Vikki Carr, the four time Grammy award winning singer who has recorded over 50 albums, and who possesses something else, something truly definitive of an enduring, true and strong personality. This can be reflected through her preference for singing in Spanish, and the appreciation this garners, the truly heartfelt inflection her music is embalmed in. Expressing an awareness and respect for her Mexican ancestry, and this makes sense when listening to someone whose every effort, every word is married to an integrity, a sense of a strong and implacable identity, defiant of the transitory nature of musical fads. Indeed, Express News has reported ''Frank Sinatra said Carr “possesses my kind of voice.” Dean Martin said she was “the best girl singer in the business.” Bing Crosby called her one of his three favorite all-time singers. And while on a Las Vegas stage, Elvis Presley announced she was a favorite, too, because “she sang from the gut.”''When considering her legacy, the indomitable ascension and consistency of her success, the nature of her talent - perhaps one of the most noble and ultimately rewarding achievements she can claim is, to never have lost sight of the humility and the devastating power of music. In her own words “Music is universal and can touch everybody on every level — funny, happy, loving and sad,” she said. “And hopefully in my past 57 years of performing, I’ve done that.”
Vinyl is fine, no scratches and little dust. Box is lovely.
