Album Review

Originally issued in 1956 on RKO's Unique label under the title The Kid from Maine, this captures Vallee on one of his more successful late-career missions in recutting his old hits for a new audience. Unlike most of his contemporaries who had trouble bridging their music from old 78s to the LP high-fidelity format, Vallee shows himself to be in good voice throughout.

Succinct liner notes from Ian Whitcomb are an added bonus.
