Capable of singing jazz, pop and rock 'n' roll with equal aplomb, Joanie Sommers was one of the most accomplished and versa-tile singers of her generation, so much so that at various times she was hailed as "The Voice of the '60s" and "The Pepsi Girl" (after contributing vocals to several jingles for the soft drink brand). However, while much of her work for the Warner Bros. label has been reissued (most notably by another Real Gone release, The Complete Warner Bros. Singles), her subsequent recordings for the Columbia label have re- mained untouched in the digital age until now! "Come Alive - The Complete Columbia Recordings" includes the complete stereo version of Joanie's 1966 album "Come Alive" - a title de-rived from a Pepsi ad campaign of the era - plus nine non-LP single sides, four of them unreleased. Joanie's manager Alan Eichler contributes liner notes featuring quotes from the singer herself, with photos from her private archive. This was the last album Joanie recorded be-fore going into semi-retirement in the '70s; it's a key part of her legacy.

An 'A' on packaging with important and appropriate liner notes.
Thank you Columbia for going into the vaults for this treasure. Keep it up, please. I wish you would release "The Beginning" by Bobbe Norris. Never released on tape or CD and according to Amazon there are some singles that could be added. Go Ahead, Make My Christmas.
