5.0 out of 5 stars STEVE AND EYDIE ARE A JOYFUL LISTENING PLEASURE!, 14 Jan 2013

As a dedicated fan who once had the pleasure of seeing Steve & Eydie at the London Palladium, I rate the talented pair as the most gifted and entertaining US duo ever. Over the past fifty years they have hostel their own television shows, headlined the Broadway stage and Vegas cabaret whilst grabbing a few Grammys along the way as they hit the high spots with their own brand of genuine togetherness. Even so, they also managed to balance solo careers via some wonderful albums and a few hit singles which overall attest to their ability in meeting new challenges as they continued to appear on stage until Eydie's recent retirement.

During their long career they recorded for a number of record labels and when things got tough for established singers during the Sixties, they initiated their own album projects which were either licensed to and released by major record companies or issued on their own label - GL Music. However this delightful pair of albums, recorded for the now defunct United Artists label, predates such need and together they showcase the Great American Songbook with some emphasis on songs which emanated from the Broadway stage. COZY, recorded in 1961, opens with that suitably romantic number before selecting MY FAIR LADY's WOULDN'T IT BE LOVERLY. From then on there's A FINE ROMANCE, SHE DIDN'T SAY YES, BLUE ROOM, PERSONALITY and TWO SLEEPY PEOPLE which represent those songs from the Golden Age which make perfect duet material for the tuneful two-some who always managed to make them musically cute rather than cheesy.

Recorded the following year, TWO ON THE AISLE (written by the singers along with their conductor/arranger Don Costa) naturally introduces Broadway showstoppers from then-current Broadway musicals with Eydie having solo choice for THE PARTY'S OVER, OUR LANGUAGE OF LOVE and JUST MY LUCK whilst Steve smoothly croons his way through top-of-the-range ballads TILL THERE WAS YOU and IF EVER I WOULD LEAVE YOU with the addition of the more up-tempo IT'S LOVE. Together, they handle MAKE SOMEONE HAPPY, NAMELY YOU, PUT ON A HAPPY FACE and A LOT OF LIVIN' TO DO leaving me pondering the fact these songs still remain classics from that period.

Five bonus songs include Johnny Mercer's THE FACTS OF LIFE which Steve and Eydie sang over the credits of the 1960 Bob Hope/Lucille Ball movie; Steve's - major and minor hits GO AWAY LITTLE GIRL (US#1) and MY CLARE DE LUNE (US#68) adapted from the classics by Leiber/Stoller plus Eydie's catchy BLAME IT ON THE BOSSA NOVA (US#7 UK#32).

Sepia's usual excellent sound remastering, presentation, photographs, original album graphics and notes match the gravitas of these excellent albums.

This is a must for fans of Mr & Mrs Music as they were known in the USA for quite a few decades. The previous lack of material and reissues is being put right by Sepia and these United Artists recordings are just what we want to hear and the inclusion of bonus numbers is the icing on a fine cake. I have been a fan of Steve and Eydie since the 1970s when they did a number of composer themed television shows which were outstanding stuff. These earlier recordings have both in fine voice and the duets tell you why they were and still are after all these years Mr & Mrs. Thank you Sepia for grea sound transfers and lovely liner notes yet again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Great, 31 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cozy / Two On The Aisle (Audio CD)
I have heard of Eydie Gorme many times on the radio so I decided to find out more and thanks to Amazon this CD was brought to my attention. Steve Lawrence has such a good voice and these two are amazing together singing both serious and fun tunes.
Its like discovering a hidden gem. Excellent !
