Great 50's/60's Camp!

She's raw, she's gritty, she's just plan fun! One of the great additions to my vintage vocal collection, this is a crowd pleaser if you are into campy lounge acts (and I am - vintage and modern). Frances Faye was years ahead of the others in just plain fun entertainment. It's a shame more of her work is not available digitally.

FRAN-TASTIC!

This woman is soon to be a household name, and it's about time! I became a "FAYE-NATIC" the second I heard the opening bongo's on "The Man I Love." I count myself in excellent company, since during her frequent nightclub engagements in LA, ringsiders were usually Bing Crosby, Donald O'Connor, Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, Mitzi Gaynor, Buddy Hackett, and Sammy Davis, Jr. just to name a few! To say that Frances Faye has a distinctively fresh approach to music is to understate the case. She's light, casual, always entertaining, with awesome jazz chops and a voice...that defies definition! I heard about a San Francisco jazz singer doing a recreation of her Faye's live act so it's just a matter of time before Frances Faye is on everyone's iPod! Check out how open she was with sexuality in the 50's! A true pioneer and a great musical comedienne! Sweet combination. The tune "Drunk With Love" is a rarity, a song Faye picked up from a gay composer/singer in the 30's who committed suicide at a young age. She apparently recorded it several times and sang it in every live performance. Not only a great entertainer, but a woman with a real, beating heart. Rare indeed! Buy this album and maybe it will convince Crescendo Records and Verve to re-release some others!
