|Carol Kidd Gold Limited Gatefold 180gram Vinyl 2LP Set
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.
