Joanie Sommers - Sommers' Season [Mono 1963]

VS-88041


1963 / Warner Bros. / W 1504
This is a delightful, seasonal-themed collection of numbers performed with gusto and charm by the beloved Joanie Sommers! I first learned of her brilliance when I picked up some Japanese-mastered albums whist visiting Tokyo last year, and since then I've been obsessed with this album in particular and tracked down a mono copy. Rare as moonshine, whatever that means! Tuck in - and check out my fave song here - When Winter Comes!

Haha, a while back I was thinking, "You know, I think the Shipwreck guy would love Joanie", and what do ya know! Ah, the few and the proud know Joanie's got the stuff. A truly under-appreciated talent who could hold her own against 'most any '60s singer I reckon.

Nice to see you're back and better than ever here! And starting with Paul Williams too, don't ya know! Keep on bringing on the good stuff, this is truly an oasis of awesome music!
