time goes by, which is the only one of Susannah's albums never released on CD as of February 2011. I do hope it gets a CD release one day.

Susannah and her team must have had a hard job choosing what to record and what to leave out, omitting such classics as You'll never know, On the Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe, You must have been a beautiful baby, You're getting to be a habit with me, The more I see you and At last, just to name a few other great Harry Warren songs. Nevertheless, all the songs here are excellent and it's not difficult to find versions of the famous songs not featured here.

From the very beginning, Susannah had the ability to interpret a song while respecting the composer's intent, so her versions invariably sound a little different from other versions that you hear.

Susannah McCorkle was a sometimes underated singer who suffered a number of personal problems before her tragic death in 2001. This CD recorded in London in 1976 was her first proper recording (originally issued of course as an LP)and she was then full of youthful enthusiasm and natural charm. She had come late to jazz singing after another career but by the time she was thirty - as on this release - she was very much more than just capable, both lyrically and melodically.

This is in some ways an underrated record because other enthusiasts for her singing often prefer her later material where her technical abilities and sophistication were more in evidence. But here she is natural, very competent and a genuine pleasure to listen to, in that special area of music where jazz-influenced quality singers sing quality standards. The accompaniments are varied, some with just piano, some with a trio, and some with the addition of the excellent Bruce Turner on clarinet and alto, who sounds very much at home here and contributes some of his best recorded work.

The record is carefully planned (much influenced by the excellent pianist here, Keith Ingham) and McCorkle catches very well the different moods of a good selection of sometimes rare songs by Harry Warren: the funny and lyrically demanding "I Take to You", the cleverly worded Johnny Mercer lyric for "The Girlfriend of the Whirling Dervish", the haunting "Remember My Forgotten Man", the piercing torch song "You Let Me Down" (including the verse) and the very touching "No Love No Nothin'".

This CD with its relaxed programme and good quality recording, will be enjoyed by those who like a good singer singing quality songs, with a backing which gives plenty of space for the musicians to make their individual contributions. Everything about it is very highly recommended. But if you like the playing of Bruce Turner, it is an absolute must!

From the very beginning, Susannah had the ability to interpret a song while respecting the composer's intent, so her versions invariably sound a little different from other versions that you hear. Perhaps the most noticeably different track here is Chattanooga choo-choo, which provides a nice contrast with Glenn Miller's original.

For those who enjoy Susannah's music, this album is well up to the standard of those that followed. The only mystery is why it took so long for it to become available on CD.
5.0 out of 5 stars A gem, both for Susannah and for Harry Warren 8 Jun. 2013

A New Yorker friend recommended Susannah McCorkle, back in the 80s, when I said I was a jazz fan. It took a while to find a used cassette in the hinterlands of KY, but this album was it. I have been hooked on McCorkle and Warren ever since. Thank you, thank you, Amazon, for making this splendid album available on MP3!
