Peggy Connelly

Peggy Connelly - In the 50's there were a number of vocal artists who only made one or two albums and vanished. Peggy Connelly was one of them and her album with Russ Garcia is awesome. She scats a bit but it's not in an annoying way rather she has fun with it. She does a really neat version of "I got plenty of nuttin'", actually it's my favorite rendition of the song. Apparently, she went on to do two albums with The New Christy Minstrels. (I used to own albums of them but stupidly threw them away.) This is her own solo shining moment though. There are serious moments sometimes but overall this is a pretty delightful album.
