‘Smoke Gets In Your Eyes’ resurfaces in a brand-new compilation recorded by an opera star: Lesley Garrett – Soprano in Hollywood. Garrett arrives on the back of a big, smooth orchestral sound, and her rendering – pitched significantly higher than Dunne’s – is stagily operatic.
As is her ‘Lover’, her ‘Danny Boy’ and her Gershwin medley: each number is marked by impeccable tone and diction, but seems to have no heart.
