Swingin' Easy With Bill Doggett

Blue Prelude
Blue Skies
Swingin' Easy With Bill Doggett
King Records 582

This is one of those albums  whose theme is built on a "color", in this case, "blue". However, for some reason... King did not carry through the title concept to the cover material.

More curiously, King tries to explain away the front cover... on the back cover: In these days of tricky titles, employed to attract attention and create curiosity so that the record shopper will select a particular album, we have simply titled this offering "Swinging Easy" which, we hope, expresses the exact meaning of the album.

This record has a smooth and intimate lounge sound and there is enough arrangement creativity to keep the tracks moving along nicely.

  1. Groovy tunes. And if you start and play both tunes simultaneously, it's a special treat.

  2. Mr. Mark: Could you, please, send me the link for Bill Dogget ? Thank you very much for your attention.

  3. Dear Mr. Mark: Once again, where can I get the link to this record? Excuse-me, but I can´t find it nowhere. Thank you for your help.


Howdy! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
