Sarah Vaughan - Sarah Vaughan's Golden Hits!!! (1961)

This is one of my very favorite albums. I've had this for at least twenty years - bought it when I first discovered this AM radio station in Dallas that played "big bands and great singers". Sarah Vaughan was one of the great singers whose songs they would play, and almost every song on this album was played on that radio station. How can you not fall in love with the wonderful voice that belonged to Sarah Vaughan? She was indeed, the Divine One. If you don't have any albums by Sarah Vaughan, then this is the one you need to get, since it has most of her great hits. I can't really pick a favorite song from this album because each time I listen to the next song, it becomes my favorite! They're all just wonderful - just what one would expect from the Divine Sarah Vaughan.

Hi Esther -- I'm another devotee of the Divine One. So excited about your shares of her as I haven't got them. I have one or two fairly rare vinyls of hers on my blog which you may find interesting. Have one coming up. It's a very early one (1950) with Miles Davis! Wahooo! Cheers.
