This is a great sampler! Easy to recommend for the music and the consistently fine sound. Sound 10/10 Music 10/10 Michael Fremer www.analogplanet,com
Gray has few peers and the two-LP set is as sharp a calling card as exists for experiencing how good older recordings can be made to sound when the care and skill of an exceptional mastering engineer is at the helm. If this album doesn’t make your stereo sound fantastic, don’t blame it on the LPs! Sound 5/5 Vinylreviews

I’ve been doing this (cherry picking great recordings for reissue) for a long time, and I think I’ve got a good idea of what audiophiles like to hear. This is all of your female vocal demo cuts in one place.” r
Female vocalists have forever been celebrated by audiophiles and music lovers alike. Whether the delivery is delicate or bombastic, a great female vocal well-recorded is just so sensuous. It’s the genre that most often typifies the potential of hi-fi and what it can do to engage our emotions. It’s no wonder the hallways of any hi-fi show will be resonating with the sounds of sparsely-arranged recordings of great women singers. It’s the genre that best shows off the systems that manufacturers and dealers are trying to sell.
Now, you can have all of those best demo tracks on one record. Show stoppers by Julie London, Diana Krall, Rickie Lee Jones, Nina Simone, Janis Ian, Phoebe Snow, Jennifer Warnes, Dusty Springfield, Shelby Lynne and many more. Every single track is an audiophile demo classic. Drop the needle and drop your friend’s jaw!
Michael Fremer, of AnalogPlanet.com and Stereophile Magazine, walks you through each track and its historic place with very through and entertaining liners. Plating and pressing was done at Quality Record Pressings.
Ever have that moment where you want to really light up your system – either for a late-night session by yourself or for when you’ve got company – and you don’t want to keep changing records to keep the hit parade going? This record ends that issue. You’ve only got to make one selection.
