"Buttons And Bows"
When I was growing up, Dinah Shore was more popular as a television talk show
host on CBS. Her show was seen after school, after 3 pm, as her show was as
popular as other talk show hosts, as Mike Douglas and Merv Griffin. Her affair
with Burt Reynolds also sparked controversy, due to their age differences
Before her TV series, she had a musical career, that covered the 1940s
through the 1950s. She would have only 2 number one hits ("You'll Walk
Alone") , "Buttons And Bows" ). Her other hits
(including her 2 #1s) are captured on the ASV Ltd.'s Buttons And Bows,
a great collection of her popular songs, 25 songs total, from 1940 to 1949.
Any collection of a popular artist's music from the ASV Ltd. record company
has been truly exceptional. WSVNRadio has previously featured the ASV Ltd.
collections of such early big band artists as Jimmy Dorsey and Cab Calloway.
Dinah Shore's exceptional music of the 1940s decade features incredible music
of the Big Band era. Her music is relaxing, enjoyable, and entertaining.
Her musical style and beautiful voice captures a part of music that truly
isn't heard and as popular today. Some of today's current crooner-styled
performers are trying to break the surface and bring back Big Band music
popular as it once was. (Harry Connick Jr., Brian Setzer, and Michael Bugle
come to mind.)
Other than her 2 number one hits, there are some incredible music here.
Some songs Dinah Shore covers have been recorded by others, such as "The
Gipsy" (spelled Gypsy by The Ink Spots), "For Sentimental Reasons"
("[I Love You] For Sentimental Reasons" -- Nat King Cole), Al Jolson's
"Anniversary Song,", and the famous "Baby It's Old Outside"
duet with Buddy Clark.
There's not a bad song on this decade look of Dinah Shore's music. It's
for the Big Band lover, and for those who enjoy good music before the Rock &
Roll era. There truly isn't this kind of music anymore in the 21st Century,
but it's a good trip down memory lane, to listen to what good music sounded
like before Rock & Roll, and today's most favorite genres of music.
