This CD was recorded during the same time as Miss Ross was completing the soundtrack to her film debut "Lady Sings the Blues". Somehow, it got locked away for over thirty years. It probably would not have been well-received in 1972, but time has aged these tracks like a fine vintage wine. These sixteen tunes exhibit a vitality and a bold fearlessness that was sometimes lacking on Miss Ross's subsequent recordings. She sounds relaxed, youthful, and in full control of her talent. Standout tracks include "What a Difference a Day Makes", "Had You Been Around", "Smile" and "Solitude", but the entire CD works well as a coherent whole. I am so glad that Motown dusted off those old master tapes and released this gem. Don't miss it!
