Album Review

Eddie Fisher's recording career was launched by the Top Five success of "Thinking of You" in the fall of 1950, but it took another year for him to start scoring big hits consistently. After he had placed four consecutive singles in the Top Ten, however, RCA Victor decided in the spring of 1952 that the time had come for the first Eddie Fisher LP. The label, which had opposed the LP format when rival Columbia originated it a few years earlier and even introduced the 45 RPM single to combat it, still wasn't much interested in wasting a lot of effort on such a 10" disc, however, and instead of having Fisher record new material for his inaugural long-player, simply gathered together a bunch of stray tracks he had recorded as far back as the fall of 1949, when he'd just been signed. Of the eight recordings, only three, "Just Say I Love Her," "If You Should Leave Me," and "Thinking of You," had been released previously on singles. But the rest were really just single rejects, minor songs recorded with an eye toward getting something going on a singer who hadn't yet found a handle.

Eddie Fisher ranked behind only Patti Page and Perry Como as the most successful pop singles artist of the first half of the 1950s, placing 35 songs in the Billboard charts between 1950 and 1954, including 22 Top Ten hits, among them seven gold records, four of which hit number one. Fisher was part of a new generation of male singers who eschewed the intimate crooning style of Como, Bing Crosby, and Frank Sinatra in favor of a more bravura approach that sometimes recalled Al Jolson.
