Album Review

Diana Dors is known more as an actress and sex symbol than as a singer, but she did sing on record during her heyday. This 1960 album is a competent pop-jazz session, with accompaniment from the Wally Stott Orchestra (Stott perhaps being best known internationally for working in the '60s with Scott Walker, Dusty Springfield, and Shirley Bassey). Unlike many records by celebrities known mostly for acting, Swinging Dors isn't a novelty album, or an embarrassment. It's just a very straightforward swing jazz-flavored adult pop session, Dors singing much better, in the conventional sense, than her American counterpart Marilyn Monroe. At the same time, Monroe, for all her vocal limitations, projected much more character than Dors does on this record, which is surprisingly only in its utter ordinariness.


Born: 23 October 1931 in Swindon, Wiltshire, England

Years Active: '60s

The United Kingdom's answer to Marilyn Monroe, Diana Dors (born Diana May Fluck) was loved by England's rock musicians. She appeared on the cover of the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and the Smiths' 1995 compilation, Singles, and made guest appearances in several videos by Adam Ant, including 1980's "Prince Charming," in which she portrayed his fairy godmother. The Kinks paid homage to her when they included the Ray Davies-penned tribute tune, "Good Day," on their Word of Mouth album....
