Seriously Now ,

A Versatile Singer and Star

Seriously now, anybody that accuses Buckley of half-singing on this album obviously has not taken the time to listen to it. Just listen to the samples for any of the tracks on this album and you'll here Buckley's vibratto working over-time. She wraps her powerful voice over tried and true songs like Fire and Rain, Old Friend (while at the same time reinventing them) and then turns to Broadway by giving refreshing performances of Not a Day Goes By and Stars and the Moon. This is not an average performer. And, she is not for everybody. If you like Elaine Paige, Patty Lupone, Edith Piaf and the like, you will love Buckley. If not, go buy Britney Spears.

A real disappointment

I'm a big Betty Buckley fan, but I prefer her with an orchestra as backup. Whenever she performs with this small band (piano/bass/trap set) she tries to make everything sound like an intimate little jazz standard, and she falls into the mode of half-singing, half-talking, peppered with the occasional whispered lyric... and that's when she becomes a charicature. I would skip this album and pick something where she's performing with an orchestra.

Exquisite!!!

One of the finest voices ever. Her live performance captured magnificently. This recording was Grammy nominated and well deserved. This recording is a must for any collection.
