Specially compiled from her British recordings for the American market, Meet Cleo was her debut release on the other side of the Atlantic. Meet Cleo Laine, one of the finest of Britains young singing stars in her American album debut! Little more than five years ago a housewife who confined her singing to lightening her work around the house, the exciting Miss Laine was discovered by Johnny Dankworth, the popular English band-leader. As soloist with the Dankworth group, Cleo rose quickly in popularity with British pop music fans, so much so that it was soon necessary for her to go out on her own as a single. Cleo has often been compared to some of our American singing greats of nightery fame. True, she has that atmosphere of compelling drama and impeccable taste in songs that are essential in appearing before fashionable bistro audiences. She has a big sound too. What distinguishes Cleo, though, is her quite unique sense of styling and interpretation.
