Recordings Section 16 : Others 10 (1 Fields track) (Item 5 of 5)

This Thing Called Love: Elisabeth Welch

One of my favourite recordings by an octogenarian vocalist!

Elisabeth Welch's voice may be quavery, but long notes held no fear for her, and she draws you into each song. A particular favourite is her version of the Heyman/Green song Hello, My Lover, Goodbye.

She includes the verse on the single Fields track, Porgy.

Fields tracks: Porgy (Blues For Porgy)
