Comments

Oct. 17, 2005: replaced with earlier pressings (my old copy had MS4/MS3 matrixes).

Inside The Groove

A nice compilation from Frankie Laine's hit singles in 1946-1950.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Frankie Laine, mostly known as a huge hitter “That's My Desire”, “Rawhide” and many more, is also a great songwriter - such nice compositions like “We'll Be Together Again”, “It Only Happens Once”, “Put Yourself In My Place Baby” proves his talent.

Surprisingly for me, his early years' recordings were very close to Jazzy moods, rather than mellow (but boring) ballads with strings. This album, a compilation of Frankie Laine's 1947-1950 hit singles, also features his neat and pleasant jazzy singing backed up with solid combo section. Especially a person who plays tenor sax digs so nice.

Sorry, I did thought he is just a mere “old-time” singer. But now I'm different - I come to know that, at least his early recordings sounds attractive for me.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

8 out of 10
