Steve Lawrence & Eydie Gorme: The Original Hits (CD)

(Real Gone Music) 20 tracks - 14 page booklet

If you add up the years that Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme have spent actively recording, you get over 110 years. How can you fit all that on a single CD? Well, at Real Gone Music we know that sometimes you just have to have the hits. And that's exactly what we've done with this 20-track CD: we've packed it full of the highlights of their hits, both solo and together. The result: the most concentrated dose of Steve and Eydie hits ever brought together in a single collection! One thing becomes very, very clear when listening to The Original Hits: no matter the genre, be it pop, Latin, rock'n'roll or The Great American Songbook, this dynamic duo - who, incidentally, were recently the subject of a wonderful TV special of TJ Lubinsky's My Music series on Public Television - showcase their vocal mastery. Included are gems like Steve's "Party Doll", "Go Away, Little Girl", "Footsteps" and "Portrait of My Love", Eydie's "You Need Hands", "Sabor A Mi", "Blame It on the Bossa Nova" and "Tonight I'll Say a Prayer" as well as their duets "I Want to Stay Here", "I Can't Stop Talking About You" and "We Can Make It Together" with The Osmonds. Like our other Steve and Eydie releases, "The Original Hits" was compiled with the help of their son David Lawrence and includes rare photos and liner notes by Billboard writer Paul Grein. Consider this a tasty appetizer before the multi-course meal we'll be serving from the Steve and Eydie catalog in the coming months!

Steve Lawrence

Party Doll

Steve Lawrence is no Buddy Knox. In some respects, he's a lot more. In other respects, he's a lot less. It's the latter problem we're concerned about here.

Like many of the finest rockabilly records, Party Doll was really a series of guitar solos set apart by some vocal stanzas. Knox's little four-piece group, The Rhythm Orchids, wasn't up to much, but they shone on Party Doll. You pushed them much beyond that and you'd see the holes in their game. Putting together a studio group of New York's A-team and telling them to play down like this, has the potential to reveal the holes in their game as well. Could they keep it to just three chords? Could Steve Lawrence (born Sidney Liebowitz) resist the urge to be a classy ballad singer and keep it to basic Texas rock 'n' roll? Here are the results.

Actually, they're surprisingly good. Knox's original version hit the charts on February 23, 1957, and Steve Lawrence was in the studio barely three weeks later on March 17th. There was no grass growing under the feet of the nice folks at Coral Records. Dick Jacobs Orchestra & Chorus masks the identity of a nucleus of credible musicians who listened to (or knew) the Knox original and kept their performances credible. The unnamed guitar player stays locked into Knox's solo for the first four bars and then lets it fly, revealing his skills extend beyond 3-chord rock 'n' roll. Steve Lawrence's vocal is surprisingly effective, even showing some bluesy edges (flatted thirds) when you might not expect to hear them. Only the cornball ending suggests that maybe these people didn't quite have their hearts in what they were doing.

Eydie Gorme

Soda Pop Hop

Pop/easy listening singer Eydie Gorme got her start with the big bands of Tommy Tucker and Tex Beneke in the late 40s and had recorded several singles for MGM and Coral before taking up with ABC Paramount in 1955. By mid-1956, Eydie, along with her pop music contemporaries and producers, was no doubt puzzled by this amateur sounding rock 'n' roll stuff that was selling like crazy and dominating the charts.  How could she get in on the action?

Eydie stepped into the studio with Sid Feller (who would soon keep busy churning out hits with Paul Anka) and gave us Soda Pop Hop, a song for the kids from pop writer Dave Coleman (Stay Where You Are for Tony Bennett; Backward, Turn Backward for Jane Froman; Boston Fancy for Gisele McKenzie). Sid Feller would later go on to orchestrate and produce the mega-successful 1962 Ray Charles LP Modern Sounds In Country And Western Music.

And, while Soda Pop Hop does not rock, it is a solid punchy pop record with some vigorous singing from Eydie and Sid Feller's sock-em arrangement. The tune didn't chart. However, Eydie finally got her 'rock-pop' and biggest hit in 1963 with Blame It On The Bossa Nova, which featured double-tracked vocals (slightly, perhaps intentionally, out of tune) and a cheesy-sounding organ solo, tailor-made for those pre-Beatle, teen-pop, girl-group days.
