A review of Dinah Washington's career
This compilation of 29 songs does not follow a chronological order, but it outlines the great career of the artist, who died far too early. It is impressive how her voice has developed over the course of two decades, from the jazz-soaked Rhythm & Blues of the late 1940s and early 1950s, when Dinah Washington was just one singer among many, to the great monumental pop arrangements and jazz standards of the later years with an enormous flexibility of her voice!

A Rockin' Good Way
Dinah Washington's greatest hits are all there, including the title song she sang with Brook Benton. Many will also remember A Rockin' Good Way in the cover version of Shakin' Stevens with Bonnie Tyler from the 1980s, as well as Mad About The Boy from Levi's Jeans TV commercial around the same time. Not only nostalgics and collectors will get their money's worth here, because if you're into powerful female voices, Dinah Washington is always the right choice - and young girls who dream of a singing career should also listen to this CD!
Included is a 36-page booklet in color with a Dinah Washington biography, written by the great Chicago music journalist Bill Dahl, and many photographs and illustrations, some of them rare!
