Here's an obscure album that features a rich blend of showtune/lounge/pop vocals built on unique arrangements by Chuck Sagle.

From Billboard - October 7, 1967: Lana Cantrell, RCA Victor singer, returned to the U.S. Wednesday (27) from her native Australia, where she completed engagements at the Chequers in Sydney and the New 20s in Melbourne. On tap for her here is a heavy schedule of night club engagements and TV commitments during the next few months. First of these is a appearance on Ed Sullivan's CBS-TV show Sunday (8), with a second appearance scheduled for Nov. 12.

Upcoming night club engagements include the Cork Club, Houston, Oct. 14-27; the Cocoanut Grove, Los Angles, Nov. 14 - Dec. 2, and New York's Copacabana, Dec. 7 - 20. In addition, negotiations for Miss Cantrell to open at Fairmont Hotel, San Francisco, May 9, 1968, have just been wrapped up.

Miss Cantrell's second Victor album, "Another Shade Of Lana," is being released this month.
