All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
In many ways Lena Horne was born out of time, and although she enjoyed a long, successful, and dignified career, most of that career was served under the subtle (and often not so subtle) racism in the stage, movie, and recording arenas of the 1940s and 1950s -- her stunning good looks and even more stunning vocal abilities would have made her a media superstar had she come along even a decade later than she did. As is, she left behind a tremendous legacy of recordings and stage and movie appearances, and her live shows were wonderfully intimate and stirring.

In many ways Lena Horne was born out of time, and although she enjoyed a long, successful, and dignified career, most of that career was served under the subtle (and often not so subtle) racism in the stage, movie, and recording arenas of the 1940s and 1950s -- her stunning good looks and even more stunning vocal abilities would have made her a media superstar had she come along even a decade later than she did. As is, she left behind a tremendous legacy of recordings and stage and movie appearances, and her live shows were wonderfully intimate and stirring. This set collects some rare early studio tracks and several on-air radio show airchecks from the early '40s, most of them featuring Horne in front of a full orchestra. Among the gems here are a delightfully woozy-sounding "Ill Wind," an appropriately haunting version of "Haunted Town," airchecks for "Dat Ole Debbil Consequence" and "Stormy Weather," and a somber but resilient take on "Nobody Knows the Troubles I've Seen," all of which are signature Lena Horne. Her death in May of 2010 took a brilliant star from the sky.
