I Can Cook Too - Nancy Walker

From Billboard - February 25, 1956: Broadway star comedienne Nancy Walker is as hot as she's ever been right now, what with the sock notices she drew recently for her tour de force performance in the current legit revival of Noel Coward's "Fallen Angels." However, she doesn't register nearly as strongly on records as she does in person, and, consequently, this album's main appeal will be to those who have caught her act and can use their imagination to get more out of the disk. She handles ballads in okay fashion, but is vastly more effective on special material ditties, scoring particularly with "Get Married Shirley," "Irving," "I Can Cook Too" and "Down to the Sea" from her hit revue of last season "Phoenix '55."

  1. What an era. Even a Hirschfeld drawing on the back.
    Nice find.
