Skeeter Davis


This is one of Skeeter Davis' best albums. It contains The End of the World, Something Precious and Silver Threads and Golden Needles. Her version of Silver Threads is my favorite rendition. It definitely needs to be on cd.

Joni James The Mood is Swinging


This is a joyful album from Joni James. It's upbeat and I love I get a kick out of you and The Lady is a Tramp. Joni James' albums are usually ballads so this is a nice change of pace. Recommended.

Claudine Longet


Claudine Longet had a distinctive whispery voice. It took time to grow on me but I know I own all of her records. The production on her albums especially the A and M records were good. This album focuses on folk and old time tunes. Am I Blue? and Hurry on Down are enjoyable. I think it's gonna rain Today features Randy Newman on piano.

Abbe Lane


I also recommend Where there's a man. Abbe Lane had a brassy voice and a lot of fun on her albums. Check out her rendition of "A Little Girl from Little Rock."
