At 18, after watching the movie Ghost World, I decided to start a record collection. I now own hundreds of records and own over 900 cds.

This is the best cd of Ella Logan. Sepia Records also put out a collection but this contains her best material. I was introduced as a child to Ella from her appearance in the Broadway version of "Finian's Rainbow". Her singing was so magical there. She was a Scottish singer who sang jazz before Finian's Rainbow. That material is featured here. The music's fun. My favorite songs are I wish I was twins, Doin' the Uptown London and Dinah. The cd from Retrieval Recordings is now digital on Amazon for a reasonable price. Interesting note she was jazz singer Annie Ross' aunt. She also sings a number here "Two sleepy people" with Hoagy Carmichael.
