Description

Classic recordings hand-picked from the career of one of our greatest ever stars.

After seven decades at the very top of the entertainment world, what better time could there be to celebrate the unique talents of Britain's very own Julie Andrews. Packed with sparkling recordings from Julie's spectacular career, this exclusive new collection recalls how this one-time radio child star took the theatre world by storm as Eliza in the biggest show of the post-war years, 'My Fair Lady', and went on to conquer Hollywood in a way no UK star has done before or since.

It's the amazing crystal clear four-octave Andrews voice that takes centre stage in these beautiful interpretations of some of the finest film and theatre songs ever written, from Rodgers and Hammerstein showstoppers like It Might As Well Be Spring to those timeless 'My Fair Lady' tunes that became Julie's calling card - Wouldn't It Be Loverly, I Could Have Danced All Night, The Rain In Spain and more. Remembered, too, is her role in the film 'High Tor' with Bing Crosby (Sad Is The Life Of A Sailor's Wife and Once Upon A Long Ago) and her Broadway debut performance in 'The Boy Friend', plus the pick of Cole Porter, George Gershwin and Noel Coward as you have never heard them before!

Included too are the songs that are among Julie's own personal favourites. Beautiful ballads and charming evergreens: The Lass With A Delicate Air, Where'er You Walk, The Floral Dance, To A Wild Rose and The Kerry Dance each suit Julie's voice like a glove. And we have a real rarity too: 'Songs Of Sense And Nonsense' has Julie in sparkling form with the singer Martyn Green. It's a delightful selection of children's songs that makes the collection worth having for this alone!

Julie Andrews is true show business royalty - and now comes the chance to enjoy the full breadth of her singing talents in a treasury full of familiar favourites and hard-to-find gems. In a word - loverly!
