Just when you thought she couldn’t get more arch, Griffith recasts her ”greatest hits” against the muted bombast of a world-famous ensemble. But the real trouble is Griffith’s still-evolving delivery. While her vocals seem more full-bodied and strident than before, her enunciation (”yare” for ”year”) is becoming as mannered as Eartha Kitt’s. What ever happened to plain ol’ folkabilly? C+
