It's Dawn Again
Stormy Hunter | Encinitas, California USA | 11/04/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Although it's the later albums of The Three Suns (such as "Movin' and Groovin'") that have secured their reputation among lounge music fans, I find their earlier work (such as this volume) much more satisfying. For one thing, this is the Suns as a guitar/organ/accordion trio, pure and simple. The music is as funereal as it is snappy; as creepy as it is joyous; a combination not easy to achieve. Alfred Hitchcock didn't choose the music of The Three Suns for his 1948 thriller "Rope" for no reason.

The musicianship of these guys is phenomenal; they could play anything. Although the sound is early 50's mono, it's more than adequate. The tracks were expertly remastered from broadcast transcription discs (not 78s). This is music from the dawn of the lounge music genre, permeated with the atmosphere of its time, but somehow also timeless. It's a curious but very satisfying musical cocktail."
