Synopsis

Album Description
Jaye P. Morgan may be forever associated with The Gong Show in the minds of younger generations, but this pop vocalist and former girl singer with Hank Penny's band racked up a healthy string of hits in the '50s. Duets with Perry Como and Eddy Arnold, and her career hit 'That's All I Want From You,' are present on this 20-track anthology of Morgan's RCA years. Also of note is the exciting 1955 hit 'Pepper Hot Baby,' a song that has become something of a minor rock & roll classic among collectors. Jaye P. Morgan on RCA passes up some of her lesser hits in favor of more obscure selections, but all of the important singles are here on this effective single-disc anthology. Collectors' Choice. 1997.

Jaye P. Morgan on RCA
01/12/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"From the moment that I heard "The Longest Walk" for the first time (and that was in the early seventies), I became an avid fan of Jaye P. Morgan, buying her records whenever I could find them.Well, here is a collection of her finest 45s (and one album cut) recorded for RCA in the 1950s. "The Longest Walk" , needless to say, never sounded better. Many cuts are her sides with the Hugo Winterhalter Orchestra. But one outstanding number is "Blind Date" written by Leiber- Stoller. Her plaintive delivery of that chestnut melts my heart. As for the rest of the selections, well they won't disappoint either. The song "The I'll Be Happy" (in stereo) was lifted from her second LP for the label "Just You,Just Me". The LP is a five star knock-out, and currently available as an import.Her best work did not end at RCA, however. She signed with MGM Records in 1959 where she recorded the exemplary "Slow & Easy" as well as three more fine LPs including a delightful country album.However, her best sides for that label were actually released on two 45s. The first was "Will He Like Me" from the broadway show "She Loves Me." The second was her quintessential version of the standard "I'm Nobody's Sweetheart." She really lets loose on this song. The orchestra, conducted by Marty Paiche on both songs, hits a home run.I'm still hoping that Polygram, which I assume still owns the MGM masters, will release these records in the future. Jaye P.'s fans have waited long enough."
Excellent album, Jaye P. Morgan is at her peak.

"Jaye P. Morgan's clean, crisp singing style is apparent and the sound is good on this album. Jaye P. sings with a style that shows much creativity as she uses subtle changes in each song. If she were around today, she could adapt her style and be comtempory in today's ballad music. She sings with much heart and sensitivity on the ballad songs and sings with a bright, fun heart on the more upbeat songs. They bring back the 50's with a bang. She was so popular for a few years and then disappeared. This album shows her very unique style and is a must for any Jaye P. Morgan fan. It's good to hear from her again."
Great music from an excellent song stylist!
