Marlene Dietrich had massive style. Of course, how anyone with that unmistakable German accent and blunt delivery could have pulled off such winning English-language versions of standards without an ocean-full of said style is just unimaginable. Yet here they are; urbane, witty, and even affecting renditions of such all-american classics as "Come Rain or Come Shine," " Surrey with the Fringe on Top," "Mean to Me," "Taking a Chance on Love," "Time on My Hands," and "Miss Otis Regrets." The Continental material, (no surprise) is also given knowing readings: the World War I standard "Lili Marlene" and her Edith Piaf tribute "Vie en Rose" are both Euro-flavored gems. And what Dietrich collection would be complete without a trenchant version of "Falling In Love Again," a song identified with the chanteuse since its debut in her 1930 film "The Blue Angel." A woman of the world, in short, Dietrich was nonetheless a national treasure.
