Martha Davis And Spouse

Umbrella Man
Martha Davis And Spouse
ABC-Paramount ABC-160
1957

Swinging couples act who, from the sounds of it, enjoyed life and music.

From the back cover: An intelligent quiet man with a dry sense of humor, he complements (and compliments) his wife's gay warmth and effusiveness in every way. When they work (or rather, play) together, they just have a ball. Incidentally, the unusual name for the act, "just happened" the way things "just happen" in good swinging sessions. As Calvin explains it, they didn't want Martha to lose the following she had developed as Martha Davis, and how much can your billing suffer when you change your name from Cat to Spouse.
