From 1969 — pulling off fine versions of contemporary rock and pop: three Dylans, a Bee Gees, Suzanne, a Byrds…
The George Harrison, Just Like A Woman detourned, O-o-h Child, Mr Bojangles… even an uptempo, conga-driven My Way.
Her RCA debut from 1967, with Eric Gale and Bernard Purdie amongst others, slow-burning through a killer set-list. RCA CD.

The two 1961 Colpix LPs, Sings Ellington! and At Newport, plus her version of Mood Indigo.
Sinner Man is here. Backed by a trio of guitar, bass and drums; with six bonus tracks, including all other known recordings from the same 1961 engagement, and (with orchestra) two studio counterparts.
