Complimenting her beautiful voice, Susannah McCorkle had a gift for uncovering forgotten about lyrics and giving new interpretations to even the most familiar phrases. McCorkle demonstrates this ability on the song, "There's No Business Like Show Business." In addition to slowing down the piece from its usual high-speed romp, she included long-lost stanzas that reveal Irving Berlin's lyrics to be touching and meaningful. Ballad Essentials has twelve impassioned versions of standards recorded from 1983-2000, reaffirming the musical stature of the great Susannah McCorkle.
