Sampling highlights from musicals including Funny Girl, Man of La Mancha, La Cage aux Folles, and others, the disc is a fitting showcase for Eder's talents and a welcome addition to any collection of contemporary showtunes.

    I Also Recommend:

    Linda Eder is an enduring talent . . . .

    I first heard Linda Eder on a daytime show that was showcasing Broadway talent, and fell in love with her version of SOMEONE LIKE YOU from Jekyll & Hyde. I wanted a CD (earlier version was cassette) with her work on it, but was not at all prepared for the Fitch Brothers Radio Edit version (I somehow didn't notice this at time of purchase) of SOMETHING TO BELIEVE IN; this is like a disco version of the slower romantic love song. Since these two aforementioned songs were the ones I knew best from Ms. Eder, you might imagine my disappointment at NOT getting what I had expected.

    It is impossible to not love Linda Eder

    "I Want More" Linda Eder -- She is not only incredibly talented (just listen to "What Kind of Fool Am I") but she admits she loves to tackle songs that are normally only sung by men ("Man of La Mancha") and Linda blows that rendition out of the park! This CD really showcases her range and versatility....if you have not "discovered Linda Eder" you are missing out on the best female vocalist around.

    This is a great selection of Linda Eder's most requested songs from her Broadway and concert performances. The power, range and beauty of her voice shine through in each of these show-stopping numbers. What an incredible talent! I am also Looking forward to her new album to be released in Jan 08 with new original songs.
