On this smoky 16-track compilation of classics, legendary temptress Eartha Kitt tells it like it is on "Je Cherche Un Homme (I Want a Man)," and W.C. Handy's "St. Louis Blues," Cole Porter's "My Heart Belongs to Daddy" and "Let's Do It," and a dozen others. © Roundup Newsletter /TiVo

Booklet
Before she was Eartha Kitt, Eartha Mae was a young mixed-race woman, down on her luck and feeling rejected and unloved. In fact, she was the exact opposite of the self-confident Eartha Kitt, a true American star of the 50s. A dancer at 16, known across all the stages of Europe by 20, a disco singer at the end of the seventies and an international crooner until she breathed her last breath in 2008, Eartha Kitt was defined most of all by her voice, which was so unique that it mesmerised audiences from the very first note. This compilation of 50s hits offers a sampler of her highly unusual flavours, especially on the legendary C'est Si Bon, Santa Baby and I Want to Be Evil which brought her to the top of the charts. The aptly named second disc, Eartha for Dancing, offers more in the way of vocal pyrotechnics. Against a groovy, slightly lounge-y jazz backdrop, she slides nimbly between rhythms. Mambo, charleston, blues, jazz, she masters all styles: a true entertainer. © Max Dembo / Qobuz

Jazz - Released December 1, 1953 | RCA - Legacy

Like its predecessor, RCA Victor Presents Eartha Kitt, Eartha Kitt's second album, That Bad Eartha, also released in 1953, became a Top Five hit in a year when the curiosity about this exotic creature seemed to be limitless. Although she was actually from South Carolina by way of Harlem, Kitt came across as an international chanteuse, which spending a few years in Paris, among other places, will do for you. Her recording of "C'est Si Bon (It's So Good)," included here, had reached the Top Ten in August, preceded by a minor chart entry in "Uska Dara -- A Turkish Tale" and followed by another, "I Want to Be Evil." Both were also included. In addition to French and Turkish, Kitt sang in Spanish and Swahili, which was more than enough to justify her image as a classy import. Another part of that image was her somewhat predatory sex appeal, which was explored fully in "I Want to Be Evil" and two Cole Porter favorites, "Let's Do It" and "My Heart Belongs to Daddy." Of course, there was sleight-of-hand going on there, too, but Kitt didn't suffer from having a wholly contrived persona, because she let her listeners in on the joke. It wasn't accidental that the title of the album had quotes around it. And in the same way, her relatively limited vocal range didn't matter because she acted her way through her performances as if they were short plays. The only problem, in fact, was that Kitt defined herself so well she was ultimately one-dimensional. It was not surprising when the hits dried up within a year, since she came across on records as a novelty act; but she had developed an act she could keep playing for the rest of her life. And that's exactly what she did. © William Ruhlmann /TiVo

Jazz - Released March 5, 2002 | RCA Bluebird

Heavenly Eartha is part of RCA's mid-line series Bluebird's Best. This is a solid collection of original hits that vocalist and sex symbol Eartha Kitt recorded for Bluebird in the '50s. Many of her well-known classics have been assembled here, including "I Want to Be Evil," "Long Gone (From Bowlin' Green)," "Beale Street Blues," and "Santa Baby." Heavenly Eartha is a perfect introduction to the glamorous and occasionally risqué persona of Eartha Kitt. © Al Campbell /TiVo
