Rhonda Fleming Sings Just For You
Catalogue No.: SEPIA 1112
Release Date: 19 May 2008
Although Rhonda Fleming has starred in over 40 films, countless television shows and stage productions, what most people don't realise is that she is also an extremely talented singer. Rhonda had trained as a classical singer but once her film career had taken off the singing she loved took a back seat although every so often she was given the chance to sing in a film.
This was the case in 1949 when Bing Crosby cast her opposite him in "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court" that she got a chance to show her musical side to movie audiences. In the film she sang the lilting duet "Once and For Always" with Bing along with a stunning solo number, "When is Sometime?". Thankfully both were recorded and are included here for your
Her recording career picked up speed in 1954 when she joined Jane Russell, Connie Haines and Beryl Davis on an album of spirituals entitled "Make A Joyful Noise Unto the Lord". For this CD we have chosen all four of Rhonda's contributions from that LP collection for
listeners who appreciate well-blended harmonies.
In 1957 Rhonda was invited to record an album of standards. Entitled simply "Rhonda", the release was championed by critics and fans alike and proved once and for always that she could add song stylist to her long list of accolades. The twelve songs on that album form the bulk of her recording career and are included here, from the saucy "Baby, Baby All the Time" to the delicious ballad "When I Fall in Love" to the light, swingy strains of "I've Got You Under My Skin". Together they illustrate her great versatility and warmth as a singer; qualities that well deserve to be revisited. Rounding out this release are other favourites including the buoyant "My Heart Cries For You," a moody interpretation of "Cold Rain," a rhythmic jaunt down "42nd Street" and a "Gershwin Medley" to end all medleys!
This has been issued with the full support of Rhonda who provided photos from her personal collection and some rare private recordings, thus enabling
listeners today the opportunity to enjoy her beautiful and beguiling singing voice once again.
