For two weeks in a row, your
writers have missed the perfect chance to review a great new CD.
Both Don Heckman ("Versatile Vocalists Who Shouldn't Be
Overlooked," Feb. 24) and Don Shirley ("Sometimes, the Good
Songs Are Preserved," March 3) should have got their hands on
Susan Egan's new CD. Titled "So Far . . ." and packed with
show tunes, Egan's premiere solo disc is breathtaking.
Notwithstanding that I have no connection to Egan, and even though the
official release date was March 5, I was able to get an advance copy
of the album via her Web site. The disc has not left my player yet.
With songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber, Stephen Sondheim and Rodgers
& Hammerstein, this collection is a must for theater lovers.
Egan's voice is flawless.
