Boomkat Product Review:
"A comprehensive 2 CD collection of 40 curvaceous singing sirens of the silver screen that covers the 1940s through to 1960 like a bullet bra under a tight sweater! Once upon a time an aspiring actress who could dance, act and sing was referred to as a "triple threat" and in theory the more proficient she was at one or all of them the more likely she would garner work. This collection focuses on those very same vocal attributes and while some of these gals certainly sang better than others they all looked pretty darn good trying. This dreamy collection affords the listener a rare opportunity to share an evening with American starlets such as Marilyn Monroe, Ava Gardner, Dolores Gray and Betty Grable as well as international stars such as English Goddess Diana Dors, the Spanish flower Sarita Montiel as well as the Italian sirens both Sophia Loren and the tragic Pier Angeli and that is just a few of the fine ladies on this set. Not only does this collection feature actresses from the big screen it also showcases a few that found fame on the small screen of television such as lovely Linda Lawson and the buttery blonde Lola Albright, who both starred in very popular late 1950s American programs. Stylistically this set contains a wide array of Post War pop flavours from standard show tunes to big band ballads and small combo jazz, as well as a touch of rhythm and blues and even rock 'n' roll! Each song has been carefully digitally remastered, with such clarity it is as if you are hearing these delightful divas for the first time. This diverse 2CD set includes extensive biographical liner notes that touch on the careers of each individual starlet as well as the recording dates and personnel of each track. With rare recordings and vast liner notes, this painstakingly assembled collectors keepsake offers a full visual and audio experience that inferior downloading simply cannot supply."
