THE VAULTS / CD REISSUES : June Christy, "Spotlight on . . . June Christy," Capitol. *** 1/2.

A great pop-jazz singer who's never really received the acclaim she deserves. That voice--cool, sultry and with a touch of gravel--was considered too slight by some. But she sure sounds full-bodied in this package of gems, mostly from the late '50s, including "How High the Moon," "Midnight Sun" and one of the best versions of "Bewitched" ever recorded.

Albums are rated on a scale of one star (poor), two stars (fair), three stars (good) and four stars (e x cellent).
