Jo Stafford Sings Robert Burns Lyrics with Sympathy and Understanding
2014年12月3日 - (Amazon.com)
Former Sirius/Xm disk jockey, Jonathan Schwarts, has characterized Jo Stafford as one of the greatest singers of the 20th century. This CD strongly demonstrates why Schwarts was right. Stafford demonstrates her affinity for these Robert Burns lyrics, ranging from the popular "Auld Lang Zyne" to the lesser-known "of All the Airts". As a retired English teacher I had some reservations about the modernizing of "airts" to "winds", but the appeal to a larger audience justifies the change. If you like Robert Burns and if you like Jo Stafford, you will find this collection well worth its moderate cost.
The beauty of Jo Stafford
2005年6月27日 - (Amazon.com)
Jo Stafford's incredible voice is the main focus of this beautiful CD of traditional Scottish songs. Mrs. Stafford is primarily accompanied by strings, but on a number of songs a single harp or oboe compliment the arrangements. Though in my book, Mrs. Stafford is one of the all time greatest vocalist, I am not a huge fan of her big band numbers. Fortunately, on this CD she doesn't have to fight to be heard. Her voice is so clear, so haunting, and just so perfect it is almost beyond belief. If you think you have herd the song "Auld Lang Syne" once to many times, wait until you hear Mrs. Stafford sing it. That one song is worth the price of the CD alone. In a day and age when non and over-singers are praised, Jo easily stands above them all.

This a very good album, by a wonderful singer. I love it! Quite a different take, in my opinion, on these old Scottish tunes, and it works.

This is truly a "breathtaking" performance as the previous reviewer so aptly put it. These are are songs penned by the great poet Robert Burns with melodies composed by A. Rinker.My favorites are "Flow Gently Sweet Afton and "Annie Laurie with the original melody and the lyrics by Burns and "My Love is like a Red Red Rose" with a new Melody by A. Brinker and Lyrics by Burns. Definitely Worth buying and listening again and again

What is not to like. Jo Stafford has a magnificent voice and Robert Burns is one of my favorite poets.
