Lana!

The Fool On The Hill
Lana!
Arranged and Conducted by Chuck Sagle
Produced by Danny Davis
RCA LSP-4026
1968

Here's another unique Lana Cantrell/Chuck Sagle project (Also see: Another Shade Of Lana - 1967) that is hard for me to shoehorn into any category or to compare to anything else that I've heard. The "show tune/pop" blend transcends what I generally expect to hear from this type of set. Even The Fool On The Hill will surprise you if you give it a chance, due largely in part to the Sagle's inventive arrangement.

  1. Nice album. I have Lana complete on vinyl. Wikipedia says she has made 7 albums but there only 6. Way too little. A great singer!
