Where Are You Going/The Real Thing, a single-CD reissue from Collectables, combines a pop-oriented album from Shirley Horn (Where Are You Going) with a session led by Dizzy Gillespie (The Real Thing). Although the sound and the packaging could be a little better, this still is a fine way for collectors to pick up these two records on disc. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
