Tony Orlando: Halfway To Paradise

(2006/ACE) 27 tracks EPIC 1961-64 with 16 page booklet. Long before the break Of Dawn, Tony Orlando was the voice of many of the greatest pop records of the early 1960s. The demos he cut for the likes of The Drifters and Ben E. King are the stuff of legend. His own records - all written, arranged and produced by the biggest names in Brill Building pop - are still stunning after more than 40 years.

"Tony Orlando"

Tony Orlando,

Tony Orlando, born in New York, on April 3, 1944, first worked as a singer on demonstration discs for Don Kirshner's famous Brill Building music publishing operation. Orlando cut the originals of 'Will You Still Love Me To-morrow' and 'Some Kind Of Wonderful' (hits for the Shirelles and the Drifters) before Kirshner realized his potential as a singer in his own right. He specialized in the perfectly organized pop single and had three hits on Epic during 1961: 'Halfway To Paradise' (a British hit for Billy Fury), 'Bless You' (Top Twenty) and `Happy Times'. As a vocalist, he was one of the first 'blue-eyed soul' singers and the productions — by Kirshner and Al Nevins — were almost symphonic.

But despite the rich strings, Spanish guitars, castanets and girl choruses, it was Orlando that you heard. Hours of practice in acappella groups had helped to perfect a distinctive voice which often outshone the Goffin-King songs he was given. Machine-tooled, market-tested pop can be fine when you hum like Ben E. King. Although the Orlando voice disappeared later in the Sixties, he re-appeared in the next decade with a string of equally successful records with Dawn
