Overview

20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Maureen McGovern

Mercury's 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Maureen McGovern bypasses most of the artist's cabaret and classical offerings, focusing instead on the breezy pop and folk that she perfected during the mid-'70s. Known primarily for her 1973 Oscar-winning smash hit ("The Morning After") from The Poseidon Adventure, McGovern released a number of other singles during the period that failed to chart as high -- a number one debut is a tough act to follow. McGovern went on to a successful career on and off Broadway, even securing a performance at Carnegie Hall, but while standout tracks like "Nice to Be Around," "We May Never Love This Way Again," and an infectious version of Randy Edelman's "Everybody Wants to Call You Sweetheart" dutifully showcase the singer's four-octave range, they remain firmly rooted in the pop idiom.

Maureen McGovern fans have been heard! This is the first US Release of Maureen's 20th Century sessions from 1972-1975. Though only 12 tracks from three albums and a few post-album single tracks, this new collection is a gem indeed. Being a vinylist that wants to convert as much to CD as possible, I played with the computer putting my Maureen tracks to CD and cleaning them up. Trust me, no comparison. This remaster job is superb! The highs and vocals are crystal clear, and there are some string passages I've never heard so beautifully before. On vinyl, they didn't stand out. Maureen's premiere years as a recording artist include the infamous disaster film themes of "The Morning After" from The Poseidon Adventure, and "We May Never Love Like This Again" from The Towering Inferno; both Oscar winners. Other standout tracks include the two single tracks from 1974 and 1975, respectively "Even Better Than I Know Myself" and "Love Songs Are Getting Harder To Sing", both making their Maureen album debut in the US since their initial release. "Even Better..." was only issued on album in Japan, with the album intended for "Love Songs..." still remaining unreleased. I'm so glad that Universal Chronicles took the time to look into Maureen's beginnings, and the fans can only hope that there is more to follow.
