Originally released in 1996 as a genuine 24 Kt Gold CD, Carol Kidd’s “Gold” remains the legendary singer’s most sought after album. To celebrate its twentieth anniversary Linn has reissued it as a 45rpm Supercut, 180g vinyl; enjoy everything you already love about LPs but more: better dynamics, less noise and a cleaner Hi-Fi response.
Encompassing songs from across her early career, “Gold” includes tracks from “All My Tomorrows”, “Crazy For Gershwin”, “I’m Glad We Met” and her career-launching eponymous debut album. Described as »one of the best jazz singers in the world« by The Times, Carol Kidd has a flawless sense of timing and her impeccable phrasing is arguably her greatest gift. Renowned for her unforgettable ability to breathe fresh life into any jazz standard, Carol Kidd is a life-long romantic and ballads like “My Funny Valentine” and “Angel Eyes” remain favourites.
No Carol Kidd anthology would be complete without her signature song, “When I Dream”, made famous by the Korean movie “Shiri”; it remained in the Asian Music Box charts for a spectacular 13 weeks.
