Often a friend will come over asking if I have any Beatle recordings but I tell them no but I have Sarah Vaughan doing famous Beatle songs. Sarah put out a review of this session in 77 and it was 81 until Atlantic issued it. I looked for this recording for years & heard of bootlegs of it until I found it in 81. Check the copywrite date on the CD. Sarah had been messed over by many recording companies.An artist sounds commercially viable the way Atlantic wants one to sound or one does not sound at all or is very short lived on Atlantic. The only recording of Sarah on Atlantic. Sarah did less that a hand full of rhymic recordings such as ''The Explosive Side of SV'', ''Viva Vaughan'', & ''Send In The Clowns''on Mainstream. Listen to Sarah's recording of ''Eleanor Rigby'' it's better than the Beatles & also ''And I Love Her'' & ''Something'' all done in Jazz/Latin rhytms/rock n roll/R&B/performed all at one time arranged by Marty & David Paich.Atlantic & the Paich brothers turned this standard jazz singer into something like Sade. Atlantic let Sarah sing her beautiful stantard jazz material in ballads & blues hitting those Soprano notes as she so Divinely did; just listen to ''Something'',''Here There & Everywhere''& ''The Long & Winding Road''. Sarah said that she was listening to the Beatles on the radio one day and said ''I'm going to do it''. And why not the most talented and famous jazz singer in the world performing the most well written largest selling beautiful music is not a problem and nothing wrong with that at all.When you get such a talented musician/performer/legend Sarah Vaughan doing impeccable Beatles materials like this who can loose?

Sarah was already starting to lose her beautiful voice in the early 1970's. This was recorded after that, and her voice had already gotten deeper because of her age. Her singing doesn't do anything for me on these songs. When I hear that young voice of hers on songs from such CDs as "20th Century Masters" and "Sarah Vaughan with Clifford Brown," I am amazed. Play a sample on your computer from any song on this CD, then play a sample from Sarah's "20th Century Masters" CD and you'll hear a difference between night and day.
