Variety Offered in
New Albums

By RED ROBINSON
(Vancouver Sun Jan. 31, 1958)



   Here are some of the latest albums:
   COME FLY WITH ME -- Frank Sinatra, Capitol.  A musical trip around the world.
   C'MON DANCE -- Earl Bostle, King.  A good package album for party-goers.
   TONY PERKINS -- Epic.  Not the world's greatest singer but his approach is fresh.
   PEGGY LEE AND BENNY GOODMAN -- Harmony, Columbia.  Old songs done up in a swinging manner.
   WORD JAZZ -- Ken Nordine, Dot.  Fred Katz and his out of this world sounds, with Ken Nordine and his interstellar word expressions.
   WARM -- Johnny Mathis, Columbia.  "San Francisco's second earthquake."

Boys From Nashville Make
Country Music Pay Dividends


By RED ROBINSON

(Vancouver Sun Jan. 31, 1958)

   The two Everly Brothers from Nashville, Tenn., have set themselves up in the country and western field by appearing on the Grand Ole Oprey show on WSM, Nashville, headquarters for country and western music.
   This country institution recognized the talent of the boys a long time ago but the continent as a whole was not exposed to them until Archie Blyer of Cadence Records in New York signed the boys up to do a song called "Bye Bye Love," a country song by Boudieaux Bryant.
   Most of the companies in New York laughed at Archie for his decision.
   But the song took off and in a very few weeks it became the No. 1 song in the land.
   This established the boys in the pop field and since this time they have had other million-sellers.
   Their latest bid for the million-mark is a song called "This Little Girl of Mine."
   Don and Phil are two handsome fellows who were in Vancouver in November with one of the big touring shows.
   They have a tremendous way with them.

    Jim French of Radio KING in Seattle says the whole music scene is going through a period of transition.  He says that Rock will not fade for years but the music scene as a whole will be "filtered with Rock in the background and ballads with a beat in the foreground."
