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

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

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

Eartha Kitt's entry in RCA/BMG Heritage's Platinum & Gold series presents songs from Kitt's five albums and numerous singles she recorded for RCA between 1952 and 1957. Three songs, including the sultry "I Want to Be Evil," are taken from 1953's That Bad Eartha, three are from 1955's Down to Eartha, including the quite nasty "The Heel," one is from 1956's Thursday's Child, three are from her 1957 album of W.C. Handy tunes called St. Louis Blues, and there are two singles: "Dinner for One, James" and the incredibly cool "Santa Baby," which hit number four on the charts and is a contender for the best Christmas song ever. Kitt doesn't possess one of the world's best voices, but what she does have is style -- miles and miles of ferocity and sly style. There are other collections of her work from this period that are more comprehensive (1999's Purr-Fect: Greatest Hits) or only slightly different (RCA's Heavenly Eartha from 2002, which shares many tracks), and there is even a two-fer of That Bad Eartha and Down to Eartha. Any of them would be a worthwhile addition to your collection. © Tim Sendra /TiVo
