Frances Faye: Four Classic Albums (No Reservations / Sings Folk Songs / Relaxin’ With Frances Faye / Swinging All The Way) (2CD)

Ref: AMSC1177

(UK Postage Free )


AVID Jazz continues with its Four Classic album series with a re-mastered 2CD release by Frances Faye, complete with original artwork and liner notes.
“No Reservations”; “Sings Folk Songs”; “Relaxin’ With Frances Faye” and “Swingin’ All The Way”.
Unfairly compartmentalised with the many “easy listening” female artists of the 1950’s, Frances Faye had in fact started her singing career at the age of 15 way back in the 1930’s. She had spent many years singing and playing piano on stage and in night clubs, writing much of her own material and even composing a song for the Andrews Sisters! She is perhaps best remembered for her outrageous night club routines which contained large slices of sexual innuendo which was to influence the likes of Bette Midler many years later. Moving from Capitol Records to Bethlehem her material became less commercial but more interesting to the jazz listener! She made her last significant album in 1964 but continued her stage work until way into the 1980’s.
