always loved this song and never knew it was from a show. She's fantastic!
:-) So glad this was of use to you. Thanks for keeping Miss G. in peoples' consciousness! How great that she still sounded good at this stage.
Apparently she was in Gypsy just the year before. Ten years later: Follies!
Heaven. When was the last time you saw a singer who had to back away from the mic before starting a song?
According to her Wikipedia page, her voice was once described as "a freight-train slathered in honey"!
Effortless delivery - she was indeed the Mistress of her art. It terrifies me, as Muscato alludes to, the dearth of truly good (un-amplified) singers around these days. There's certainly no-one coming up who can do what she, or The Merm, or Barbara Cook, or Pearl Bailey, or any of the "classic" theatrical troupers, could do. Jx
