Love is Nothin' But Blues
Dick Williams (1926-2018) was the older brother of Andy, and along with Bob and Don, they appeared as the Williams Brothers quartet to perform on radio shows, movies and with singer-coach Kay Thompson in a popular and entertaining nightclub act. For six years the Thompson-Williams alliance went from one triumph to another. Following their dissolution in 1952, they all went their separate ways. By then, Dick had started a solo career, when he joined the Harry James’ Orchestra two years earlier, and during his career, he sang on hundreds of commercials and did choral arrangements for Andy. "Love is Nothin' But Blues" —his impressive debut album— came out in 1960. In it, Dick applies his pleasant baritone voice to a flock of standards. Some are slow in the ballad style, but most of them move along at a light swinging pace, with a lot of rhythm, and some nice backing by the Jack Marshall orchestra.
My Heart Belongs to Only You
Larry Hovis (1936-2003) was the singer and actor best known for playing Sergeant Carter on the 1960s television sitcom “Hogan’s Heroes.” Even though he recorded some successful singles, "My Heart Belongs to Only You" was his only album. He picked his favorite romantic ballads and some popular up-tempo tunes, as well as a couple of fine originals, and sang them all with remarkable ease and a flair all his own. Jack Marshall’s music in the background provides smoothly understated support, sparkled with fine solos by trumpeter Don Fagerquist and trombonist Milt Bernhart.
