Golden Favorites - Caterina Valente
Decca DL 74504
Tracks from this set are available from a variety of online digital vendors so I will not be posting a sample.
Creative arrangements back Valente's fresh and energetic approach to these standards.
From the back cover: The orchestra of Werner Muller, Kurt Edelhagen and Sy Oliver contribute to the brilliance of the performance – so right in tempo and taste for every national background.
From Billboard - August 6, 1964: Here's a line-up of songs tailor-made for the exciting talents of Caterina Valente. An international favorite herself, Miss Valente's selections in this album prove the reason for her worldwide popularity… versatile talent.
Kiss Of Fire
Mack The Knife
The Breeze And I
C'est Si Bon
