I bought this album when it was first released and it is great to hear it again remastered and sounding better than ever.Cole Porter was one of the greatest composers of popular music and his songs have never been served better than by Ella Fitzgerald. A classic album that has endured and will continue to as long as there are lovers of great music..

I had purchased Vol. II of this magnificent collection many years ago and always meant to buy the first volume as I consider Porter one of the greatest song writers of the 20th century and Ella his best interpreter. When I saw that it had been issued as a double CD, I couldn't resist the temptation and was more than compensated by the beautiful, wistful and playful mood of the singer, which give her versions of these standards nuisances that suit Porter's sharp wit and social satire. The music is also note perfect and wraps around Ella's phrasing like honey on yogurt. Who could ask for anything more?

Just one of the words to describe Ella. I've never been able to get hold of this on MP3 before. Digital remastering is a fantastic improvement. Ella & Cole Porter are a magic combination.

this is one of the most extraordinary cd's that I have listened to in my life, the songs are already quite well-known but Ella Fitzgerald makes them unique and unforgetable, I purchased the double cd at a very good price and it arrived in time and in an excellent condition

Quite simply 'the top'. Such elegance and beauty. Her voice is hauntingly good. I don't know why im bothering to review because duly everyone already knows how superb she is. Great collection

This was another CD that replaced old cassettes. The tunes are tuneful, the lyrics clever and the performance great. II prompts a lot of memories. I didn't enjoy some of the extra tracks at the end, but it is easy not to play them.
