Album Review

The Very Best of Dinah Shore replaces RCA's previous and now-deleted collection Love and Kisses, Dinah with a substantially different track listing. The latter compiled an odd assortment of mostly non-hits while The Very Best of Dinah Shore collects 14 Top Ten hits from the early and mid-'40s.
