Perkins, Anthony - Anthony Perkins
(Pathé AT-1139 Fra-64 VG+ 300:-)

Anthony Perkins was an American actor, singer. He played the role of Norman Bates in Alfred Hitchcock's suspense thriller "Psycho", which made him an influential figure in pop culture and in horror films.

Perkins released three pop music albums and several singles in 1957 and 1958 on Epic and RCA Victor under the name Tony Perkins. This 10" vinyl contains songs in both English and French, recorded with the William Goldberg Orchestra.
Piaf, Edith - L'intégrale De Ses Enregistrements
(Columbia 2C 152-72085/98 Fra-80 VG+ 800:-)

Édith Giovanna Gassion was noted as France's national chanteuse and one of the country's most widely known international stars. Piaf's music was often autobiographical, and she specialized in chanson réaliste and torch ballads about love, loss and sorrow.

This 14LP Box Set comes in a unique red velvet box with silver engraved 'signature' title cover. Includes a 24 page full colour booklet with photos and song credits.
Tormé & Frances Faye, Mel - Porgy & Bess
(Bethlehem EXLP-1 US-56 VG+ 400:-)

This three-LP box set is an unusual concept; virtually the full production of "Porgy and Bess" is re-enacted in a jazz setting.

Al "Jazzbo" Collins does a surprisingly effective narrative, and key roles are played by Mel Torme (Porgy), Frances Faye (Bess), Betty Roche (Clara), Johnny Hartman (Crown), Frank Rosolino (Jake), Joe Derise (Honey Man), Bob Dorough (Crab Man), George Kirby (Sportin' Life) and Sallie Blair (Serena).

With backing from the Bethlehem Orchestra (conducted and arranged by Russ Garcia), the Australian Jazz Quintet, the Pat Moran Quartet, and a combo headed by drummer Stan Levey, along with a cameo appearance (for the opening fanfare) by Duke Ellington's Orchestra, the results are certainly musical.

Original US 3LP Box Set; sleeve has the original handkerchief stuffed into the "back pocket".
