Blue Velvet

Music by Lee Morris and Bernie Wayne

Originally Performed by Tony Bennett

"Blue Velvet" is a popular song written and composed in 1950 by Bernie Wayne and Lee Morris. A top 20 hit for Tony Bennett in its original 1951 version, the song has since been re-recorded many times, with a 1963 version by Bobby Vinton reaching No. 1. Songwriter Bernie Wayne was inspired to begin writing "Blue Velvet" on a 1951 visit to Richmond, Virginia where he stayed at the Jefferson Hotel: at a party at the hotel Wayne continually caught sight of a female guest dressed in blue velvet with whom he would have a holiday romance

    Release Date: 1950

Blue Stars : Rhapsody in Harmony : 00  1 CD : 3030

Blue Stars : Rhapsody in Harmony

The Blue Stars recorded and performed from the mid-1970s to their excellent a cappella recordings for the Clifton label in the early 90s. This CD contains the 16 cuts from the United in Group Harmony Association Award-winning 1991 release "Blue Velvet," plus 9 previously unreleased cuts recorded from 1994 to 1996. The group's covers concentrate on legendary groups and classic 50s versions. This is exuberant, street-corner doo-wop and lots of it, heavy on the harmony! There's a list of the 25 songs in the liner notes, followed by the name of the group that recorded it, the label, the year and the member of the Stars who's singing lead. From relatively unknown hits like the Marcels' "Sweet Was The Wine," the Five Keys' "Deep In My Heart" and the 4 Vagabonds' "Rosy the Riveter" to better known hits like the Clovers' "Blue Velvet" and the Chords' "Sh-Boom," this is all authentic, soulful stuff. The Stars shine on "Rhapsody!"

Songlist: Sweet Was the Wine, Deep In my Heart, That's the Way it Goes, Hold me, Chill me, Thrill me, My Heart is Yours, Stormy Weather, Moonlight in Vermont, Blue Velvet, The Clock, Life is but A Dream, I Won't Be the Fool, Rosy the Riviter, Six Nights A Week, Sh-Boom, I'm Just a Fool, Dream A While, Blue Lover, Lovers Never say Goodbye, Gee, After New Year's Eve, Walking My baby Back home, A Lovely Way to Spend an Evening, Count Every Star, Crazy Over You, Tenderly

Cambridge Chord Company : All The Right Moves : 00  1 CD : Paul Davies

Cambridge Chord Company : All The Right Moves

"Moves" is the second CD by 1999-2000 champion British Barbershop chorus CCC, and it gets off on the right foot with a hilarious "Mother-In-Law Medley" that puts new words and meanings to "Yes Sir, That's My Baby," "Our Love Is Here to Stay" and "Hello Mother, Hello Father." 13 winning tunes follow, some favorites: the classic "Blue Velvet," "Just A Cottage Small," "Here's That Rainy Day," "Sunday Medley," "All the Things You Are," "Blue Shadows on the Trail," the folk hit "Today" (While the Blossoms Still Cling to the Vine), "I Wish You Love," the Motown hit "My Girl," and "Last Laugh Medley." We like to think of CCC as the "Little David" chorus, 40 guys outsinging choruses 2 or 3 times their size. "Moves" is great entertainment by a very special Barbershop chorus from Britain!

Songlist: Mother-In-Law Medley, Blue Velvet, Just A Cottage Small, Here's That Rainy Day, I Only Have Eyes for You, Sunday Medley, All the Things You Are, Blue Shadows on the Trail, Today (While the Blossoms Still Cling to the Vine), Running Scared, I Wish You Love, My Girl, Skye Boat Song, Last Laugh Medley

Keepsake : The Entertainer : 00  1 CD

Keepsake : The Entertainer

Hailing from Florida, the much-acclaimed Keepsake are an exciting addition to our catalog. They have dedicated this recording to Charles "Bub" Thomas of Walt Disney World's "Dapper Dans," and a marvelous tribute it is. Winners of the 1992 Quartet Championships, the group's stellar sound is sublime. The group's use of dynamics, the arrangements (by a who's-who of arranging talent) and their choice of material-most impressive all. Their exquisite "Lost In the Stars" (written by Kurt Weill and Maxwell Anderson) is a fondant of perfect notes. "Blue Velvet" is similarly rendered and has a signature coda; speaking of which, the ending of "How Deep Is the Ocean" is a show-stopper. The traditional barbershop fare, including "Make 'Em Laugh," "I Love a Piano" and "The Entertainer," is of course flawless. Don't miss this one!

Songlist: Make 'Em Laugh, Penthouse Serenade, Eyes Medley, Lost In The Stars, I Love A Piano, (I Love You) For Sentimental Reasons, Heather On The Hill, Blue Velvet, Drivin' Me Crazy, My Romance, Royal Garden Blues, Somewhere, The Entertainer, How Deep Is The Ocean

The Moonglows : 20th Century Masters

They just don't make 'em like this anymore. The emotion wrung from every note, the grit and rawness. The Moonglows were a seminal vocal group in the development of the sound between the vocal jazz and jubilee groups to the then ermerging doo wop sound. Smooth harmonies on this enjoyable recording.

Songlist: Sincerely, Most of All, In My Diary, We Go Together, When I'm With You, See Saw, Please Send Me Someone to Love, (I'm Afraid) The Masquerade Is Over, Blue Velvet, Over and Over Again , Sweeter Than Words, The Ten Commandments of Love
