It's Cool Inside - Jerri Adams

Love For Sale
It's Cool Inside
Jerri Adams
Columbia CL 916

To help warm things up on this cold 2014 winter day, I've lit a fire in The Atomic Attic. Enjoy Adams' hot torch treatment of Love For Sale.

From the back cover: Tall, dark and comely, Jerri Adams was born in Cincinnati on May 30, 1930. Along with her regular schooling, she applied herself industriously to singing, carolling in church choirs, with her high school dance band and at the local USO. After a year at the University of Cincinnati, she left to take up a spot as the featured vocalist with Gardner Benedict's orchestra, touring the country and appearing in most of the major hotels and ballrooms along the way. Later, she left the band to appear with a vocal-instrumental group throughout the midwest, and it was while she was singing with this combination that she was heard by Frankie Lane. The rest, as noted above, is a continuing history, and this collection is a milestone in the rise of a major singing star.
