5.0 out of 5 stars Another Sepia gem... 12 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD
CDs of Dorothy Provine are not that easy to find and the combination of her and Joe Fingers Carr is a winning one. Dorothy Provine has a unique voice and fans will love this album. The LP recorded for Warner Bros and released in 1962 on WS1466 is here coupled with another Fingers album "And His Swingin' String Band",1958 originally on Capitol ST-1217. There are also 4 bonus tracks and so you are getting a great deal for your money. The sound transfers are excellent and the artwork all up to the usual excellent Sepia standard.

5.0 out of 5 stars NO KIDDING HERE! 30 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
2 Albums on 1 CD. One by the delightful Dorothy Provine and the other one by Joe "Fingers" Carr, although he is the supporting act with Dorothy Provine. There are also 4 bonus tracks, 2 by each of the aforementioned artists.

The first part is absolutely non-stop. 12 actual tracks but 24 songs. Mostly uptempo happy-go-lucky with the odd sentimental one thrown in. DP handles them all to perfection.

The second album by Joe "Fingers" Carr and his Swingin` String Band, consists solely of instrumentals with the piano dominant on most of the tracks. On a few of the tracks, he sounds a bit like Winifred Atwell or Billy Vaughn and his Orchestra, although perhaps not so polished. Nevertheless, a worthwhile companion to the great DP.

The final 4 bonus tracks, 2 by DP and 2 by JC. A good companion CD to "The Roaring 20`s", which was released a couple of years ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really entertaining c/d indeed!! 4 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Really surprised when Oh you Kid by Dorothy Provine and Joe Fingers Carr turned up on C/D. I have the original L/p purchased in 1962 but sadly a bit scratched.. Always collected oddites in popular music and never been too contented with 'Chart' material.. Also a rarety these days to hear old music hall/vaudiville numbers.. Great vocals provided by Miss Provine I love her distinctive voice and Excellent Piano work provided by Joe Fingers Carr.. With the addition of Joe & his swing band Lp too.. A gem in my c/d collection true entertainment well worth the money!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dorothy by Gaslight 9 Oct 2013
By Hernando DeSoto - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Dorothy Provine, having pretty much covered the 1920's on her two Warner Brother soundtrack albums from THE ROARING 20's, and her TV show having come to an end, recorded this salute to the Gaslit Era for her third and final album for Warner Brothers records.

Dorothy is accompanied here by Jo "Fingers" Carr and his Band. This is an album of timeless classics from what is now referred to as "La Belle Epoch". It is composed of popular songs from about 1900-1920 and it is presented in a series of medleys as were her two earlier albums. There is everything from beautiful waltzes to raucous Dixieland to Vaudeville, Music Hall and Broadway, and the album is not only a complement to her Roaring 20's albums, it stands on its own as a lovely collection of historically significant songs with plenty of life and fun still in them.

Dorothy is in top form, and this music seems to suit her even more than did the flapper era songs. The ballads are my favorites. "Alice Blue Gown and "After the Ball" were two of my Mom's favorite songs. Dorothy sings them here in gentle acoustic versions that are bound to bring a lump to one's throat. Does Barbara Cook sing this type of song better? Yes! but here they are somehow more accessable. The now forgotten "My Gal Sal" is a lost treasure. Wait until you hear "Ta-ra-ra-boom-der-ay"; "Daisy Bell"; "Ida, sweet as apple cider". The titles may by old fashioned but the sentiment behind them is not. If you bought Sepia's ROARING 20's soundtrack, this is a "Must have" addition.

It is only a shame that Dorothy didn't do more recording while she was with us. She was great!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sepia Records does it again! 3 Jan 2014
By Jeffrey Kinzig - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Oh You Kid with Dorothy Provine was released circa 1962 around the time The Roaring 20s TV series was discontinued.
Around that time period there was not much on TV on other than Route 66 or 77 Sunset Strip.
The Roaring 20s was a novelty then with the 1920s music, speakeasies and bath tub gin. I soon got hooked on the old tunes being in junior high school.
Was thrilled to see Oh You Kid released on CD recently for the first time. It fit right in with two other CDs I had purchased from Amazon. The Roaring 20s vinyl was released on CD featuring Dorothy Provine along with Dorothy's Vamp of the Roaring 20s.
Should you choose The Roaring 20s on the SEPIA label, it has both of Dorothy's albums in STEREO! The other Roaring 20s album offered by Dorothy is inferior and in mono. Oh You Kid rounds the collection out. For additional listening enjoyment, I recommend The Riotous, Raucous. Red-Hot 20s featuring Joe Fingers Carr on the Collectables label!
These 3 CDs all mesh together to provide musical enjoyment from the 1890s to the 1920s! Happy listening.
2.0 out of 5 stars Only One Thing Wrong 30 Dec 2013
By G. Schneider - Published on
There's really only one thing wrong with this album, and that's Dorothy Provine. Lou Busch, under his alias Joe "Fingers" Carr, is, as always, in top form. He rarely turned in a mediocre performance. The material, corny by today's standards (but that's almost a plus in my book!), is arranged and played beautifully in Busch's inimitable style. But that voice! Ms. Provine hadn't a clue as she leaped around the songs, pounding the hell out of them...unless, of course, you're a Provine fan, which the other reviewer of this album obviously is, in which case she's brilliant). I have always wished there were some way to get hold of the master tapes for these sessions and wipe her vocals, then find a real singer who knows what she's doing and dub her in. Barbara Cook was mentioned in the other review of this album. Yes, that woman could handle these songs brilliantly. When Teresa Brewer was still alive, she would have been another good choice. Toward the end of her career, long after she'd lost the perky quality her early recordings had, she was turning out some beautiful albums. Ms. Provine could have learned something. Maybe she did, since apparently there were only three albums to her "credit". I'm sorry if I'm coming off snippy here, but I have always loved and honored Joe "Fingers" Carr and the thought of him in the studio, doing his typically wonderful job just to back up such a mediocre singer galls me.

As for the other tracks included with this collection, JOE "FINGERS" CARR AND HIS SWINGING STRING BAND is a brilliant album. I don't know why it's included here, since it was one of his Capitol albums -- one of few he did in stereo for that label. (The Provine album was after he'd moved to Warner Bros Records.) It shows just how delightful Lou Busch could be when not encumbered by a singer like Provine.
