Ballads For Night People - June Christy

Ballads For Night People
June Christy
Arranged and Conducted by Bob Cooper
Produced by Bill Biller
Capitol Records T1308

Available from online vendors so I will not be posting a sample. Presented here to share the cover and Billboard review.

From Billboard - February 15, 1960: June Christy, the one and original, comes thur with her own special and attractive interpretations of a group of tunes for that amorphous group of fans known as Night People. The songs include such familiar items as "Bewitched" and "Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me" and such unfamiliar efforts as "Night People" from the recent show, "The Nervous Set," and "I Had A Little Sorrow," based on Edna St. Vincent Millay's "The Penitent." Miss Christy with backing by Bob Cooper chants them all endearingly.

From the back cover: "The Sawbuck Singers" are a completely unique vocal group; ten girls now attending the College of New Rochelle. They were originally organized by Mica McCann when she was a freshman and was asked to provide entertainment for the College's annual "Winter Weekend".

During Mica McCann's second year in college, she was placed in charge of a class project to raise money for the school. An inter-collegiate hootenanny was arranged with groups invited from Cornell, Fordham and the University of Virginia. The fund raising program was a huge success, "The Sawbuck Singers" were stars of the show and decided to stay together as a professional group. Many of the songs in this album are performed by the girls in their personal appearances.
