I had no intention of reviewing this particular album/CD by Gloria Lynne. I had included it on one of my 'Listmania' compilations as a classic buy (grab it while you can!) and then read the totally negative review from Robert Hanks.
Please...trust me...this Gloria Lynne album by a jazz artist of UNQUESTIONABLE credentials, is a masterpiece. Period. Nothin' more to be said.....but, OK, I'll say more.
First of all, COLLECTABLE CD's are a god-send, helping us to preserve the Best of the Best from past musical history. They do excellent work, very professional, totally First Class. If Bobby Hanks ended up with a 'scratchy CD' he must have run his nails over it when he tore it out of the box & into the player!
And as for Gloria Lynne's interpretations of some classic ballads, well, just grab a little Tia Maria, curl up in front of a fireplace, and listen to this sultry songstress deliver...Full Force..."I Wish You Love," "The Folks Who Live On The Hill," "I'm Glad There Is You," "I Should Care," "Try A Little Tenderness"....I could name each & every song on the CD, but you get the idea. They are all Perfect. They are all Glamorous, Glorious Gloria at her Grandest....and it doesn't get better than that!
