Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download music.
Abbey Lincoln compiled The Ultimate Dinah Washington, a 16-track selection of Washington's best-known songs that offers an excellent introduction to her Verve recordings. Although purists and collectors will have little use for this set, it suits the purposes of neophytes and curious listeners quite well. Among the highlights are "What a Diff'rence a Day Made," "Backwater Blues," "Cry Me a River," "I Wanna Be Loved," "Cold, Cold Heart," "Harbor Lights," "You Don't Know What Love Is," "I Won't Cry Anymore," "Unforgettable," and "The Bitter Earth."
I first heard this GREAT (Singer) Lady as a nine year old. And since then she has been my favorite (love Aretha, Sarah, Nancy, and of course Ella) singer of all time!! Every note she sings is perfection!!! 10 STARS!!!!!
