Album Review

Bob Braun enjoyed a long career as a regional star in and around Cincinnati, but broke out nationally with Till Death Do Us Part in 1962. He recorded for Fraternity in the late '50s, and made a good-selling but non-charting version of "Sweet Violets" before signing with Decca Records. "Till Death Do Us Part," a romantic mix of singing and recitation, became Braun's career hit when it reached the Top 30. A follow-up single, "Our Anniversary of Love," featured a similar mixture of singing and recitation and "bubbled under" Billboard's Top 100. Till Death Do Us Part contains those two hits and other romantic ballads, many of which are pop standards written by classic composers such as Arthur Hammerstein, Irving Berlin, and Hoagy Carmichael. Only the closing track, "Just in Time," could be characterized as a rocker. "Wasn't the Summer Short" was written by Ruth Lyons, Braun's costar on the WLW 50-50 Club television and radio programs, while conductor Sid Bass contributed "That Certain Something (We Call Love)." Unlike the hits, most of the tracks are sung, not spoken. Till Death Do Us Part inched into the album Top 100, and represents the pinnacle of Braun's commercial success as a recording artist. Braun was a good-looking guy with an appealing baritone who inexplicably failed to catch on with the easy listening audience.
