The Soundtrack For The Baby Boomer Generation

Step back to a time when singers were as bright as the stars in the heavens
and the music they sang was really swingin'. Stacks of wax to fit every occasion!

Rare 45's

Welcome to Music For Every Mood. As the title suggests, there will be a lot of music, and of varying styles. I'm digging through my collection of 45's and most of them are from the 1950's. There will be a lot of female voices represented, such as Julie London (my fave) Peggy Lee, Patti Page, Sue Raney, Debbie Reynolds, Doris Day, Kitty La Nier, The Lennon Sisters, Lily Ann Carol, Caterina Valente, Abbe Lane, Kitty Kallen, Dolores Gray, The Paulette Sisters, Jaye P. Morgan, April Stevens, Denise Lor, Betty Johnson, Connie Francis, Dodie Stevens and one of my all-time favorites, Joan Weber. Well, with that range of artists, I hope you get the idea. And, I hope you come back often to see what I've posted.
A lot of these artists aren't represented on CD and the songs that I hope to share will be next to impossible to find. You won't find them on any CD compilation, so the only hope you'll have of hearing them is to either buy a collection of records from a retired deejay, or just get them here.
I'm not sure how each single will be represented, as there aren't covers for them - just non-descript sleeves. Maybe I'll post a scan of the record label, I'm not sure. If anyone has any suggestions, feel free to speak up. I will try to do my best to come up with facts about the singer's life and any data on the recording itself, if possible. I'm not promising anything, but we'll see.

So, prepare yourself for.... music for every mood!

Just posting some selections from my collection of 45's. The key is that they are songs I really like to listen to, so I thought others might like to hear them too.
