Comments

a cut-out hole on the bottom-right side of the cover.

Inside The Groove

“The Fascinating” Ernestine's 3rd album on Mercury.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

In her 3rd album recorded maybe in 1959, Ernestine sings so smoothly, emotionally, and greatly. Yes it's just “like a great diamond” as the liner note says.

Again, all backing-up musicians did the finest job.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

9 out of 10
