Ultimate Collection

The latest addition to Hip-O's "Ultimate Collection" series focuses on the inimitable Liza Minnelli.

The latest addition to Hip-O's "Ultimate Collection" series focuses on the inimitable Liza Minnelli. Covering a 25-year period, the festive set opens with the Simon Rady-produced "Try to Remember" (from 1964's Liza! Liza!) and closes with the Pet Shop Boys/Julian Mendelsohn-produced "Losing My Mind" (from 1989's Results). In between are such Liza nuggets as "Cabaret" (from Liza Live at the Olympia in Paris), "Maybe This Time," "Say Liza (Liza With a Z)," and naturally, "Theme From New York, New York." This collection is complemented by a 16-page booklet, with lovely liner notes penned by Minnelli/Judy Garland historian Scott Schechter and a few divine photo moments.—MP
