Title: Here’s Dorothy Shay
Artist: Dorothy Shay
Catalogue No: SEPIA 1078
Barcode: 5055122110780
Release Date: 4 September 2006

With the chart success of her recording Feudin' And Fightin' Dorothy Shay was destined to continue to perform songs in a similar style and found it difficult to escape the association with country music for the remainder of her professional life.

Born in Jacksonville, Florida she came to prominence in the 1940's billed as 'The Park Avenue Hillbilly', singing novelty, somewhat risqué, country style songs while elegantly dressed in the most sophisticated of evening gowns. Feudin' And Fightin', Two-Gun Harry From Tucumcari and Makin' Love Mountain Style are typical examples of the material she was featuring in her nightclub and radio appearances at the time. You Broke Your Promise was one of four songs Dorothy Shay sang in the Abbott and Costello 'Universal' film Comin' Round The Mountains. As the title may suggest this was a hillbilly romp with Shay billed as "Dorothy - The Manhattan Hillbilly", not much different from real life.

When long playing records came into being Shay recorded a couple of ten inch LPs. One long player which had titles such as Sagebrush Sadie and Howlinest, Hootinest Gal stayed in the familiar country music territory. However the second LP had the advantage of that creative genius Billy May in charge of the music and these sessions, mainly show songs, gave her the opportunity to divert from the cornfields and show the more sophisticated style she was so obviously capable of portraying. Although the 'Western' theme is present with music from Annie Get Your Gun and Oklahoma!, Shay proves a versatile and confident performer of Broadway standards such as Take Back Your Mink and Always True To You In My Fashion. Material from both LPs are included on this CD.


She appeared in many television films, often Westerns such as The Virginian and for a number of years played the part of Thelma in the popular series The Waltons.
