June Christy was one of the best singers to follow in the wake of Anita O'Day, and while her career wasn't always the smoothest, she maintained a very special poise and exhibited a consistent creative and artistic integrity throughout. This set collects some of her greatest ballads, including "Nobody's Heart" and "Interlude," plus the first stereo versions of songs from her classic Something Cool album, cuts from her holiday album This Time of Year, plus material that she did with her husband, Bob Cooper. It's not the whole story, of course, but at 16 well-chosen tracks on a single disc, it's the best brief survey of Christy's career currently out there.
