LP Artwork: Dinah Shore/Bouquet of Blues
There are certain covers which simply are a sign of the times and this 1956 release by Dinah Shore is one of them. It's right up there with her close friend Frank Sinatra's image on the seminal Songs for Swinging' Lovers! album and other issues that year.
The arrangements were by Frank DeVol, Harry Zimmerman and Henri Rene, and title track is featured in this week's program - complete with the haunting sound effect of lonely footsteps at the beginning and end of the recording.
