Overview

These 26 sides were recorded for the EmArcy label, but this is not a straight reissue of the LP that shared the same title. Many of those tracks are here but not all, curiously. Nonetheless, Dinah sings up a storm on her vast repertoire of downhearted or spiteful numbers written by a variety of people, including collaborators Mundell Lowe and John Henry, with five by legendary author/critic Leonard Feather. Big bands back Dinah and allow her to cut loose with the distinctive voice that set her apart from all the others. There are no throwaways or soupy filler -- just solid blues. It's recommended, especially if found at a budget price.
