• Mary SMALL & Vic MIZZY - I Like It!

The first-ever CD compilation featuring Mary Small, once known as 'The Little Girl With the Big Voice', a former child star of 1930's vaudeville and radio who made dozens of recordings throughout her seven-decade career but until now, has never had an album of her own. The focus of this collection is on the long series of singles she made as an adult headliner in theaters and nightclubs during her 20-year marriage to TV and film composer Vic Mizzy. A popular songwriter with many hits to his credit, Mizzy is perhaps best remembered today from his catchy title themes for the classic sitcoms 'Green Acres', 'Petticoat Junction' and 'The Addams Family', as well as a string of William Castle movie thrillers and Don Knotts comedies. During the fruitful years of their husband-and-wife collaboration, he did all of Mary's radio, TV and stage arrangements and also wrote and conducted nearly all of the 29 songs contained in this new Jasmine set. Among them are such jukebox favourites as 'ROMANCE ME', 'DIDJA EVER', 'IMMEDIATELY', 'RAZZLE DAZZLE', 'DINO' and the title track, many written with Mizzy's frequent collaborator Manny Curtis. They re-introduced Mary to a new and younger audience in the 1950's and now thanks to this digitally-remastered CD, they can do it again 60 years later. Mary Small was one of the more talented and distinctive vocalists of her time and she sounds as fresh and exciting today as she did back then.
