Jane Morgan started her career in France in the late forties and early fifties and a continental atmosphere pervades most items on this well filled disc. The Troubadours' accompaniments, consisting of a couple of violins, an accordion and guitar, provide a delicate, almost intimate setting for Ms Morgan's beautiful voice (a cross between Doris Day and Vera Lynn, with a bit of Edith Piaf thrown in for good measure). The song material consists of well known standards, usually made famous by somebody else (Sinatra, Boone, Day, Crosby, Como) and while this often means that the cover version is not quite up to the original, Ms Morgan's vocal and interpretative qualities are such that she makes the songs sound as if they were written especially for her. "It's Not For Me To Say", "All The Way" and "Maybe You'll Be There" are, to my mind, some of the best versions of the songs available. Everybody who has ever pined for an unreachable love, or who has experienced a painful break-up will immediately be gripped by the sincerity of Ms Morgan's renditions. On the rare occasions when she really cuts loose, on "The Day the Rains Came" and its French counterpart, we hear that she was also capable of turning up the volume without loss of voice quality. Accompaniments on the second part of the album by Marty Gold and Vic Schoen are professional but eclectic and not always as inspired or inventive as those of e.g. Frank Hunter (on the Sepia CD "Jane in Spain") or as unified as The Troubadours on the first part of this CD, but Ms Morgan manages to overcome any hindrances she may have encountered in that department effortlessly.Read more ›

A lovely lady with a beautiful voice - as were many of that era. This collection of old favourites brings back fond memories. Not many cds have so many (27) wonderful tracks. Highly recommended.

This generous CD from Sepia contains 27 tracks and really lives up to its title. Only two of the tracks were unfamiliar to me. The remainder are all standards. The booklet has some lovely pics of the artist and list of composers, but no timings (important for those of us who put music programmes together). There's also an interesting commentary from Lancashire-born Dominic McHugh who last year (2009) completed a PhD on My Fair Lady at King's College, London. All round good value and good entertainment.

It is so long since I heard artists and songs of my youth. It was such a thrill to hear Jane's voice again.
Thank you for so much pleasure.

Stylish diva, Jane Morgan, owes her image of sophistication in looks and manner to her background of childhood opera training and subsequent embryonic vocal appearances in Paris that eventually lead to her successful transition back in the USA where she gained popularity via night clubs, television and Broadway. As a recording artist, much of the material assigned her duly emphasised her smooth vocal style that was effortless and generally concentrated on ballads.

This third Sepia collection continues its trawl through Jane's 1957/58 catalogue and includes her UK Number One signature hit THE DAY THE RAINS CAME as well as its mirror-image French-language version LE JOUR OU LA PLUIE VIENDRA. However, the other twenty-five tracks are equally noteworthy with Jane recreating a fair number of Fifties songs that were hits for others. AROUND THE WORLD, IT'S NOT FOR ME TO SAY, APRIL LOVE, CATCH A FALLING STAR and ALL THE WAY may have been successful for Crosby, Mathis, Pat Boone, Como and Sinatra respectively, but Jane's versions are terrific. Standards WRAP YOUR TROUBLES IN DREAMS, MAYBE YOU'LL BE THERE and WHO'S SORRY NOW? also shine as do the Continentally-inspired ANNA, VOLARE, BAMBINO and MELODIE D'AMOUR, with the upbeat EVERYBODY LOVES A LOVER a change of pace and making a good alternative to Doris Day's hit version.

Sepia's usual care in presentation includes extensive notes, photographs and recording dates with excellent sound quality making this an attractive tribute to one of the Fifties' classy songbirds.
