She wasn't young, glamorous & didn't have a beautiful voice - but in 1956, a bespectacled suburban housewife rose from years of obscurity to become an overnight sensation as a consummate torch singer and nightclub performer. Widowed at a young age, she pursued singing jobs, few and far between for a 40 year old. She got a job singing at a Miami Beach club. She would beat a battered old cymbal with a wire brush, a technique that would become one of her most revered trademarks. She wore a sweater over her shoulders because of the air-conditioning and she kept her glasses on so she wouldn't trip walking to the stage. Once there, that magical husky voice and dynamic personality became mesmerizing. This set features Sherwood's first 2 albums ("Introducing Roberta Sherwood" & "Show Stoppers") with the addition of 3 bonus tracks from singles.
