• Bea WAIN - My Reverie

Bea Wain's major successes were as Larry Clinton's band singer, most famously with My reverie, one of four American number one hits. This compilation contains some of her Larry Clinton tracks and some of her solo music after she quit Larry's band, all in chronological order. Her solo tracks are not that different in style from her band music. Like so many of the band singers of the time, Bea could swing, though she could also do the love songs. The songs here include three of those number one hits (My reverie, Heart and soul, Deep purple) though Cry baby cry, their first number one, is omitted. You can find it on a Larry Clinton compilation, along with many other hits they had together, some of which are also on this CD, but most are not. You may remember Deep purple - it was a big American hit for Nino Tempo and April Stevens in the sixties, and again for Donny and Marie Osmond in the seventies - this is the version that is probably best known in Britain. Bea and Larry's band did one of the original versions. There were several versions released at around the same time (in 1939) but this version outsold them all, by a considerable margin. There are other big hits from her Larry Clinton days here too - Old folks, The masquerade is over and My heart belongs to Daddy - but most of this CD is filled with her solo music. Bea only had four solo hits, but only three of them (Do I worry?, My sister and I, Kiss the boys goodbye) are included. The other, I'm nobody's baby, is missing, but it doesn't matter - this is a brilliant compilation of Bea's music. Of the non-hits, my favorite song here is Oh you crazy moon, but every track is wonderful.
