It's been a while since I put a post up. I'm back in NJ now but I have had lots on my "To Do" list since I got back from the desert. Being in the desert this winter gave me time to do some research of a few older CDs that I had missed, and I thought my blog readers might be interested in some of the gems I found. At the top of the list is a CD that was recorded by Linda Eder and released in January of 2008, "Greatest Hits". If you love great singing and great Broadway standards you must, and I mean must hear this CD. Linda's interpretations of some outstanding show-stopper Broadway tunes is nothing less than sensational! In particular, I just can't stop listening to these four songs:
1. I Am What I Am, from La Cage Aux Follies
2. Someone Like You, from Jekyll & Hyde
3. What Kind Of Fool Am I?, from Stop The World
4. Over The Rainbow
Even if you heard these outstanding performances a while ago, they have lost nothing with age. They are great performances by an outstanding artist. Linda performs all over the country, and when she gets in your neighborhood, don't miss a chance to see her in person.
