Eartha Kitt

After seeing Eartha Kitt perform with the Phoenix Symphony, I had to find an album that contained most of what I'd heard during her performance, and then some. The Very Best of Eartha Kitt is a two-disc, 35-song collection of her best-known works, from "I Want to Be Evil" and "Santa Baby" to "Mink Shmink" and "Uska Dara." Favorites like "Let's Do It" and "April in Portugal" are here as well, along with "This Year's Santa Baby" and a host of other tunes to which she lends her distinctive voice.
