An Amazon reviewer said: 

“This excellent collection comes from the period 1959 to 1966, when she was signed to EMI’s (then) Columbia label, and is made up of 20 singles, A and B sides, 15 of which charted, plus seven tracks off two EPs, two from an LP of the musical Showboat, and one movie end-credit song, “My Liquidator”, which is an alternative version of the preceding song which she sings at the start of the film. They are all in their original glorious mono, undoctored, and sound superb.”
