Album Review

Singer/actress/comedienne Edie Adams has described herself in fits of self-deprecation as a "singer who never had a record on the charts." While that may be, the evidence on this album shows that Miss Adams had a most ingratiating way with a melody and had a keen ear for selecting out-of-the-way choices for great songs to interpret. The Charming Miss Edie Adams was originally issued on RKO Records in 1959, and the majority of its track lineup was recorded the previous year. Two of the album's tracks ("Sailor Man" and "There May Be a Love") had been recorded in 1951 and released on Top Tunes Records, a small independent based in Ocean City, New Jersey. For the RKO release, she recorded another ballad, "If You Don't Love Me" and another novelty, "He Don't Wanna Be Kissed," co-written by her husband, comedian Ernie Kovacs, Domenico Modugno (writer and singer of "Volare") and Jack Segal, the lyricist responsible for "When Sunny Gets Blue" and "Scarlet Ribbons." Four seldom-heard selections from the Rodgers and Hart songbook ("Why Can't I?," "There's So Much More," "I Must Love You" and "He Was Good to Me"), along with two instrumentals from bandleader Joe Leahy ("The Theme From Studio X" and "Swiss Holiday") complete this ten-song package.
