Morgana King - For You, For Me, For Evermore (1956)
Vinyl reissue of the classic mono LP of Morgana King's classic "For You, For Me, For Evermore". If you love orchestral softer crooner style like Helen Merrill then this little devil is right down your alley!
Orchestration was by Richard Hayman and his touch is pure magic and fits King's gentle voice to perfection. Interesting note is that she released "In the wee small hours" the same year as did Frank Sinatra.
Some of the songs featured on this album were used in movies too so likely you have heard a tune or two from this album.
According to the cover "except for advances in technical equipment in master cutting and vinyl pressing we have kept as close as possible to the original production".
Jazz enthusiasts will also adore this album and her voice.
