Tango Time - The Castilians


La Rosita

Tango Time
Featuring The Castilians
Under the Direction of Victor Young
Instrumental Tangos
Decca Records DL 5410 (10 inch 33 RPM)

From the back cover: Victor Young was born in 1900 in Chicago. He inherited has musical talent from his father, an accomplished musician and singer. At four he was plucking the strings of a violin given to him by his grandfather, and at six he was playing recognizable melodies on this same instrument.

When Victor Young was ten he was sent to live with his grandfather in Warsaw. Here he aroused the interest of the director of the Imperial Conservatory and worked hard to justify this dignified attention. He later graduated from the Conservatory and received a Guarnerius violin from a Polish banker.

After the signing of the Armistice of World War I he returned to America and married his Polish sweetheart in California. National interest followed, and soon Young was back in his home town in Chicago, where he conducted large orchestras in plush movie palaces. He was able now to compose and arrange his own music. Striking a compromise with the jazz mood of the day, he became one of the first true exponents of that great type of American music.

Riding the rising tide of his fortunes he was mad musical director for Balaban and Katz. In this era of the twenties the whole nation was singing his "Sweet Sue" and now, in the fifties, they're still singing it.

A roll call of his popular tunes would fill many pages, but a few of his top hits of the roaring twenties include "A Ghost Of A Chance," "Street Of Dreams." "Can't We Talk It Over," "Love Me Tonight," Lawd You Made The Night Too Long," "Let Me Be Born Again," "Beautiful Love," "Sweet Madness," "A Hundred Years From Today," "Give Me A Heart To Sing To," "Old Man Of The Mountain," "Je Vous Adore." Today's youngsters cannot only sing his "Sweet Sue' but a flock of other Victor Young Tunes, ranging from other hits still popular to the recent song hit, "My Foolish Heart."

Victor Young's sensitive scores soon made him the objective of Hollywood music tales scouts and he came to Paramount Studios in 1935. Examples of his talent are shown in many pictures, the complete list numbering around two hundred. Some of them are "For Whom The Bell Tolls," "Love Letters," "Golden Earrings," "September Affair," "Ridin' High," "Samson And Delilah," "Something To Liv For," "The Greatest Show On Earth," all for Paramount and, in the free lance field, "My Foolish Heart," "The Quiet Man," "Sands Of Iwo Time," "The Korean Story," etc.

Victor Young has been etching for Decca Records since the waxery's inception in 1934. He has recorded for them his most important motion picture scores in album form, "For Whom The Bell Tolls," "Love Letters," "Golden Earrings," "Samson And Delilah,""The Quiet Man," and others.

A few of the Decca recording artist he has worked with are Bing Crosby, Dick Haymes, The Andrew Sisters, Tommy Dorsey, The dramatic albums for which he has scored the music include such artists as Ronald Colman, Walter Huston, Loretta Young, Herbert Marshall, Ingrid Bergman, Charles Laughton, Ginger Rogers, Bing Crosby, Agnes Moorehead, Sidney Greenstreet. Victor Young has also exhibited his musical talents on top-notch radio shows. He worked four years on the John Charles Thomas (Westinghouse) Radio Show and more recently on the Carnation Contented Hour for a two year period.

In the realm of serious music, several large orchestral composition of his are "Pearls On Velvet," "Arizona Sketches," "Leaves Of Grass," "Stella By Starlight," "Manhattan Concerto," all of which have been performed during past seasons by the San Francisco Symphony and the Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestras.

Fool, Fool, Fool - Webb Pierce


In Another World

Fool, Fool, Fool
Webb Pierce
Decca Records STEREO DL 74964
A Division of MCA Inc.

From the back cover: The Webb Pierce story might easily be termed an Horatio Alger tale. Born on a farm in West Monroe, La., he was one of five-children - he has three brothers and a sister. He first picked a guitar at the age of twelve, and in less time than it took to bring in a season's crop, Webb mastered the instrument. It wasn't long thereafter that his relatives and neighbors heard a good deal of his singing and playing and soon came to realize his inborn talents. Young Webb, they felt, was surely a "natural."

At sixteen he was proficient enough to land his first gob as a professional entertainer, a 15-minute radio show over his hometown station. Webb still worked the farm with his dad, but the show – which soon became the most popular one in the area – and the world of entertainment were now his main interests.

Next came the three years with the army, followed by the job with Sears Roebuck while he was waiting to resume his singing career. That first "big break" came when he landed a week-to-week spot with the famed "Louisiana Hayride." At the start, he was used sparingly, but within a few short months the program received a veritable flood of fan mail begins to hear more from the newcomer, and the "Hayride" sponsors obliged by elevating Webb to a starring role. And the rest, as they say, is country music history, as success followed success. Today Webb Pierce is one of the most honored country music entertainers of our time.

In 1951, Webb signed the first of many long-term contracts with Decca Records, and his string of consistent hit recordings is well commented upon wherever country music fans congregate. Today, Webb Pierce is one of the nation's foremost country stars. He has sold millions of recordings for Decca, has popularized hundreds of songs (many of which he has written himself), and his fan mail rivals that of any Hollywood star. All of this, however, comes as no surprise to Webb's kin and neighbors back home in West Monroe, La., for to them, as we mentioned above, he was always a "natural."

Merry Christmas Carols - Robert Rheims


Away In The Manger / I Saw Three Ships

Merry Christmas Carols
Robert Rheims
Organ - Chimes
Rheims Records LP 6006

From the back cover: Robert Rheims, America's foremost Christmas Carol recording artist, has for years devoted his time exclusively to the study, research and recording of Christmas music. His interest in Christmas songs began during a tour of Europe when he visited the magnificent cathedral in Reims, France. Here was a building of ageless beauty with universal appeal to all who gazed upon it, and, like all other churches, dedicated to the good of mankind all over the world. He felt that music too had universal appeal – and properly employed could be dedicated to express the true spirit of Christmas on modern phonograph records. By recording the old and sacred carols which have been handed down by the people of many lands through the ages, he hoped, perhaps in some small way, his musical talents might serve to help others to enjoy these old and beautiful melodies and – ring out a joyous Christmas to all.

Big Dixie - Harry Zimmerman


Wabash Blues

Big Dixie
Harry Zimmerman and His Big Dixieland Band
Stereo Sounds Production SA-1
A Subsidiary of Phono-Record Management, Inc., Los Angeles, California

From the back cover: The musicians in this album who obviously have so much fun playing together are Mickey Mangano, Conrad Gozzo and Cappy Lewis on trumpet; Joe Howard and Herbie Harper on trombone; Willie Schwartz, Eddie Miller, Heine Beau and Dale Issenhuth on saxophone; Sam Cheifetz, bass; Al Hendrickson, guitar; and Irv Cottler and Lou Singer provide the drum work and swing on percussions.

From Billboard - October 27, 1958 (HiFi Record R608 review): Dixieland loses much of its warmth and tightly-knit tenture when its given the big band blowup. Its characteristic free-swinging style sounds fenced in by arrangements. But even Dixie must yield to progress and hi-fi's demands for the big, full sound, aside from these inherent shortcomings, the musicianship here is tops, and the big sound they deliver is excellently recorded to show off any hi-fi or stereo rig to its fullest advantage. And that'll sell 'em.

Christmas Carousel - Peggy Lee

Peggy Lee
Orchestra Conducted by Billy May
Produced by Dave Cavanaugh
Capitol Records T 1423

From Billboard - October 31, 1960: This is a new role from Peggy Lee, singing well-known and not so well-known Christmas carols. But she handles them all creditably, accompanied by a children's chorus. The songs include "Jingle Bells," "Deck The Halls," and "White Christmas." This is not the usual sexy Miss Lee, but it should have appeal.

Arthur Lyman, who has done more to endear the romantic melodies of the islands to the hearts of the world's record collectors and to the travelers who ultimately find their way to Hawaii, has had hit-after hit on Hi Fi records.

The day that stereo records were announced was the day that the music of Arthur Lyman became most sought after because of the nature of his arrangements which made the stereo illusion most effective.

His record "Taboo" Hi Fi #550, became one of the biggest selling and most played in the history of stereo records. Not only in Hawaii, but in all of the Americas and the European continent as well.

Jazz Impressions Of Eurasia - Dave Brubeck


The Golden Horn

Jazz Impression Of Eurasia
The Dave Brubeck Quartet
Photography: Bob Willoughby
Models Courtesy of Government of India Tourist Office, San Francisco
Columbia Records CL 1251

From the back cover: In early February 1958, the Quartet and I boarded a Pan America Clipper for London. Our tour, which began in England, took us through the countries of Northern Europe, behind the Iron Curtain into Poland, through the Middle East (Turkey, Iran and Iraq) and on into India, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Ceylon. When we returned to New York in the middle of May, we had traveled thousands of miles, had performed over 80 concerts in 14 different countries, and had collected a traveler's treasure of curios (see cover) and impressions (hear record) of Europe and Asia.

As in "Jazz Impression of the U.S.A.," these sketches of Eurasia have been developed from random musical phrases I jotted down in my notebook as we chugged across the fields of Europe, or skimmed across the deserts of Asia, or walked in the winding alleyways of an ancient bazaar. I did not approach the writing of this album with the exactness of a musicologist. Instead, as the title indicates, I tried to create an impression of a particular locale by using some of the elements of their folk music within the jazz idiom.

From Billboard - November 24, 1958: The set is composed of musical settings based on themes suggested or acquired by the pianist and his crew on their European and Middle East trek earlier this year. It's an excellent six track set which allows Desmond his usual share of honors. Joe Benjamin is featured on bass, and Joe Morello hold down drums. It's another fine offering by the group, and another likely big seller. Good cover photo of Brubeck trying on a turban.

Company's Comin' - Red Foley


Trouble In Mind

Company's Comin'
Red Foley
Decca Records DL 4140

From the back cover: Red was well on his way to becoming the best known "French harp blower" of Madison County, Ky., when some Chicago radio man had the idea of hiring him for a big-city station. So ended a promising career of harmonica playing at box socials and began, at age 20, just about the greatest number of years of top popularity any entertainer has ever known. (This album's lead-off tune, Methodist Pie, is one he's done throughout his 31 years of professional singing on radio, personal appearances and, more recently, TV.

Not long ago, Red and older brother Cotton (and enough shirt-tail kinfolks to have made Gen. Robert E. Lee a respectable sized battalion) helped Mama and Papa Foley celebrate their sixtieth wedding anniversary in Berea. Around the house Red found some old harmonicas, left over from the days when the family operated their little general store. When he took one of them out to the back porch to recapture some of the fun the instrument had once brought him, Red hastily discovered his playing was as rusty as the harmonica itself. "Guess I wasn't a born French harp player after all," he muttered, and returned to join the others inside.

But a born singer of country music he is. A singer of the songs that are warm and homey and as typical of the American way of life as – well, to use a well-worn phrase, apple pie. Red's singing, however, has been the "a la mode," the ice cream on top of the apple pie. For Foley's is the "something special" talent of country music.
