One of the greatest musical film soundtracks of the 50s – a great little record based around the compositions of Cole Porter, and featuring vocals by Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Louis Armstrong, and Grace Kelly! The film itself is a musical remake of The Philadelpha Story – one that updates the story a bit, and sets it in Newport at the time of the jazz festival. Louis Armstrong's music is plenty great, but the vocals are even better – and the film is especially noteworthy as an on-screen meeting between Sinatra and Crosby, who come nicely head to head on the tune "Well Did You Evah". This CD version expands the whole thing even more than previously – with spoken bits by Kelly, Crosby, and Sinatra, and a few bonus tracks as well. Titles include "True Love" by Bing Crosby & Grace Kelly, "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" by Frank Sinatra & Celeste Holm, "Well Did You Evah" by Bing Crosby & Frank Sinatra, "Mind If I Make Love To You" by Frank Sinatra & Grace Kelly, "High Society Calypso" by Louis Armstrong, "Little One" by Bing Crosby & Louis Armstrong, and "Now You Has Jazz" by Bing Crosby & Louis Armstrong. (Sealed – feels like a 60s pressing.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
