Shirley Horn – Embers and Ashes/Where Are You Going Reissue

Oh happy day!!!

Last month, Shirley Horn’s first album, “Embers and Ashes” recorded in 1960 and her “Where Are You Going” album, which was released in 1972, were reissued on a 2 LP on 1 CD reissue on Fresh Sounds Records. I have been waiting for “Embers and Ashes” to be released on CD since I first heard it a few years ago. “Where Are You Going” had been previously released on CD but “Embers and Ashes” had only been available on vinyl until now.

Both albums are definitely a great additions for anyone who loves the music of Shirley Horn.
