Mercury's 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Maureen McGovern bypasses most of the artist's cabaret and classical offerings, focusing instead on the breezy pop and folk that she perfected during the mid-'70s. Known primarily for her 1973 Oscar-winning smash hit ("The Morning After") from The Poseidon Adventure, McGovern released a number of other singles during the period that failed to chart as high — a number one debut is a tough act to follow. McGovern went on to a successful career on and off Broadway, even securing a performance at Carnegie Hall, but while standout tracks like "Nice to Be Around," "We May Never Love This Way Again," and an infectious version of Randy Edelman's "Everybody Wants to Call You Sweetheart" dutifully showcase the singer's four-octave range, they remain firmly rooted in the pop idiom.
Beyond 'the Morning After'
This voice is a legend. Every note MM has ever sung has been beautifully, fully realized. Dive deeper - this is the chop at the top...
The Greatest Voice
I think Maureen McGovern has one of the best voices of the generation. Flawless. For fans discovering her from her Posiedon fame, they will be glad to know that all these tracks are in the same 70's pop style. I love all these tracks. They are really fabulous. Standouts include: -The Morning After -We May Never Love Like This Again -Everybody Wants To Call You Sweet Heart [my personal favorite] -Love Songs Are Getting Harder To Sing
I Love Poseidon!
The best song on the CD is The Morning after everyone just luvs Poseidon!
