Songs Of Kurt Weill Sung By Felicia Sanders

Thousands Of Miles
Songs Of Kurt Weill Sung By Felicia Sanders
Arranged and Conducted by Irving Joseph
Series 2000
Time S/2007
1960

From the inside (gatefold) cover: In choosing the music of Kurt Weill for her debut in Time's Series 2000, Miss Sanders has given herself the opportunity to choose from one of the most remarkable repertoires in 20th Century music.

From Billboard - August 29, 1960: Felicia Sanders, who is a pretty good singer usually, on this album overdoes her vocal stylings so that she over powers the tender Kurt Weill tunes. The ork backing by Irving Joseph is in the same mold. The tunes include some of Weill's greatest. Recording is excellent.
