Here’s a quote from the liner notes of one of our fine selections “The Exciting Connie Francis” - “There are many adjectives which apply to talented Connie Francis - vivacious, moody, winsome, evocative, charming, nostalgic, sparking, intense - and lots of more. But, one certainly does the trick in the summing-up. Above all, Connie is “exciting”! The petite young songstress radiates charm in all she sings, all she does……”. Well, what was it she does (and still does at a magnificent 82 years of age), we ask ourselves? Was she pop, was she easy listening or was she country or was she rock n roll? In the days when our latest recruit to the AVID Pop vocalist hall of fame was singing, genres didn’t seem quite so important. She was just a great singer! Part of the answer of course lies in the titles of our five fine selections, take another look above. In fact, Connie Francis was a fabulously versatile singer who happened to come along during an exciting and fast moving time in the world of musical entertainment. She was easy listening to begin with certainly (Who’s Sorry Now), but as the 50s moved along she caught the rock n roll train, and thanks to her pals The Everly Brothers also joined the country and western hootenanny. As rock n roll waned and became sanitised losing Elvis, Chuck, Little Richard, and Jerry Lee, her sound was perfect for the pop world of Fabian and Ricky Nelson etc. So, Connie moved across many musical genres, but what stood out in all of them was her remarkable voice, “exciting” indeed. She doesn’t rival Madonna as the biggest selling female singer of all time for nothing!
