Format: Audio CD
Can you imagine what it must have been like to be a young singer arriving on the scene in America in the late-fifties? Well established were Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Mel Torme, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Peggy Lee, Carmen McRae, Doris Day and the list goes on and on and on. Yet Eydie Gorme, at 23, took them on at their own game, the swinging standard, produced a hit debut LP and was FANTASTIC! My Dad bought this album in '57 and I grew up with it. But my love of it is not nostalgia. Word had got around in the US of A, everyone was talking about her, she was played on all the radio stations and was an instant hit in an era when you had to be very, very good. Her tone is reminiscent of Doris Day but she swings like Ella and interprets like Sassie. She phrases immaculately, she's pitch perfect and she rings like a bell. If you love the greats I've mentioned above you've got to give this lady a listen. You won't be disappointed. She made few albums before she teamed up as a duo with husband Steve Lawrence and you have two of them here - 'Eydie Gorme', her first album and a masterpiece plus 'Love is a Season' which has some cracking tracks on it. There's variety - swingers, belters and ballads, all superbly interpreted. Costa's arrangements compare well even with those on Frank's albums and the orchestra, like most in the 50s, is superb. The restoration and remastering is clean and rich - sounds like it was all done yesterday. I'm glad Eydie found love but sad that her solo career was cut short. Had it not been I believe she would have been up there with the greats. Her later output with Lawrence was slight by comparison and the latin material not to everyone's taste. But savour what is here. It's a rare old treat.

This 2CD issue contains Eydie Gorme's best known and popular albums as a soloist. The sound from the digitally remastered tracks is excellent. Her break into national recognition came from appearances on the 'Steve Allen Show' leading to the 1956 recording (done in 3 x 3 hour sessions) and 1957 release of 'Eydie Gorme'. Instantly bracketed along established stars such as Doris Day, Jo Stafford and Peggy Lee, Eydie had perfect intonation, great relaxed phrasing and could swing with the best.

Her love for Sinatra is reflected in her personal choice of 'Day By Day' and 'Saturday Night Is The Loneliest Night Of The Week'. Her interpretations of Gershwins' 'How Long Has This Been Going On' and Berlin's 'Be Careful It's My Heart' demonstrate her individuality. The lesser known 'This Is No Laughing Matter' and 'Guess Who I Saw Today' are ballads that tug at the heart-strings. All backed by Don Costa's magnificent orchestra. My mother's 1957 vinyl was played 'to death' when I was a child (still have it).

'Love Is A Season' was recorded in 1958 with a four seasons' theme. The tracks show the 25 year old singer in outstanding form, again with the Don Costa Orchestra. 'Easter Parade' gets a different treatment, 'September Song', 'Tis Autumn' and 'I'll Remember April' stand out. Eydie (cousin of Neil Sedaka) married singer Steve Lawrence in December 1957 to form a successful duo. He obviously does not appear on this marvellous set by a richly talented songstress who deserves more widespread recognition. Still available for a small price. Suggest giving it a listen, you won't be disappointed.

Surely the purest voice of her time, besides her musicality there's a clarity of diction missing in some of her contemporaries.
All that and control, swing timing and immaculate occasional vibrato.

My dad (72 yrs) asked me if I could find him an album by Eydie Gorme. Instantly tracked her down via Amazon and bought this and another one. Haven't handed it over to Dad yet as I keep playing the CD myself. I had not heard of this lady before but she is a must for anyone's collection that include: Ella, Sarah Vaughan and Frank Sinatra. She is absolutely wonderful.

Wanted one thing, got something else just as good ....... 29 July 2013
By MovieMusic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Eydie had one of the most beautiful and amazing voices ever heard, which meant success was always assured no matter what she did with it. But despite an ability to sing softly and delicately, she almost always over-amped it. She regularly used her voice like a foghorn in all styles of music, even delicate ballads. "Blame It On The Bossa Nova" suited her perfectly.

I bought this for "Guess Who I Saw Today", but her version is just too indelicate for me, although she almost pulls off the ending, despite being deluged by a fairly crass string arrangement. Chante Moore does a good version of this song, but can't resist a repetitious R&B style ending that completely destroys all her good work up to that point.

This song is waiting for the definitive version. Though Eydie Gorme, Chante Mooore, Nancy Wilson, Eartha Kitt, Carmen McRae and others have tried and failed to one degree or another, there is just one person on my wishlist for this song - Deborah Cox. Hear what she does with "Look To The Raindbow" on her album "Destination Moon".

Though I didn't get what I wanted from this album, there is one magnificent consolation prize. On "How Long Has This Been Going On" (by George and Ira Gershwin) she holds her natural instincts back just enough to render a spine-chillingly enthralling version. Samples at allmusic.
