Title: Speak To Me Of Love
Artist:
Tony Martin
Catalogue No: SEPIA 1097

Barcode: 5055122110972
Release Date: 2 July 2007

Of all the outstanding vocalists from the Golden Age of Popular Music Tony Martin is one of the longest lasting with a recording career spanning six decades and placing 38 entries in the US charts. Speak To Me Of Love was an LP recorded in 1956 plus tracks from one of Tonys films, show tunes and pop songs, none of which to our knowledge have been available digitally make up the 24 tracks here.

Tony Martin was born in California in 1912. Playing in a school band it wasnt long before he formed his own outfit, The Clarion Four where they played the Palace Hotel in San Francisco. Travelling to the Worlds Fair in Chicago in 1934 Tony found work in the Windy City for a year and returned to Hollywood hoping to break into movies. A part in Follow The Fleet led to a contract with 20th Century Fox and soon Tony was not only making movies but signed to Decca Records as a vocalist. When America joined the war Tony enlisted where he was decorated with a bronze star. He resumed after the war with more films and a contract with Mercury and then RCA Victor. It was at this time he married Cyd Charisse. Together with Cyd, Tony formed a night club act in the Sixties and as late as the Nineties they were performing together at Londons Café Royal.

As you would expect from an album entitled Speak To Me Of Love these are ballads full of romance and standards that have stood the test of time. Some are romantic (the title track), some are bitter sweet (When The World Was Young). Following on from the album tracks come a selection of recordings that havent been available for over half a century. Are You Just A Beautiful Dream and The Closer You Are are from Tonys film Two Tickets To Broadway. Where Did the Night Go is a delightful ballad from the hit show Wish You Were Here whilst Padam Padam was a number with the typical French feel that was popular at the time.
