34 Great American Songs - Sandy Posey

Sandy Posey is one of the most under rated female vocalists. In this album she does the songs that brought her fame. She also does Motown songs as well or better than the original artist. Plus, she does a fantastic job switching back and forth between the country and pop hits of the 50's and 60's. This album is a gem waiting to be discovered

Re-Recorded But Well Done

Normally, I would steer clear of any CD that announces on the cover that it contains "new stereo recordings by the original artist." Generally, the original hit recording, even though it may be mono, is better, warts and all. However, these are authentic sounding recreations, leading me to think that they were recorded within a short time after the originals. Posey was an understated and direct singer, and many of these tunes were bigger hits for other artists, but she's easy on the ears, never shrill or histrionic. Unlike many of today's female vocalists, she didn't feel compelled to decorate every note or stray far from the melody in an effort to show off her vocal prowess. The stereo sound is crisp and clear. The original versions of "Then He Kissed Me" by The Crystals, and The Ronettes' "Be My Baby," had a "wall of sound" that is muddy on available reissues and which beg for a decent remastering. Until these become available, Sandy's nice, clean versions are a welcome substitute. There are also some excellent versions of tunes made famous by Connie Francis, Patsy Cline, The Shirelles and The Chiffons, with Ms. Posey holding her own in comparison. I didn't particularly like six of the songs on this collection (I could have done without the Christmas tunes and fairly uninspired gospel numbers), but I purchased the whole collection because 28 very good recordings for $9.99 is a bargain indeed!

SANDY POSEY

Unlike the glamorous and well funded promotions of present crop of singers, Sandy Posey, an Unknown in the world of music has brought the Oldies songs with rhythmical tempo that invigorates the heart, brings the closest intimations to the ears, elevating the heart to joy, more eloquent than current music where all sounds seem out of tune.
