Format: Audio CD
William Clarence Eckstine (1914-1993) was an amalgam of singer, multi-talented musician and band leader during the be-bop and swing era but it was his distinctive smooth baritone with its uniquely controlled vibrato that launched him into the late Forties and early Fifties Hit Parade with appealing romantic ballads ensuring he deserved heart-throb status. After periods with the EmArcy, MGM and Roulette labels, Billy was attached to Mercury Records by the early Sixties with the launch of stereo records sufficiently well established to offer imaginative orchestrations for concept albums and the two albums featured on this Sepia release benefit greatly from such an asset whilst "Mr. B" was at the height of his vocal powers.

BROADWAY, BONGOS AND MR "B" was a 1961-released album of superbly rendered show songs effectively revised with Latin rhythms via arrangements provided by Hal Mooney and his Orchestra and it's likely the concept headed a plethora of such albums by other singers over the ensuing years. With Billy fully charged to vocal perfection, IF EVER I WOULD LEAVE YOU (CAMELOT), TONIGHT (WEST SIDE STORY), ON THE STREET WHERE YOU LIVE (MY FAIR LADY) and STRANGER IN PARADISE (KISMET) represent songs from successful Fifties musicals; leaving room to back-track the inclusion of older stage gems like FROM THIS MOMENT ON, I COULD WRITE A BOOK and THERE'S A SMALL HOTEL with the end result signifying an absolute winner.

DON'T WORRY `BOUT ME represents a 1962-released collection of singles and up-front continues the Broadway theme with TILL THERE WAS YOU (THE MUSIC MAN) and WHAT KIND OF FOOL AM I? (STOP THE WORLD - I WANT TO GET OFF) but veers off to include then-current Hollywood theme songs via well covered (LOVE IS) THE TENDER TRAP, THE EXODUS SONG and TENDER IS THE NIGHT.

Very pleased to have these 2 stereo albums plus later remakes of I Apologise & My Foolish Heart. If I have to select a favourite album then it is Broadway Bongos and Mr B. I think the Broadway songs and the rhythms & arrangements are outstanding. The sound quality across the CD is outstanding. Informative liner notes and original album covers. Price-wise a bargain.

I echo the sentiments that the sound on this cd is excellent.

I haven't listened to Billy Eckstine for years but his voice is great as are the arrangements and musicians, also a real bargain price!
