This double album is definitive Babs. The voice is beautiful, and the selections inspired and plentiful. The banter that takes place between the songs is concise and fun, the audience reactions are inspiring in their appreciation of this awesome one of kind talent. The background orchestra is lush and full bodied, the perfect accompaniment. Except for a few obscure songs of arguable value near the end , and IMO,a less than satisfying Somewhere, this collection is exceptional. Standout performances include classics such as Happy Days are Here Again, People, He Touched Me, and Evergreen... tunes that span the decades! We cannot wait for a repeat performance soon!
