Product Description

Vintage and traditonal songs sung by Julie Andrews. Plus rare soundtrack recordings from her memorable appearance on the Dinah Shore Chevy Show.

Most of the tracks for this superb album come from 1957 - original studio recordings, comprising favourite and traditional old songs from Britain and Ireland. Two wonderful bonus tracks, however, are taken directly from television soundtrack recordings - and never before released in any form.

These fourteen tracks demonstrate just how the young Julie Andrews took New York's theatre-goers by storm with her Broadway appearances in 'The Boy Friend' and 'My Fair Lady'. Backed by superb orchestrations from the Irwin Kostal orchestra, the twenty-one year old star is in sublime form, with pitch-perfect voice, most sensitive phrasing and humour in this scintillating programme of much loved songs from Britain and Ireland. They are all jewels. In addition, there are two lovely recordings taken from Julie's appearance on Dinah Shore's Chevy Show in 1958. Julie sings "I Could Have Danced All Night" and duets with Dinah on "Whispering Hope".

Due to her seminal films such as 'The Sound Of Music' and 'Mary Poppins,' Julie Andrews still has the most enormous following all around the world. This fine CD will be a must-have addition to their collections.

This is a gorgeous record - lovely arrangements, charming songs and of course, beautiful, crystal clear and pure singing. Brings tears to the eyes. I particullarly enjoyed "Pedro, the Fisherman" and "I could have danced night" where she really reaches for the high notes and sings with wonderful energy and fun.

HASH(0x9a1e542c) out of 5 stars Not exactly what we'd hoped for 22 Mar. 2008
By DVD buff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
On the surface, this looks like it might be an interesting collection. It contains all the tracks from THE LASS WITH THE DELICATE AIR (1957), plus two bonus tracks taken from the NBC Dinah Shore Chevy Show in 1958.

However, it's not what I was expecting. First, it's a CD-R, not a "real" CD. Second, the tracks from THE LASS WITH THE DELICATE AIR are presented in their mono mixes. I was hoping for the tracks in stereo -- both mono and stereo versions of the album were released (in 1957 and 1958, respectively). To date, we haven't had this complete album issued in stereo. So if you already have the Japanese CD of LASS, then you've got tracks 1-12 from this set.

The two bonus tracks are a nice addition, however. They're not the best sound quality, being taken from the audio of an old television broadcast, but they are quite clear and pleasant. "Whispering Hope" is especially nice, since this is the only recording we have of Julie Andrews singing that song.

If you don't already have THE LASS WITH THE DELICATE AIR, this would be a good way to get it at a lower price than the Japanese CD. But let's hope for a stereo release sometime soon...

HASH(0x99f053a8) out of 5 stars Julie's debut solo album 10 Feb. 2010
By Byron Kolln - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Recorded during her hectic schedule of starring as Eliza in the Broadway production of "My Fair Lady", THE LASS WITH THE DELICATE AIR was in fact Julie Andrews' very first full-length solo album for the RCA label, a collection of traditional English ballads and folk songs.

In her recent autobiography ("Home"), Julie shared her rather philosophical memories of doing the album, stating--quite bluntly--that "RCA hoped I would choose pieces that were more popular, [but] I was very keen to record these songs, since I had an instinct that there would come a day when these sweet minor classics would not be as easy for me to sing".

Indeed, as early as 1957, the grind of delivering eight performances a week in the demanding "My Fair Lady" was playing havoc with Andrews' higher soprano register; eventually her voice "matured" and re-shaped itself into the supple, warm soprano you hear in subsequent movies like "The Sound of Music" and "Darling Lili".

This reissue from the Flare label includes the complete LASS WITH THE DELICATE AIR programme (in mono); plus two very rare tracks from the Dinah Shore/Chevy Show, recorded shortly after Julie left the Broadway company of "My Fair Lady".
