The oft-controversial Marlene Dietrich was one of the most charismatic, iconic female figures of the 20th Century. This collection presents the very best of her 1950s and early 60s recordings, made variously in the US, the UK, Brazil and West Germany.
It includes her celebrated duets with Rosemary Clooney, and this compilation's title track, her bleak, German language rendition of Pete Seeger's 'Where Have All The Flowers Gone', which sold a million copies in Europe.
Dietrich enjoyed two separate careers: initially as a stage and screen actress, starting in Berlin in the 1920s; then in the 1950s, when she was domiciled in the United States, she re-emerged as a successful concert and cabaret artiste, with a highly theatrical one-woman show, devised by her musical director, Burt Bacharach.
Despite her limited vocal range she possessed perfect timing, and performed songs to maximum dramatic effect.
